Dainese Racing Perforated Pelle Jacket This technical jacket vaunts an aggressive, distinctive sports look with aluminum inserts on the shoulders that complete this models aesthetics and design while providing greater protection. Cowhide, composite protectors on the shoulders and elbows, and the pocket for the G-type back protector ensure protection in case of fall. Comfort, ergonomics, and practicality are ensured by elasticated inserts on the neck, sleeves and sides, and the jacket-pants fastening zipper. Air inlets on the sides and chest permit ideal inner temperature control. Protection Composite protectors certified to EN 1621.197 Co-injected shoulder with aluminum insert Abrasion and Tear Resistance Cowhide leather S1 fabric Comfort Ergonomics Jacket-trousers fastening system Waist adjustment Inserts in elasticated fabric Elasticated inserts Collar with elasticated inserts Temperature Regulation Air inlets on the chest and sides Sanitized lining Localized perforation Other Pocket for Wave G1 and G2 Reflective inserts Internal pocket 2 outside pockets Please Note Images are of NON-Perforated version, but this is the perforated jacket.

It's been about three weeks since I've used the jacket, and have mainly used it for commute to work (~15 mile ride). In Houston, TX, mornings are cool, but my ride back home around 4 PM is scorching hot with temperatures reading around 100°F (actually feels like 110°F with humidity). I used to ride home without a jacket, but oddly enough, the jacket keeps me cooler. The evidence shows when I see how much sweat is on my clothes/arms, which is a lot less. Perforation on arms, chest, and the two vented pockets will keep you cool when you are riding, even on a hot day.
I am 5'8", 165 lbs; purchased this in white/50euro. Only thing lacking on this jacket is back protection, which I plan on purchasing soon. I have 38" chest, and sized up one to allow space for the back protector. However, I may not have broken in the jacket all the way yet, so do not be afraid if it is a bit snug at first.
Adds confidence to your ride, visually and you feel secure with this jacket on. If you can afford it, by all means, give it a shot!
Yes, I recommend this product.
