I am in love with this jacket. Not only does it inspire confidence in the level of protection it will provide, but it's extremely comfortable and (if I say so myself) rather stylish. This jacket is certainly not cheap, but you are absolutely getting your money's worth in terms of quality of materials and workmanship. The attention to detail in this jacket is apparent. Every bit is well thought out and well made. As for fit, I'm 5'9, 165lbs, 42" chest and 32" waist, and a size 52 fits perfectly.

Great High End 2013 product
Dainese quality doesn't disappoint. The leather smells amazing fresh out of the box.
My build: I'm 5'8 165 lbs and an athletic build with a 42 inch suit size and measured a 41'' chest with a deep inhaled breath. The size guide recommended a 52. I was torn between a 52 and a 50 and decided with the 50. Even with the recommended size 52, I sized down because I wanted a snug fit. Even sizing down I can grab the chest area and pull up about 1-2 inches of leather, which I think is enough for the Wave G2 back protector and a chest plate. The fit is perfect and the sleeves run right to my wrists without disrupting my dainese 4 stroke gloves. If I sized up to a 52, the extended sleeves may have needed me to get a gauntlet type glove. The sizing really depends on how you like your jackets. I'd recommend going to a 52 if you want a thicker sweater underneath to increase the versatility of the jacket.
Air flow is great. Even with a 50 I was able to wear a T shirt and a light long sleeve sweater to help break in the leather more.
One con: I felt the sleeves to be pretty tight in the upper arm area and in the armpit area. However, I wore it around and took it off and next thing I know the fit is perfect. I rode in it once and it broke into my body shape. 30 minutes into riding, the fit felt great and super comfortable on the bike. It takes some effort to taking off but it broke in really fast. If you feel the upper arm area is your only concern with the jacket, I'd stick with it to let it break in. Any larger may mean longer sleeves which may be an annoyance with your glove or a bagger chest and back area which will bunch up when you're in the riding position. It's a compromise, but breaking in worked out for me.
Great product. I'd buy it again.
Definitely would recommend this jacket to anyone.

Rajarshi D:Hey Ryan. Between perforation and non perf, the biggest deciding factor would be the weather you plan on riding in. I have the perforated one and summer days are fairly warm here (about 25-30 celsius) and the perforation is a god send. And if you're gonna ride in slightly cooler weather, close the vents, throw on a thermal inner or sweater and you're golden. Hope this helps and happy riding!Aug 13, 2013
Ruben O:The perforated will be good for hot days and more ventilation. Non ventilation will cause you to cook on a hot day. But if you live in cooler weather area then I'm sure the non perforated will do just fine.Aug 13, 2013
david l:The perforated super speed does a better job of circulating air through your jacket. This could be a negative in cooler weather so you want to keep your location in mind when deciding to buy perf or non perf.
The non perforated jacket will not flow as much air but still has the ability to vent through the pockets on your chest. Air also flows easily through the stretch panels on your arms. You still may need to wear layers in cold weather.
If uncomfortably hot weather is not an issue where you live, you may want to consider the non-perf version. You will have more color options and a bit easier to clean.Aug 13, 2013
Ainsley F:I live in Toronto, Canada and even though our summers a really short, they can be really humid as well. The perf'd Super Speed by Dainese is idea for humid conditions. The fully perf'd front with vents near the collar bones work extremely well by allowing as much air as possible flow through, while still getting all the protection and fit as the regular Super Speed. That's a win win scenario. The only reason why I would buy the non-perf'd version is to wear it during the cooler times of year. I hope this helps.Aug 13, 2013
Jason W:I have the Alien non perforated because I live in British Columbia, this year I got the perforated super speed for summer and I have not worn the non perforated since. If I was buying just one set of leathers even here where it gets colder I would buy a perforated set and carry a one piece waterproof suit to throw on over the top for the early morning chills and the bad weather days.

Steve B:If you plan on using a leather jacket in 75+ degrees I would recommend a perforated jacket. They are considerably cooler due to air flow. I bought the perforated version for summer track days and am very happy with it so far. Aug 13, 2013
A shopper asked:Hi. Im 5.10" and 195 lbs, with a 42" chest (39"waist). However I like to wear a back protector. If Im going to use one should I measure my chest measurements with the protector on? ThanksFeb 15, 2014
Jonathan T:My two cents is that you should measure your chest without the protector (and be honest about sizing) i nearly always ride with a full back protector and it never feels too tight with this jacket. It might be a little more snug than normal, but much better that then the alternative. Ride safe.Feb 16, 2014
Jason W:Hey I'm 5.10 and 195 I run a size 52 with a back and chest protector in summer perforated. In the winter I use a 54 alien with chest and back, that allows for extra layers but I could still get a layer under the 52 if I had to.Feb 16, 2014
Jason W:Ps if you get the chest protector our size says medium or large will work but I'm telling you now the medium is much better if you are in a sport riding position, the large gets in the way when you tuck.Feb 16, 2014
Keith S:Hi, I would take the measurements with the protecter on. I'm 6' 205 with a 45" chest and a 34" waist, I have a size 60 and it's a bit tight. Jacket is excellent. You won't be disappointedFeb 16, 2014
Chris L asked:ok seriously, whats the difference between these and the C2 versions? besides the colors and the lack of hump branding? can i get an in depth answer as i want to buy the right jacket. also im 6'1" and 190lbs 32" waist. and braod shoulders and chest. what size would you recommend?? i heard dainese fits smaller?Dec 19, 2013
Jason W:I'm 5'10 190 lbs I'm a 52, it will stretch and mild. I have a 54 for winter non perforated so I can wear layers under it (I'm in Canada )
It is a great jacket but if you wear the Shoei RF1100 beware that the helmet will rub on the hump. Dec 19, 2013
