Sizing - Slightly smaller than my other Dainese glove. I wear a size M in the Dainese Steel Core Carbon (which is a tad too big on me) and a size M in the Scout fits me perfectly. I have skinny hands so I guess the insulation fills in some of that space. For reference, I also wear a size L in Alphinestar gloves.
Comfort - Very comfortable. All the insulation does make it a bit hard to use the clutch/brake lever.
Performance - Keeps my hand warm down to 50 degrees. Tried wearing them in 40 degrees and my hands was definitely got cold and numb. I also want to mention that the gloves are lined with Primaloft which is a man-made equivalent of of goose down feathers. Anyone that are into winter outdoor activities knows that Primaloft is some good stuff. I don't know why Revzilla didn't advertise that in their product description. Initial I thought Primaloft only came with the higher end Jericho gloves.

I wanted a pair of knee/shin guards to wear underneath jeans. For reference, I'm a pretty skinny guy. I'm 5'11, 150lbs. The guards are nice and narrow and fit my skinny legs perfectly.
I wear American Eagle low rise boot cut jeans. They are not baggy jeans but they are not super tight either. The V Guards fit nicely underneath them. You can't really notice that I'm wearing them unless if you really pay attention. Just get jeans that are 2" longer than normal because your pant leg will ride up when you are on your bike, especially w/ the V Guards on.
The V Guards are easy and quick to put on and take off. It takes me less than 30 seconds to put them on or take the off (with jeans already on). Air flow is great. There are holes in the knee area which allow air to flow through. The bubble liner creates an air pocket between your skin and the guard allowing air to flow. The extra strap and hinged protection area above the knee give you good articulation and makes the guards very comfortable to walk in.
Overall great product for the price. Will recommend it for anyone with skinny legs.

I can't review the protection/safety aspect of the back protector as I've never crashed in it. All I know is that it meets the CE Level 2 standard. It would be nice if Dainese release the exact amount of Force (in kg) that it transfer.
What I can do is review it's comfort. 1st off, it doesn't fit all Dainese Jackets! I have a Air 2 and a Delmar. It fits my Air 2 but not my Delmar. That was disappointing. Now I have to get a separate one for my Delmar. Next, this protector is very stiff. Its a one piece construction. Out of the box, the thing is flat and stiff. It doesn't conform to your back when you are hunched over your bike. What I did was to bend the back protector by hand to give it a more curved shaped. It does hold the curve form. After that, it was much more comfortable. I would recommend spending the extra money and getting the Wave G or Shield Air G.

I love these boots. These are my 3rd pair of riding boots and by far my favorite. I'm a pretty skinny guy, 5'11", 150lbs. I have very narrow feet and these boots fit great. A tried a few other brands and my ankle are usually swimming in them causing heel lift inside the boot. With the quick tightening system, my foot is nice and snug inside the boot.
Did I mention these boots are super comfortable on and off the bike? I can wear them all day long. I haven't walked in them for longer than a few hours but I'm sure I can go all day if I had to.
I'm a size US9.5/10 and the EU42 fits me perfectly with just a little extra room for the toes. I also wear a size 42 in Aldo shoes for comparison.
The protection on these boots are top notch. These are the few boots out there that also has protection on the inside of the ankle.
The air flow on these boots are decent. Air flows through the fabric on the front of the boot. You can feel air flowing through the tongue of the boot. You can feel Dainese's 3D bubble technology at work here.
These boots look great with jeans. They don't look like motorcycle boots at all. They look more like a pair of high tops basketball shoe. I got the black/white color combo. I highly recommend this boot to people out there with narrow feet!
