Dainese Brooklyn Gore-Tex Jacket: Rugged w/ a Soft Side

Tony - Content Coordinator

The Dainese Brooklyn Gore-Tex Jacket is kind of like the famous borough itself; rugged and rough from the outside, but internally it has a softer side to offer for those who care to look. Two sides. Complex in nature. Ready for anything and undeterred by a challenge. That is Brooklyn, in both cases.

Dainese Brooklyn Gore-Tex Motorcycle JacketWith an outer shell that has been constructed with a laminated Gore-Tex 3L breathable & waterproof fabric, the Dainese Brooklyn GTX is a motorcycle jacket that is ready take on the elements head-on. In terms of weather protection, there really is nothing better as Gore-Tex is the standard by which all other material waterproofing is currently measured. However, rugged and road-ready isn’t exactly the epitome of comfort. It’s meant to fight off the elements and asphalt after all. Not really the kind of thing that you want to snuggle up to on a beachfront cabana. That’s where the internal Thermore Booster thermal down jacket comes into play. Plush and polished for stand-alone use, this removable liner keeps the inner confines of the Dainese Brooklyn Jacket comfy throughout the duration of the ride, as well as offering a fashionable piece that can just as easily be worn off of the bike entirely. Additional features of the Dainese Brooklyn Jacket include Pro-Armor soft protectors at the shoulders and elbows, ample adjustment throughout, and reflective inserts that improve visibility in the saddle.

For a longer-cut and coverage, multi-function jacket built to handle the elements, Dainese has put together a top-contender with the new Brooklyn GTX. It does a lot, for riders who are up to the challenge.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Dainese D-Cyclone Gore-Tex Jacket: Warm & Dry

Tony - Content Coordinator

Being warm when all around you are cold, and being dry when all around you are wet. Those are two of the greatest feelings in life. It’s fact. In the battle of humankind vs. Mother Nature, the latter has always won out. Push come to shove, it always will. However, like knights of the motorcycle round table tasked with defending the realm of all things two-wheels against the outward forces of the world, Dainese is working hard to provide the best gear to keep humans in the game a bit longer. To that end, new for 2016, the Dainese D-Cyclone Gore-Tex Jacket is ready to rumble.

Dainese D-Cyclone Gore-Tex Motorcycle JacketComing from the path originally charted by the Dainese Carver Jacket, the new D-Cyclone GTX stands as a top-of-the-line addition to Dainese’s all world, 3-season sport-touring lineup. New additions to the Dainese D-Cyclone Gore-Tex can be seen in the way that the GTX membrane has been laminated to the outer shell with Gore-Tex 2L SPL 600XK fabric. Basically, it is one of the most ardently-defended jackets out there when it comes to waterproofing. Like, the kind of defenses that not even Ethan Hunt could finagle through. When you put on the D-Cyclone, you keep out water. Simple as that. Additional improvements to the Dainese D-Cyclone Jacket can be found in the inclusion of leather-capped shoulders, added forearm adjustment, and improved mobility through the inclusion of ergonomically-placed stretch materials. Also, it comes with a Dainese Wave G2 Back Protector included. So, yeah… there is that too!

In the end, the Dainese D-Cyclone Gore-Tex Jacket is built to provide cool - cold weather riders with one of the very best choices in the world for their needs. Coming in at a substantial investment price-point, it really is going to be geared for the most ardent of motorcyclists who are intent on riding deeper into the winter months. With a lack of direct venting, the seasonality of the D-Cyclone will taper off towards the warmer months, so that is also going to be important to keep in mind. However, if staying warm and dry through the cooler and wetter months of the year is high on your priority list, Dainese has provided a truly substantial tool for your rebellion against the hardships of Mother Nature.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Dainese Bryan Leather Jacket: It's About Time

After years of looking fly and fresh with a mullet for the ages and a beard that is the envy of Zeus himself, Dainese has taken notice of our very own Hi-Viz Brian and channeled his oh-so-visible swag into the all-new Bryan Jacket. Well, spelling of Bryan aside that is. Must be an Italian to English translation thing. Rugged, durable, and epic in both its attitude and aggressive go-getter ethos, if HVB was a leather jacket, the Dainese Bryan is pretty much what he would be.

Dainese Bryan Leather Motorcycle JacketIntricately crafted by the masters of Italian moto design, the Dainese Bryan Jacket makes its mark as a premium, luxurious, and piercingly fashionable addition to the world of cafe racer motorcycle jackets. On the bike or off, the full-grain cowhide leather and tapered cut of the Bryan allows for it to be equally as proficient on the bike as it is at home walking through the city streets. For when the kickstand is up and the throttle is calling, the Bryan features a CE - Cat. II certification for safety, removable composite protectors, and the ability to take either a G1 or G2 Dainese back protector that is sold separately. At the same time, comfort features like the removable thermal liner and waist adjustments allow the jacket to extend its operational range into cooler days, as well as better accommodate various body types. And as for when the kickstand is down, well, the clean, classic, and minimally-branded exterior turns just as many heads as it does when it zooms by at full speed.

Dainese Bryan Leather Jacket Review:


So, maybe the Bryan leather jacket isn’t the direct namesake of our own Hi-Viz Brian. Even so, however, there is no denying that the two share a very similar blueprint; strong, moto-driven, stylish, and always ready for the camera!

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Dainese Torque D1 Gore-Tex Boots: Popular with Purpose

Tony - Content Coordinator

Being popular is a mixed bag. From pre-school, to high-school, music to movies, technology to haircuts, a lot of things have buzz. While it is often perplexing why some things are popular and others are not, one thing that can be counted on is that things that suck will, in time, show their true colors. It’s a fleeting thing for many, as their popularity is based on flash, with no substance to back it up. Sustained popularity, however, as can be referenced by the Dainese Torque series of motorcycle boots, is only earned through continually providing value that can be counted on.

With the new Dainese Torque D1 Gore-Tex Boots, the lineup of hugely successful motorcycle boots takes a new step forward into all-weather functionality. In adding the world-class waterproofing of the Gore-Tex membrane, the Torque D1 Out GTX Boots have upped their inclimate weather game to industry-leading standards. As with all boots in the D1 Torque Out lineup, the new Gore-Tex option has been designed to stand firmly at the intersection of comfort, protection, and that signature Italian moto-sexy design. From the flexible joint construction that offers substantial support without making riders’ ankles feel like The Tin Man pre-oilcan, to the high-grip TPU inserts, D-stone outer shell construction, magnesium inserts on the outer side of the heel, and an air canalization system for increased comfort, the Dainese Torque D-1 Out Gore-Tex Boots propel the industry-leading lineup forward into 2016.

Dainese Torque D1 Gore-Tex Boots Review:


Quick popularity is built on shaky ground. It rarely lasts. However, that which has been earned through years of effort, focus, and continual improvement, such as has been shown by the Dainese Torque D1 assortment of boots, can be counted on to deliver time and time again.

Dainese Stripes Textile Jacket: Cool Things Rock Stripes

Tony - Content Coordinator

Tigers. Race cars. Old school baseball uniforms. All of these have stripes. All of these are very cool. Coincidence? Well, yeah, it probably is. But it takes nothing away from the overarching point. Stripes are cool, classy, and timeless as they simultaneously exude sophistication, power, and swag. It should be no surprise then that the new Dainese Stripe Textile Jacket does as all of those things as well.

Dainese Stripes Tex Motorcycle JacketAs an entry-level, 2-season motorcycle jacket, the Dainese Stripes Textile Jacket brings a dash of vintage aesthetic and swagger to contemporary moto, and it does so at a relatively moderate price point for the Dainese brand. Constructed with a Quickdry textile exterior, the Dainese Stripes Jacket has been augmented with sueded accents that give it an added visual complexity all its own. Within, the Stripes textile jacket is backed by removable composite protectors at the shoulders and elbows, as well as pockets that accept additional back back armor that is sold separately. Additional features include reflective inserts, wrist, neck, and waist adjustment, and a jacket-to-trousers connection loop for seamless integration with a pair of riding pants.

Dainese Stripes Textile Jacket Review:


The Dainese Strip Tex Jacket keeps things simple for riders who want to rock a relaxed jacket off of the bike just as much as they want to wear a moto-specific option on it. In taking from a vintage aesthetic that is always in style, Dainese has crafted a textile jacket that will retain it’s fashion sense well into the future.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
