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 74 74
Only plus is having a removable inner windproof liner Bought an Air 2 Tex two years ago and decided to get a newer mesh jacket a 2nd daily jacket. Was contemplating the Air Flux, the newer Air 3 Tex and the Air Frame. I commute daily to work through city traffic with temps ranging from 95-105F in humid conditions. Would say 50% of the time is through sub 20kmh speeds through traffic. Therefore my priority was the best air flowing/cooling and lightest daily jacket. A plus would be to have a removable inner liner option to block out some wind during colder nights which probably only constitutes to 20% of my riding time or as a light rain resistant layer if required. After much consideration decided to go with the AirFrame. In actual fact had the AirFlux as the first option since it looked like the lightest and flows the most amount of air, but sadly the local dealer here had no stock. It's a pity Revzilla doesn't ship to Malaysia. Just rode out with the Airframe straight from the dealer's shop, in 98F temps through the city traffic pace. Have to say that i am disappointed with the airflow. Don't get me wrong, it does flow some air once you get above 90kmh, but in stop and go traffic or moving speeds below 60kmh at 90F+ temps, i can't feel any airflow, and this is without the windproof liner attached of course. Just as a comparison, my older Air 2 Tex flows air much better at lower speeds and through city stop and go traffic. I suspect it is the tighter kind weave mesh used on the Air frame compared to that of the Air 2 or probably even Air 3 tex jackets that restricts amount of cooling and airflow. This and possibly the additional inner mesh liner which probably blocks air and evaporation effects in high temp conditions. My only consolation is that i can probably look forward to using the inner windproof liner in the colder nights. Dainese should make and sell just windproof and waterproof liners separately to be used for all their mesh and textile jackets. Then i could have possibly bought that instead to be used with my Air 2 Tex. Also to note that the arms, the fold area between your arms and biceps, does feel itchy against the inner mesh material and can be distracting to a point of annoyance especially while riding in hot climate. This was pointed out by someone here in the reviews earlier already and similar case for me. In summary, this jacket would be more ideal for temps not exceeding 90F, non humid climate, with more flowing kind traffic commute, and if you spent 50% of your journey filtering through traffic below 30kmh with temps above 90F, get something else. After all a mesh jacket is supposed to serve that primary purpose which is to keep you cool in hot climate. I hope Dainese comes out with an optional lightweight waterproof liner to be used for their mesh textile jacket range soon so at least i can perhaps use this jacket for long distance riding instead of daily town commuting as consolation, otherwise i would probably sell this jacket off eventually.

Hot weather solution At 6'1" and 185, after reading other reviews I ordered a size 52. I have long arms and shorter torso and this jacket fit just a touch smaller than I would like, but has a nice slim non bulky fit. It flows a lot of air, and provides elbow and shoulder protection, and I also purchased the back plate. The hot weather in Dubai can make any additional layers miserable, and this jacket is the compromise between being cool and being protected. A very thin removable liner zips and clips in or out in a couple minutes, and folds up small to fit in a pocket of a backpack. Nice feature for when the air cools a bit after the sun goes down. Overall very happy with the jacket. March 25, 2014
Great for my body type I'm 6'2" 175lbs so I'm tall and thin. When looking for a motorcycle jacket the Revzilla staff helped to inform me that you wnt something well fitted to avoid flapping at higher speeds. This was one of the only jackets that fit well in the chest and arm length. Luckily for me it also looks rad. The bottom of the jacket comes a little short when standing up, so in order to look good off the bike, it needs to be unzipped. Armor all sits well and feels good. It does not come w a back protector, but does have space for 2. March 24, 2014
Great fit, great function and great style I was looking for a spring through fall riding jacket. I decided on the Air Frame because of the removable windbreaker. I wish the windbreaker was an insulated liner as well. Otherwise I have to say this jacket fits perfect. I'm 5'3" the size 44 euro the right fit for me. There's only two outside pockets and a inner pocket. Overall I think its a great jacket and looks awesome. March 11, 2014
Great Jacket! The reason I feel compelled to write a review on this is because I ended up and hitting something on the road at night taking a fall at around 30-40 Mph with this thing on. I ended up hitting the road head and shoulders first and sliding down the road. My jacket now has 3 holes in it, one about the size of a 50 cent piece on the shoulder where the pad is and 2 nickel sized holes on each arm and the only injury I came away with was a scraped knee because I was wearing regular jeans. As far as i'm concerned this jacket does its job perfectly. Not only did It protect me when taking a fall it also kept me nice and cool when I would go out riding and I live in Florida. The only cons I can think is that it did fit a little small and that it didn't come with a back plate but that's about it. February 24, 2014
Great warm-weather jacket. Moves lots of air for hot days. Put in the liner on cooler days and is relatively warm with long sleeves underneath. I do wish the liner had a waterproof pocket, though. Sizing was true to the published Dainese size chart. I'm 5'10", just shy of 200 with a 44 inch chest. I ordered both the 54 and 56 and had to send the 54 back as it was tight (more than just snug) across the shoulders. The only other jacket I considered was the Rev'it Airwave, but decided against it as it does not have the wind liner. February 13, 2014
Great looking jacket with a lot of airflow A great looking jacket with excellent airflow. Feels well made, and strong. I usually don't like buying online brands I haven't used before, and this was my first Dainese jacket, but be sure it won't be the last. I absolutely love it. A great looking, fresh protective jacket. January 16, 2014
The mesh jacket to beat I live in Singapore which is highly humid and has an average day temperature of 30-33 deg C. So you really have to have a high air-flow jacket to tolerate the heatwaves here while ensuring protection on the streets. I've tried different types of mesh jackets but I keep coming back to the Dainese Air-Frame. This is my second Air-Frame (I sold the older one as I had lost weight and needed to go down one size) The Air-Frame has the right mix of mesh and textile layers and flows plenty of air at all times. It's also not too flashy (I bought the full black version) and I like it that the sleeves are not fitting/tight around the forearm unlike other higher-end Dainese like the Super Speed Textile. Around the torso, the fit is good without being too tight, and like most Dainese jackets, the Air-Frame is designed largely for slim/athletic builds. The only downside I can think of is that the mesh can make your skin around the arms feel a little itchy once in a while, but most of the time it's not an issue. It's not cheap, but Dainese gear is worth paying for. November 27, 2013

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

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: 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

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

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

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.

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 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 (0) 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
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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

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: 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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (1)
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.

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: 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

Lorenzo G: It has backspace for the Dainese G Level 1 and the G Level 2 backprotectors. Forcefield also makes a Level 2 backprotector that fits Dainese jackets so I'd look into that as well. Apr 11, 2012

Jonathan T: I have the Forcefield pro insert (medium) for this jacket and will say it fits fairly well. 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: 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

ScottC: This jacket is to me when the temp is at least 70F. Any cooler I grab my leather jacket. 65F at 60 mph is chilly in this jacket. Nov 23, 2011

  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
