Dainese has taken one of their best selling and most popular leather jackets, the Dainese Racing Leather Jacket, and made a textile version. What does this mean? You can now get a jacket with the same comfort, cut, colors, and style as the Racing leather but at a much more affordable price and lighter weight. Dainese designed this jacket to the riders looking for a lightweight technical and sport-inspired textile jacket at an affordable price. The Dainese Racing Textile Jacket is certain to be a hit with the crowd of sport and sport-touring riders who do not need all the benefits of a leather but still want to get a great value.
Check out our Dainese Racing Textile Jacket Review:
Most of the outer shell of the jacket is constructed using a strong and abrasion resistant Duratex fabric. There's reflective piping running across the biceps to help improve visibility when riding at night and more reflective material on the back of the jacket along the lower back. The back also has the really cool Dainese Demon logo printed largely from shoulder to shoulder. There's an external chest pocket up on the left side of the pocket and two standard pockets down towards the waist. The inside of the jacket is one inner-pocket and a removable full sleeve thermal liner to help keep you warm during the colder days of riding. The Racing textile jacket comes with CE approved shoulder and elbow protectors while a pocket in the back of the jacket allows for an upgrade to the Dainese Wave G back protector.
This is a jacket that you will mostly be able to get 2 seasons out of. There's not a ton of ventilation on this jacket to take it to those hot summer days where the temperature goes above 90 degrees and there's not really enough coverage on this jacket to protect the rider from the wind and cold when the temperature goes below the 40 degree mark. This jacket is really built as a solid Spring and Fall jacket.
A great choice for the Spring and Fall sport and street rider, the Dainese Racing Textile Jacket is sure meet plenty of riders' needs this riding season.
