Dainese Greyhound Leather Jacket
Best leather jacket I ever had
This jacket is a true masterpiece. As always Dainese created great product with a lot of features and very stylish at the same time. The jacket has great protection, the leather is very durable and look and feel I think the best out there (thanks to Dainese again). Thermal liner is also a very nice feature which makes it even more attractive because you can wear this on much colder temperatures with the same comfort. At the same time the jacket is very stylish, and I regularly wear it just for a walk. It takes no time to remove protection. I get a lot of compliments for the look since this is an "italian cut".
I'm very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend this product; you will not regret.

Style and Protection
I wanted a jacket for the cooler, colder weather that was stylish and functional which looked good on and off the bike, this is it.
I am not easy to fit so many other jackets did not work for me.
Fit: I am 5' 8" 185 lbs, 44 1/2 chest 37 waist and size 54 fits me right on. I was surprised how well the sleeves fit too. The jacket with the liner in is perfect, without the liner it is a tad lose. Since this is for cooler and cold weather that's a good thing since you will want room for layers.
This coat has perforations in the front of the sleeves and under the arms and to the back.. You can wear this say up to 80 deg.s no problem.. The liner is really nice and will take care for the cooler temps.
Style: The collar at first I was not sure about but I can say its very cool and functional. The leather is very soft and you can roll the collar down and partially zip it up or go all the way when it gets cooler. I like it!
I was thinking about a RSD Ronin or a Barfly which I tried and it was nice but this jacket blows them out of the water.
The leather is different then other coats I have seen and it drips of quality.
I don't understand why it's going on close out other than its not cheap but at this price its well worth the price of admission to Dainese.

Love this jacket
I'm 5'10" & 185lbs and bought the size 54. It fits fine and I paired it with a G2 in the back as well. The arms were a little bit more form fitting than the only other Dainese jacket I've got (a textile) but not to any negative degree.
The liner is awesome and really keeps the heat in during the colder rides and is super comfortable as well. I've only worn is once on a warm day and it was fine but I got a little warm after a while so Phx in the summer probably will not see this jacket used too much, but that's why I got a Dainese textile/mesh jacket anyway. The armor is right as it always seems to be with Dainese dear and there's no change here, solid feel all the way around and in the right places.
The jacket also looks awesome IMO with regards to its cut/shape and the feel of the leather etc. I love the small Dainese logo's on the shoulders. Very understated and very cool.
It's not cheap but it's a very solid jacket in all respects. It's looks great, feels great, fits well even with the G2 in it too and with the thermal liner in it's really nicely warm. I recommend it highly. Dainese makes good stuff and this is classic Dainese.

Great fit (after break in). Incredible style. Features galore!
This is by far one of the best jackets I have put on. When it arrived, it felt a little small, but after wearing it for a week, it fits perfectly now. The leather is as soft as you would expect from a quality product. The inner liner is great at keeping you warm in cooler temperatures.
I wish the elbow armor was removable as well so it's a little less awkward wearing it socially, but no one really notices, so I guess it's just me.
I can't really comment on durability as I haven't owned this jacket for long.
Lots of compliments about this jacket.
It's on the pricier side, but worth every penny so far.

This jacket seems overpriced. Yet compared to really good motorcycle jackets that perform well and look great, this one stands out in the crowd! It is beautiful. With the liner it is a bit tight, but it is comfortably warm. The high collar even helps when there is cold temperature to contend with. I have even taken the liner and armour out and have worn it out on the town!

Stylish and comfortable
I agree with all the good things already mentioned about this jacket so I'll just mention a couple of things specific to me.
The sizing was good: I'm wearing a size 50 (10 up from jacket size) fits nicely, even with the small Forcefield back protector in place.
Air flow through the elbows and shoulders helps keep sweating down to a minimum when riding, even in 90+ degree heat: keep the cuffs open and you get additional air flow.
I have one disappointment with the jacket: The stitching of the zipper on the jacket-trouser fastening system started to come loose after only a week of wearing. Given its purpose and the price point of the jacket I expected a lot better.

I wanted a protective jacket that looks good and the Dainese Greyhound doesn't disappoint. The leather is as soft and shiny as advertised. It's definitely a stealthy jacket for the street - the branding is kept to a minimum, although I'd prefer absolutely no branding.
The jacket fits just right - I'm 6'1, 195 size 54. I couldn't imagine wearing more than a t-shirt under the jacket with the liner zipped in. It keeps the heat in fairly well.
The price is a bit more than what I'd would've liked to have paid, but once I put the jacket on, the price didn't seem to matter that much.
Overall, the Dainese Greyhound is a stylish jacket, great on and off the bike, a bit pricey, but well worth it.
