Dainese Manis Jacket 5 5 2 2
Better than the W/T Pro The Manis jacket is easier to put on and remove thanks to its integrated thorax protector pads. I am 5"8', 158lbs and chose the size S over the M because I like a tight fit, particularly for the elbow and shoulder areas. I like the fact that I can slip the straps off my shoulder, undo the kidney belt velcro and be able to pull the back protector right off. The W/T Pro will require unzipping the 2 attachments at the back before it will come off, so the Manis is easier to use. I ride with my Kriega R25 most of the time, and found I do not need to attach the back protector. Padding of this jacket is thicker and feels much better than its predecessor. It is a joy just touching and feeling it when I am not wearing it. Ventilation while riding is excellent - Highly recommended if you are wearing it in the tropics or in hot weather conditions.

Amazing Protection This jacket is the real deal. The amount of protection you are getting is incredible. The chest protector, the elbows, the shoulder and the mantis back protector. I feel like a tank when I have this on. The only thing I would say about the fitment is it felt a little bit tight across the chest but the material is a bit stretchy so it accommodates. If you are serious about protection or need some armour to wear under your jacket, look no further. It is expensive but when you think about your life, I think its an investment worth making. I am 5'10 with a size 40 chest & a Medium fit me well. May 23, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Peter Z: protection all over and lots of air flow on those hot hazy humid days, throw on the Dainese t-shirt underneath and all set to ride YEAHH Jul 26, 2014
Daniel B: The Dainese Manis Jacket is AWESOME!!!! I could feel the breeze as I was walking around and going down the road is like wearing a t-shirt. I feel the hairs on my arm blowing from the wind! It covers nicely but still has gaps for great wind flow. Rode in 80-90 degrees days and love it!

This will work great with a sweat shirt when it gets colder.

I'm 5'10" currently 210 lbs and a XL-59 fit great.

This is the single best piece of gear I have ever bought besides a helmet.

A shopper asked: I am thinking of getting a dual-sport bike as my first bike and learning to ride off-road primarily before riding on the street. I want to make sure I am wearing the right gear (at least CE-1 or CE-2) protection and I'm wondering if this is the right armor to get, or are there more complete suits/armor for offroading? I am also interested in the Norosex line, but that looks like it is for more casual riding. Aug 6, 2014

Richard S: I'm not a veteran dirt/ single track rider, and never an MX rider, but I bought this for protection for trail riding on single track, etc.
I'm an outdoor equipment designer and believe that this is one of the highest quality pieces of gear in this range. The price reflects this too. So if you care how well it's made and what it looks like, this is the top. As for actual performance, I think most of the competitive suits in this range all would work well for dirt/ trail protection. Pretty much all made of similar materials and construction techniques. Just not as refined.
You definately feel like your'e dressed for battle in this thing (pretty darn good protection). Especially when combined w a neck brace. The fit is very good.
But, I would not choose to wear this outfit for casual dual sport riding. Too restrictive IMO.
This is a beutiful piece of gear tho......

Brett C: I like way the Manis fits and wear it two to three times a week. Manis easily slides under a hoodie or shirt and comes off without catching on anything. This gear for me has met my expectation. Aug 6, 2014

A S asked: Hello Revzilla
First question, I live in Tamworth New South Wales 2340 Australia so do you have an idea on postage or is it free?
Second question, to get an accurate sizing of the Manis Jacket what do I need measure.

Thanks for your time
