If you're considering upgrading the back armor in your jacket(s) take a look at D3O (Klim) and SAS-Tec (Rev'it). Alpinestars and other brands are developing their own versions, but D30 is making all of it's pieces available--SAS-Tec does not currently. This pad fit into my Dainese Zen jacket without cutting/adjusting. I think either choice would be good, but while the D30 is heavier, it flows more air than the SAS-Tec. The difference between your standard armor and this comfort-wise is surprising. You no longer have to consider where/how to hang your jacket because the back is so inflexible or how to reach across the table when your sleeve pulls taught again your foam/rock-hard standard pad. The D30 pad gets more flexible as it warms against your body. Do yourself the favor. Especially since it's not more cost effective to go with the CE1 materials.
Yes, I recommend this product.

While this glove has a gore-tex membrane, the leather parts that make up the interior grip do take on moisture, and don't dry very quickly (air drying in a temperate house took more than 24hrs). As most guides will tell you, if you want waterproof, bring more than one pair of gloves. I wouldn't put these first on my list for riding in the rain, but the functionality, fit, and look are superb for winter riding. Most of Dainese's products fit a slim, long build well. I generally wear a large in gloves but these run snug compared to other Dainese gloves I own. If you're looking at premium cold weather gloves from Held, Rev'it, etc., seriously consider these. The profile of the cuff is more versatile than those brands expanding over your jacket, or running under the sleeve and snug to your liner. The primaloft is a bit more comfortable than anything Held offered, and similar to Rev'it for 50 dollars less. If I lost these, I'd buy them again.
