Let's use revzillas system as a stencil for this review...
Bang for the buck:
This is rough. This is a $700 jacket. If you know anything about gear you'll know there are handfuls of other jackets that will protect just as well and feel just as comfortable for 1, 2... Maybe even $300 less. But on the other hand you pay for what you get, and this is one of the nicest jackets (motorcycle or not) that I've ever tried on.
Style:
This is a 5 star category for me, and I know this is mostly based on opinion, but I will say everyone who's seen me in this jacket or even seen a picture of this jacket is blown away by how cool it looks. My buddy saw it the other day and said... "Wow, that is the type jacket you can give to your son one day!".
Comfort:
This is probably the most comfortable leather motorcycle jacket I've ever worn, but I have to admit I'm relatively new to riding. With that said, the leather is totally premium an the jacket will not need too much of a break in period.
Air Flow:
Ok so I have a mixed review about the airflow of this guy. It has two vented horizontal zippers on the chest, and the material inside the bicep and forearm is some type breathable non leather mAterial. So the jacket stays pretty cool even on a hot day, however without vents on the back, when I'm cruising over 65 upright, this jacket tends to catch a lot of air and from time to time has blown up a little like a ballon. If it happened all the time it would really bother me but for some reason it doesn't. Anyway, it is the only design flaw I see in this jacket.
Features:
Are pretty minimal, but there is a removable liner, ce rated shoulder and elbow armor and a place for a back protector. I mentioned the vents. Otherwise everything else is pretty standard and as expected for a premium jacket like this. Good job!
Fit;
I will say the fit is interesting. I'm 6'1" and about 185lbs. I have a bit of a v shaped body so the shoulders and chest fit me perfectly but the waist is a little looser than I'd like. I could probably wear a 52 or even 50 if we're going by waist size only. What's interesting is that I wear a size 54 in my dainese Avro jacket, and it fits me like a glove! It's tight, and short and really wraps my body (kind of the way motorcycle jacket should IMO) anyway, if you're looking for that real racing, fitted tightness in the rtwin you might want to go down a size. Oh and the sleeves could be an inch longer for my liking.
Overall:
This is an amazing jacket and one of the nicest I've ever seen or worn. The only two issues I have are the price and the airflow situation (which is really not that big a deal) otherwise
If you have the money and style and quality are important to you, you can't go wrong.
Please excuse typos, review written on my mobile phone.

Dainese Avro Textile Jacket Focus Self-assertion and sports passion come together in this jacket designed with an eye to the new Dainese suits and dedicated to riders in search of lightweight, technical gear with a close eye on price as well. Safety is guaranteed by homologated composite protectors, a pocket for the type-G back protector, and reflective inserts. The ergonomic cut, elasticated inserts, side, collar, and cuff adjustment possibilities, and the jacket-pants fastening zip on the Dainese Avro Textile all permit the widest range of fit and freedom of movement combined with a removable thermal lining and ventilation zips to offer remarkable riding comfort.

To be honest I bought this jacket because I spent so much money on my bike, registration, helmet, etc. that I wanted 1 jacket that will work in the spring, summer, fall and maybe early winter!
I think it's capable of that. It definitely gets hot wearing this jacket in 90 degree weather, but I would say anything below, and when the sun goes down it becomes quite comfortable.
The fit and finish is right on par for dainese. The attention to details is very very nice! I think I made the right choice given my financial limitations.
Eventually I will buy a nice leather jacket and probably an extremely light weight jacket as well. For now I will have to stretch out the Avro out as long as possible.
Lastly, I bought a size 54 and it fits be near perfect. I'm 6'1" and weigh about 185. I am a bit v shaped so I have a big upper body and skinny waist. The jacket is definitely snug at 54 and I could have probably gone to a 56, but I preffered snug and figured it will break in a bit too.
Yes, I recommend this product.
