RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Daniel C: Love Dianese styling and quality Sep 23, 2014
ryan C: awesome... Jun 3, 2014
Benjamin G: Rossi! Jun 2, 2014
Nathan W: Great jacket option instead of leather. Jacket fit is tight on me (52), should have ordered the 54. I'm 5-11 @ 190 lbs (33/34 waist/32 inseam). Jacket 44Reg.

Only improvement would be a belt loop for the back, similar to Rev'It Airwave (also own).

Austin D: Style, versatility, brand quality and price. Jan 31, 2014
Hervey W: I needed a new jacket and having become a fair weather, more casual rider, I wanted a textile jacket rather than leather. I watched the video review, was impressed by the looks (yes, I have a Ducati) and am very happy with it. Jan 13, 2014
Cody B: Reasonable price with the closeout sale. Leather is hot for for Texas summers so I like the textile with removable liner. And it's probably the sickest looking jacket on the market. Dec 9, 2013
thomas n: Due to reviews and the videos and the ability to insert armor in the back and front. Oct 20, 2013
Charles H: It was a great deal and I needed a summer and fall jacket. My Dainese leather jacket was to hot this past summer. Sep 22, 2013
Joy T: Because it looked stealthy in all black and would assist in sneaking out for spontaneous hooping on the thruxton. Aug 31, 2013
Hien T: I needed a Spring/Fall jacket so I bought this jacket. Great style, great comfort at a reasonable price. Aug 18, 2013
Richard D: spring summer fall jacket Love the style Aug 16, 2013
Tom C: Understated style, Dainese brand, nice fit. Aug 14, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Quackuack: I believe that the CE rated elbow protectors in all Dainese jackets are the same. These protectos do provide quite a bit of forearm protection. Keep in mind many race style gloves go pretty far up the arm as well. Sep 27, 2011

Chadri: The armor that comes with the jacket will cover your elbow and part of your forearm. I would definitely not consider it "forearm protection", but there is some coverage. Jul 2, 2012

NineOhSevenRon: Yes. The elbow armor extends far into the forearm area. I've tested it with a high-side at 18mph and it worked very well.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
adalberto r: I'd say it's definitely windproof but you'll feel the cold around 50ish unless you got a hoodie or long sleeve underneath. I live in Arizona, so it's kept me dry in light to medium drizzles. I haven't ridden in more than that but it seems like it would hold up. Overall I love this jacket but keep in mind that any white in it will immediately get dirty. Aug 19, 2013

Nicholas F: It's double layered comes with a liner that is separable. It is wind proof and can vent air if the vents are opened in the back. Water resistant to a degree as it is textile I live in Florida and have no problem with it and rains here regularly lol it's my daily use jacket because its too hot for leather and humid Aug 19, 2013

gilberto r: Yea it is to a degree, it won't hold up to a hurricane but I feel it's more than enough for what you might expect to encounter on the road. I am very happy with my jacket ad it's one of the bet ones I had the pleasure of owning to date! Aug 20, 2013

A shopper asked: does the jacket come with a back protector, if not is there a pocket for the back armor? Feb 22, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chadri: No it does not come with the back protector. I bought the standard one from dainese for $29.99 and It was well worth it.

It fit perfectly into the jacket (being there is an existing pocket ready for the protector) and to be honest I usually never thing twice that it's there.

I'm assuming it is one of the better $30 investments I've made, but hopefully will never have to find out.

CharlesYY: I have a small follow up-

Does it fit "Shield G2" as well? I have Shield G2 back protector. I know this jacket fits Wave G2. But some Dainese pockets don't fit Shield cause the Shields are made a little bigger than the Wave.

RevZilla: @Charles:

The Dainese Avro Textile Jacket does not come with an upgraded back protector, however there is a compartment for one. Both the Wave G and the Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector will fit the Avro Jacket.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Quackuack: depends on your comfort level. Probably a Dainese size 50 would be for a sport fit (which is what dainese would probably recommend) or go 52 if you want to wear a long sleeve or micro fleece under the jacket. Sep 27, 2011
Reply to Quackuack Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
dastardize: I'm 5'9, 130 and I ordered the 50 (40 us) and it fits really well, but I had to bring in the waist. So i think this same size would fit you perfectly. Dec 11, 2011

A shopper asked: I live in upper state ny and the look of this jacket caught my eye. I'm looking at this and the turmac revi it but leaning to this because of price and the 3 season the video speaks about but i leave 5am where its 50 degrees and then when i ride back around 3pm its around 80 to upper 90s.

Chadri: I'm in the same boat! I touch upon this in my review, but to answer your question... My opinion is yes. With the liner and a thermal shirt, I would be comfortable riding with this jacket in 50-55 degree weather. But it might get too cold anything below 50, but I honestly haven't tried yet.

At 90 degrees with the vent zippers open, the liner out, and a tshirt underneath, this jacket gets a little warm, but nothing unbearable. Obviously it will be cooler when you're moving, but sitting at a light or heavy traffic will certainly make you sweat. I will trade a little bit of sweating to have the versatility.

Quackuack: Depends on what kind of person you are. For me I'd rather be hot than cold. that being said even in a non perf leather jacket with a base layer and a micro fleese underneath I'm still cold on the highways at 60 degrees ambient. Sure I'm sweating at 90 deg in the same jacket but it doesn't bother me nearly as much as the cold weather. I think a better 3 season temp rating on a jacket is really from 65 deg to 90 degrees. Anything colder I'd recommend a heated suite, anything warmer go fabric jacket. When you fluctuate temps that much layer up and even then you'll probably have to sacrifice comfort somewhere.

graykyle: I can't speak for it in cold weather, but I've been wearing it in high 80s to high 90s and it's been tolerable, especially if you do any highway riding.

I would imagine you could definitely warm things up if you put on a fleece below, or technical riding vest or sweater.

mtbwags: You can always layer with UnderArmor for the morning part of your commute. I went out yesterday as a passenger in 95 degrees. Because the driver blocks much of the wind I got a bit warm, but nothing to write home about. I really like this jacket and would recommend it. Jul 11, 2011

Matthew F: My advice is go for the bigger size even a 60 may be better. I am a U.S. 42 suit jacket size (5' 11'' Athletic Build) which translates roughly to a 52 european size which is what I bought.

robin h: I'm 5'8", 151 lbs. I'm wearing a Euro size 50. A Euro 48 was too short in the sleeves for me. Assuming you mean a Euro 44, it would probably be too small. A Euro 44 is equivalent to a US 34. With a 38 chest you are gonna need at least Euro 48. Oct 28, 2013

Stevan P: The Cordura® material will offer a very high level of abrasion resistance. Dainese is very particular in choosing the materials for their jackets and it speaks volumes to the quality of the Cordura® fabric and company that they have partnered to deliver a safe and stylish textile jacket.

NineOhSevenRon: I high-sided going under 20mph and managed to rip a hole in the shoulder of my Dainese Avro jacket. The rest of the jacket held up well, but I didn't slide very far (only a few feet) since my bike landed on my leg and stopped my skid. I hope this helps answer your question. May 9, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Quackuack: Check the manufactures sizing chart. I think you are comparing apples to oranges. Sure a US 42 chest size is a meduim, For Dainese though, I'll use myself as an example: US size 38 short jacket for a sport coat size translated to a Dainese size 48 motorcycle jacket. I'm 5'8" 140lbs with a broad shoulders ie swimmers build. Sep 30, 2011

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
robin h: Maybe not. I'm 5'9", 37.5" chest: I'm wearing a Euro 50. The sleeve lenght on my Avro (armpit to cuff) is about 24" The cuff should reach at least to your wrist bone. Also, the Avro seems to run a bit short at the hip, so you may need to try a 50.
Good luck...

A shopper asked: I just got this jacket in the mail and I'm considering returning it because all the white parts are paper thin and some of them are in high impact zones like shoulders and forearms. What denier # would you say this cordura is? Sep 23, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
AliB: Dainese does not provide specifications on denier, so we can not offer a number. It is a true Cordura fabric and will provide a good level of abrasion resistance. In addition, the number associated with denier never tells the whole story when it comes to abrasion resistance, it only refers to the linear mass density of fibers.
White fabric that is not backed with a heavy PU coating can have some transparency, but that is not necessarily an indication on how it will perform in a crash. In addition, the flexibility of the fabric and snug fit mean the armor in the shoulders and elbows are much more likely to stay in place in the event of a crash.

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.

  • 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.
