Football pads I ordered this as I was trying to find armor to wear underneath a shell jacket or shirt, etc. and something that I could keep cool in. I can't imagine ever wanting to be seen in public wearing this underneath anything. It looks like you've suited up to play linebacker or are headed to the set of an Avengers movie. It does appear to offer an incredible level of protection but at the cost of being miserable wearing it (and looking ridiculous). May 11, 2015
Great armor, good airflow but material holding armor is delicate! I've worn this armor jacket in my commute to work and was initially pleased with it. The back protector feels light and of good quality, but the longer size will butt against the seat if you have a bike with a more upright riding style causing it to ride a little high (I'm 5'11). The sizing is snug and more of a European cut. The airflow for this jacket is as good as it gets. The armor covers all the necessary high points of the torso, it's lightweight and looks badass. Unfortunately, after 3 months of wearing this almost every day I commute, the material on the right shoulder is beginning to separate from the shoulder armor. The fabric is delicate, but what I find to be the achilles heel of the jacket is the stitching. The jacket was never washed in a washing machine, dried in a dryer or mishandled. It was worn, then placed on a hanger using the hanger loops in the jacket and on the back protector EVERY TIME I put it away. A great jacket with poor durability. I'm afraid I cannot recommend a jacket that's over $400 and coming apart after only 3 months of use. April 29, 2015
you get what you pay for... It took me awhile to justify spending this amount of money... really tried to get by for less... The English company product (certified padding) ended up too hot for anything except winter riding, a high quality (non certified) company's product fit perfect but usually had soreness from a fall though it helped avoid laceration or raspberries (plastic armor but no padding) Since purchase, I've now got around 20 hours of dirt riding and I've fallen half a dozen times. The sleeves at the wrist are just right (I don't have to use tape to avoid skin abrasion from the thumb straps). The elbow pads don't roll away from the area you want protected if your fall has too much sliding (like the other two brands). I've already had a shoulder separation wearing just plastic armor (uncertified) and though I believe I was dramatically helped, I still suspect I could have walked away unscathed with the Manis shoulder protection (pad + hard armor). Almost all of the 20 hours of riding was in temps ranging from 88-100+ degrees. I wore a Merino Wool base layer which I repeatedly wet with water.... If I got in a lengthy section of shade, I would actually start to get too cool... It really is 5 out of 5 for airflow! The goal was to armor myself for falling at least a notch above where I had been--and stop kidding myself it isn't gonna happen to me and save a couple hundred bucks. I'm 5'11"; 190lbs; 45" chest. I bought a Large: Type/59 for the backpiece... Really felt like I was taking a risk not knowing for sure if I was going to get big bang for the buck. VERY relieved after I put it on and saw the quality and felt the fit. Decided to write this review after "Falls" were telling me this is really a superior piece of armor. Dainese deserves some praise. Finally, I did read a review that complained about how fragile the material was. Yes, its fragile if you're going to tug and expect it to come to you: its going to catch, tear, and/or wear out quickly. If you handle it with some patience (kinda like wet-suits), I think you will find it's quiet durable and NOT going to wear out early at all. The fragile light weight pays off--once you're wearing it, there is no feeling of any weight, it breathes remarkably, and the back really does move with you.... Rides: KTM 690R and 500EXC (intermediate rider falling when I take on Advanced stuff) October 18, 2014
Saved my life!!! I bought this jacket as a summer riding jacket because of its amazing air flow and protection benefits. This jacket saved my life. Back in August I was involved in an accident when a SUV blew through a stop sign at a two way stop intersection. I Tboned the FJ Cruiser at 35 miles an hour. Amazingly I walked away with no life threatening injuries. If it wouldn't have been for this jacket, more than likely I would not be here to write this review today. Dainese saved my life that day. As for my poor 2014 Ducati 899 Panigale the outcome was not the same. September 15, 2014
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
