I'm a size 40, so I can't say too much about the sizing, but I have gone through motorcyclegear.com or revzilla a lot. Revzilla is great for learning about specific products, and motorcycle gear has great deals on closeouts.

If you want discounted nice gear - try this place "motostrom . it" (italian site - I don't have enough posts yet so i can't post URLs)


Don't look at the posted prices, when you go to check out, if your shipping address is in the US they remove the EU VAT and the price drops about 30%. I saved a couple hundred dollars on a Dainese jacket I was going to order from Revzilla this way.

I ended up with my Dainese jacket by finding lines that discontinued, and then searching ebay for those lines a year or two later.

Essentially, find the models that are no longer sold and have been replaced by "newer and better". Doing this, I ended up with a jacket that one year prior was $600, but I got for $300. Been using it for like 6 years now every day.

I ordered a brand new Dainese Air Frame jacket from MotardInn for $150. That being said, they cancelled the order about a week later saying they were out of stock. Annoying, but at least I got my money back.

A few days ago, I ordered a Dainese D1 Pelle for $376 on eBay from a seller in the Netherlands. This jacket retails for $599. I don't know if it's the exchange rate or what, but they have a lot of positive reviews so I gave it a shot.

I say use Revzilla for your research since they have excellent video reviews on most of their products, then check eBay or Craigslist for an excellent example.

Try not to skimp on protection. Good protection is way cheaper than hospital bills (is what I tell my wife when she sees me on RevZilla).
