I'm 6' 168 lbs 33" waist 34" inseam. Size 52 is fine.
I've read all the reviews posted here on these pants and the consensus is favorable.
Pros:
1. They look and feel great if your primary goal is to look stylish on your ride. And who doesn't want that?
Cons:
1. Contrary to most reviews here they are not bike "gear" in the sense of protection in an off situation. High speed, low speed, any speed: these pants are the equivalent of (or less than) everyday jeans. You will get zero (no) abrasion protection with these. Basically these pants are cosmetic in their intent. But.....you will look cool.
2. Pocket openings are cut small and the razor sharp zippers will give you concerns: the most of which is scratching your smartphone glass unless you insert and remove your phone very carefully.....each and every time.
3. They fit very tight. Don't be afraid to order two sizes above your normal wear. RevZilla is superb on exchanges!
I am still recommending this product because I know that Dainese probably sees something that I have missed.

Anthony states in his review that this boot "may" be a half size larger than your normal fit. I would suggest that you use the comparison chart and order as per advised. The boot fits perfectly. Don't order a smaller fit.
If you are coming from a non racing/bike boot and your usual footwear was a flexible boot/shoe type (as I was) be prepared for a learning experience with new "out of the box" race boots.
They need a break in period! Your first experience will be a bit confusing. Moving your shifting foot from up to down position and also missing the intended gear entirely will upset your previous riding habits. You may not even feel the rear brake when pressing on it with these new boots. It takes some getting used to and I wouldn't go out as usual on an aggressive ride.
Now if racing boots have always been your usual gear....well you don't need to hear this.
This shoe is very cool looking! Not to sure the flouresent strip will look as bright after a few rides. Probably not supposed to!
Love all gear Dainese! Unfortunately RevZilla shows us the "out of stock" notice sooner rather then later on new products.
I am not positive about this but my experience has been that if you see an item here at RevZilla that you want: buy it! No guarantees it will be back.

This product was out of stock for six months on my order. I waited, and when it finally came back online I got a call from the sales rep asking if I still wanted it.
Best non race jacket on the market. I would suggest that if your body shape is not slim to athletic the fit may be a bit constricting.
The quality is superb. The interior removable seasonal liners take a bit of thought to get them back together again.
Yes, I'll agree that a jacket of this level does not have sufficient pockets. And a scarf might help around the collar.
I'm extremely happy with this Scorpion jacket!

These gloves take a bit of breaking in time. Do not wear them on your first aggressive ride and expect that your input to the bike will be receptive or even safe. Not going to happen. All new gear is very iffy on those first aggressive rides.
Break them in and you'll be happy with these shorties. If looks are important: these are your gloves.
Taking them off and putting them on in a hurry? Again, not going to happen.
The knuckles are a bit abrasive but I need to give them a bit more ride time.
I would buy them because I know that my review a year from now would be even more favorable.
