I have been wearing the Avro White/Blue combo for over 4 months. Started wearing it right before the winter began in October here in the Northern VA/DC area. The quality from Dainese is top notch. Great details and craftsmanship on this jacket. The style of the Avro jacket is unmatched. The jacket is a head turner but I suppose if you are looking for something more subtle then you wouldn't be reading this review.
Fit wise it runs true to size and it is a sport fit. I am 6 foot 1 inch and 160 lbs. I bought the 54. I could have gone to the 52 since I have a 41 inch chest with a deep breath. Going a little bigger gave me room to wear some layers underneath. The 54 is a good fit with just a little room for a comfort fit. Going to a 52 would have made the sleeves a bit shorter but it would be a snug fit. On the bike the jacket just fades away. Very comfortable in the race position. The jacket has a liner and even with the small areas of perforation it breathes quite a bit. Those S1 stretch panels let air right through. I am able to use this jacket with a t-shirt and an under armor base layer 2.0 down to about 45 degrees. Any colder and you really feel the cold air penetrate the jacket. But my tolerance for cold is quite low. Take out the liner and you can use the jacket up to 75 degrees before it starts to get a bit warm.
Shoulder protection is stylish and comfortable. The elbow and forearm protectors also offer high levels of protection.
The only negative is the price combined with no back protector. At this price point you would think a back protector would be included.
So If you are looking for high Italian fashion with good protection then this is the jacket for you.
