Overall I'm very happy with my new jacket and pants. The Aqua Tour 2.0 jacket is very comfortable and versatile for cool weather. I'm using it without the liner in 50-60 degree temperatures over a shirt and electric vest. I got an XL. I'm 5'10", have 44" chest, 36" waist and the jacket is just a bit large, but I doubt I'd want to go smaller. The sleeves are a bit longer than I'd prefer, too. The Mercury 2.0 pants in XL are a very good fit over jeans, but probably an inch or two longer than I'd prefer. I have 31" inseam. I'm wearing them without the liner, too. Quite comfortable at 50 deg, but above 70 they are getting too warm to be over jeans. I like the pockets and zippers. My bike has a full fairing (Kawasaki Concours) so I get pretty good wind protection from that. I doubt I'll use this jacket/pants combo once hot weather sets in, but for the cooler rides it is a good choice. Not yet tested in rain.
