I am American size 28" waist (5'7.5" and 136#) and wear a 29 in Dainese and 28 in Shift for riding jeans. These I ordered 30x32". I really like that you can order them a little longer which is best for riding. They look very good and are slim. The fit is good for me and I am on the skinny side. The knee protectors are adjustable, but even in the lowest setting they are too high for me by about and inch. I may need to take them to the tailor. Maybe, it's because I am really a 31" inseam....The denim is rather thin compared to my other riding Jeans. Overall, price is good and for the in town/going out riding they are good. For anything more serious I would recommend more protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Wolfman upgraded the fabric to 22oz vinyl for the body and incredible 34oz for the sides and uses a waterproof webbing for the top opening to prevent water wicking into the bag. Wolfman also uses a new innovative design which allows the bag to easily expand, making loading and unloading a breeze.

I bought it prior to going on an 8 day trip in Costa RIca. I managed to mount the medium bag on an XR250 Tornado without a rack by putting the straps on the grab handles. The medium is over 40 liters - in retrospect I should have gotten a small because I will mostly use it on my CRF230L or other dirt bikes (I have a Givi hard case setup on my VFR). The quality of the Wolfman bag is much better than the Givi 40 liter dry bag that my friend had with him. I highly recommend it!

I am 5'8" and 135# with about a 38" chest and the small fits very well, like a European cut. It is warm and is supposed to be both water and wind resistant. Haven't tried it in the rain, but have worn it also without a jacket. Seems well constructed, warm and thin. Would highly recommend it as it is much less expensive than the Rev'it! equivalent (and I have mostly Rev'it! gear at home)

So, I have switched to Dainese pants from Rev'it as Rev'it seems to be tailoring more to the American market lately. I lost some weight and have a 28" waist (5'8" and 135 lbs). Rev'it size small is too small and even the latest XS didn't seem much smaller than S and was too big. I bought these pants in Euro 44 and these are very snug with the liner in. Very good looking and comfortable. I have not had a chance to ride them as the weather was still good and I have many pants (gear junky!), but I think I am slowly converting to Dainese for my textiles as the cut is definitely more European than Rev'it (as of late).

I have the red and black edition. Got it on sale/clearance at Revzilla. Added the optional back protector. I have a Dainese with perforations so wanted something warmer which this is. It is great to go on rides in town when we go out. I have gotten complimented on this jacket multiple times. Fits nice and snug - European cut. Great buy at the price I purchased it!

Looks great, price is good and has the bubbles to keep cool. Two straps - abdominal and chest. A Dainese bag for this price! It is also not too big, which is what I wanted. Durability is to be determined, but so far happy with the purchase. Came in from Italy to Revzilla and to my home in about 7 days - not bad!

I am the happy owner of the Desmo GTX and the Flat V2 from Puma. I wanted something a little less aggressive for the street and with more protection than the Flat V2. I noticed the 33% off sale and got excited. Fit is a little longer than my other two - I probably could have bought a 42 where my other two Pumas are 43. There is no zipper - only Velcro for closure. The upper boot feels pretty rough against the skin. All in all, probably would have gotten the model in between the desmo and the model I got.
