Fitment & styling are really nice. Fits true-to-size. I'm 5'6" 147lbs, athletic build, and I wear a size 38 race suit. Size Small fits me perfectly. It wicks sweat & flows air nicely, and doesn't get stinky- even after a hot, summer ride. It's easy to wash (cold cycle in washer), and it's easy to get in & out of, once you learn how to peel it off your shoulders, which is key. My only dislike is that the little black pattern pieces on the upper torso flake off over time- esp if you wear a back & chest protector. Those black pieces are purely cosmetic, but it does makes a flaky mess. I ended up spending 30 min peeling them all off to get it over with.

Spidi Carbo-3 Gloves One of the most advanced Spidi Racing gloves the first one to feature both the Carbon Knuckle shield with raised profiles and the triple fastening system. The carbon knuckle padding with raised profiles represents a development for Spidi gloves as it improves shock absorbing factor, helps a safe slide in case of crash, limiting the risk of potentially dangerous leverages against the asphalt, and improves aerodynamics. Features Full grain cowhide Primaloft wadding Triple fastening Side wrist stretches Keramide padding Triple layers over side of small finger Grip palm

Great styling, comfortable fit, and true to size. The only issue that I had was that 2 of my left knuckles got scraped up a bit from two consecutive days of break-in wear (about 4 hours riding total). I suspect this should go away once they are fully broken in. Protection-wise, I think Spidi could've added a little more wrist padding/ armor and maybe a little more pinky protection. At $200, these are a very respectable pair of great looking & comfortable race gauntlet gloves. But, my $250 Knox Handroids were much easier to break in and offer far much better hand protection. Still I like them both and will wear both.

I purchased an additional D30 set, and stitched a custom pouch to insert one piece into my Icon Stryker shorts for tailbone protection. And, I wear this as additional lower-body protection under my leather race suit. I like the D30 armor, because it's very low-profile and CE-certified. The flip side is that it is slightly heavier than foam armor, and the surface coverage area is smaller. It's primary function, however, is target-area impact protection (hips, tailbone).
D30 is a soft, gel-like, CE-certified armor that is now being used as OEM in several manufacturers' riding gear- ie, ICON, KLIM etc. (http://www.d3o.com/category/motorcycle/)
I think the Knox replacement armor is, overall, probably superior- ie lighter, larger coverage. But, the problem with Knox armor is that it is extremely bulky and therefore not always practical in some applications- such as wearing underneath race suits. In those instances, I like the D30 for it's low profile and the CE certification.
Hopefully, I will never need to know how well it works. But, until then, it's part of my gear. ^_^
Yes, I recommend this product.

This Knox pad is a standard, drop-in CE back protector for jackets/ suits. And, I purchased it to replace the foam padding inside a custom Pilot EVO jacket I ordered, which has a 15"x12" pocket.
Last year I bought a nearly identical Fieldsheer pad of comparable quality, size, and identical CE rating for $10 + S&H for my other riding jacket. But, Fieldsheer products are getting harder to find these days, as I've heard their company is slowly phasing out the Fieldsheer label & focusing more on its Cortech brand. And, this Knox pad seems like the closest, comparable product- though slightly more expensive.
Looking at them side-by-side, the Knox pad is slightly better quality than the Fieldsheer pad. It's softer and has a more "finished & glossy" look. But, they are pretty much the same type of product- ie identical shape, nearly identical texture, and identical CE rating. Is the Knox one really $20 better? Not entirely sure...
But, for jackets that don't come with a CE back pad, $30 + S&H is still a very respectable price for a replacement option. And, I would highly recommend replacing the foam pad with something like this.
Overall, Knox has a solid reputation and makes some really great stuff. (Their products tend to be slightly bulky though.) I also own a pair of the Knox HandRoid exoskeleton gloves, and they are simply awesome.
It's great to see Revzilla offering more & more Knox products in their online store...
Yes, I recommend this product.
