Dainese Air-3 Textile Jacket 4.4 5 18 18
Pretty good jacket I bought this jacket for riding during the summer months in the Central Valley of California. So far so good, the airflow is phenomenal so it keeps me pretty cool when I'm moving. The protection isn't the best but I'd imagine if you were to lowside in it, you'd be fine as the elbow pads and shoulder pads are pretty thick. The fit is fine as long as you follow the euro to american guidelines. My jacket is a little loose on me but thats the way I wanted it for more comfort since I'm going to be sweating in it during the summer. One thing I did notice is that the jacket tends to run a little short at the waist. I wish it was 1 inch longer but I can deal with it since it's not a deal breaker. A great feature on the jacket is the dainese logo on the back of the jacket is reflective so if you're riding during the night and someone is driving up behind you, their headlights will reflect off the logo which is a neat feature. Overall, the jacket is comfortable, stylish, has superior air flow, and adequate protection. March 31, 2014
Excellent product! I tried the jacket yesterday for the first time. I was waiting for the weather to get warmer. It came with the elbows and sholder protections and i bought the Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector and even so it's like wearing nothing: it's light, the airflow is really good, comfortable, good cut and fit. I like it a lot. I don't know how it's gonna manage the rain yet. Really nice product. GOOD BRAND!! March 7, 2014
Perfect Summer jacket I tried this jacket today for the 1st time and it is fantastic. Especially for the summer conditions here in Australia. I was surprised just how light this jacket is. You can't tell from online photos but this is amazingly light. As somebody who is used to leather this almost feels like you have nothing on. As you'd expect the airflow is amazing. You can even feel the effects when walking in this jacket. When riding at speed it is cool, cool, cool and that is exactly why you need this jacket. If you commute to work like me, the last thing you want is to arrive hot and sweaty. That doesn't happen with the Air-3. There's more than enough options allowing you too tighten up or loosen the jacket to ensure a snug fit. The pocket for the back protector easily fits my Dainese Wave protector. The is a little bit of extra room so it's not a perfect fit but it is definitely useable. Tomorrow I will see how well it works to ride in and if the Wave cuts off too much airflow. Worst case I will need to invest in the Air G protector instead. As usual Dainese has done an outstanding job with this jacket and that's why I think they are the best in the business! http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-shield-air-g-level-2-back-protector February 25, 2014
Great Jacket but expensive Jacket is definitely a European fit. Good material, sturdy build, and has great airflow. The jacket seems a little thin/light and my guess is it wont protect much from a real accident. If you want real protection then definitely go with more armor. September 23, 2013
Cool cool jacket Worked out great. Good fit, I wish it had the 360 zip but other than that, it works great. Cool enough to use in the hottest of summer days and drys very quickly when it rains. The white however gets dirty fast. September 2, 2013
Great summer jacket. Great air flow. Lightweight. Great summer jacket. Great air flow. Lightweight. No option for liner, though. Might be useful for rain protection. August 26, 2013
Dainese Air-3 Textile Jacket Great summer jacket, air flow is awesome, I got a Dainese back protector along with it. Not a rain jacket though. August 12, 2013
Air Where? I read a number of the previous reviews and I'm not sure we're wearing the same jacket! The fit here is very good, particularly if you're slim to athletic in build. For reference, I'm 152lbs, 29in waist, 40 chest. The Italian cut is great if you're that sort of body. The forearms are cut quite slim. I have very little room around my wrists and the sleeves are a bit snug around the forearms. Great for the look, less good for air flow. Speaking of airflow. Perhaps my tolerance is alot less then these other reviews, but, compared to other summer mesh jackets I've owned, there is, markedly, less air flow in this jacket. It's not bad, but since this is the entire reason for this jacket to exist, I have trouble recommending it. Although lots of compliments so that's good, I suppose. Personally, for me, I would sacrifice a bit of fashion to not bake on the bike! July 10, 2013

Ray M: Need a jacket for protection with great air flow. Apr 10, 2014
A s: Replacement for my Air-2 jacket, which got a little torn up in a fall. Fantastic hot weather jacket. Mar 24, 2014
Hilesh G: Like dainese fittings, slim European cut. This is the perfect jacket for hotter weather, still allows plenty of airflow and confidence inspiring with the added protection Nov 3, 2013
S I: Really nice looking jacket, figure-hugging and cool in summer. I am 6'1" and 85kg and I bought size 50. Fits well but probably could have gone a size up. Very happy with the purchase. Oct 18, 2013
Henry J: Needed a new summer jacket, so I pulled the trigger based on Dainese quality, styling and customer positive reviews. Sep 19, 2013
Diego Lorenzo J asked: Is there a removable liner here for the chillier early mornings to work? Aug 20, 2013

Gevork G: No removable liner. This is strictly a light weight mesh jacket. Awesome for the scorching heat, but terrible for cooler temperatures.

The best way I can describe it is, the mesh sort of acts as an air conditioner. The cold air runs thru and thru.

Mornings in LA are cool again (about 65 F). I've already switched to by leather Dainese.

Hope this helps!

D. Archibald S: It does not have a liner of any kind. This is a strictly summer jacket. I live in Washington, DC and its always hot here in the summer. The first day I wore it, it felt like I wasn't wearing anything. I moved over my back protector from my other Dainese jacket and it fit perfectly. Aug 21, 2013
Miguel D: This jacket does not come with a liner. It is very free flowing for hot weather days. I bought the jacket in June so haven't had a chance to ride in cooler weather with it yet but would imagine you would need a warming layer underneath for chillier days. Aug 21, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi,
I am hesitating between a Dainese Air-3 and a Super Speed.
I am riding a Ducati MS1200 in a usually 90 degres 85% humidity environment.
I am worried Super Speed is short in air flow and worried Air-3 falls a bit short in protection for longer rides.

What do you recommend ?

With my thanks

Henry J: The Air-3 flow will depend on how loose or tight your fit. With high humidity it may not provide enough flow. The protection in this type of jacket is light weight...recommend using a good back protector. Also...buy the lightest color available for better cooling. Feb 10, 2014
Reply to Henry Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
D. Archibald S: I don't know much about the super speed, but I'm very comfortable with the dianese on any length ride. Washington DC's very hot and humid in the summer and it is my go to jacket. Feb 12, 2014

RevZilla: The Dainese Air-3 Textile Jacket does not contain a chest protector pocket. However, a standalone chest protector such as the Dainese Thorax Pro Chest Protector is a nice alternative for someone looking to add chest protection to this jacket. Mar 1, 2013

StookywanKenobi: I have both. The Air-3 offers the same protection as the Air-Frame, but the Air-3 provides more airflow. The Airframe, looks more like a regular jacket. Apr 16, 2013

RevZilla: The Dainese Air-3 Textile Jacket does not have a belt loop attachment. For piece of mind, the belt attachments are not effective anyway as they tend to release quite easily, especially on impact. Feb 19, 2013

RevZilla: No, the Dainese Air-3 Textile Jacket does not come with a connection zipper. If you are looking for a Dainese jacket that offers a connection zipper, I would recommend you to look at the Dainese Spedio D-Dry, the Dainese Air-Frame, or the Dainese Shotgun Jackets. Jan 9, 2013
