Dainese R-Twin Leather Jacket 4.2 5 21 21
Nice Jacket well built, sizing not great. I waited a long time to review this jacket mainly because the price is so high, I expected a lot. The leather is great, super soft and comfortable and it is well made. My problem is the fact that it is tailored for a fat guy. If you have a bit of a gut this is probably the jacket for you. I am 6ft tall 175lbs, the arms, chest, and shoulders fit good (although the arms could be a bit larger in diameter). But when you get to the midsection there is way more material than is needed. I had 3 inches taken out of the waist and now it fits well. The protection, liner and the rest are very nice and I have no complaints other than the kooky sizing in the waist area. Probably the nicest thing about the coat is the collar and cuffs, they are soft and well designed. This coat is very expensive and frankly I expected it to be better fitted. Now that I had it taken in, in the waist area it is better and when zipped to my Dainese Alien pants it works great. But for $700 bucks I shouldn't have had to have it modified. May 19, 2014
expensive Jacket I bought this jacket hoping for italian quality and style. The jacket is made in some former Soviet republic. The zipper is on the wrong side of the jacket left side opposed to most male jackets right side.. The jacket fits tight around the shoulders and shoulder blades. The size is bad I am a 44 chest 210lbs 5'11 and 54 fits pretty good just alittle snug around the shoulders. The jacket does look pretty good. It is fairly warm worn it in 40 degrees with liner no problem. Really this jacket is should be priced around the 300 dollar range instead of the 700. My alpine star jacket has same or similiar features for a whole lot less money. December 30, 2013
Excellent craftsmanship. . I am 5'9" and weight 170 and ordered a size 52. Perfect fit. With the liner in there is not a lot of room for layering, especially in the arms. However in the riding position, the cramped fit is not an issue ( I also have muscular arms). The liner is very comfortable and should work well in temperatures 40 to 50 degrees. The one negative is that the collars is much to wide and does interfere with the helmet strap. Just need to loosen the collar to remedy the interference. The "stretch panels" in the shoulders work really well and there is excellent protection in the elbows and shoulders. I really can't evaluate the durability just yet, but this is a very well made product. Styling is superb. December 23, 2013
Great jacket! Love it! Great jacket. Fits well and looks great too! December 3, 2013
Great looking Protection! I really enjoy this jacket Bottom Line, It LOOKS AWESOME, and it's DAINESE It's a vintage style so it doesn't have all the stretch panels and comfort as the racier Dainese offerings, but thats not why you're looking at this jacket. Also purchased Level II back protector August 2, 2013
R-Twin in a class of its own I have been riding for close to 10 years and had a closet full of jackets (all textile). I was looking to get a leather jacket for sometime now but wanted something that didn’t scream boy racer and was leaning towards a more vintage look without compromising safety. I did try on the Roland Sands Jacket but in my mind was more of a everyday Leather Jacket that you could put armor in. I then tried on the R-Twin and for the most part it has lived up to all of my expectations. First fit – I am 5’6” 155 lbs – I have board shoulders (40 short jacket fits like a glove) and a 32 inch waist (small V shaped torso). With the Liner in it fits me like a glove. I did have to tighten the wait area a little but the shoulder, arms and chest region are a terrific fit (I did try and 48 and it was almost a good fit accept the arm pit area was a no go with the liner in). As for the terrific liner - not only does the R-twin scream qualify on the leather, the stitching, the design but there is so much attention to detail on the liner as well you can see you are buying quality. Now, with the liner removed all those areas do become a “little” looser BUT very very acceptable. The only real complaint I have and it really is a small one is the neck strap as it is not a fit I am used to however being leather I assume this will break in over time. I did try the Dainese G2 back protector but I looked like a little turtle and didnt feel it gave me a lot of protection so upon returning to the store (I must if your in the Phili area) I was introduced to the D3O material and replaced the G2 with that. With the D3O in you don’t even know you have a Level 2 protector back there (highly recommend). I have worn the Jacket in 60F and 70F w/o the liner and it is fine. In my estimation it can be worn 2 of 3 seasons (30F - 75F) and high heat in the summer is not one of them! There is little flow through the small chest vents but the arm area does have some provisions for flow. Bottom line like most other Jackets - once you get moving its not a problem. In the Summer I have another vented Jacket but for Spring, early Summer and Fall I can see the R-Twin will work nicely, One of the areas I am still getting use to is the DAINESE letters on the back – I am usually not a brand kind of a guy and a small part of me says Dianese kind of overdid it with these letters. They do have two nicely done small patches on the shoulder and front which is all that I think is needed but I was assured by the GF that the letters on the back are so subtle and in her mind broke up the back area - and she in fact liked the name on back. The funny part of this was at the time I purchased this Jacket a guy on the internet purchased the R-Twin at the same time and he too had some reservations on the letters so he took a thread ripper to them and took them off. A bold move for sure and not that I am advocating that but I have to say that from the pics I saw you can hardly see the small holes. I may do this in the future but for now I will live with it. As for value on the R-Twin - well thats a easy one - I have been looking for something unique and this was the jacket that screamed at me. The R-Twin will very likely be a Jacket I will wear / ride for a very long time so the upfront cost are there but over the life of the jacket very acceptable. I my mind they hit a home run with the R-Twin and I can see that over time it will break in nicely and keep looking better and better. Ducati Monster BMW R1150RS April 29, 2013
Brown is always expensive Just as most other Dainese jackets, you must purchase the back protector separately (reason for rating protection low). Without the liner, the jacket's interior is irritating, so use a base layer or long sleeve T-shirt for longer rides. This one was made in Belarus or other emerging Eastern block country, not made in Vietnam or China like lower price point Dainese leather. The leather and shoulder/elbow protection does seem to be promising as protective gear. The neck adjustment only has two snaps, and is just workable for my neck. Sleeve diameter seems a tad too large, and the sleeve length is a shorter cut, like a sport bike jacket. It looks great and should protect well. Sizing is probably right on. I expected more for the price, however. ZLA was great with a return from Tobacco to Brown color. The Tobacco color looked different in person. Brown rocks. April 22, 2013
Amazing, Stylish, Comfortable, Protective and well... Just Perfect! The only reason I put Good for the "Bang for the Buck" is because it was so hard to part with that amount of cash, but with that said, once plied out of my hands and forgotten about, I really love this jacket! In fact, I wear it out and about even though it is a bit cold for riding #I tell people I am breaking in the leather#. The fit is slim and tight. I had ordered a size 50 but returned it for a 52. I am 5'9" and 158 Lbs. with broad shoulders. When I ordered the jacket, I asked for a back protector and the ForceField Pro made for Dainese was recommended, so I bought it. However, since the jacket is a nice snug fit, the ForceField Pro was 1.15 Inches thick and stuck out like a turtles back. I struggled with the back protector because I wanted a Level 2 protection but thickness was stretching out the jacket and was tight and really ugly from behind. After a week, I had called back twice about this issue and the second CSR suggested and recommended the Klim D30 Viper T5 Pro Back Protector. So I tried it. Amazing!!! It is 0.72" thick, much lighter and conforms to the jacket far better. Fits like a glove with no trimming required. The best part is that it too is level 2 protection. I am very happy with it and recommend this back protector with the Dainese R-Twin Jacket. I got my bike out last week #End of March 2013# and have already taken three rides with the jacket. I wear an under garment by Tucano Urbano that is wind resistant and warm and combined with this jacket, I was not cold at all. Although I think my Espresso Brown Vespa GTV-300 #cc# is really cool, I think that the jacket is getting more looks:) I would recommend this and stay exactly true to the size in the measurement chart. I had tried on a 50 at a motorcycle show and the rep said that it was my size. They say that if you can zip it up, it fits. This is not true, not on my body anyhow. The size 50 cut into my bottom arm pits and I just could not imagine that it would stretch out. I am much happier with the size 52 which by the way is how I measure. April 2, 2013

A shopper asked: I wear a 52 in a Dainese Racing leather jacket but when I tried this on it was really tight in this jacket. Do you think I will have to move up to a 54 because of the inner lining? Is that normal? Dec 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
C. A: The right answer is going to be your decision. The liner does make it perfect and without it is going to be looser. The question is which season are you planning on riding more with this jacket? Also is it tight with the liner to where comfort is compromised, breaking in the jacket will also loosen it up in time. Is it too loose without the liner? which can be a problem with wind pull. Just remember you are buying the outer look of the shell/color/style not the inner liner; your clothes can compensate for that. Dainese usually aims for fitted race wear so tighter is usually norm.

Jason F: Remember that new leather jackets do streatch and break in to the rider, but for me, I wanted to sit comfortable without too much restriction. Also, I wanted more room for layers when I rode in lower temps. I went one size up from the size chart and am pleased with the fit. Dec 29, 2013
Reply to Jason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ralphie n: Mine fit with the liner on the same size. I did not want to go a size up because in the summer when I remove the liner it feels really good. Going one size up would have made mine too lose in the summer time. I hope this helps Dec 28, 2013

A shopper asked: I love the brown color, but I'm having a hard time envisioning what Dainese was planning for this jacket. Is it just the new kevlar jeans? Feb 20, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chadri: I bought the d6 Kevlar jeans from dainese and the cut and style was so tight I thought my legs were gonna fall off. If you are a real thin guy all around you might have better success but if you have more of an "American" build, might want to check out icon jeans.

But to answer your question, I think the accompanying pants really depend on you. From a style
Standpoint I think jeans are the way to go. If you're looking for real quality protection look elsewhere.

RevZilla: There are no vintage assorted leather pants available with this jacket. The Dainese Trophy pants offer a very similar texture (horsehide) but do not include a zip connection. If you are looking for pants offering zip connections, the best option would be either the Dainese Pony or Spartan 66 pants. May 2, 2012

RainierWolfcastle: I wear it with Dainese SF pants. I have the dark brown (love it) I was worried it would clash with the black pants, but it actually works really well. Or I sometimes wear it with kevlar jeans which obviously work well also. May 26, 2012
Reply to RainierWolfcastle Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
nagilfarswake: Out of their 2012 line, I would say that yes, the kevlar jeans are probably the best fit with this jacket as far as pants go. But the item from their 2012 line that most matches with this jacket is the new cafe boots. May 18, 2012

Chip h asked: Ordered this jacket its being shipped from italy and im having hard time trying to find a good pair of dainese gloves to match or complament the dark brown version. Protection is not a issue with dainese so im looking for a glove that functions well with the sleeve in a comfortable way with as much style as possible. I also wear 2xl alpinestar gloves the fit is a smuge big so would xl dainese be a good size? Mar 4, 2014

midnightmethane: Definitely not as much as the more sport/supersport focused line of jackets. Actually because of the looser fitment on the sleeves now that I'm looking at mine it really isn't noticeable. Well take a look at my pic for reference. Note I'm usually a size 52, and this is a 50 and nothing is bulging out. Apr 25, 2013

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.
