I brought these gloves to fit in to my size 56 (Euro) Alpinestars GP-R Jacket. The closure cuff fits well into my jacket's sleeve and is able to zip up and close over it without difficulty.
Let me start by saying that I love these gloves and I brought them to be my everyday pair to be use in conjunction with the Rev'it Jeves that I plan to buy during summer. So far I've had these gloves in 34 degree weather and they keep my hands considerably warm for the conditions.
Before purchasing these gloves, I was inbetween pairs of Rev'it: Monster, Fly, and H20 and Held: Short Racing Gloves. These gloves felt the best to me after trying on various gloves and sitting on my bike and the fabric around the palm of the glove is very comfortable when maneuvering the controls.
I brought these gloves in an XXL to avoid my hands going to sleep. I am normally between sizes with XL and XXL. Once I jump on the bike though the extra room that I normally have within the fingertips (just walking around) disappears and the gloves fit snug to my fingers. I also have wide wrists so initially fitting into the XL felt like there would have been some circulation loss.
Overall they breathe OK. Normally I put my hand down by my side when riding on the highway with them If I need to pass air into the glove as there are no perforations in between the fingers, only on the back and around the carbon fiber.
Overall, I brought this glove as an street/aggressive riding glove so that if I went down, I would be protected. I feel very protected wearing this glove.

This is a great jacket especially on a budget. The jacket fits a little larger in the stomach region so keep this in mind if your conderned about ordering a larger size because of a muscular build or your wanting to wear layers beneath it. This problem is a bit more pronounced once the liner is taken off, but overall the fit is very good and very comfortable in various riding positions.
The jacket defiantly breathes enough when you at the light and has alot of openings for air to flow and exit. I would recommend looking into upgrading the back protector and this compartment looks like it would accompany a variety of different protectors.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I brought this helm for the MSF course and overall loved the helm. I cant really comment on the amount of protection it offers because I didn't wreck the bike or helm, but comparing this helm to others in its class, along with the snell and DOT ratings were a big contributors to me ending up with this helm. I opted for the silver helm, which has some sparkles but is still manly enough.
Yes, I recommend this product.
