Dainese Avro C2 Leather Jacket 4.8 5 62 62
Not as much air-flow as I expected. I purchased the black/white/fluo red version and it's easily the best looking jacket in any group that I'm part of. It pulls compliments from riders and non-riders alike. My only qualm is that I don't notice any airflow unless it's cold. I somewhat expected it being non-perf, but I hoped it would ventilate a little more than it does. Anything above 75-80 degrees will suck in this thing. Be especially aware of where your gauntlet gloves interface with the ends of the sleeves. I've experienced a lot of sweat build-up there and it has created a pretty foul odor similar to what hockey pads would smell like. I smell it every time I bring my hands anywhere near my face. If you plan on riding in hot weather, go with a perfed jacket over this one. It's otherwise perfect for my favorite time to ride: at night . June 26, 2015
Excellent three season (Fall, Winter, Spring) jacket in the South Purchased the Avro this winter. I've ridden in temperatures as low as 40 degrees in March and in the upper 80s in May. (I'm in Central Alabama, where we still have another 20 degrees to go up before summer). The jacket flows some air, which makes it surprisingly comfortable on warm days. If there is an ambient breeze, the jacket can be comfortable at stops with temps in the low 80s, and due to the venting (there's not much) and it is comfortable while riding to around 87 degrees. After that, the rider is warm, perspiring, and his/her attention is taken away from riding and toward matters of climate control, which at upper-range temperatures, this jacket is ill-suited to provide. This jacket is best characterized as a Fall-Winter-Spring jacket in the deep south. In the far north of the country, it may serve riders well for the entire riding season. The Jacket's construction is exceptional. It fits well...though perhaps just a little smaller than a 54 should fit. I bought this to do a little extra layering underneath it in the winter, and it works for that. I usually wear a Dianese size 52, as I'm 5 foot 9 and weigh around 165 with a fairly normal build. As long as your sizing is close, the protective pieces will stay where you need them in a get-off. The quality of the armor and padding is such that one cannot help but be convinced that you are wearing fantastic protection, and the protection is stylish as well. I bought this jacket because of its level of protection, and in that area I have complete confidence. While not made of weather proof leather, My jacket has experienced some rain (we get scattered showers in Montgomery) and some minor application of leather conditioner has completely removed any sign the jacket was ever wet. Properly cared for, this jacket can survive the occasional rain event with no problem -- though I get the impression that routine riding in rain forests in this model should be avoided. Nonetheless, prospective buyers should not sweat the jacket getting hit by the odd downpour. Overall, it is another excellent product from Dianese. As with many of their products, it is a bit pricey, but you get good safety coverage across a medium range of temperatures on this one for the price. Despite my nit-picking above, I am very satisfied with the purchase. May 7, 2015
Love The Jacket Amazing Jacket just really expensive. But if you want this style I guess you have to pay for it. May 4, 2015
all of the features I was looking for This jacket has every feature I was looking for from having a liner to the pocket for a chest protector. Its also warm, my first commute to workit was 29 degrees out and at highway speeds I wasn't frozen. March 19, 2015
My new favorite Jacket I love the Avro...and all the positive reviews are spot on. If you are border line with your chest size and the sizing chart, I do recommend going up to the next size. I tried a 52 at first but it was stressed heavily across the chest and was restricting movement. I bumped up the 54 and fit is spot on....sporty but you can still straighten your arms. Also I wanted a premium heavy duty jacket able to take track days and work for a commuter who needs a jacket to wear on and off the bike. It was between this and the shadow collection from A-stars but in the end, I love the Dianese style. March 16, 2015
It's a nice jacket. Pretty solid jacket. Ridden it through winter in Arizona. The liner is warm and snug, and when it hits deep winter (at least for AZ), I put on my favorite hoodie on top of it and I'm good to go. A little warning when you start sweating with the liner, the liner snags to your skin. It's not uncomfortable, but when it comes time to take off the jacket, it is a PAIN getting it off. I'm rockin' this with a pair of the perf. Delta Pro C2's...not going to lie I get a lot of attention on and off the bike; which is just what I need. Big price tag, but it's a good investment if (heaven forbid) it ever came time for a spill April 29, 2015
Best jacket I tried I tried on many jackets. This jacket, while being the most expensive, is also offers the most protection, good airflow for a leather jacket, removable liner. This jacket is basically for maximum protection in all non-rainy above 50 degree weather. It's comfortable and stylish as well. November 24, 2014
High quality This jacket is comfortable and well armored. Airflow could be better. I am 6'1" and 135lbs, the size 50 jacket fits me well. August 25, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Christopher S: Revzilla reviews and of course the Dianese name. Jun 26, 2015
Jason J: I was looking for a 3-season leather jacket to replace my Revit Excalibur jacket (outstanding jacket BTW). My Excalibur offered great protection but got pretty shredded when I went down. So, I was looking to increase my protection level on a slide or tumble (i.e. leather). The back protector upgrade for this jacket looks very nice. I also liked the styling of the jacket, even though they didn't have the color pattern combination I was looking for. May 22, 2015
sharleen b: cause it's sexy
hardly anyone will have one on
from research the only negative i've encountered about this jacket is the price tag.
May 12, 2015
Todd C: Has everything I wanted in a leather race jacket Apr 27, 2015
Daniel M: High level of protection and style Apr 17, 2015
Chris W: Great lines, great name, came with a thermal liner, and had the safety features that I was looking for. Mar 24, 2015
G E: Seeking top level (C2-rated) protective jacket for cooler weather riding. Will likely get a second jacket for warm season, as I'm not sure this will flow enough air for SE U.S. Summers. Also looking for something that will interface with a set of riding pants, so this jacket seems to do all that well. Mar 8, 2015
Jonathan E: One of the best rated jackets on Revzilla and I love the styling. Mar 8, 2015
Matthew L: Great styling, highly-recommended by Revzilla (this is huge, in my book). Protection seems top-notch. Mar 2, 2015
Michael L: previous experience with brand. Excellent jacket Feb 14, 2015
Crystal R: Hi, RevZilla customers, I picked this jacket because of its distinct features, and it's a good bang for your buck. Dainese is a reliable and trusted name. Jan 3, 2015
Bernardo M: I chose this jacket because of the looks. It looks great and offers protection everywhere. Dec 18, 2014
Charles G: Can't break my Dianese habit and needed something with a liner and max protection(sans hump). This fits the bill. Dec 9, 2014
Roger S: I have this jacket with the red & white and I really liked the florescent demon logo. Dec 1, 2014
chad w: I liked the look, the amount of protection that it provides, the backflap, and the fact that it comes with a thermal liner for winter riding. Nov 30, 2014
Oscar R: Always wore Dainese clothing because of its quality and now upgrading from the Santa Monica to the Avro C2. Oct 3, 2014

Matthew P: I ride a 2013 Hayabusa 1300, Its a demanding bike and I'm on highway a lot of the time. I really need something that is going to be strong enough to carry me to safety if i fall. I also believe you get what you pay for. Dainese is known for quality so I went for the best. May 24, 2014
Samuel K: This is the most bad*ss looking jacket on earth right now, IMO. Plus it offers some of the highest grade protection and reasonable comfort for riding on the street. Semi-perforated leather with a removable windbreaking liner will permit year-round use in tropical climates like Florida, and 3-season use (need more layers for winter temps) just about anywhere else. Padded thorax area (one of the most common injuries in two-vehicle accidents) and plenty of room in back for spine protection. Apr 3, 2014
Paul V: I ride a Harley FLSTC. I researched jackets with protective armor and, though this jacket is very technical, it is so stylish yet highly protective. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to return this one and get a larger size. I'm a 42 and got the large, but it's way too tight. Mar 17, 2014
Mark R: I have owned Dainese leathers for over 15 years. The protection is top notch, and when it was time to buy a new suit only one brand came to mind. The fit and quality are unmatched, and the protection is amazing. Mar 16, 2014
Lee B: 1st bike, needed pants and top for track. Seemed like the best for the price. Ill find out when they show up. Mar 15, 2014
Brandon M: Style and Dainese's reputation. Feb 27, 2014
Brooks M: This jacket ticks all the boxes, safety, multi-season, quality, looks great and good price point. Jan 30, 2014
Tyler J: Styling, reputation of Dainese, and because it can connect to pants to take to the track. Oct 24, 2013
Bradley S: I like the quality and the style with all the safety features
It is a kind of every day rinding jacket with the removable liner

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mason T: Following Mendelian laws of inheritance, If you take an Avro C2 and crossbreed it with a Super Speed C2, your F1 offspring will all have speed humps, since the gene for humps is dominant.

Ok, silliness aside: there's no option for a speed hump. You could add one with your own handiwork but it would probably damage the jacket. I'd look to a super speed if you need a hump

sharleen b asked: I am 5'7" my check is 39". I was wondering what size should I get for a perfect fit as I will always be riding in hot weather as I live in the tropics and will have no use for the thermal liner. Should I get a 50 or a 48.? Jan 19, 2015

A shopper asked: I'm looking to match this with a sportster. Would the fit on this make it comfortable to wear on a cruiser/upright riding position? Would I have to size up and break it in? Jul 15, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Christopher B: I would be a little hesitant. I ride a Ducati Monster that is a little more upright than your true sport bike and it works well. My guess is that it would work due to the great fit you can get with this jacket. The jacket does allow for a great range of motion and has an ability to flex and move due to the use of stretch fabrics and technologies. From personally wearing I am thinking the concern would be with the shoulders and forearms feeling off due to the jacket's shoulder and forearm armor.

In the end I would be sure to work with RevZilla to completely understand the return and exchange policies and guidelines. If your proceed with a purchase I am sure you will instantly be able to say yes or no with the jacket on and simulating your riding position.

Austin R: Not sure about a sportster, but when I'm riding up right on my ninja it fits great! It does break in after a while but still keeps your arms a little bent. For size it fits tight. I normally ware a 52 and that what I ordered but is a little too tight for comfort with liner in. With the liner out and on the bike it is amazing though. Have found jacket is good for temp up to about 95*F after that its hot but does breath pretty well for what it is. Jul 15, 2014

Paul V: I have a softail, so I'm in an upright position and love this jacket. I bought one size larger. Regards break-in, I'm not sure that I noticed, though it probably did mold more to my body. It's an awesome jacket. Jul 15, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi I am looking to buy a protective leather jacket (for street commuting) but want the best protection. Just wondering, exactly what armour is under the shoulders and on the forearms (could someone please provide a link to the armour specs?).

Also, I have also been recommended the Alpinestar GP Pro Leather Jacket and am wondering how this compares to the Avro C2?

Thanks!

Paul V: CE level 2 rated armor...plastic, aluminum and compressive foam material. I copied the following from the msgroup website.

There are CE standards that cover each part of the body and each category of protective qualities associated with motorcyclist clothing. These include abrasion resistance, tear strength, impact protection, and seam strength. There are standards covering motorcyclist's suits, jackets, pants, and impact protectors("armor"), as well as gloves and footwear.

There are 2 standards that cover motorcyclist impact protectors. One for limb/joint pieces and the another for back protectors. Each provides various levels of performance based on energy absorption/force transmission.

The CE LIMB/JOINT PROTECTOR standard is labeled EN1621-1.

It allows joint/limb armor to transmit no more than 35kN of force.

Ratings are based on performance at an impact energy of 50, 75, or 100 joules creating three levels of performance within this standard.

LEVEL 1, BASIC--50 joules

LEVEL 2, HIGH PERFORMANCE--75 joules

LEVEL 3, EXTREME PERFROMANCE--100 joules

The CE BACK PROTECTOR standard is labeled EN1621-2. The test is performed with a 5kg "kerbstone" dropped from one meter to create the test impact energy of 50 Joules. The standard contains two levels of force transmission performance, using the same impact energy.

18kN@50J passes LEVEL 1 compliance.

9kN@50J passes LEVEL 2 or "high performance" compliance.

Some hard armor may protect against penetration or provide slightly better abrasion resistance than other forms, but penetration injuries are rare and can also be dealt with by soft outer layer materials. A hard object underneath an outer layer may also damage that outer layer in an impact or slide by reducing the surface area and increasing the pressure at contact points. Flexibility of softer components should also equate to greater comfort and better fit.

The Dainese Avro C2 is a fantastic jacket to wear, and stylish as well!

Paul V: All I know is that the Avro C2 is the best jacket I could ever have gotten. I'm a 42 but needed to get a 44 and break it in. Just get this jacket. It'll turn heads and protect you as well. Apr 14, 2014
Reply to Paul Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Alex B: This may be an over simplification, but I believe the armor spec is C2. Meaning that it meets the new European C2 safety standard. I have owned quiet an array of leather riding jackets and honestly have always been a little let down on quality considering the costs. I decided to jump up to Dianese after both my icon and alpinestars jackets failed to hold up to every day riding after a year or two. (Zippers and buttons failed, liners and armor pockets ripped, etc) I can say with certainty this jacket's build quality far exceeds those of the other two brands I mentioned (in my experience). Also, the fit and armor placement feels much more secure to me on this jacket. Optional back and or thorax protector slide right into the provided pockets if you want more protection. For me, it's worlds above the competition, safe as they come and looks damn good doing it.

Good luck in your research!

Daniel N asked: I see this jacket has a pocket for a back protector, is there a foam one that comes with the jacket and you can upgrade? Or is there no back protector at all from the factory? Feb 19, 2014

Graham S: No it doesnt come with a foam insert. Those do NOTHING anyway.

I dont know why other manufacturers put those into their jackets. Its misleading,

If the purchaser isnt properly educated they may think those offer at least some proper protection.

I bought a Dainese back protector.

Alex B: I've taken it into the 30's here in Portland and was surprised by how well it preformed. To go that low in the temperature range still requires a solid base layer, as the "fake abs" do flow more air than you'd expect. I pair it with the Dianese balaclava to keep the wind off the neck and a Nike Combat pro base layer and was plenty comfortable. Keep in mind, this jacket doesn't take kindly to water exposure and comes with a warning to that effect. So- cold: yes, cold and wet: no.

A shopper asked: Hi there, is this jacket windproof and used in 45-50 F cold weather ? because I saw some vent holes on this jackets chest. Apr 20, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Raymond M: The perforated leather in the front is a form of air venting which makes it great for when you remove the liner due to temperatures getting above 70-80F. However, the jacket comes with a removable interior liner that has made it so that I've used it comfortably down to single digits, after I got gloves that could make my hands not turn into icicles. If you don't want the liner in, you should have more than enough room to throw on a hoodie or something else on in the cooler temps. Apr 20, 2015

Robert W: I guess it might depend on your handlebars. But depends on what your comfortable feeling is ? A loose jacket or a tight jacket ? Go try this jacket on see how you like it sitting in chair holding your arms up like your bars are on your bike.( maybe on up one size if it feels restrictive and see that too.I have had lots of Dainese and all have been more of a great leather sweater than a leather jacket . Depends on what feels good to you.
Jacket wise their great , comfortable and protective.

Non-gauntlet gloves wouldn't cover the sleeves but probably line up with them fairly well. Dec 17, 2014

SIZING INSTRUCTIONS

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across 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.

Avro has been a strong seller. It's been a staple in the Dianese sport collection. I really look at the original Avro and now the new C2 as a three season leather, fully removable thermal liner, and it's not a really wide-range (inaudible), so you get a really good mix of spring, summer, fall seasonality. And then again, when it gets a little colder, you can stretch it further with that thermal lining. Now, from a positioning standpoint, certainly aggressive.  Five colors available, this is our black, white and fluoro red. Going to be a great top half of a two piece suit because it's technical enough, but then it also has enough of this style that you can rock it on the street.

You know, thinking one step further, let's talk a bit about sizing. You're going to see Tub to our left. He's going to be 135, five foot six, wearing a size 48. Now, for his sizing, he's about a 38 inch chest, he can kind of go either way. He hes a little bit more room in the size 48, but he could also pull up a 46 if he was going to rock it as a two piece suit and wanted a bit more of an aggressive shape to take to the track. Keep that in mind. Remember we ship for free. You can get in touch with our gear geeks, and as always, I love to hear gut reactions, your feedback, whether you're an old school Avro wearer or you're rocking the new C2, click here, subscribe to us at RevZilla TV, leave me your comments, questions or feedback.

Now, as we dive into some of the nitty gritty on the C2 version of the Avro, Avro C2 has a couple key upgrades. Remember, Europe changed that safety spec for the new CE rating. The C2 now has zipper covers, which are going to be done to add a degree of safety, and some of the stitching and internal guts in the way that it's constructed have been refined for this year. Again, to the naked eye, not a ton of changes, but enough changes to warrant a new name.

Now, we look at it, cowhide in it's exterior. You're going to see S1 panels down each arm for flexibility and airflow. Again, aggressive pre-shape here in the Dainese Avro C2 Leather Jacket. It's plenty of jacket to take to the track.  And if we look at the protection scheme, remember, CE rated Dianese composite protection, the shoulders, and the elbows and forearms, and shoulders are going to have the co-injected aluminum sliders which live on the outside and, again, add a degree of slide protection if you do happen to have a low side or go down on the track. Some of the other features, again, aggressive race Dianese logos down the front, double snap here at the top. It's meant to be low profile hand warmer pockets. Again, it's basic from that regard.

Again, get an idea of the profile as we come down the arm, lifting the arm, adjustment down here along the hips. And you can see how that stretch panel comes down from the shoulder blade, wraps underneath the arm and allows for a bit of flexibility, especially if you're in your tuck position. Remember, the jacket's going to be fine on the bike, off the bike, but this jacket loves to be in a tuck, moving at speed.

 Notice low profile. Again, additional S1 panel here up at the collar. It's going to not to interfere with your helmet if you're in the tuck, especially now with the new line of Dianese racing style helmets like the Corsa, that has that cut away. Again, just, it's going to come together really nicely.

There's no hump on this jacket. Now, hump's a personal preference thing. You know, from here you can step up to something like the Super Speed, which I believe does have a hump, and the racing would not have a hump. That would be the baby brother to this jacket. But again, clean and classic, relective demon logo on the back, Dianese across the seat. Notice it's a drop seat. It's going to have an integrated 360 degree zip to connect it with something like the Delta Pro Evo pants from Dianese. And again, you have other additional temper foam panels. Now, I will say there's no back protector here. You'd have to upgrade that separately with something like the Wave Pro, use a G2 size for men's jacket. And you have the ability to add that CE2 level of protection to the jacket.

Now, last but not least, let's look into the guts and remember, if you want a better per scheme, you can always go down to something that's a little bit less of an investment, something like the racing. There we go, see if we can get that undone. There you go. You see the thermal liner, which is easily removable, on the inside. And remember, YKK zippers. They're meant to hold up, they're built to last. And what I like about it is it's not a vest liner, it's actually going to be a full sleeve thermal. And on the inside of that you'll see the Dianese sanitized lining. I will note on both sides that this Avro C2 will take the Dianese thorax protection as well.
