So really what we're looking at with the R-Twin which comes in three colors, this is the dark brown. There's a tobacco and a black. It's really a jacket that's a three season cold weather jacket. So notice there's a lack of perforation. You will get some air flow from these two vents here in the chest. And then these are S-1 stretch panels for comfort and some air flow. You get some air that comes through from the elbow down on the inside of your forearm as well.
But if we look at it, there's a full sleeve quilted liner inside. So to me that screams fall, winter, spring. Summer time with this configuration, depending on where you live, it might get a little bit hot. The big claim to fame, and we're right around that $700 mark, somewhere in that price point, is that this is vintage-inspired, has a really beautiful heritage look to it. Again, in the dark brown, it's just a very different, almost cafe` or city urban style to it.
The Dainese R-Twin is a beautiful jacket, whether you leave the armor in, or you take the armor out. Now thinking through this a less vintage version of this jacket would be something like the Razon. And if you want to take it even a step further and get the sown in quilted liner, you can go up to something like the vintage which is a bit more expensive.
Now we've talked about the venting. We've talked about the stretch panels. Let's talk about the fit. Jason is 175 lbs, 5' 11", 40" chest, he's wearing a 50. It fits him spot on. So it's what you would expect. I consider this true to size from Dainese. And we look at some of the other features here on the front, Dainese sueded logo, you have your embossed snap here, the details really shine on this guy.
And notice how the shoulder works, and I'm about to spin him sideways. Watch what the shoulder line does. Jason, turn to face that wall for me. As we break it down, so you start up here which is this almost rolled or cuffed leather. You work into the extra patch of leather here, that's going to be on the shoulder. And then we continue with that line, which actually does a decent job of getting seams outside of direct impact patches.
But again, they add a nice style. And notice that we have the S-1 stretch panel that kind of wraps the side, as well. Turn backwards for me, Jason. Looking at the back. Again, you see more of the detail. So we have our sueded Dainese logo, you have the stitched areas that really add a very cool, vintage heritage style. But here's one thing that looks like a style point that's a functional point.
This is called micro elastication. Right here along the shoulder, and a lot of previous iterations of jackets from Dainese, you'd see them go to the regular elasticated panels. There would be accordion stretch panels. With the micro elastication, you don't have to, or you do in S-1, you don't have to give up the protective quality of the leather. But you can micro stitch elasticity right in.
So it's a really nice touch. When you buy the jacket, it's not going to come with a back protector. You get a Wave G-1 or G-2, which would be the correct back protector for this guy. And notice the seat goes all the way done. You have some adjustability along the hips with buttons. Three hundred and sixty zipper included, as well. Come back around for me, Jason, to the front here.
The other thing I want to talk about is the cuff. So there are few jackets in the Dainese line that have a full sleeve thermal removable liner. With leathers a lot of times we see that there's a select group of riders, less riders typically go for that. So this is a unique jacket that stands on its own. And, you know, you're paying for that full sleeve quilted.
The cool thing about this jacket is we have our snap. We go up this way which has that nice leather gator. But the end of the quilted liner actually has a cotton, almost sweat shirt-type material finish. So it's completely finished, so it's going to be comfortable. And it's going to allow it to really feel like a finished coat, especially if you're wearing a longer glove where it's going to integrate with your glove there.
So I want to unzip it, Jason. Unzip it for me. Show the inside really quickly. So we look at the quilted liner on the inside. Remember, full sleeve, you're going to have pockets built in the liners. Here are my high quality Opti zips that go up from there. And if we were to remove our liner which is quilted, you're going to see that it's a full mesh liner that you'd expect from Dainese.
Again, this is a 50, and here's my 360 degree zip that's going to allow it to be pulled together with the pants. So remember, three colors in that $700 ball park. This is what I would consider super premium product from Dainese. And you're looking at true to fit. It's really the style that's going to jump out at you here.
