I have the HiViz yellow which is a real knockout. The sun shade does a great job so I no longer have to wear sunglasses while riding. Very high quality face shield mechanism. If you have a Sena or other Headset you will need to mount it with 3M tape. The bracket for my Sena will not work because the slider switch for sun shield is on the left side. Raising the face shield an inch with the sun shield down creates a lot of turbulence around your eyes. Great could be better. Excellent paint and finish.

I live in Florida so this is my go to jacket from December - March. Too hot for Florida summers. Leaving for New England in september for 3 week tour and this is my pick. Upscale style and excellent quality. Some down side is the left and right pockets are very small.

Rukka Outlast Shirt The Rukka Outlast Shirt works to keep the wearers temperature not too hot... not too cold... but just right, over a broad range of environments and activity levels. When your activity level or the outside temperature increase, the Outlast thermocules that contain the phase-change paraffin begin to change from a solid to a liquid which provides you with a comfortable sensation of thermal equilibrium. The energy required to activate this process comes from your warm body or rising ambient temperatures. When you begin to cool down, Outlast thermocules begin to change back from a liquid to a solid. In this phase change, the energy that was absorbed by the thermocules while you were active is returned to you.

I like traveling light so the Rukka shirt looked to be a good shirt to keep warm in winter and cool in summer. Bought an XL and sizing seemed American. Very, very light and easy packing. First time I wore it was on a wintry weather day(44 degrees - I live in Florida) with my Dainese jacket(liner in) and was quite comfortable zipping along at 65 mph. Haven't tested the hot weather side. I intend to pack 2 of these for long trips with the idea of washing overnight. It does dry quickly.

although I live in Florida it does get cold down here. I used these gloves in early January with a temperature of 41 degrees. My hands were cold. My Ducati does not have heated grips. I would recommend these gloves for temps 50 - 70. I believe for temps under 45 heated gloves are the answer. Heated grips help but really only warm your palms not your extremities.

These are my go to pants for our local club riding in Florida. Black was only color available at time of ordering.The knee and hip pads do offer a feeling of security in event of a mild crash. Very stylish and better than jeans.

Bought this bag for a trip to Scotland and N Ireland. One really important thing to look for in a bag are good rollers and the bag's ability to stand up vertically. A bag that is always falling over whenever you let go of the handle is a real pain. You can pack 2 boots, helmet, leather jacket, pants, shirts, undies, etc.
Very well made. I did check out other gear bags at a local store and found the $110 bags not worth the money. Nice styling, too.

I was a little hesitant on the sizing since I normally wear a 42. I checked the chart and they called for a 41. The 41 was a perfect fit for my 8.5. Quite easy to slip on and off after you get the hang of it. They may not be for the track but as an everyday boot they are perfect. Styling is exceptional. Sometime I wonder if I have an addiction to Dainese - gloves, pants, jacket, boots. The stuff is so superior. They fit the American body.

Wow! I have riding a lot in this jacket for the last month. I looked for a long time because of the price but decided to go ahead with the purchase. Absolutely no regrets. Supple leather with incredible protection and excellent venting. I live in Florida but cruise a lot out west. The jacket can be a bit on the cool side in the chest area in the low 70s but the ventilation allows you to ride in the mid 80s. The jacket liner adds warmth into the 40s. I am using the G2 back protector with it. Dainese is in a class of its own.
