Dainese Racing Perforated Leather Jacket 4.8 5 20 20
GREATTTT!!!! Being this is my first jacket it really felt good just to own a jacket. but after riding around with it really felt great all around. the price i guess is about average maybe a lil too pricy but definitely a great jacket. March 25, 2014
Worth it for the hot weather and can last in the cold When I first put it on I was blown away on how tailored it felt, such an excellent fit from the get go. The air flow is excellent on hot days and with a base layer I could drive to work at 5am no problem. Just treat it gently as when hit my shoulder against a pull in the garage the shoulder guards scratch easily but then again adds to the overall badass look. January 9, 2014
A jacket with excellent style and functionality The perforated version of this jacket is unavailable in Australia, thus my decision to have this shipped to Sydney by Revzilla (a nine day shipping time over the Xmas break - which is amazing). I bought the predominantly white version in a size 54 (I'm 5ft 11ins and 87KGs) and the fit is terrific. This colour works perfectly as a summer jacket since white tends to reflect the sun and compliments the truly effective perforations. I zip this jacket to a pair of Dainese leather pants and I have to say after about 6 rides it has broken in superbly and feels incredibly comfortable. I don't intend to put its protection to the test but it makes me feel secure and compact on the bike. I ride a Triumph Sprint ST and can't imagine a better jacket than this one. It may not be a "bargain" but considering the use I will give it this jacket will end up providing excellent cost per wear - well worth the investment. January 6, 2014
Rockstar jacket with high performance and protection! The fit and style of this jacket is 2nd to none and its protection is top notch. I'm 6' 2" 180 pounds and I got the 54 and its like this jacket was custom fit for me. Ive gotten many compliments from girls and fellow riders. This jacket is confidence inspiring...Wearing it I feel more protected and sleek, with no bagginess or loose straps flapping in the wind. Great airflow too with the perforated version so during the winter I use a windblocking base layer so I dont freeze... and during the summer I wont roast like a 6' 2" chicken at a stoplight, lol. I also got the Dainese Wave G back protector which is very comfortable and I dont even notice its there. This jacket is not cheap but you will soon forget about the money you spent and be out shredding the pavement in style! December 14, 2013
Awesome Jacket was discouraged at first buying a leather jacket living in southern florida, but stays amazingly cool, very stylish. a bit pricey but worth every penny October 14, 2013
Excellent protective hot weather jacket I purchased the mostly white perforated version of the Racing. I am 6'3", 185 lbs, about 40-41 inch chest and own this jacket in a 52 - perfect fit. I also have the Forcefield back Protector for Dainese (G2 size) inserted, and is extremely comfortable. I live in a very hot and humid area. I went out for a long ride not too long ago and also was stuck in a 40 minute stop-and-go traffic. It was averaging about 92 degrees when i was riding, and peaked at around 97. When I was moving, I was extremely comfortable. Air flow is outstanding, and having mostly white leather probably helped in not absorbing the sun. Did I sweat when I was moving under 20 mph or at stops. yes. But as soon i started moving, the sweat helped cool me down even more due to the great air flow. When i finished my ride, my jacket did not stink at all. The anti-microbial mesh liner is excellent. I upgraded to this jacket from a summer mesh jacket...i feel a lot more protected and just as cool, if not more. When the weather is in low 70s, it flows enough air that it's borderline chilly with a short sleeve shirt...but nothing a long-sleeve cotton shirt doesn't fix. I highly recommend this jacket...just wished Dainese made textile or leather pants in tall lengths...I have a 34 inch inseam, and most of the pants (new air drake or alien) only come in 32 inch inseam for my waist size. October 13, 2013
Awesome Jacket This jacket is my first purchase from Dainese and I am thoroughly impressed. The detail that goes into making this jacket blows my mind from the impeccable stitching to the fit and comfort. I know the protective armor pieces are there but you can barely feel them. My chest, fully inhaled, measures 43 inches and the size 56 fits me perfect. All I can say is good things about this product. I'll definitely be purchasing more Dainese products in the future. October 11, 2013
Great summer jacket I purchased this jacket primarily based on my satisfaction with Dainese in the past and the fantastic in-showroom service I received. I tried on several other Dainese jackets including the beautiful Super Speed - which is expensive and didn't fit well - and the Alien which was cut too generously, among others. This one fit my tall, lanky frame (6' and 155lbs) the best. It also zips to Dainese Alien pants for shoulder-to-shin protection. Perforations cover much of the front, back and sleeves on this jacket, and airflow is great. The two zip-open vents on the front make a noticeable difference when open. There's no liner, so this is a summer-only jacket, which is what I wanted. Overall, quality and workmanship are good. Stitching is neat and even, with no loose threads or unfinished bits. I was, however, very disappointed to see Dainese move away from YKK zippers. The YKKs on my 15+ year old Dainese jacket are easier to pull and operate more smoothly than the Opti zips on new Dainese gear. Let's hope the Optis hold up half as well. The built-in shoulder and forearm protection seem sturdy, but there's no built-in back protector. Really? For $600 a back protector should be part of the package. I added a Klim D3O and that fits well, though I wish the back protector pocket extended a few inches further down my tailbone for better protection. Overall, I'm very pleased with this jacket despite the couple of shortcomings. September 17, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi,

I live in Portland , or where the temp does get hot and cold. Would you recommend use of this jacket in winter months?

Nermin K: Hi,
I bought this jacket this is a great jacket for spring/summer months but i would not recommend it for winter. Its Perforated so you will get a lot of cold air that is why its great for summer.

Having said that - i ended up going down and lucky i had this jacket on me. I walked away without any scratches on my body granted i had glows etc. This jacket did a great job and it was worth the money. I ended up with 12 stitches on my face but that was caused by my helmet because it was slightly bigger then my ideal size and my bike was unfortunately totaled. Anyways i thought i would throw this out there for anyone thinking about getting this its great jacket and defiantly saved my butt. Good luck and ride safe.

Alexander U: Okay so it's roughly 35 - 45 degrees where I am now and I'm able to fit a long sleeve, short sleeve and light hoodie underneath this and I stay pretty warm. You'll want to have some gloves that can go over the sleeve opening to prevent air from traveling up the sleeve. Depending on how many months it's super cold you can get away with this jacket because for me 9-10 months outa the year it's fantastic especially in the summer and come on the jacket just looks and feels insanely good. I absolutely recommend this jacket just maybe not as a winter jacket due to the perforation. Dec 6, 2013

Kurt H: This is a heavily perforated, unlined, jacket and it flows a lot of air. It's great when the weather gets warm, but I'd pick a different jacket when riding below 65-70f or when there's a chance of precipitation.

Hope this helps.

alex k: I used it though the summer/fall and loved it, but it was too cold once the Temp went under 50F.
I guess if you wear it with windblock under, then it would work.

A shopper asked: looking to upgrade to a leather from textile. I ride and will continue to ride sport touring/adventure bikes with an upright seating position. Is the Dainese racing peforated jacket good for the upright position for commuting and long trip rides, or is it more meant for a tucked position on the track? Sep 1, 2013

Brian V: I've ridden it in both positions...comfortable either way. VERY good extended body armor in shoulders and esp forearms. You'll need to add a good backplate though.

Size runs a bit small (it's a euro-cut). If you're muscular at all go a size larger.

Great 3-season jacket. The stretch panels breath well, as do the 4 vents which zipper closed. Good even in summer heat.

Love the jacket.

Brent B: It is comfortable in any position when it comes to the shoulders, back and torso, but the elbow and forearm armor definitely wants to have a decent bend in your arms to feel natural. It doesn't dig into you if your arms are near straight or anything, but it will give you kind of an elastic sensation that you need to be exerting a little force to keep your arms straight.

efrat m: In my opinion, it can be worn either way comfortably, just make sure the fit is correct. Meaning make sure it fits like a race jacket. I ride a zx6r, but have seen people wear it on bikes with an upright seating position. They say it is perfect. Hope this helps Sep 25, 2013

Matthew V: It's really a versatile jacket. I've worn mine for two long trips 6 and 12 hours of constant riding and didn't feel the wear on my arms. Before stretching out it can feel a bit like a race jacket though. Sep 25, 2013

Matthew R: I was debating between the Jaws and the Dainese as well. Ultimately I went with the Dainese for the quality, and the venting is excellent. With the Jaws the vents are only on your chest, with the Dainese they are on chest and arms and they flow incredibly well. Plus the fitment is excellent. I ride in San Diego, I've used this jacket throughout summer and I'm still wearing it now with some layers for the winter. Nov 12, 2013

Tim V: The Racing Perf flows a ton of air. It flows enough air to keep cool in the heat and humidity of Texas. Even with a back protector airflow is good. Depending on your track day organization the Air Frazer is almost as technical with less cost and even more air flow. Nov 11, 2013

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.
