Dainese Talos Gore-Tex Jacket 5 5 5 5
A Great Winter Jacket! I have been looking for a Really Warm winter jacket for some time, and the Talos Jacket IS Really Warm. It's also Stylish and has wonderful features. I plan to use this jacket, and the matching Talos pants Exclusively for Cold Weather, in the 40's (F) or below, so I'm not concerned about ventilation for warmer weather. December 20, 2013
Excellent quality; cuffs and vents could use a little work I've only put maybe 1.5k miles on the jacket this fall, including one long weekend ride, but my impressions in the short term: Pros - Very comfortable under movement: despite the thick material and relatively abundant armor, the design allows plenty of flex and movement. It doesn't pull at all. (Note that I ride an old standard-position motorcycle, and I think the shoulders might pull/pucker if you were really leaned over in a more race-bike pose.) The neck is a perfect height for me, offering great coverage without chafing in the front. - Extremely good build quality: all the zips, stitching, snaps, seam rolls, etc., are fantastically-made. Clearly a lot of attention went into the assembly and inspection. There was one thread tail that missed inspection that I had to trim, but that's the only thing I found wrong (and I spent a lot of time looking, owing to the cost of the jacket, even checking the sleeve liners, etc.). - Excellent adjustability: I ordered the same size as my summer Dainese Aspide jacket, used the same Shield G2 back protector from it, and I can still comfortably adjust the fit between a slightly loose "no-liners" and a comfortably full "both liners." The cuffs have three button snaps to go from under-glove to over-glove to over-very-bulky-winter-glove and those work just like you'd expect. I haven't had to use the bicep expansion zips because I have skinny arms, so YMMV there, but they've stay zipped closed with no hassle. - Pockets and storage are good. The rabbit pouch on the lower back will just fit the Gore-Tex liner if you roll it up carefully and don't mind a bulging pocket. Of the five pockets in the front, I've really only used the two lower waterproof(-ish?) ones. - Keeps me dry. I haven't been out in a full-on crazy downpour in it, but during normal light rain, fog, and spray the outer material has proven reasonably water-repellent and when it finally started absorbing water the Gore-Tex liner kept my layers from getting wet. - Keeps me warm. We haven't had much sub-freezing weather here yet, but I've done a good bit riding when it's been just a bit above freezing. The jacket and Gore-Tex liner seem to keep the wind out perfectly enough that the under-layers (thermal jacket liner, wool shirt, wool undershirt) keep me warm but not sweaty. It's easy to adjust the sliding shoulder vents and unbutton the collar on the fly, but everything else requires either being stopped or really good at closing buttons / manipulating small zipper pulls with thick gloves. - Great styling. I have the dark grey/black version with red trim and I've actually gotten compliments on its looks, which I can't say about any of the rest of my riding gear. (Note: the dark grey is a good bit lighter than pictured above. For the actual color, look at the Talos Gore-Tex pants in the grey/black, whose colors match this jacket exactly.) Cons - The cuff is a zipper + three snap system, and while it works very well, the extra "fold" of material that results when you use either of the two smaller-position snaps gets in the way and pokes at your wrist. See attached photo. This sort of design works well on the summer-weight Aspide, because that cuff fabric is thinner and flexible, but it's mildly annoying with a fabric of this weight. I've figured out how to sort of forcibly fold the extra material back against my wrist as I button the cuff so that it mostly lays out of the way, but it seems an odd design oversight on a jacket this nice. - Ventilation during warm fall afternoons (where you get some sun) is tolerable, but not great. I know it's not a summer jacket, but basically you get a little air through the fabric weave, a little through the open-able shoulder sliders (sort of gimmicky, but they do help), a little up the sleeves if you loosen the cuffs a button, and maybe a bit from opening the two vertical-zip chest pockets. We had an unseasonably hot (highs in the mid-80s F) weekend in October while I was motorcycle camping and I managed in this jacket, so I can't complain too much, but when you compare it to air you get just from the Aspide's two small back zip vents... like the video above says, I'm not sure why they didn't add similar zip vents to this jacket. - A very, very minor nitpick, but the Gore-Tex liner has a HUGE care-of-material tag that flops out of the unzipped jacket front when you don't have the second (thermal) liner in. It's both ugly and makes zipping the thing up a little annoying. I haven't had to clean it yet, nor have I gone down in it (yet), so I can't speak to those parts. All in all, despite being crazy expensive, it's a fair value and by far the most comfortable and versatile piece of motorcycling gear I own. (So good that I later went ahead and ordered the matching pants.) November 7, 2013
Perfect!! Composed of 3 layers - thermal, gore tex and the jacket itself. Looks good, lots os pockets and some nice features. I missed some air flow apertures, but it's not that hot and you can always take the inside layers (thermal, gore tex). I used in California summer, it worked great. But once you go inland, where temperatures are higher, you'll have to take it off.... Too hot for hot places. I know I'll use it only in Brazil's winter.... September 3, 2013
Great cold weather jacket, Definitely a fine investment of your money. This jacket is great i live in the northeast where its consistently below 32 degrees (0 degrees celcius) in the winter. I never feel the wind. The shoulder vents are not only a great feature in terms of protection but the venting is great as well when the weather decides to change suddenly. The armor is removable my only (slight) complaints are that the sleeves, while adjustable might as well not be because the fabric folds in on itself if you tighten it and digs in on your wrist making any trip longer than 10 minutes impossible. January 2, 2013
Great cold-weather jacket, fit well I'm 6'2", 185 lbs. I bought both the jacket and pants in size 52. They fit well although I wore ankle-high boots, and the pants rode up exposing a little bit of leg to the wind. No biggie, with full-size boots I'm sure they will be fine. I rode for 2 hours in 33 degree (F) with no windscreen in perfect comfort. I didn't need any extra covering for my neck. Jacket cut placed the neck opening squarely under the wind shadow of my helmet. Great gear, if a bit pricey, and if I were a heavier guy...over 220 say, I might find it snug. December 13, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Amador S: I like the sliding armor on the shoulder that opens up into an air scoop. But also I needed a jacket to keep me warm and dry. It is a bonus to be able to wear this in warmer weather as well. Oct 31, 2014
Ryan K: I'm planning one hell of a trip and i need some good gear to make it happen! Aug 20, 2014
B M: great video review Sep 1, 2013
A shopper asked: I brought a Talos online last year and subsequently crashed in it. For those wondering, it goes pretty well!
My insurance company has had a quote on replacement but since Dainese gear is hard to get in NZ, they're offering me a Revit Neptune instead. Do you think these are of comparable quality? if Not, what would be the Revit equiivalent of a Talos?

A shopper asked: Hello:

1. Gore-Tex makes different membranes, is this jacket's liner made of Gore-Tex Pro?
2. What is the insulation of the thermal liner, Primaloft? Dainese doesn't give the details.
3. As the armor is removable, what is your opinion on it's functionality to serve a multi-purpose, multi-sport role? i.e., could you use it as a shell to ski/snowboard, or hike in it? I know the external shoulder armor would look excessive, but IMHO, is a small price to pay for the extra use. Thoughts?

PeteMac: 3. I can imagine wearing this suit skiing although the leg mobility might feel a little stiff because of the heaviness of the shell material. It's also a little on the heavy side with the armor and heavy fabrics. If I were fleeing the city during a zombie invasion I would definitely wear this suit. Can't imagine anyone biting through it.

A shopper asked: 1. I get a perfect fit with Delmar size 44, should I get size 44 for this jacket too? (only ask because I heard textile fits differently from leather)
2. Should I get back protector G1 or G2 for this jacket in size 44? (apparently sometimes size 44 fits G1 better?)

Fusion: I've tried on both leathers and textiles in the Dainese line and didn't notice any difference in fit. I wear a 54 and got the G2, which feels kinda big, so maybe the G1 would be better if you're wearing a 44. Jul 9, 2012

A shopper asked: It looks like the Talos replaces the Gator Evo and there is mention that the goretex liner is removable. Is the jacket as waterproof as the Gator Evo it almost seems like the Talos may be the perfect all season jacket if it vents! You do such a great job with videos I was hoping you had one in the works for the Talos. Also are there matching pants? Thanks in advance Mark Nov 17, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joel P: The Talos is not necessarily the replacement of the Gator EVO in because they are both current models. There is an outgoing Gator Evo, however, that is replaced by the current version.

The key difference between the Talos and the Gator EVO is that the Talos has the two-stage thermal and Gore-Tex liners allowing this jacket to provide better 4-season comfort. With the liners removed, the air vents will do a better job of providing airflow to your torso. Since the Gator EVO has a longer cut than the Talos and has the Gore-Tex membrane integrated in the outer shell, it does not have direct airflow making it less efficient in summer weather and, thus, a better 3-season jacket.

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.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across 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.
