I just bought this jacket right before a big trip. And I am very happy I did. The jacket is soft, comfortable, versatile, and looks great.
Compared to my Fieldsheer jacket the leather is extremely soft and the protection feels less bulky. The anthracite color gives it a bit of a two tone finish which is barely visible and looks very nice.
Things I really love about it:
* The air vents on the arms are amazing - I didn't expect them to work this great but they really do move lots of air and are very easy to operate while riding.
* The vest liner is very soft and works great. I was actually surprised how well it works for both colder weather and how well it breathes in warmer weather.
* This is silly, but... The pocket zippers are very easy to spot. I am always paranoid that I left my pockets open when I start riding and I can just glance in the mirror and confirm they are zipped up.
One nit I have with this jacket is the collar, I think it's designed for people with extra thin necks or maybe mine's too fat. But once you snap it in, it's actually very comfortable.
I am 5'7" 155lb and I ordered a size 50 - fits well with and without the liners.

REV'IT! Gear 2 Leather Pants Where there's an Ignition 2 jacket, you're likely to see it being worn with the equally comfortable and stylish REV'IT Gear 2 trousers. This bootcut pair of trousers features a zipped-in and easily detachable REV'IT! hydratex 3L membrane on both top and bottom, to keep you dry when you need it. Quickly zip it out, and you've got free airflow for ventilation during those hot summer rides. The Gear 2 trousers offer the protection of leather with the versatility of top-level, waterproof textile trousers. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell Monaco Performance cowhide, Dynax mesh, PWRshell 500D stretch, PWRwax 500D, suede leather Waterproofing detachable hydratex 3L (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex 3L (7000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 55 leather, 44 polyamide, 1 elastane lining 100 polyester membrane 100 polyurethane (tricot 100 polyamide) Protection ProLife CE protection at knees, EVA foam at hips, safety stitching Visibility reflection at calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features stretch lips at back and knees, short and long connection zipper, adjustable protector pockets, calf zippers Pockets slit pockets

Bought these right before my annual motorcycle trip together with the Ignition 2 jacket. The trip was about 1000 miles and the weather was 60-80F. The pants are in general very comfortable and feel like they would provide great protection.
My only comments to Rev'it are:
1. They seem to bunch up a bit on the sides after a while of riding and poke into your hips. I think suspends might work to fix this problem (though not particular stylish#
2. The ventilation could be a bit better. I ended unzipping the pockets - that greatly improves the air circulation
I haven't tried the rain liner.
I usually wear 30-31x30-31 jeans and the 48 size pants fit just right. The knee pad adjustment are a bit tricky to adjust the first time but once you figure it out it's not hard #and you only have to do it once-twice till you get it right) and the fit can really be customized.

Dunlop Sportmax Q2 Front Tire The new Q2 incorporates race-tested advancements that add up to a vastly superior tire equally at home on the street or the track. Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) technology in the rear tire intuitively allows the rider greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides amazingly linear steering no matter what shape, speed or camber the corner, and at all lean angles Radical new profile puts down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles while also allowing greater lean angles and higher corner speeds to provide substantially better grip and handling Dunlops advanced Multi-Tread technology combines the benefits of a tough, long-wearing center compound for increased mileage with a special lateral-grip compound on each shoulder for superior cornering traction New carcass construction in both the front and rear tires includes newly designed continuous hex beads that are both lighter and stronger to enhance steering response in the front tire and increase cornering stability in both tires Q2 rear tire features a newly developed, stiffer version of Dunlops Jointless Band (JLB) construction that utilizes a continuously wound aramid belt for reduced carcass distortion, plus stiffer overall construction to meet high-performance demands and provide a more consistent contact patch Dunlop Tire Tips Guide (pdf)

Replaced my old Dunlop Sportmax on my CBR600 and it's a great improvement.
I've only had them on for a few weeks (and riding street only# so no opinion on tread life, but otherwise they feel great. Warm up fast and are very sticky.
Also, was positively surprised that this tire showed up next day #was shipped from OR), thanks Revzilla!!!
Just one word of advice: if you change the tire yourself make sure you have the proper tools - fronts are much more difficult than the rear tires...
