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).Apr 24, 2014
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 styleAug 16, 2013
Tom C: Understated style, Dainese brand, nice fit.Aug 14, 2013
A shopper asked:For the protectors, is there a forearm protector as well?Sep 26, 2011
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
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
joe s:This jacket is not wind or waterproof. The shell is thin, light, flexible, breaths very well and with the liner is a good spring, summer and fall jacket; but is not technically wind or waterproof.Aug 22, 2013
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.Oct 1, 2012
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
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.Jun 24, 2011
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.Jul 2, 2012
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.Sep 30, 2011
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. It fits but is extremely snug and I am not very mobile in it. I really can not even wear the jacket with the liner. Remember you can always return.Feb 4, 2014
freddy c:I KNOW WHAT THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE.. BUT THE WHITE GETS SO EASILY DIRTY...I GOT TIRED OF HAND WASHING... WASHING MACHINE IN DELICATE CYCLE WORKS WONDERS FOR ME. SORRY..THEN I DRIP DRY ON HANGER...IF THIS JACKET CANT HOLD UP IN A WASHING MACHINE, HOW WOULD IT DO IN A CRASH? JUST SAYING. NO MORE HAND WASHING FOR ME!!!Aug 21, 2013
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¬Æ 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¬Æ fabric and company that they have partnered to deliver a safe and stylish textile jacket.Jun 21, 2011
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
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
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...Dec 7, 2013
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
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.Oct 7, 2011
