Overall very happy with this jacket, and it's become my staple jacket for warm weather riding.
It's a jacket that offers the protection of leather with ventilation. Well constructed and stylish as well. The leather is not as thick as some of my other gear, but I think this is by design to allow for the warmer weather riding it is designed for. The perforation works well, albeit not as well as my Dainese mesh jacket), but again it is a perforated leather jacket not a full mesh jacket.
It is a more generous cut than some of the other Dainese jackets. Being 5'7", 205lb, the 52 was tight, & the 54 allows me to get a thin soft-shell jacket underneath for when it cools down.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Positives: comfortable when wearing, flows air, well constructed, typical high quality from Dainese, adequate protection (not that I have come off with them, but appear so)
Negatives: the coccyx hard plate. While a useful feature, unless you are on a sports bike where you really lean forwards, you end up sitting on this plate (I do on my cruiser) making the ride somewhat uncomfortable. Also the thigh pads will make your thighs about 3/8" wider on each side, so depending on how tight your pants are, as to whether these will fit comfortably underneath.
Yes, I recommend this product.
