Dainese Shotgun Jacket There is not a more comfortable summer jacket on the market. Pleasurable riding even in the hottest months of the year is the concept behind the new Shotgun Tex jacket that ensures comfortable aeration with numerous openings. Construction in stretch Mugello fabric guarantees a constantly tight and perfect fit while also preventing floating during the ride. The liner provided with silver ion treatment ensures elevated and long-lasting hygiene. Composite protectors on the shoulders and elbows, the pocket for the G-type back protector, and the jacket-pants fastening zipper complete the technical profile of this technical jacket with outstanding performance. Shock Protection Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard. Abrasion And Tear Resistance Mugello fabric. Boomerang mesh inserts. Nylon mesh inserts. Comfort Adjustment strap on neck. Wrist adjustment. Waist adjustment. Temperature Regulation External fabric with water-resistance treatment. Sanitized lining. Other Features Pocket for Wave G1 / G2 Reflective inserts. 2 outer pockets.

Pro: This jacket is exceptionally nice looking. I love the styling and the red color scheme. The mesh flows air really well, so when I was out in the 80 degree weather a few minutes ago, I felt like I was wearing a long-sleeve t-shirt. The built-in protection is great and stays put when you don/doff the jacket, which did not happen when I tried on the Air Flux at a local shop. Fitment was great and true to the sizing on the chart; I am 5'9'", 180 lbs, and athletic, so I normally wear a 40-42R (depending on the cut) business suit and I bought a 52. This jacket fits great.
Con: The sleeves are a bit long for my height, even in the attack position on my bike, but I would rather them be longer rather than shorter. The collar, as you can see in the video, is also a bit large, so it looks somewhat goofy. If you cinch it in with the snap, it looks better, but I prefer the collar on my A* perf leather, which fits much tighter and looks sharper. There is no included back protector, so upgrading to the Dainese protector is a must, but an extra expense. Also, with the back protector installed, it does not vent as well out the back, but I would prefer to trade less air flow for a functional spine in the event of a crash. On balance, the cons are really minor. Buy this jacket and do not be disappointed.
RevZilla Customer Service: RevZilla has absolutely incredible customer service. I traded emails with Todd T for about two weeks as I deliberated between a ton of summer-weight mesh/textile jackets, which ultimately came down to the Dainese Shotgun and the Air Flux (what he personally rides and endorsed strongly). We discussed all the features, pricing, protection, etc ad nauseum. In fact, I think we sent emails back and forth twice a day for a week. Anyway, I eventually settled on the Shotgun for the increased protection over the Air Flux and the Shotgun's styling, albeit trading the Air Flux's lighter weight and cheaper price. I placed the order on Wednesday afternoon after work (circa 5 PM) and was thrilled to see my order was out for delivery on Thursday morning at 6 AM. I am not sure how they were able to get my order turned around and shipped from Philly to DC in less than 13 hours, but they did. In short, the customer service, speed of shipping, and informational videos/reviews will keep me coming back to RevZilla for future purchases. Definitely buy with confidence.
Yes, I recommend this product.
