Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket

Focus

Continued comfort under changing weather conditions with excellent ventilation is hard to achieve in a ventilated jacket because whenever the temperature drops, the wearer immediately feels cold. In this case, the Dainese Air Frame offers the best solution by combining the ventilation achieved by ample inserts in mesh with protection against cold air offered by a remarkably lightweight windcheating insert. Provided with ample adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zip, homologated protectors and a pocket for a G-type back protector, this versatile jacket also comes in a ladies’ version.

Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket 4.7 5 87 87
Excellent hot weather jacket More than anything I wish I had purchased this jacket sooner. On days when I normally would think it's too hot to ride, it fits the bill perfectly. Sure, you make some sacrifices in protection with a mesh jacket, but it beats not riding. The impact areas seem fairly robust, hopefully I won't have to test that. For reference I'm 5'9", 165lbs, moderately athletic build, and the size 50 fits perfectly. In fact, it fits better than any jacket I own. Form fitting, but with full range of motion. Awesome jacket, and awesome experience plus fast shipping from Revzilla. I couldn't be happier. September 3, 2014
Excellent product nothing to say. this is very good product for summer and I guess early spring ride. I really recommend this to everyone. August 18, 2014
Typical Dainese Love this! The airflow is great, but the only complaint is that the zipper keeps getting stuck on something(no liner installed). August 15, 2014
Very nice quality jacket I spent a lot of time researching mesh jackets. I'm 6 ft and 165 lbs-really didn't want an "American cut" jacket. I wanted something that was non-bulky, fairly conservative looking and great airflow when hot outside. This jacket is the only one that met those requirements. Tried a fieldsheer hi-temp jacket in medium-tall which was massive, also tried the first gear mesh which was also massive. My Dianese is size 52. Based on current industry sizing, looks like Dianese is the only athletic cut gear on the market. August 4, 2014
Close, but not quite I read the review on Revzilla and watched the video. Upon receiving the jacket, I was disappointed. The style is good, the look is good, but the details are not there. First, there is a lack of adjustability. While I prefer velcro over snaps, that isn't the issue. I am 5'8", 190 lbs, 46" chest, 34" waist. I ordered a 58 based on the chart and the shoulders were great but I was not able to tighten it enough at the waist to make it snug. If I skidded down the street on my back, the jacket would be riding up around my arms, there was no way to get it tight enough. Second, was just an obvious attention to detail. When I put my arm through the sleeve, the inner mesh lining came out too. It didn't rip, just the looseness of the material followed my arm out and was very annoying. This has never been an issue with my Olympia jacket. Last, no back protector, seriously? I think the price is a little off since you will need to spend another $80 for a back protector. I liked the look a lot and was comfortable other than noted above, but the lack of adjustability made me return it to Revzilla (great customer service). July 12, 2014
Best mesh jacket out there I am 6 foot 41" chest. Should be a 52 but the 52 felt a bit tight so went with 54 which feels perfect. Of course the 52 was a better fit for protection factor of armor not moving around. But I have a little bit of a gut so I like it to feel slightly loose. Jacket looks great and feels like it will be protective. June 9, 2014
Great summer jacket I really like this jacket as the fit is perfect and comfortable at the same time. I have always worn BMW gear but this one definitely is at par or better for summer riding. It's clean cut and understated appeal is what I was looking for so I am overall very happy with this jacket. June 9, 2014
Light and Protected with some Sizing inconsistencies This jacket is exactly what has been described: light, breathable, quality Dainese textile with massive airflow and good protection. The jacket is well made, styling is spot on, and once you get the right size its fits perfectly. I'm 6'2 210 and I purchased a size 52 (like my other Dainese leather jacket) and it seemed a little too small in every direction. I swapped out for a 54 and it fits exactly like my leather does.

Thanks

Vladimir N: I found these to fit comfortably (they are not supertight because they do not stretch much), and you don't want it flapping around as you ride, so you should try 48 IMHO. Apr 13, 2014
Reply to Vladimir Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeffrey S: Probably the 48. It should fit fairly snugly. I'm 5'8, 143 lbs. Bought a size 50 when I weighed 35 lbs more and now the jacket is a little loose. Apr 13, 2014

A shopper asked: Is the windproof liner also waterproof? will it hold up to rains? Dec 12, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
logan l: Light rain yes, downpour no. This jacket is a great summer and spring jacket breathes well and the windproof liner helps in the cold. I live in Tucson Arizona were our winters are very mild. I just wear a sweater or jacket underneath and it does well. As far as rain goes you will find yourself soaked pretty fast especially highway and freeway speeds. I love mine, and I also got the upgraded back protector. I'm 5'7 150 lbs. And toned and got a size 52. When I usually wear 46 to 48 jacket. A 54 would of been perfect but I'm happy with it overall. Hope that helps. Dec 12, 2013
Reply to logan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Vladimir N: The liner is a very light material that will helo you stay a bit warmer if you need to, but it will not keep you dry. Also it's not breathable either, which is good because it's so thin it makes it warmer. It's not a thermal liner by any means. But it's so light you can fold it and store just about anywhere. It helps on a cooler summer night coming back after a hot day, but that's about it. Strictly a warm weather jacket. Dec 12, 2013
Reply to Vladimir Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
David V: It can handle light mist, but not much more. It's intended for hot days and has great air flow. Here in Seattle, if it looks like it's going to rain, I throw one of my rain jackets in my backpack just in case it's more than a drizzle. Dec 23, 2013

A shopper asked: I'm 6'0", 40 chest with sleeve length of 33 (work shirt length - i realize dainese measures differently). I've worn a 52 dainese leather jack and like the sleeve length and torso length, but just a very tiny bit big through the chest. But with back protector it's fine and I like to be able to throw on a sweat shirt on occasion when it gets cold. That said, I suspect a 50 would be just perfect in chest. So my question here is if I buy a 50 as a warm weather jacket (where I'd pretty much just be in a t shirt with a back protector), are the sleeves going to be too short? Yeah I'm thin and on the tall side. dainese / Icon fits me best, just seems I'm always in between sizes. Thanks. Aug 9, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Dedac: I looked into this for a similar reasons, and the sleeves on the size 50 are about a half an inch shorter than the 52. So if you can remember where the sleeve came to, you can measure from there. Don't forget to account for riding position when thinking about the sleeve length though. I stuck with the 52 so that the sleeves would cover the base of my gloves. May 13, 2013
Reply to Dedac Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Wafflefry: I am also 6'0" but with a 42" chest and I use a 52 and the sleeves do have a bit extra past the wrist so yours should be spot on. Dainese seems to get it right with sleeve lengths for guys our size. Mar 31, 2013

lukeinla: I have long arms, I am 6'1 and the 50 sleeves are long enough and the body tight enough with a t shirt and i still have room for a thin sweater on cooler evenings. Aug 20, 2012

Jose D asked: What about elbow protectors? Oct 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Toby P: It has elbow pads and shoulder pads. I bought the dianase back protector too.

I actually went down/across a hood in this jacket. It got tore up a bit where it hit the asphalt but I've still woren it since I did fracture my previusly injured shoulder but it wasn't the one that took the impact so i think it was just bad luck. I would recomend it for sure. It really is a jacket for hot weather and when you really don't want to wear a a jacket, but know the reality of how little people pay attention when driving these days.

Reply to Toby Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Vladimir N: They are included and excellent, very comfortable and have a huge coverage. The only thing to remember is to make sure you tighten up those sleves so they don't flap in the wind. I love this jacket in the summer months, locks and fits great and the protection is as good or better than any mesh jacket I've tried. Highly recomended. Make sure to get the optional back protector, which is also fantastic! Oct 28, 2013

A s: The Air-Frame has the standard elbow protectors found in most (all?) of their jackets. It is not detachable and stitched into the liner, and offers the same rating of protection as the shoulders. Hope this helps! Oct 28, 2013

logan l: It has built in elbow protectors. If you also want back protection I recommend the newer Dainese back protector. The jacket only comes with a thin foam one. So upgrading was a must for me. Oct 28, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Greg M: I had the G2 and returned it for the Forcefield 003 sport lite back protector. It is lighter and has a slimmer profile which makes the jacket fit better. It is also half the price of the g2. I don't see the down side. Apr 21, 2014

George B: I ordered a G2 for my men's 48 jacket and it was too large. It fits but over-stretches the pocket to the point that it looks like it'll break a seam within a few uses so I exchanged it. It's also about 1.5" thick so take that into account when sizing your jacket. Feb 27, 2014

A shopper asked: For a jacket that is meant to be worn in the summer/hot months why does Dainese make this jacket 80-100% black? I think this jacket would flow a ton of air and probably be one of the best jackets on the market for summer riding, but it being in mostly black defeats the purpose. Once you come to a stop you start to roast. We need more jackets with lighter colors, how about reversing the black and grey colors, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Mar 26, 2012

Craig S: I do not have a D-Air 2 or 3. From what I can tell for RevZilla is that the D Air-3 is a slight redesign of the D-Air 2 and doesn't have as much mesh as the D Air-Frame and doesn't have a removable wind-breaker liner. I can say that my D Air-Frame has been great for me the really warm-hot days of riding.

A s: I have both the Air-Frame jacket and pants, and I have to say it is a very worthy set of protective gear.

RevZilla: The yellow on the Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket is a Hi-Viz yellow and will compliment the Hi-Viz on the Shoei Neotec Borealis nicely. One thing to keep in mind is that due to the difference in material, it will not be an exact color match. However, we still believe they will go well together. May 7, 2013

Wafflefry: Go with either the 50 or 52 (if you plan on wearing any thicker garment underneath besides a t-shirt), these do run snug, euro fit, especially if you plan on a back pad. It slightly stretches but not by much.

RevZilla: Assuming you meant 39" chest instead of 49" chest, it sounds like a 48 would be a better fit for you. If you want to be able to layer up, then stick with a 50, however, for summer jackets a snug fit is usually best. Feb 10, 2012

A shopper asked: I know that this jacket is designed to fit with the Wave G back protector, but does anyone know how well it fits the Air G Level 2 or the Forcefield Insert Pro for Dainese? Those two offer CE Level 2 protection as opposed to Level 1 in the Wave G, but their shapes appear quite different, so I am wondering how well they would fit in the Air Frame's back pocket. I wouldn't want them to be too loose and moving around while riding, or too tight such that it is difficult to insert. Apr 11, 2012

It's not as tight a fit as I'd like and there is a little lateral movement at the bottom (Forcefield should certainly look into making the bottom a little wider if they want riders to feel completely comfortable recommending the insert), but I feel it's doing its job just fine. If you're worried about it I'd go with the Dainese Air G Level 2, but I don't think you're regret the Forcefield either and I like how the Forcefield molds to my back a little more. Note: I certainly wouldn't go Forcefield pro insert size small. At that size (even with the alternate pocket for the smaller size) there is just too much room for movement in my opinion. Aug 24, 2012

Carleesimo: The Air-Frame jacket has two pockets for the two different shaped back protectors. I however have the Forcefield back protector. It isn't shaped like the Dainese back protectors, but it still fits in the jacket.I put the protector in the wave pocket. As long as you have the correct size of jacket, you shouldn't have any issues with the back protector sliding around. Jul 24, 2012

A shopper asked: Hi, I'm looking for a good quality warm weather jacket. My qustion regards sizing. I'm 5'9" with a thin build - 145 lbs., 37" chest. Can I size the jacket to fit or will it be baggy on me? Aug 21, 2013

A s: Hey, I'm 5'9" 165lbs and I bought the Air Frame Textile in a size 48 and it is the best fit of any of the jackets that I have ever owned. I had bought two other mesh jackets before this one through the years trying to find one that fits as well as the Air Frame. My problem was always too baggy in the body(mainly stomach area) and arms. The body of this jacket fits perfectly with just enough room to comfortably store something small in each of the front pockets while in a sport bike position and the arms cinch with 2 different snap positions so the armor hugs your arms so in case of a spill the armor will not twist. I wasted a few dollars trying to find this jacket, hopefully this helps so you won't do the same. This jacket fits great on my cafe'd 75 CB200, my Thruxton and my BMW R100. Aug 21, 2013

logan l: This jacket fits very small, especially if you want to add in the back protection. My build is 5'7 150 lbs , 46 in chest and I ordered a 51 size. So I'd say order two sizes larger. I ordered a 48 and had to return it. I also put the dainese back protector in it. It's a great jacket. I live in Arizona so a good jacket that breathes is important. This jacket does good in hot weather and protects your skin. Aug 21, 2013

Wing Ho L: My air-frame textile jacket is 48 with back protector fits me well. I'm about 5"10 140lbs and 36" chest. it also has neck, waist , wrist and sleeve adjustment. it will not look baggy on you. Aug 23, 2013

David G: I have owned this jacket for over a year now. Just wore it today on a 2 hour ride in hot, sticky weather on my Honda CBR600RR. The stitching and quality is exceptional!!! Not the case with some of the other popular jackets out there (it does have a left handed zipper which takes some getting used to). This is a warm weather jacket only. As for the sizing, I found the chest and torso to be rather form fitting, not too tight, but just about right for me at 6' 2" 200lbs size46. The sleeve length runs nice and long for the reach on a sport bike. My ONLY complaint, the waist is quite short, I wish the back waist area was slightly longer to accommodate the reach on a sport bike. I compared this jacket to the Alpinestars T-GP-R Mesh jacket which WAS VERY LOOSE AND BAGGY fitting.

To answer your question directly, I would be very surprised if ANY of the Dainese jackets, including the Air-Frame, would be loose and baggy on you if you ordered your correct size. They are a European fit, which is much more tailored and form fitting than an American cut jacket.

The worst that can happen is you have to exchange it for a different size or return it. I returned 2 other jackets to Revzilla without any problem at all, it was very easy.

Best of Luck!

A s: The jacket has slight, snap-button tightening at the neck, hips, biceps, and wrists. Depending on how slim your frame is, this might be enough or might not. I can say that the jacket has typical slim, European sizing mechanics though, so that is in your favor.

I'm a 38R in suit size with about the same height as you, and the 48 fits me pretty solid. It's not baggy and I can't wear a sweatshirt or anything bulky underneath without feeling constricted, so that's pretty ideal for a riding jacket in my opinion. I don't use the clips to snap anything tighter, either. The liner also takes out the wind if that's a concern, and packs down to about the size of a folded restaurant napkin — really small.

It's cut right to your pants though, so depending on how tall your torso is, that might be a factor, but it's supposed to be right at your waist if you are wondering.

I hope this helps. I really like the jacket a lot.

A shopper asked: Want to make sure the wind liner covers the arms and sleeves as well. If it is a full liner how does it attach to the end of the sleeves? Feb 12, 2012

Carleesimo: The windproof liner is sleeved. The liner has fabric tabs with snaps on the end that you thread through loops in the jacket sleeves. Jul 24, 2012

Wafflefry: It sure is! It uses a 2 button in sleeves system and one in the neck with front panel zips to attach. It is super thin and can easily fit under most seats. Great to start of with on chillier 60 degree mornings and quickly pop eye once it heats up. Although it states to only hand wash this jacket I have thrown in in the washing machine on a gentle cycle and air dried (which it dries SUPER fast). Jun 11, 2012

RevZilla: The Removable wind-breaker liner is a full sleeve liner, however, it is not a thermal liner. Most of Dainese Jackets attach with snaps at the end of the sleeves and at the top of the collar with a full zipper connection complimenting Dainese's tailored fit. Please see below pic. May 3, 2012

A shopper asked: What is the lower-end temperature you would recommend for this jacket with the liner? Mid-spring to mid-fall means nothing to me, as it is 90F here in mid November. 60F? 70F? Nov 20, 2011

lukeinla: 60 degrees with the liner is fine, it has such a nice fit for athletic build. I can even fit thin sweater Aug 20, 2012

Carleesimo: That's really a personal preference. I put the liner in when the temperature drops into the lower 60's. Jul 24, 2012

Wafflefry: The liner works well in the 55-70 range, after that I remove mine when in stop and go traffic or low speed traveling. If you are going a steady and extended 60+mph I would up that by about 10 degrees. You will REALLY appreciate it when the temperature goes over 90 as it did here over the weekend :-) Jun 11, 2012

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.

This is one of the larger air flow jackets in the Dainese line. It's going to flow some of the most air in that hot weather specific riding condition. It's another nice pairing option for the Drake Air Textile Pants.

So, what you're going to see is the main construction, that in the impact areas has a textile, but in the chassis it's going to be a mix of standard mesh as well as boomerang, mesh, which is a tighter weave. It offsets the style a little bit, it's got a really nice line to it. The Air-Frame Textile Jacket has the leather Dainese logo across the front. The beauty of this jacket is that you can  really stretch it two, to and a half seasons. Hot weather riding? You're perfect. Early to mid-fall, early spring, there's a wind-proof liner that zips in very quickly to this guy that you can quickly pull out. So, what you have the ability to do, is turn that air flow down a notch, and maybe even add a thermal liner on those colder morning, and you can really stretch this guy.

It has all the same features that you see from Dainese, from it's style perspective, the embossed logo buttons, you have a nice leather roll comfort collar here. If we open it up, I'm going to show you it's a two snap at the top. Open this guy up, you can see this internal liner here is rib stopped and behind it's going to be that basic mesh. There is a 360 zip, but really this wind-proof liner is going to be that air blocking feature to allow you to stretch this into other seasons of the year.

Turn and face the side for me, Jason. You saw a double snap across the bicep. You have a slight stretch panel here under the arm, and then you have the microflection across the bicep here too, to be seen riding at night. Turn backwards for me Jason. The coolest thing, I think, in my opinion about this guy from a style perspective, you have the two big Dainese Demon Eyes here on the back. You see the logo? It's reflective batch, but you have a main construction of boomerang mesh with a standard mesh, which is a wider weave that makes up the mirroring of the Dainese logo that flows down the back here. So, it's just a nice touch there. It's a style omit. You're looking in the $200-$300 range.

Turn back around for me Jason. Jason is 5'1'', 175 lbs, 40 inch chest. He's wearing a size 50, this would be his size. Step down here, it's going to be maybe a Zyntecs or Air 2 Mesh Jacket, a step up is going to be the Shotgun or the Portland 2, which have a little bit less mesh, start to have a little bit more protective elements, slightly different styles. And remember; the match for this guy is going to be the Drake Air Pants. Other colors available, this is black. There are a few other colors, they all have black chassis and they have some different colors, some accent colors. So, those, are red and there's some other colors as well.
