Dainese Greyhound Leather Jacket Review

One of the finest leathers in the Dainese Naked Collection (that is, jackets with minimal branding and external hard parts), the Dainese Greyhound Leather Jacket is one of the softest protective leather jackets we've ever seen. Utilizing a unique tanning process that Dainese refers to as the brilliant luster, the Greyhound has a certain sheen and softness to it that is completely one-of-a-kind. If you're the rider who doesn't want to look like a storm trooper when you get off the bike, and you're looking for a jacket that will look as good off the bike as it will perform on the bike, the Greyhound should definitely fall into consideration.

Check out our Dainese Greyhound Leather Jacket Review:



As mentioned, the shell of the Greyhound is a premium cowhide leather that utilizes Dainese's proprietary "brilliant luster" tanning process. There are strategic perforation panels at the inner arm to flow air through areas that are least prone to impact. For protection, there is CE rated armor in the shoulders and elbows and a pocket in the back if you want to upgrade to the Dainese Wave G Back Protector for additional armor. If you want to go completely casual with this jacket for a night out, the shoulder and elbow armor is completely removable. In addition to the NanoFeel sanitized mesh lining of this jacket, there is a removable full-sleeved thermal liner that is absolutely the top of the Dainese food chain as far as softness and comfort is concerned.

Beyond the obvious features that jump right out when you look at this jacket, the Greyhound has subtle details like the embossed Dainese logo at the upper back and the titanium demon logos at the upper arms. The chest pocket, that is found in addition to the handwarmer pockets, adds to the classic and stylish vibe of this jacket. There is a jacket-pants connection zipper and waist adjustability helps to cinch this jacket down. Ultimately, this jacket is a fashion-first piece that will also meet Dainese's standards of protection and safety on the bike. This is a great choice for the naked bike and Euro bike crowd.
