I expected more for the price. I like the way I look in it and it feels pretty comfortable.

On its own merit in style alone this product is appealing and coupled it with its virtues in design,fabrication and functionality this product is a great buy. High quality great fit and a great level of protection that was anticipated yet surprising makes this not only a great buy but a must have article to add to you riding apparell.. i was also pleased with the price. This was my first purchase from RevZilla (and wont be my last) and i was pleased to see good prices and the shipping time was phenominal..the whole process was painless and hassle free

Awesome cold weather base layer.
I ride year round in Florida. I wear a Dainese EVO leather jacket and if the liner is in, it becomes way too warm for our 50 degree "cold days".. This shirt is the solution. It fits snug but not restricting. Not under armour style if spandex. This shirt is very soft and blocks the wind. I wore it to London 2 days after I got it as a under shirt. I was able to get away with this and a light jacket in 30 degree windy weather. It's a bit pricey but all my gear is Dainese so the sticker shock has worn off. The material seems like it will snag on Velcro so be careful with your gloves. So far I love this shirt. It also has different zones that assist in wicking away sweat, like on shoulders and between shoulder blades.

nice and cozy
used this with the long johns on a recent highway + trail ride in the low 40's and was kept nice and toasty the whole way. it's very comfortable, so you don't notice you're wearing it, which is often the case with some warm layers.
definitely a little expensive, but it does the job it promises to do.

Very comfortable base layer
I usually find that Dainese requires you to order 1 size smaller. This warm shirt however is true to size. In terms of comfort, I don't find any problems wearing it. Usually I itch when wearing certain fabrics however, I find this shirt fits you like a glove.
In terms of protection and air flow....I view this as protection from the cold elements, in mild winters you can use this instead of putting a thermal liner on your jacket which can come very handy. Overall, it's a great jacket and I would recommend anybody who is an all year rider to get it.

Warm and Comfortable
Garment is very sheer and is exceptionally comfortable. I found my UnderArmour gear to be very comfortable and this garment is even better than that for the motorcycle application.
It keeps the core very warm without getting ridiculously hot when the ambient temperature rises. When used with open vents or perforation on a jacket, it lets air sufficient to cooling flow through. In this way, it is not a wind-stopping garment and isn't supposed to be.
It is inclined to pilling (without touching any hook-and-loop, which would probably be that much more pronounced). Just the normal friction of the piece under a race jacket will cause some pilling; in fact, there's a poorly translated disclaimer to this extent included with the garment.
I notice that the branding (the Dainese logo) is a bit amateurish; that's usually not the case with Dainese gear because the company is extremely sensitive to brand perception.
All in all, this is like most Dainese gear. It is high quality, high performance, and high price.
