Dainese Cage Leather Jacket

Designed for those in search of a technical article and a sports look with a careful eye on price, the Dainese Cage Leather Jacket offers both elevated protection and ergonomics in the finest Dainese tradition and may be seen as an entry level model thanks to its excellent quality/price ratio. Provided with homologated protectors and back protector/Thorax chest protector pockets, excellent comfort is ensured in the Dainese Cage by the adjustment of collar and side volumes, inserts in Cordura Comfort elasticated fabric, the jacket-pants fastening zip, the 3D Bubble liner and a looser fit than the jackets used more for racing.

Features

  • Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard
  • Tutu Cowhide leather
  • Cordura Comfort fabric
  • Inserts in elasticated fabric
  • Adjustments strap on neck
  • Waist adjustment
  • Jacket-trousers fastening system
  • Fixed 3D-Bubble liner air spaces
  • Sanitized lining
  • Pocket for Wave G1 and G2 back protector
  • Pocket for thorax chest protector
  • Reflective inserts
  • 3 outer pockets
  • 2 internal pockets

Denoted as the "Dainese G. Cage Pelle" in Dainese's Catalog

Note: The video for this product incorrectly states that there is perforated leather along the arms on this jacket.  In actuality, while it has a perforated look, it is not punched all the way through and will not ventilate in those areas.  Primary ventilation will come through the stretch panels.

Beautiful Leather Jacket
I got this jacket as my first leather jacket and was weary of the sizing, I was an in between size between a 44 & 46 so I decided to get the 44. luckily I did, the jacket fits perfectly and looks amazing, after witnessing my mate come off his bike I will definitely be getting the wave back protector & be searching for the Zip in pants to match the jacket

The jacket may be a tad short but from what I read it is supposed to be short.

Very good fit and feel. Awesome protection.
I love this jacket! The leather is high quality, thick and soft to the touch. After a week or so of commutes to work and back (about 20 miles), I felt like it had become like an extra skin. The jacket literally "learned" my body shape. Amazing!

The armor is top notch and I feel secure and well protected at all times. Since this is the first armored jacket I've owned it took me a short time to get used to the feel of it. At this point, I'm completely comfortable wearing the jacket and thankful that I chose one with such great protection.

I'm 5' 8", 140 lbs. I run and work out regularly so I've got a fairly thin build. I selected a size 48. When I first got the jacket, I was only mildly concerned about its fit being possibly a bit snug. However, after wearing it now for about five hundred miles on the bike (Ducati Monster 796), I'm so glad I took the advice of the guys at RevZilla when I placed my order. The size 48 is perfect.

I live in Kansas where we get dramatic temperature extremes and especially hot summers. July and August are frequently pushing 100 degrees or more every day. May and June give us a taste of what's to come and I've ridden in 90+ degrees with no concerns about comfort due to overheating at all. I may opt to purchase another textile or mesh jacket when the real heat gets here but we'll see.

I'm looking at the Pony C-2 pants as a companion to complete the "suit". If they are anything like the jacket as far as quality of materials and fit, feel and functionality, it'll be an easy choice.

Purchasing a garment of this level of quality and price was a first for me and I'm very thankful for the staff at RevZilla. These guys know their stuff and answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns up front. Anthony's videos are extremely helpful to newbs like myself. Keep 'em comin', buddy!

Thanks!

Stylish Leather Jacket
Love this jacket - great compliment to my textile/mesh jackets. It does not breathe well so I can see being hot in the middle of summer in this jacket. That said, in the cold it does great.

The shoulder pads are probably my biggest con. The velcro attachment isn't the greatest... but it works.

I'm 6'1, ~200 lbs, 44 inch chest - I got a 56. Works well for me because I can layer on some clothes underneath when the temps really drop. From a fit perspective I wish the jacket was a bit longer since I'm on the taller side - but the fitment is still pretty good. I currently ride a Duc multistrada so a little long lengthy for that riding position would be good

Low Price, High Style
For the pricepoint the jacket looks great from Dainese. Like Anthony said, Armani meets motorcycle armor. I bought the Black/White/Red version and I could probably take the armor out and wear this as a regular leather jacket off the bike and I wouldn't look too "I own a motorcycle" ish. the leather smells amazing fresh out of the box.

i plan to buy the Forcefield Backprotector and a Level 2 chest protector to armor up on the jacket. Might be more expensive, but surgery costs are much more expensive.

The jacket is a bit stiff but i'm sure this will be fixed with time .

The only problem I have with this jacket is that the white panel would seem to get dirty real fast. But i'm nitpicking; i'm sure a quick google search on how to clean white leather will fix this. Also, i wished the red and white panels were switched but again, nitpicking

TL/DR:

PROS: stylish and subtle styling: "DAINESE" isn't printed everywhere. Dainese armor covers shoulders, and elbows and covers 2/3rds of my forearm, 3D bubble liner is great feature for the price of the jacket. the leather will definitely help with abrasion resistance

CONS: white panel would seem like it would get dirty, may not breathe as well (or at all) in hot 85+ weather, sitting down bunches up the jacket a bit. i wish the red and white panels were switched.

I believe this is the value (cheaper) but it wears like a high end jacket.
Fit and articulation is great. The collar height is perfect. I wear it with a back guard and that's comfortable. The body length is long for this sporty style of jacket but still not quite as long as I had wished for me. I rectified that by taking out the shoulder pads and it now it rides lower and fits perfectly just slightly covering my belt if worn with jeans.

I got the all black version and I don't mind the branding on the collar. the alternate color panels seemed a bit much and I'm more traditional

I bought this for the track and it zips well with my dainese pants. I'm not a trackday junkie so i didn't go for a full suit.

The leather is really nice but it doesn't seem to be quite as nice as the really expensive dainese jackets. I don't know all of the terms for leather but I believe this is what they call corrected grain where it's stamped with the pebbled pattern rather than being totally smooth.

The fabric panels are nice for airflow but i wish it was full leather around the belt area as it looks a bit wierd to me to have the fabric run down to the bottom.

Interior pockets are great and the honeycomb interior is fantastic.

Dainese style & protection at a reasonable price.
File this under "you don't know what you're missing until you have it." I've had a few lower level jackets before that I liked well enough but of course liked some of the more expensive ones for their fit & finish. Fast forward to today and I could never go back to anything other than something equivalent to this jacket.

First the vanity. I call this the push up bra of jackets. I've probably had 6-7 girls make positive comments about my appearance when I've had this jacket on. Never happened with any other jacket. Now I'm in decent shape, but this jacket makes me look like I spend far more time in the gym than I do. If you look good, you feel good.

Then the functionality. I ride naked bikes, so lots of wind. No loose, flapping material here. No weird wind buffeting from the jacket.

That also means the armor is where it should be and doesn't move. The armor is also well proportioned and feels like it would do something when that time inevitably comes.

I added the G2 back protector and after a handful of rides, I don't even know it's there. Not very noticeable visually and I can move around perfectly comfortable.

This jacket is pretty toasty if it's above 85 and you're in traffic, that's really the only downside. I've worn it in 90* and above, and while definitely warm, it's not too bad if you're moving.

Even though this is one of the lower price point models, I really prefer it over the majority of the line as it is the perfect mix for me of subtlety and style while avoiding the power ranger look.

Excellent jacket
I bought this jacket because I want to get away from textile and back to leather. I ride in all seasons in the Northwest, which really means fall/spring and winter because that's about all we have here! Airflow is not a big concern, but this jacket flows well enough through the textile patches under the arms and on the sides. I wear a cheap Costco rain jacket/wind breaker when it rains. I am 5'10" and about 192#. I measure 44 around the chest. I bought a 56 because I want to put a sweater or other liner under during the winter. It fits loose (as expected). A 54 would have been perfect, otherwise. The fit is pretty accurate. The leather is top quality and the workmanship is very nice. The liner does not come out, so that's the reason I over-sized. The leather is light, though not thin or cheap. There is plenty of protection in the elbows and shoulders. You can add more for the back and chest, if that's what you want. It looks great and feels great. I am very happy with this purchase. It's a great jacket at a great price. (Black/white/blue is impossible to find in my size, by the way. It's a discontinued color, according to sites I found.)

Makes you look PIMP
So first of all, I am 5 feet 7.5 inches and I weigh 160 athletic build with a 40" chest and a 31" waist and I ordered the size 50. This is my first leather jacket.
It is usually hard for me to find clothing items that fit good at the chest without being huge at the stomach, which seems to be a result of the trend of chubby people. I expected the Dainese jacket to be like that but I was wrong.
When I put on the jacket, I noticed that It was really stiff, I then proceeded to look in the mirror, that's when I realized that I made the right choice and that the $429 dollars were well spent. On my 5'7.5" 160lbs frame, the jacket looked perfect, snug at the shoulders and relatively snug at the waist. I can only put about 2 or 3 fingers in between the jacket and my waist when the jacket is zipped up.
The stiffness of the leather went away after only a few rides on my motorcycle so it is actually very comfortable.
The reason I bought this jacket was because I wanted a quality jacket that I could use when I rode my motorcycle to school without being too "I ride a motorcycle" loud. This jacket is perfect for what I wanted for, it looks SHARP. Especially with a nice pair of black shades(if you choose not to wear a helmet),some dark jeans, and the Alpinestar Fastlane shoes(black). The stares are always there.
So far I've worn this in 58-85 degree weather. You still need to wear something underneath that's warm because if you ride a sportsbike like me(2005 R1 Raven) some of the cold air will go in through the collar, especially if you don't wear a helmet. In the 85 heat I was in stop and go traffic maybe about 8 traffic lights, I started to get a little warm but once I hit the expressway the problem was solved, so if you are going to be in stop n go traffic for more than 10 or 15 minutes in temperatures above 85 or 90degrees Farenheit, I would not recommend this jacket.
Thr only thing so far that I have found I sometimes don't like from this jacket is that the zipper sometimes gets stuck when I'm pulling it down, usually I just pull it up and back down and that fixes the problem but sometimes is takes a few tries but this has happened to me 3 times out of the 20 or so times that I've put it on and off since I've had this jacket for about a week so far.
The second time I wore this jacket I got caught in some mild rain for about 5 minutes and when I got home I just dried it and put it back on the hanger, the jacket didn't deform or shrink or anything with that light rain.
Overall this is a great jacket that isn't just protective but will also serve as a stylish piece of clothing that everyone will know you paid big bucks for and when you get off the bike you still look casual with style. I would definitely recommend this jacket if you value style and comfort(after it's broken in.)

Top class looks and good protection
I had been looking for a solid leather jacket for cool weather and this jacket is it. The bubble liner really helps to regulate the temperature. As others have said it doesn't have very good air flow, but for me, since I do most of my riding at night it is perfect for the cooler temperatures (55 and up (this is San Diego I'm talking about)). Also, for the warmer weather so long as you're moving above 30mph, the combination of the bubble liner and air flow through the cloth material you'll be comfortable at temperatures below 80.

The only gripe I have is that the shoulder pads are velcroed in place and they sometimes move around when I put on the jacket.

You can't beat the quality of the leather and build of a Dainese jacket, but it does come with a Dainese price. Worth it? Yes.

High Quality, Stylish, Slimmer Fit Jacket
I'm very happy with this jacket. It is definitely very high quality, nice leather, solid stitching, comfortable cut and fit. Seems very durable. It's a bit stiff at first but quickly wears in to be more comfortable. The fit is fairly slim, which I like a lot as it feels nice and tight and around my body. I ordered my regular size in chest circumference (46 in) and it fits me like a glove. If you're bigger around the midsection I imagine that this jacket would not fit so well.

I got this jacket for colder weather riding and am very happy with this decision. I wanted something that would protect from cold winds, which this jacket does as it's non-perforated leather. For extremer colds (less than 50 or 40F) it still works perfectly when I wear a thin neoprene-like bicycle jacket layer underneath. Only thing is some cold wind will come in through the neck, but nothing a scarf or baklava can't fix.

my dads riding jacket from the 80's was falling apart and i needed something that would hopefully last another 35 years, its a clean black look, not too flashy, and hopefully will be practical for use in canada in spring, summer, and fall. i like the bubble liner feature, i just hope it works the way revzilla says it does! im 5'8, 130 pounds, 57 sleeve, 94 chest. and i ordered the 46. i hope it fits with g2 protector.

This jacket will get you noticed. Everywhere you walk in people will turn their heads. It will also keep you warm from early spring to winter. Throw in a Colombia jacket underneath when it gets really chilly, and this jacket will keep all the air out. I pair it with a Colombia heat gear and Alpinestar Polar Vortex Gloves at 45 degree weather and its comfortable for 15-20 minute commutes. I think it would stay comfortable for a longer duration if need be.

This is my first leather jacket. I wanted something that would be able to handle the cooler temps in arizona (40-50 degrees F), but also be capable of stretching into the mid to high 90s. It also looks very sleek and simplistic while remaining technical.

I'm interested in this Jacket but I've got a pretty odd build.

Short 5ft 5"
Chest Roughly 96 cm or 38"
Waist size 88 cm or 35"

Everything points out to a 48 Euro or 38 USA sizing, is it possible to squeeze into a 46/36 or should I stick with 48/38 and add extra protections on the inside?

Thanks
A shopper on Sep 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would stick with the 48/38... I am only 5ft3in and it is perfect with a little room. You will want a little room if you ride and want to add clothing for cold weather or if you ride aggressively and want to add armor that will fit in the compartments of the jacket. I am adding armor to my jacket and will have room to move... The jacket is beautiful and great quality.. I love mine.
Is the waist zipper compatible with other brands of pants? Specifically the AGV line.
A shopper on Oct 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not sure if the dainese jacket zipper is compatible with AGV line but if it is the same style/type zipper which is in most cases would be based on a industry standard then it would work. good luck!!
I'm 6'2 and 180lbs 42" chest should I go with a 52 or 54? Being tall I am considering sizing up for the extra length.
A shopper on Aug 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6' and 170lbs... I wear this jacket in a 50, and it is just a smidge big ( I hesitate to even use the word big, it's that close) however, the next size down would likely be too small. I'd suggest going with the 52 and if it is too snug return/exchange it for the 54. Revzilla has a great 1 free size exchange shipping policy so I'd use it. Hope that helps. Great jacket BTW.
I'm wondering on the right size. I am 5 ft 7 inches tall (short :D), but my chest is 42" (flat abs), so I don't know which size should i choose. Unfourtunetly I can't try it on anywhere. Any tips, guys? Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Hey mate, just to give you a comparison, i have a 42" chest as well at 6 foot tall. I have a size 50. It has enough room to wear a sweatshirt underneath on cold days. If you have a tall body but short legs, it shouldn't give you much problem, it reaches my belt line.

Don't forget revzilla has free exchange if the size doesn't fit.
What would be the main differences between the Cage jacket and the Airfast? Which one will win in a side to side comparison ? This is my first leather jacket, just a got a Ducati Monster and I like something not to of a racing look. I live in NYC, so also which one will be the best for spring/summer and fall.

BEST ANSWER: I just bought the cage. So far I only been able to wear it on 40-50 degree days and I don't have any complaints temperature wise. I drive a Ducati 848evo and a Harley fat bob and it's comfortable on both. I did buy one size bigger than what was recommended on the site. Had a low side about 2 yrs ago that left 4 plates in my shoulder so I do like the beefed up armor inside this jacket. Don't know to much about the other jacket but I hope this was helpful.
I'm 5'8, 150lbs, slim/athletic build with chest size of 37 inches, waist 29. I don't want to look too big/bulky in this jacket but I'm also planning on getting the back protector. I want it to be snug.
As a comparison, I bought the Alpinestars Mert Leather jacket size 46 and it looks really large/bulky on me.
A shopper on Mar 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: With a 37" chest, you should be a fairly snug fit in a size 46 for the Cage jacket, especially with the back protector.
A size 44 would most likely be too small, even more so with the back protector.
hello everyone,

i am 5'11 and around 175lbs Athletic build, should i go with a 52 size? my suit size is around a 40. or would a 54 be too big?

what would you guys recommend?

thanks!

BEST ANSWER: I am about 6'2 and 190 with an athletic build and I bought the 52. It fits me but is a little tight in the shoulders, so depending on how broad your shoulders are it could be a little tight. The fit in the torso area of the jacket is just fine for me without being too too tight and I feel like if I had gone with a 54 it would have been a little too poochy while actually on the bike. Also keep in mind that as the jacket wears over the years it should loosen up a bit as the leather wears. Overall I'm very happy with the jacket and wear it mostly in the spring and fall, and in winter with a light sweatshirt. Summer I use the Dianese Air jacket to breathe a bit more.

Hope that helped!

I've got the Air Frame in size 50 and it's ok for me, maybe just a little short on the torso (but I dont mind, I'm on the tall but kinda skinny side). I was wondering if this jacket will fit me well in the same size (50)? I've also tried on the Frazer leather and it was comfortable on size 50.

BEST ANSWER: 6' 1" 220 longish arms....56 was breaking in while it was cool out, but still snug....Ive moved to a mesh type until the fall.....kinda wished i had bought a 58, but the 56 is working...hope that helps.
i"m 5 11inc 145 pound but my arms are longer than average, which size to buy 48 or 50 ?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 50 for certain.
I'm looking for a jacket that doesn't go overkill with racing looks, yet is capable of taking to the track with adequate protection. Does this jacket work for such a scenario? I don't want to buy a track jacket and a street jacket, I'd just like to have one that can do both well.
A shopper on Feb 14, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you could were this jacket at the track - it is leather and has protection in all the right places (assuming you wear the protection!). Do yourself a favor and take advantage of the zipper at the back of the jacket - take the jacket to a tailor and get the bottom half of the zipper sewn to the pants. Have the tailor come out to your bike so he/she can see how the zipper needs to function when you are on bike in your riding position. You'll get better protection out of both your jacket and pants if they can function as an integrated unit.

The cage jacket is the replacement for Laguna Seca jacket. The Laguna Seca jacket was Dianese's entry-level, mid-price point jacket for years. When you talk about Dianese and talk about entry level, you're still looking $400-$500. This guy is going to be $429.

What you're getting is Italian leather. You're getting Armani meets motorcycle gear, and that's in the form of Dianese. They put a lot of time, a lot of effort in both RND, as well as technical and design development of these garments. Notice there's a lot of panels here. It's still a very classically styled jacket, but there's multiple panels allowed to be ergonomic, articulated. It's going to feel just as good standing up as it does in a crouched or tucked position, for spirited sport riding.

Now, this is the black/white version. Notice that we have white panels under the side. I'm going to show you them in a second. There is an all-black version. There's five colors of this guy: black/gray, black/white, black/red, all-black, and I believe black/blue that are available in the States.

Now, turn to the side for me, Joey. So we have reflective here. We have reflective paneling here. We have an embossed Dianese logo, which is something they do in stitching. It looks really, really good. Notice if Joe puts his arm up here, you're going to see some of the white that's built in. Again, this is not the all-black version. This is the black/white.

What I want to show you is two key differences between this jacket and the previous Laguna Seca. You're going to have S-1 stretch panels that flow air, as well as allow you to move and allow for different body shapes and builds that are going to be under the arm. Joe is about 170, 175. He's five-foot-10. He's wearing a 52. It's kind of an in-between size. He could go 50, but it might be a little tighter up top. He goes 52. He has a little more room in the arms, but it fits him well in the chassis. It all depends on how you want this to fit and the type of riding you're going to do.

Remember, we do free exchanges if you decide that you . . . Spinning before I asked you. Look at this guy. He's still going around here. So basically bringing it back to the front . . . Thanks, Joe. We have double-snap up here. It's adjustable. Red Dianese with the white logo. You have a single pocket here. You have your . . . I'm calling this micro-perf because it's the smallest perforation scheme, as far as the diameter of the holes that we've seen. It goes up the inside. So in hotter weather riding, you are going to get some air flow through the perf, as well as the S-1 panels that are underneath the arms.

You'll also notice for abrasion resistance and durability, they've added comfort cordura here in this bottom panel. So in all the color ways, you're going to have a black cordura panel, which actually makes the jacket more breathable, more lightweight. It's going to breathe a little bit better. It's going to do a nice job in that warmer riding condition.

Now I want you to turn around backwards. There you go. So checking out the back of the Dainese Cage Leather Jacket, it's got a little bit longer seat. It's got the fully embossed Dianese demon logo that has temperfoam under it. Again, it's just one of those detail style factors. At $429, you're not going to find many jackets that have the level of thought and detail, at a high-end Italian leather side of things that this jacket does.

So now that I got the jacket, the cage, off of Joe. I want to show some of the nuances. I want to show how the sleeves work. So you have a single zipper with a Dianese button snap. Moving it to the inside, you're going to notice one really key difference that's a huge upgrade that you don't see at the Dianese entry-level price point: 3D bubble liner. This is on all the Dianese high-end racing jackets.

What does a 3D bubble liner do? It allows you to be comfortable in more extreme riding temperatures. So when it gets cool, these bubbles are going to trap air, which is an insulating layer between the little pockets, your body, and the outside of the coat. What that does is it retains heat. Here's the beauty of the bubble liner. When it gets warm, and your body is warmer than the outside air, these pockets of air are going to help pull heat off of your body and trap them, and it's going to allow you to basically create a micro climate within the coat. It's going to be antimicrobial and absorbent. It's going to wick sweat and allow you to stay cooler.

So by having these air pockets, you have evaporative cooling that will go on, rather than having the sweat stick to your body and keep you cool and clammy . . . or warm and clammy rather, which is never a happy time.

Notice it's on the areas where you're going to sweat the most. It goes all down the back, and it wraps around to the shoulders. You have the sanitized lining, which is basically a nylon mesh lining that goes on the inside. 360 degree zipper connection zip with a stretch panel that will connect the Dianese pants. You're also going to have some pockets. You have a chest pocket. You have a safety pocket right here. Actually this is the pocket for the thorax. So you can go that way with this jacket. Just some really nice nuances that do really well, as far as being upgrades on an entry-level jacket.

The last thing I'm going to talk about is armor. It's all CE-rated. The pocket in the back is for a wave, G1 or G2 that we sell here at RevZilla. Then this is going to be the left shoulder armor. Notice it's CE-rated. It comes on a big foam pad, and that foam pad is going to be ergonomic to fit your body, and then the velcro goes in just like that to cup to your shoulder. It's fully removable in the shoulders. It's also fully removable and a little bit longer to be forearm, as well as elbow armor in the sleeves.

Once again, five colors. This is the cage, $429, new for 2010 from Dianese. This is the classic entry-level Dianese example, the mid-price point that competes or basically replaces the Laguna Seca, which had such a great shelf life. It was a timeless jacket they did forever. They said, "We need to spruce it up. We need to make a change." For 2010, it's going to be the cage.
