Dainese Cage Leather Jacket Designed for those in search of a technical article and a sports look with a careful eye on price, the Cage Leather Jacket offers both elevated protection and ergonomics in the finest Dainese tradition and may be seen as an entry level model thanks to its excellent quality/price ratio. Provided with homologated protectors and back protector/Thorax chest protector pockets, excellent comfort is ensured in the Dainese Cage by the adjustment of collar and side volumes, inserts in Cordura Comfort elasticated fabric, the jacket-pants fastening zip, the 3D Bubble liner and a looser fit than the jackets used more for racing. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Tutu Cowhide leather Cordura Comfort fabric Inserts in elasticated fabric Adjustments strap on neck Waist adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Fixed 3D-Bubble liner air spaces Sanitized lining Pocket for Wave G1 and G2 back protector Pocket for thorax chest protector Reflective inserts 3 outer pockets 2 internal pockets Denoted as the Dainese G. Cage Pelle in Dainese's Catalog Note The video for this product incorrectly states that there is perforated leather along the arms on this jacket. In actuality, while it has a perforated look, it is not punched all the way through and will not ventilate in those areas. Primary ventilation will come through the stretch panels.

I bought this jacket because I want to get away from textile and back to leather. I ride in all seasons in the Northwest, which really means fall/spring and winter because that's about all we have here! Airflow is not a big concern, but this jacket flows well enough through the textile patches under the arms and on the sides. I wear a cheap Costco rain jacket/wind breaker when it rains. I am 5'10" and about 192#. I measure 44 around the chest. I bought a 56 because I want to put a sweater or other liner under during the winter. It fits loose (as expected). A 54 would have been perfect, otherwise. The fit is pretty accurate. The leather is top quality and the workmanship is very nice. The liner does not come out, so that's the reason I over-sized. The leather is light, though not thin or cheap. There is plenty of protection in the elbows and shoulders. You can add more for the back and chest, if that's what you want. It looks great and feels great. I am very happy with this purchase. It's a great jacket at a great price. (Black/white/blue is impossible to find in my size, by the way. It's a discontinued color, according to sites I found.)

I can't believe the quality of this product for the price. It is made out of quality materials, the finish is great, and it looks stylish. I was looking for a bag for commuting that would hold my laptop, my overpants while I walk to my office and my bike cover while riding to the ferry where I park, and maybe a book and such. This bag holds way more than that. The description does not give it justice. It has a waterproof built-in cover and waterproof zippers, it has a helmet holder (which I don't use, but it's built into the bag, so there is more storage which expands), the outer shell is water resistant, the outer pockets are large, there are inner pockets for wallets, pens, etc., there is a pocket for a back protector, but it can also be used for carrying documents (use a large zip lock bag; works great!). I used it to go grocery shopping and put two quarts of milk, 12 apples, and various other items. Did I mention is looks stylish? Red zipper pulls and a muted Dainese alien emblem. I am very happy with this backpack.

These boots fit great and are comfortable. They keep even heavy rain out here in Seattle and yet they are cool in warm weather. I do not walk much in them since most motorcycle boot soles are not made for that (I've worn out too many on my walk from the ferry to my office). The style is clean and up-to-date. The quality and fit are first rate. I would recommend them to any rider.

These boots fit great and are comfortable. I bought them for the rainy days here in Seattle and they have met my expectations. I do not walk much in them since most motorcycle boot soles are not made for that (I've worn out too many on my walk from the ferry to my office). The style is neutral, like so many other boots, but the quality and fit are first rate.
