Dainese Razon Leather Jacket
Stylish jacket for Naked riders
Ordered this jacket when I took delivery of my Diavel Dark. Been using it for four months now up in Pacific Northwest. Range of weathers, range of temps (65's - 30's). Great looking jacket. Well made. Thermal liner a plus. Good quality leather means its a comfortable fit. The addition of a larger inside pocket was a nice touch. Stick my iPad in there for meetings. I'm 5'10", 38" chest and the Size 48 fit me perfectly.
In sum a stylish well made jacket. Particularly well matched to Naked bikes.

Perforated version is the perfect jacket
I bought the perforated version three weeks ago. I was concerned that the perforated version wouldn't look as good, but the perforation looks good and doesn't detract from the looks. Only the body area of the jacket is perforated, not the arms, which makes it look basically like any other leather jacket. I'm 6' and 195 pounds, 34 inch waist. I usually wear a size 42 (US) long suit coat. The size 52 EUR (42 US) fits me perfect. I wanted the jacket to be "close" fitting but not "tight" and not constrictive, and that's what I got. I wear this jacket on my daily 50 mile commute. After 2-3 days the leather softened and stretched just a tiny bit to conform to my body. It fits me awesome, looks awesome, and is very comfortable. The armour is barely noticeable with the jacket on and doesn't make you look like a geek. I ride an R1200RT (big windscreen) and the weather has ranged from 50 to 80 degrees the past couple of weeks and this jacket has been spot on comfortable. Because of the windscreen, I'm very glad I got the perforated version because the air flow is really knocked back but there is still good airflow. I took this jack for a ride on my enduro bike and it was like wearing a mesh jacket -- very different experience with lots of airflow.

Good jacket for what it is.
This jacket is more aesthetic than protective.
While the leather is durable, the jacket itself does not come with a back protector. This jacket severely lacks ventilation so the cooler the weather the better.
The jacket does look really good though. I get endless compliments about the styling.

Fantastic product in every respect except
the collar it way too large in terms of fit not
style. For such a well taylored slim fit jacket,
the collar is too large in diameter. This is
the only reason i am returning it.

OK, this is a premature 1 day review, and may be I am blown away by the size and the fit - but this jacket rocks! Comfortable to ride in, close fit, I feel secure while riding.
1 The shade is more subdued than the flashy shiny picture shown on this page. The jacket is more sober, watch the video to get a better feel.
2. For New England weather you may want to account for the inner liner when you buy. I went up a size (e.g. i can fit in 52, but went 54 due to the inner lining). The lining keeps the jacket well formed and secure.
3. Didnt feel the need to break it in. Feels good as is.
I havent added a g2 pad yet but there is enough space to add suitable protection if you need it. Will add more in a couple of months.

Great feel and style
Great quality leather, great craftsmanship, and sleek, simple design that catches the eye. It's quite warm and does vent decent with the vents open. Overall a great buy for me.

I wasn't sure I would like this jacket but when I got it I was very impressed. The quality, texture and thickness of the leather is excellent. It fits great and has very good range of motion. I receive compliments on its looks often too.

I own a lot of jackets but this is the one i reach for the most. It's super stylish, very very comfortable and offers a good protection (with a back protector that is not included)
I'm a tall guy at 6'6", weigh about 245-250 and size 60 is a perfect fit in every Dainese jacket. (i own the Alien as well)
Too bad i don't have the perforated version as it wasn't available at the time i was buying, i'd love to wear this jacket all the time on and off the bike, (for the really hot days i reach for the Rev'it Tarmac, which is also top notch)
Overall, if you can justify the price, you will not be disappointed, i promise you that
