Dainese D-Explorer Gore-Tex Jacket

Quite possibly one of the most versatile jackets Dainese has ever made, the D-Explorer Gore-Tex Jacket deservedly earns the 4 season badge. Massive multi-stage and fully closeable vents on the front and back of the jacket funnel fresh air directly to the body, while removable Gore-Tex and thermal liners keep Mother Nature at bay. An excellent choice for multi-season riding and adventure touring, the D-Explorer really is one jacket to rule them all.

Dainese D-Explorer Gore-Tex Jacket 5 5 2 2
Dainese Delivers Excellent fit, features, tons of airflow, but ability to be warm and dry as well. Versatility comes at a price, but if you want a do it all comfortable touring jacket, Dainese delivers. December 15, 2014
Awesome true 4 season touring jacket I received this jacket from Revzilla just in time to take it on a 600 mile overnight tour of the mountain passes from San Francisco to Bridgeport. The early morning start from the valleys had the jacket all zipped up without the gortex or the quilted liner and I was perfectly comfortable. Once we hit the central boiler room valley by mid day I opened up all the vents. Fronts, back, and the sleeves open! It was like the air conditioner came on. The cool breeze was felt flowing strongly through the jacket. It was just like wearing a total mesh jacket even with a hydration pack on my back. Plenty of pocket room for my camera, fastrak, phone, wallet, business cards, and a cool sleeve pocket for my gas card. I love all the adjustability with the double neck closure and the sleeve ties. The snap collar is a big improvement over last year's velcro. No more chafing when its open. This jacket is really a perfect combination of the last two years' models of seasonal touring jackets. Looks pretty darn sharp as well. The sleeves fit just a touch long but not too much of a gripe really. Very comfortable. A bit on the pricey side, but I am glad I went for it. I know I will be riding this gear for many years to come. September 17, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Mark Q: Revzilla's jacket of 2014, great reviews and great looking! Nov 30, 2014
Frederick R: Highly rated by RevZilla buyers, a top seller, which is a good indicator to me that it is a nice product. Also like the looks and the all-season features... I can't afford to buy multiple jackets in this price range! Nov 28, 2014
Diego B: Expensive yes, but it is a top quality jacket and totally functional no matter the weather.

If you can afford several top quality jackets for different seasons then by all means buy several jackets, but if you can afford only one to do everything, this is your choice.

(again $900 is not exactly "affordable").

Eric L asked: I own a Dainese Super Speed Perforated Leather Jacket, size 54. It fits comfortably snug and since it is for warm weather riding I only wear one layer underneath. I am very interested in purchasing the D-Explorer but would like to know if I should order a larger size since I typically wear extra layers or bulkier clothing (sweaters, & etc.) that would not fit under the Super Speed Jacket?

Diego B: I own a Dainese Super Speed Perforated Leather Jacket, size 54. It fits comfortably snug and since it is for warm weather riding I only wear one layer underneath. I am very interested in purchasing the D-Explorer but would like to know if I should order a larger size since I typically wear extra layers or bulkier clothing (sweaters, & etc.) that would not fit under the Super Speed Jacket?

Eric, I own both the D-Explorer jacket (I don't have the pants) and also Dainese Aero race suit. I got them both about 2 months ago and I can tell you can fully trust the size chart information of Dainese, at least for the D-Explorer jacket, it is true to size.
Just to let you know, my Dainese Aero race suit, for my dimensions, was suppose to be 52. But I decide to get a 54 because my plan is to use it with: a dainese manis back protector and also dainese norsorex vest, and turn out I was correct by going one size up, it feels very very snug I hope with leather the streching just a little bit more it will feel "comfortably snug" (I have use it only once so far). But if I take out everything (back protector and vest), it feels like it is one size bigger for me. Probably a 52 will be my size, but not enough room for all the protection I plan to wear, also my legs are a little bit bigger then my arms, so the lower part of my Aero suit 54 fits spot on to my legs.

Now in the specifics with the D-Explorer I do have a 52, just like Dainese charts suggest for my meassurements, and it is spot on. I use it with out all the liners (waterproof and thermal) and I love the versatility it gives for setting up how much airflow you can have in the venting system of this amazing jacket.

for references, my sizes are:
5'9''
185lbs
normal body with a little beer belly hehe
normal arms
fit legs (I do a lot of footbal/soccer).

Anthony J: I own the Ducati (Dainese) Corse perforated leather jacket size 52 which is snug. I too only wear a single layer under it. I have the D-Explorer in the same size (52) and it fits looser so you can fit additional layers. Today it was around 28F degrees when I rode into work, and I had a long sleeve under shirt and a mid-weight sweater over it (North Face). I had both the Gore-Tex and thermal liner in the jacket. The sweater sleeves bunched up a bit but not badly. I'm happy with the same size I normally wear. I think if I went bigger it may have felt a bit baggy. Dec 2, 2014

A shopper asked: does the waterproof liner have to be worn over the shell? Are there any jackets with similar ventilation that have a waterproof shell? Sep 24, 2014

Diego B: I had been looking a lot of videos for all types of jackets in revzilla TV channel (youtube). In my opinion there is no other jacket that offers the same ventilation than this one, unless you go with any mesh jacket.

But yes you can find mesh jackets that does have waterproof liner (it is put under the jacket, not the outside).

Paul S: With this jacket you can wear the thermal liner and the waterproof liner or just the waterproof liner, or just the thermal liner, or no liners. Both of these liners are worn inside the shell.There are several other jackets that unlike this jacket have the waterproof liner as part of the shell with a removable thermal liner. Having the waterproof liner as part of the shell will limit the amount of venting. This jacket is truly a 4 season jacket because you can remove all the liners and open up the vents to take full advantage of the cooling full open front and back in the summer. The outer shell is quick dry fabric and has waterproof pockets. If you are going to get a fully waterproof shell jacket you won't get the breathability for the summer months. Oct 7, 2014
