I have had this jackets for exactly one month and have ridden in it without the thermal/rain liner, in either a tshirt or a thermal fleece underneath.
Bang for the Buck: I think the jacket is a good value. The only thing that would make it an amazing value were if it had waterproof outer instead of a waterproof liner. If it had this, it would probably cost considerably more.
Style: It is a 3/4 length jacket, so you won't be stylin' unless you are with your ADV crowd. You will get old people saying you remind them of a show called "power rangers" that they used to watch with their grandkids. It is HIVIZ (at least mine was).
Comfort: The cut is very comfortable. It layed flat and did not rise up in the shoulders as I expected a 3/4 length jacket would. It is perfect for weather under 75-80 degrees, anything above that and I will wear my Rev'It Air. It has cinch-straps at the biceps so that fabric will not flap in the air.
Protection and Durability: Untested. My expectations are of my Rev'It Air, which lasted through a 25mph lowside.
Airflow: Works up until 80 degrees, then I would want a mesh jacket. Arm zippers are great for air airflow. I wish that it had a zipping back vent and front vents that zipped open horizontally as well as vertically.
Features: I like the collar hook, waterproof front pockets, and removable rain liner. Otherwise, nothing to write home about.
Fit is normal. I am 5'10" 175 pounds and wear a 40R suit jacket. Medium fit well with and without the liners. I would not go any larger in that zone.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I put this back protector in my Rev'It Air Jacket.
Bang for the Buck:
The equipment is $40, low on the totem pole for expense of motorcycle gear. On top of that, it is CE Level 2 for protection, so it is not like you are paying less and getting less protection.
Style:
Typical slip-in back protector style. I wish the jacket companies would find a way to make the protector pocket extend longer, further down the spine. This isn't a fault of the back protector, it was designed to go into the current pockets.
Comfort:
It's a rubber/foam type material and it contours to the body, you don't really know it is there except for the added bulk it takes up in the jacket.
Protection & Durability:
The staff showed me how the material itself functions regarding force absorption. The staffer rolled the D3O over her hand, took a hammer, and whacked the area. She did not wince in pain, so I tried it too. I felt the pressure of the whack, but it was distributed across my entire hand instead of just the pressure point of the hammer.
Air flow:
I've been riding in 95 degree heat lately, so I would definitely want more airflow. However, it's probably more the ambient air temperature that is discomforting that the airflow of the back protector. From the factory, most of the airflow holes are sealed, you will have to cut them open with an razor blade.
Features:
-
Fit:
Fit is large for the Rev'It Air Jacket, but can be trimmed down to fit into the pocket quite easily. I have ridden wit it in the rain too and it doesn't absorb water.
I would purchase this product again and would recommend to my friends and family.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The DIRT summer glove offers the perfect balance between protection and ventilation. Lightweight mesh and perforated leather parts allow air to flow freely along the hands, keeping you cool. The level of safety is exceptional for a mesh glove, thanks to high-quality leather, dual-comp palm slider, Albany cowhide hard-shell knuckle, and PU-injected finger knuckles. The DIRT is comfort and safety rolled into one glove. PROTECTION Outer shell Automan stretch, air stretch mesh, goatskin, Albany cowhide (PU coated) Visibility reflection Protection Albany cowhide hard-shell knuckle, PU injected finger knuckles, EVA foam, Dual-comp palm slider Lining tri-fleece liner ERGONOMIC Fit tour fit Adjustability adjustment tab Ventilation ventilation panels Features short cuff

I had bought these gloves for my dad a year ago and had casually used them when I would ride his bike around town. Gloves are great for the money. Fit is perfect for my hands. The only thing I wish they had was some sort of hard armor in the gauntlet area. I ended up liking them so much, I bought a pair for myself.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this boot as my first boot. I was pretty much just looking for fit, comfort, and protection.
Fit: I wear anywhere between a 9 and a 10 in shoes. My vibram 5 fingers are a size 42. Likewise, my boots are size 42. Lengthwise they fit perfectly. I have a wide forefoot and a narrow heel/ankle. These boots seem to have been made with the opposite in mind: it is slightly narrow in the front and wide at the heel. As a result, I do get some heel lift. To prevent this I am just wearing socks for now.
Comfort: The boots are definitely comfortable. The past few days when I have been riding in below 60 degree weather, I was glad I did not purchase the perforated boots. However anything over 80 and my feet sweat considerably. Boots are comfortable, I feel a little pressure on my pinky toe, that is it. I suppose pants are to be tucked into this boot? I adjusted the velcro calf straps tight enough so I could wear under jeans.
Protection: This was the selling point on the boot. The hinge ankle system is neat, and although it probably is not strong enough to make a significant difference, it does add an extra few mm's of plastic protection on top of the ankle. Also, heel cup is incredibly sturdy.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am a new rider and was searching for something that was visible, fitting, comfortable, and protective. This being said, I will comment on each of these categories below:
Visibility: I was hoping that this was more white than gray. Was originally looking at hiviz jackets but they either did not fit well orit wasn't particularly wat I was looking for. there is little reflective material in the jacket o, or at leas less than I wanted.
Fit: I wear a 15.5 collar and have 33 inch length arms. A size 42 suit jacket and 30 inch waist. The medium fit me perfectly. I also triedn the Olympia bonneville and the dainese shotgun. Olympia was definitely cut for heavier people with larger waists. The dainese was perfect, slightly tighter than the air, but I couldn't justify the cost. I love the adjustable collar on the air. Fits my chicken nek. Comfort gors here as well.
Protection: feels solid. Nice elboand shoulde armor. I wish it had more on the back or could ft the sastec. modification
Yes, I recommend this product.

Along with a helmet, this was the other piece of safety equipment that I purchased for the MSF course. Sub-75 dollars this is little out there that seems to be as well constructed and stylish without screaming attention to them.
Construction: leather all the way around, even in between the fingers. I wish it had a little more padding on the palms and wrists, but I suppose these are summer gloves and that would ruin the airflow.
Style: I liked how there is hard knuckle protection, but it is not exposed with carbon fiber as is typical to racing inspired gloves.
Sizing: I wear small marmot ski gloves for skiing during the winter. I would consider my hands to be small. The gloves I purchased were a medium, they fit my hand quite well, but still snug. I am waiting for them to break in. I did have some tightness on the first ride and I know the will loosen as they get broken in. All this being said, they probably run a size small.
Yes, I recommend this product.
