RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Alex W: 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. Mar 1, 2014
Eduardo P: Cool leather jacket, excelent price Dec 6, 2013
Alwyn B: I liked this style more than the new Laguna EVO. I would feel more comfortable walking around in this casually. Dec 1, 2013
Jarrett K: Thick leather sleeves too short but nice slim fit Aug 11, 2013

Aaron D: 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.

Juan Francisco F: Hi

In my case I was 101.5 cm chest , between 50 and 52, and choosed 50. After some time I think It could be better for me 52 due the shape of the jacket and weight changes due food and fitness (Not big changes , I am still thin =) ) . Later I bought an 52 dainese Air jacket and i feel very confortable. In your case I would try 54.

Michael G: I'm 5'11" and 180# and am comfortable in a 52. At 6'2" I'd think you'd find the length in the arms and torso a bit short in 52 and the waist and chest OK. I'd recommend 54. Sep 6, 2013

Renzo P asked: 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. Mar 19, 2014

"" ": 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.

Gervais H: Besides the slightly more flashy look of the Airfast, it is also perforated where the Cage is not. I own the Cage and like it a lot. I've only ridden in about 70 degree temps with it which it was very comfortable. I would say once you start getting around 75-80 degrees it would start getting hot. I have the Air frame as my spring- summer jacket and the Cage as my fall-winter living in South Carolina. It all depends in what temps your riding. For me the Cage is comfortable from 50-75 if you wear a layer underneath when it's colder. My best guess is the perforation would buy you another 5 degrees or so above that 75-80 mark but because of the air flow would not be great when it gets down in the 50s. If you want something a little more veristile, look at the Laguna EVO that comes in perforated and non perf and also has a removable thermal liner. The bubble liner works great in the cage jacket but with the perforation in the Airfast the wind will bite hard in cooler temps without a thermal liner acting as a wind breaker Mar 19, 2014

Jan R: I cant speak on the Airfast jacket however the Cage is a awesome jacket by Dainese. Comfortable, stylish with lots of protection. This one is great for spring summer and fall. Its not too warm and doesnt have insulation. In really hot days you may get a little warm if stuck in the city but I think any leather jacket will do that. Mar 19, 2014

A shopper asked: 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.

RevZilla: 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.

Nic L: 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!

A shopper asked: 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).

A shopper asked: 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. Feb 14, 2012

CobaltGS: 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. Feb 15, 2012

RevZilla: Although this jacket isn't a serious track jacket, it could be worn at the track as long as it is zipped to a pair of track pants. If you only do one or two track days a year, but mostly ride on the street, this would be a good choice for you. Keep in mind that track use will most likely stipulate a back protector to be used with this jacket. Below are a couple that would work well with this jacket. May 2, 2012

A shopper asked: What type of weather would suit this jacket ? As I am thinking either to get the Dainese Cage Leather Jackett or the Alpinestars GP-R leather jacket. Which one is better from a safety perspective? I would also want a leather jacket that I can use for all seasons from summer right through to winter.
Thanks !

Ironrider: Dainese Cage is only good for cold weather. It's safety features are good for casual rides or daily commutes. Feb 6, 2012
Reply to Ironrider Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Chris K: From a protection standpoint, the GP-R wins due to the external hard parts, however, I think that the Dainese Cage is more versatile for changing weather conditions. The 3D-Bubble liner on the Dainese Jacket allows the jacket to breathe in warmer weather, but still keeps a layer of insulation in the colder weather.

With that said, it will definitely be difficult to find a leather jacket that truly accommodates all four seasons. Textile jackets tend to be much more flexible and offer more liner options for changing weather conditions.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Fit wise it'll be like any other Dainese Jacket. It's supposed to be snug. But compared to something like the Dainese Racing, the Cage has a slightly less aggressive precurve. The Racing is meant for a sportbike (even though I ride it on my Scrambler). The Cage is for a naked bike - just a slightly more upright riding position. Not a huge, game changing difference - but it's there. May 31, 2013

  • 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.

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.
