who likes dainese gear?

greetings to all,
i am a soon to be owner of a brutale 1078RR. i am upgrading all my gear to go with this beautiful machine, and i want to know what people think of dainese.
i have already ordered the full metal racer gloves, and am lusting for the tattoo ykz jacket.
just want to get a few opinions before i make the very expensive plunge for that gorgeous jacket.
how does the sizing run? anybody crashed while wearing dainese?
how did your gear fare in the crash?
thanks for your help.

They make great gear. The Full Metal Racer gloves are the best combo of safty and comfort out there, period. The boots are great as well, as they are comfortable and very simple. The suits and jackets run slim, so you'll deff want to try them on at a store prior to buying online. If you're not saving much, then I'd recomend buying in a store, as oposed to online, as you never really know the fit until you've worn them on your bike and walked around wearing the gear for a day or two.

Top notch, but so far out of my price range.

I ordered all dainese gear from motowheels. Best price you can get anywhere in the US. Make sure you register first and then log in with your username and password. You will get an instant discount on everything you order. Fo e.g i got my jack for 669 instead of 799. Pretty good. The quality is amazing. It's not cheap but worth every penny and gear is the last thing i compromise on.

oh yeah and SIDI makes the best boots

i'm surprised Dainese doesn't make any gloves out of kangaroo. I'd say Helds are better than Dainese for gloves. Helds comes in more sizes too.

The high end gear are worth the extra $$$ as they are made in Italy. Personally I would do a close check on the labels and if they are made in China or India I'll give them a miss.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!
