I have fallen so deeply in love with this jacket. In a world where almost all motorcycle jackets seem to be made for guys with big beefy arms and torsos, it has been extremely difficult to find a slim-fitting jacket. This is it - and it is made absolutely impeccably. Also, it makes you look like a BAMF.
Dainese is expensive - but it is worth it. The protection is exceptional; arms all very well-covered with padding and hard armor where appropriate. I use the Dainese Wave back protector, which is seriously unnoticeable in this jacket. I wish Dainese gave it at least a little pad or something to start with instead of forcing you to buy the extra protector, but I digress.
The leather is beautiful and of extremely high quality - very sturdy and thick yet extremely flexible and comfortable. The fit is just unreal. It doesn't make you look a marshmallow. I am 130 lbs, 5' 8.5", very slim frame and the 46 fits me perfectly. (You are supposed to buy leather jackets a little snug, as they break in and stretch a bit with time)
This jacket is comfortable down to about 55 with just a T-shirt on. I have ridden in about 85 with it, and it is comfortable while moving - gets a bit toasty when stationary. Totally worth it for the protection and style. I chose this over the perforated one for the versatility; this is comfortable enough in warm weather and much better-suited to chilly weather.
If you can afford it, and want a jacket that actually fits to the body rather than floating around away from it, and want something that is made with extreme care and quality, buy this or another Dainese jacket.
