Dainese Razon Perforated Leather Jacket The road flashing beneath your saddle, the wide open spaces of the prairie, the pulsing of the pistons you can feel in your arms and everywhere else as sunlight glints off the engine chrome, and choppers riding in formation roar down the road. Constructed in leather that is both thick and soft at the same time, the Razon jacket combines innovative technical solutions like patented Microelastic inserts with the essential style and strong character of the bikers who wear it. Provided with removable composite protectors, ventilation, and removable thermal lining, this jacket is also available in a Women's version. Protection Composite protectors certified to Standard EN1621.1/97 Ergonomics and Comfort Microelastic elasticated inserts Inserts in elasticated fabric Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Air inlets on the chest Localized perforation Removable thermal liner Sanitized lining Other Pocket for G1 and G2 back protector Pocket on removable liner 2 outside pockets Internal pocket Please Note Image is of non-perforated jacket.
I wanted a jacket that had a great cut, and subtle to almost no branding on it. I needed something I could wear around town more casually than my New Delmar jacket.
The style is great. The leather is supple, however it feels stiffer (esp in the neck area) and thinner than my New Delmar.
There is one QA problem and it's very small, so small most would likely not notice. On the right arm, there is slightly too much stretch fabric in the panel. This causes it to bunch up. A minor thing, but it shouldn't be there in such an expensive jacket.
I can't imagine this working so great in a super sport riding position. Those "stretch panels" provide very minimal articulation vs an accordion style. I can comfortably ride on my CRF250L and 1978 CB125 around town.
The liner that came with mine isn't a vest as is mentioned in one review, it's a full jacket. It's decently warm enough for a sunny 50 degree day riding around town or fifteen minutes on the highway. The perforation is substantial and I'm sure it will be great in the warmer months.
I'd been using the Gerbing's liners in a winter glove, but that was very cumbersome. After a liner died I decided to try something different. These are extremely comfortable, give good tactile feedback and the heating is very even compared to the Gerbing glove liners. My hands stay comfortable, with no part getting too cold or hot, everything is just right.
As far as durability goes, I'd be surprised if I get a solid 12 months of year-round riding out of them. They should start making these in the USA like the rest of their garments. The quality difference is apparent vs. the USA made jacket.

These are really nice. The rear is tailored so it's puffy when walking around or standing up. As soon as you sit down they feel custom made. So comfortable.
I wear one or two thin base layers underneath these into the 20s and my legs are always warm. No leaks. They look as though they'd hold up well in a crash, even for textile. No loose threads or anything suspicious to say they will wear out soon.
These are seriously high quality. I'm a very big fan, they should last for many years.
I've been known to wear suspenders from time to time. These are some of the nicest I've ever owned.
They do a great job, and keep my Misano pants up even after many standup / sitdown / foot downs. I have a small waist / rear and my hips don't exist, so usually there's nothing to really keep them up. Very thick and high quality elastic bands. Highly recommended if you think you need them.
Gerbing's Heated Socks Motorcycling and cold feet dont mix. Your feet control braking, shifting and provide stability when you stop. Thats why Gerbings developed their new Microwire Sock Liners to wrap snugly around each foot, and deliver even heat to the tops as well as the bottoms. And the socks are cut specifically for left/right feet for a perfect fit and better warmth. Made from a lightweight, wicking, four-way stretch material, the new Sock Liners feature Gerbings patented Microwire Heat Technology for the kind of smooth, soothing heat only Gerbings can deliver. And these new Sock Liners sport a special long cut that pulls up over your calf, making them ideal regardless how tall your boots are. Gerbings Heated Sock Liners. Theyll help your feet defeat the cold. Gerbing's socks are made from a lightweight, wicking, four-way stretch material The socks are heated on the bottom and top of the sock concentrating heat toward the toes which adds extra heat where it is needed most Extended height to cover the calf Wide elastic band for extra comfort Sock design is specific to left and right for a better fit AWM round power cable maximizes comfort Hand-washable anti-bacterial-treated material Patented Microwire heating technology Lifetime Warranty on the sock liners' Microwire heating technology Specifications Heat Microwire heat technology Source 12-volts DC Current 1.4amps/pair Watts 17 Watts Surface Temp 135F 5 at 32F Gerbing's and RevZilla STRONGLY recommend the use of a temperature controller with this product, failure to do so may cause burns.
Rukka Lobster Gore-Tex Gloves The fleece-lined Rukka Lobster gloves offer extreme warmth and waterproofing, without sacrificing protection. Features Textile gloves with leather palm Fully waterproof, windproof and breathable Gore-Tex gloves Extra warmth for colder riding conditions Fleece lining Scaphoid protection with molded PVC/carbon fiber mix Visor wiper on left hand Velcro cuff closure and drawstring opening to seal out the elements
My hands are always cold, but I love riding. So I bought these in conjunction with some Gerbings heated glove liners.
I can now ride at highway speeds in 20 degree F weather, and the temp controller is set to about 3/4 or lower once I'm up to temp.
Nice leather on the inside of the hand, TPU palm slider with memory foam is a great touch. Comfortable and waterproof. Used for about 6 hours during a steady rain / mist and no leaks. No wet spots riding for about an hour the other day during the latest snow storm here in NY.
One important thing to note, is that while there are dual finger compartments on the outside, on the inside there is a liner that still separates you into single fingers.
As far as sizing goes, I bought one size up from their chart's recommendation. The liners fit tightly but have broken in nicely.
Dainese New Delmar Leather Jacket (Perforated) Dedicated to the most competitive sport riders with a design essential and aggressive at the same time, the New Delmar jacket offers the technical excellence and high performance of Dainese racing apparel.

This jacket is for you if: you know and appreciate excellent craftsmanship, want to wear something that will provide great protection, and look incredible.
I occasionally put this jacket on just to feel how nice it is. Nothing I own compares (and yes, I have bought other high end jackets.)
I wouldn't have purchased this unless it was a closeout item. I am very glad I did. Any future leather gear will likely be Dainese. In comparison to my older A* suit, this is better. Protection is equally good, however the Dainese leather is very buttery and the hefty weigh of the jacket disappears when you put it on. It's magic!
Cannot wait for warmer weather. This thing is going to be on my back in a heartbeat.

I've used these to ride in 20 to 65 degree weather this fall and winter. Stayed dry in the rain.
I can go at highway speeds in 40 degree weather for about an hour before my hands hurt. That's on a bike with no hand wind protection or heated grips. Oh and I frequently have cold hands no matter what I do in the winter. So YMMV.
These are going to be great for the spring and summer between 50-70 degrees, especially with a wet spring. Keeping these in my rotation for sure.
Gauntlets fit over Klim Misano, and Dainese New Delmar jackets just fine. Lots of elastic there so you get a nice fit even with a ton of layers on underneath.
The fit is tight and proper, however the palms like to bunch and that gets uncomfortable after a while. Gives me a slippery feeling that took some getting used to. Not a fan, but it's probably unavoidable with any insulated multi-layer glove.
If these disappeared and I had to buy a new set, I'd probably spend a little more for a full leather gore-tex glove with minimal or no insulation, and use a heated liner. Or just have elective surgery for cyborg hands, which of course - do not freeze and require no gloves (only if you spring for the titanium ones though.)
Drum dyed leather top Molded knuckle protector with gel padding High density padding on fingers, cuff, and wrist Double leather wrap around palm Reflective stripe Double cuff closure Available in Mens sizes S2XL
These were my first set of full leather, gauntlet style gloves.
They will provide decent abrasion resistance. I had a 20mph low side on a track and they held up. After that crash though, I realized I needed better hand protection. There is barely any padding, and the gauntlets are flimsy. If you can only afford the most basic protection - these will work. Otherwise spend a bit more and save those paws.
Two Brothers VALE M-2 Slip-On Exhausts Slip-On exhaust systems replace your existing s-bend pipe and exhaust canister. Two Brothers' s-bends are manufactured from .035 thin wall stainless steel. They then polish them to a satin finish. Two Brothers' uses only #304 stainless which will never rust. After a few heat cycles the steel turns a golden amber color which is the characteristic signature of high quality stainless steel. These systems not only add horsepower but also can drop significant weight from your bike. This type of canister can be mounted in the original canister position or in a high mounted canister position depending on the bike. The entire line of TBR M Series canisters feature the same high level of quality construction and are designed to be fully serviceable in the event of damage, routine maintenance or the occasional repack. Two Brothers Racing's V.A.L.E. slip-on exhaust systems and flange-on systems feature CNC'ed aluminum inlets. These special designs provide for ease of maintenance as well as simplified construction, which is what a premium performance product is all about! The exhaust note produced by all of their Top Level exhaust systems is best described as being deep and throaty without suffering from the shrill whine normally associated with other manufacturer's straight through muffler canisters. V.A.L.E. V ariable A xis L ocking E xhaust. The V.A.L.E. system is TBR's revolutionary and patented method of attaching their muffler canisters to the exhaust tube without the use of springs or welding. Their V.A.L.E. systems allow the muffler assembly - exhaust tube and canister - to be positioned perfectly on the bike before all the mounting hardware is fully tightened. Once the canister and exhaust tubes are properly aligned, the V.A.L.E. assembly locks the muffler canister to the exhaust tube assuring a perfect, leak-free fit. NOTE Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.
