Obviously, it's a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for with Alpinestars. As a tall and lanky man at 6' 2", 170-175lbs 32-33 waist, I was very happy with this jacket in XL. It's meant for a bit wider rider, as I had to cinch down the sides a lot, but the arm length is great. The extended length backside it awesome. Previously, I had problems with the back coming up a bit in my old jacket (Alpinestars City Collection), making for a very cold ride on my Monster 1200 (mostly upright riding position).
I usually wear a t-shirt to the office and it's kept me fairly warm in the AM getting down to mid 40's and very rainy now that fall has hit here in Seattle. I can tell if it gets much colder, I'm going to need a warmer shirt on underneath, but so far, so good.
The sleeves have good Velcro adjusters that allow for easy weather/cold proofing and also quick removal.
The only issues I have are:
(1) I really have to make sure the zipper is engaged at the bottom or it will split apart pretty easy, but that's mostly user error as a result of a hasty style of getting my gear on.
(2) The loop that holds the liner to the neck of broke within a month of owning it. It's not a big deal as the liner doesn't really need it to stay in place, but it's kind of a bummer. I'll probably pay to get it fixed because I can't afford to be without my commuting jacking during the winter.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These pants are leaps and bounds better than my old Joe Rocket ones. My old ones had the zippers bind on the flaps and eventually it destroyed them, so I bought these. The zippers are higher quality, the design is better and they zipping is very smooth.
I'm a tall slender build, so the fit is a bit off. The knee armor seems to be just below my knee while walking. Once I'm sitting on the bike, everything seems to be in the right place.
These can get pretty hot on a 70+ degree day, but are acceptable while moving.
Yes, I recommend this product.
