Had this jacket for over a year now. I've worn it on some fairly rough conditions and it hasn't lived up to my expectations.
The first was a trip from Toronto to NYC in mid October. During the day the jacket handled well and at times might have even been too warm. In the evenings it dropped to lower than 5ºC (40ºF) and the flaws became apparent. The wrists and neck let in too much air for a cold weather jacket. I had short cuff gloves at the time and was freezing. I had to stop and double my under layers to compensate for all the air coming in through the neck and wrists. I've since gotten full cuff gloves but even an elasticated cotton wrist and collar would have went a long way.
The second instance was during heavy downpour. The forecast called for light rain but that was not the case as I hit the highway. It rained heavily for several minutes at a time and when I reached my destination I was soaked. The wrist, neck and waist made sense, but I was soaked through the jacket itself. I tested this out by taking the jacket out for a walk on a bit of a rainy day without the bike and the water had in fact gone through again.
Not sure what D-Dry means to Dianese but it sure doesn't mean what I thought it did.
This jacket is a good understated option for city riders, but don't get it for cold or wet weather riding. I'll be selling mine.
I'm looking into the Aether Skyline as a proper waterproof, understated city option.
No, I do not recommend this product.
