I'm 6'2", 185 lbs. I bought both the jacket and pants in size 52. They fit well although I wore ankle-high boots, and the pants rode up exposing a little bit of leg to the wind. No biggie, with full-size boots I'm sure they will be fine. I rode for 2 hours in 33 degree (F) with no windscreen in perfect comfort. I didn't need any extra covering for my neck. Jacket cut placed the neck opening squarely under the wind shadow of my helmet. Great gear, if a bit pricey, and if I were a heavier guy...over 220 say, I might find it snug.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese Talos Gore-Tex Jacket The endless expanse of the steppe, the wind that scours the dusty road, lightning flashes on the horizon. Theres still a long way to go before the next bivouac, but your Talos jacket will get you there in comfort, even when the weather turns suddenly rough. Thanks to its modular construction and removable GORE-TEX lining, removable thermal padding, and air vents cut into the steel plates on the shoulders, you will arrive safe and dry. Freedom of movement, the right ergonomics, and the right fit are guaranteed by extensive elasticated fabric areas combined with numerous adjustment possibilities that ensure excellent comfort even after hours and hours in the saddle.

Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves Fits like a glove... Youve heard it a thousand times, so have we. What actually defines how a glove should fit We think the new standard is Icons Pursuit glove. Supple sheepskin leather conforms to your hand. Plastic knuckle armor for protection, but hidden for a refined look. All over perforation for all day comfort. Reinforced goatskin palm to combat those nasty encounters with the asphalt. Try it on for yourself and then decide. This is what a glove was meant to be. Pittards sheepskin chassis for great fit Goatskin leather palm overlay for durability Integrated knuckle armor for protection Secure wrist closure keeps the glove in place Expansion gussets to improve overall flexibility Snap to keep gloves together while not in use

I bought these gloves for summer riding in New England. I wanted something visually simple, well ventilated and without palm pads. I'm happy with these gloves and have worn them on some all day rides.
My fingers are long in proportion to my palm width, so I usually buy large gloves. The sizing chart indicated I should buy medium, which I did. As I feared, the fingers of the glove did not feel long enough, although the snugness through the palm and wrist was good. I soaked the fingers in water before leaving on a long trip and the leather stretched. Now they fit perfectly. Yay for leather!
Yes, I recommend this product.
