Outstanding protection, exemplary style, overall win. So if you're looking at this thing, you already know that it has a very certain set of styling cues that either will, or will not (obviously) appeal to you. That detail does not warrant further discussion. It seems that when I scan reviews, I'm honestly looking more for reasons not to buy than reasons to buy. If something has innumerable five star ratings, then you can guess it's a pretty safe bet. Well, I prefer to be a bit more critical so that people get a more complete idea of what to expect. That said, here are my critiques of this piece of protection: One: everyone rants on and on about Dainese quality, and whereas I won't argue that for the most part, it's quite a beautiful and well turned out product, I feel that some of the details certainly could have been a bit more substantial so as to prolong the product's life as much as possible. The zipper, for instance, is considerably more diminutive than I would have expected on such a high end product, and has occasionally misbehaved on me. The 'fishnet' style mesh that's used for much of the body of the piece feels like it might not last for a particularly extended period of time, though of course that is realistically no more than speculation. I can't help but feel that the back protector feels as though I might accidentally overextend one of it's joints if I were too rough on it. The new product from RevIt that features the rubber joints between the plates that allows for lateral flexibility seems like a better idea. I have no doubts, however, that the product will protect me well in the event of an impact, and at the end of the day, that's the most important point. The four star, instead of five, is based solely on my concerns that it may not last more than a few seasons of hard use, but again, speculation. Two: Be advised that the waist band stretches somewhat considerably after a few weeks of use, so if you order and the waistband is nearly too large for you, within a matter of weeks it will most certainly be too large. This is not a design defect, necessarily anyway, but should be taken into consideration by prospective buyers. It also does tend to ride up on your abdomen just a bit whilst riding, but it also has attachment points that allow it to be connected to pants or lower armor that will prevent this from happening when in combination with compatible products. Overall, the suit is quite comfortable to wear, even for extended periods, and though it does somewhat restrict movement (necessarily), it is in no way uncomfortable. Big points for that. Three: As one might expect, this is not the easiest thing to don. You certainly learn how to make it as easy as possible within a few attempts, but it's not quite just tossing a jacket over your head and being on your way. It is somewhat involved to put on. This is less a concern for those attempting race-type pursuits, but more concerning for those who will be wearing it as their normal riding protection. Let me say that it certainly isn't unmanageable, but if you are the type of person who will quickly grow complacent and cease utilizing slightly more difficult pieces of gear, you may find yourself in danger of adopting that sort of behavior when considering this piece each day. Because of the extreme heat of Florida, I wear this piece instead of a jacket, and wear a protective vest over the top of it so I don't worry much about that (plus, the bloody thing looks as cool as it feels), but it is surely worthy of mention. Four: Sitting down at a restaurant, or wherever in between ride destinations is less comfortable than you may imagine because of the suits motion restrictive nature. As the back protector extends down low enough to cover your coccyx region, you can't exactly slump down comfortably in your seat. Great for posture I suppose, but not always the most relaxing, and because of how involved it is to take on and off, you may find yourself just sitting there at Starbucks looking like Mad Max instead of pulling it off to relax a bit. Believe me, any cops in the facility will eye you warily. Those points made, this thing is really a great piece of gear, and I'm quite happy with the purchase. I'm a few weeks and many rides into ownership and though I haven't had to test it the 'hard' way (thankfully), I have no doubt, knowing Dainese's reputation, that it will protect me when my hein is on the line. I really do recommend it to those who are in the market and can accept the aforementioned notes/concerns. A final note; Revzilla got it to me at a great price, well packed, and in a hurry. They will absolutely be receiving my business in the future. November 11, 2013
As promised True to size, great ventilation, gets lots of compliments. Not abrasion resistant, so I wear this under an Olympia jacket. Chest protector is the part that takes the most time to attach, wish it was sewn in instead of separate. I do wish it was $100 cheaper, but the feeling of being protected and invincible still makes this a great buy and even better investment. June 28, 2013
Great protective suit I bought this suit to wear under both my Klim Badlands Pro in cool weather and my Rev'it Levante in the heat. Naturally, I needed to remove all the armor from the jackets, but I consider integral jacket armor to be useless (same goes for pants!). Don't ask me how I know. Although the suit is a bit intimidating at first, with all the straps and buckles, it becomes second nature to slip it on after a few tries. The ONLY piece of the suit I am aware of when riding is the chest plate.Being both thick and rigid, you know it's there, but it's not very obtrusive. It DOES block airflow in the heat, but can be removed if you so choose. I like to keep it on, as it securely maintains the position of the shoulder plates. The rest of this suit truly vanishes when it's on. I wouldn't wear this without an abrasion-resistant jacket over the top, as this suit guards against impact only - I'm sure it would shred to pieces during a spirited slide if worn on it's own. It looks really good if you like a bio-mechanical look, but it's hardly a fashion statement. It IS the best pressure suit available, even if the price is a bit eye-watering. If you're serious about impact protection, this is the way to go. I'm 6'4", weigh 195#, and wear a Wave Pro 3, XL. I can even fit an insulating layer UNDER the suit (or even a Warm&Safe heated liner for those teeth-rattling days!) and move quite freely. As an aside, I wear the Dainese V Knee Guards along with the Forcefield Pro Shorts under my riding pants. I highly recommend both! As always, the Revzilla team was top-notch. The sales staff took the time to try on one of these from the warehouse and call me back to get the fit right. I can't remember his name (Ramon?), but he was top-notch. May 19, 2013
Great Protection The Wave Pro Jacket offers great protection and reasonable airflow. Of course with any amour the air flow will be reduced by the nature of how it is made, but Dainese has put thought into this and the air flow is better than expected for this level of protection. Sizing seems to run a little small I recommend ordering 1 size larger than you normally wear. The fit is great, but getting in and out it will take a little getting use to. I would also recommend having someone to help with the initial adjustments after that it is great. Note on fitment, I am 6'5' 210lbs. with extremely long arms, and typically need an large tall in everything. The XL with number 2 back protector fits great. Just enough stretch in the material and the amour is were it needs to be. May 6, 2013
Great Protection The Wave Pro Jacket is a bit intimidating initially with the adjustments. Once you get a few rides in and get the straps set to your body/bike/riding style, it’s much easier. Once its setup, it’s as easy as fastening the chest plate and a zipper. It gets hotter sitting still than just a jacket, but with the added protection it is worth it. Once you get moving, the mesh lets it breathe. I was surprised how much it allowed air in. You can take the chest plate off if it turns out too hot for you. After a long day of riding you may find the neck-protector uncomfortable. I may not have it adjusted “just right” yet, but I found it wanted to push my head/helmet forward. I wear this in the Florida heat under a mesh jacket for long rides on a Motard. I’m 5’9”, 170 Lbs. and the 2/Medium fit snugly. If you have a barrel chest you may want to go up a size higher than expected. July 9, 2012
Stylish is SMALL I was very excited to receive my Wave Pro Jacket after the order time. I tried it on and depression set in, The adjustments will work and once it is fit you will be able to keep those setting, I and a Large by the size chart however I would have had to go with a XXL if I wanted it to fit correctly. I would recomend anyone buying this product to send all of your measurements to revzillia and seek there assistance in making the proper choice. I have returned this product and made another selection to ride protected in the warm weather June 26, 2012
Great product I use this for protection on my commute and errands rides which is all I use my Aprilia 500 GT ABS Scarabeo for. The whole jacket is well made and fits snugly. With a jacket over top of it, and only a t-shirt under it, it still is a bit warm on a warm to hot day. This is ok for me as I am usually not on the bike for more than 30 minutes at a time. As I am a professional, I do wear a shirt and tie to work. If I put a light sweatshirt over my dress shirt this will decrease the wrinkling of my shirt but doesn't eliminate this( which is a reasonable price to pay for the protection). I can't comment on how well the protection works as I have never had to use it and I hope I never have to find out. I also can't comment on the value relative to other similar items as I didn't try on any of the competitors. Having said that, I did look at competitors products on line, and I feel confident that I got the best product and getting the best product, regardless of price, was what was most important to me. May 29, 2012
A must have After contemplating between different protective jackets, I decided to pull the trigger on the Wave Pro. I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting myself into, but I knew how good Revzilla was with their customer service and that I would be taken care of either way. Well, I'm happy to say, I haven't looked back. This jacket is amazing. I knew from the moment I put it on that it was exactly what I was looking for. The build quality is top notch and the amount of air flow is crazy. I also enjoy the adjustability of everything so I can make thing thing fit my husky body. I'm 5'10 220lbs and the XL fits perfect. The back protector is more than adequate and covers the tail bone and the shoulders and forearm armor stay where they need. I have let several other riders try it on and each of them have been impressed. The lower back support works like a charm and stays where you put it. My only grip is how the chest piece fits. It is a major PITA to get this on a zipped up with it in place, so I took it off. For the price, this is hard to beat. I find myself wearing my Wave Pro more than my leathers, expecially on short trips. Just throw a MC jersey over the top and enjoy the cool breeze! May 14, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James M: You can wear it, but you'll need to wear a FULL FLOW mesh jacket over it. Either way, you're going to feel the heat. I don't recommend wearing only this suit when you ride - it's not meant to protect against a slide - IMPACT ONLY!

I lived in Florida a few times and found riding in high Summer to be a bummer (Hey, that rhymes!). This suit will increase your discomfort a bit, but that's a small price to pay compared to the pain of busted limbs and road rash. "If it's too hot to wear the gear, it's too hot to ride".

Kilikia: I have one and love it... obviously you get insane amounts of airflow, everywhere but the kidney belt area... I got a pretty good sweat going on there.

Also, I try to wear something thinner but fairly tight over... in order to keep the pads in place if I did eat it.

I don't think the benefits outweigh those of a good textile jacket though....

RevZilla: The Dainese Wave Pro Jacket provides excellent impact protection and is intended to be worn underneath a MX jersey or riding jacket, but used by itself it will not provide much in the way of abrasion resistance. May 2, 2012

A shopper asked: Is the spine protector removable? Oct 23, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James M: The spine protector is removable, but doing so will also remove the waist wrap section and make the chest/rib protector more difficult to attach, as the strap for the chest piece attachment is loosely held by loops on the spine protector.

In essence, both removing the spine protector and the chest protector will leave you wearing just a mesh shirt with shoulder to forearm plastics.

This is a great piece of gear that I wear under my road jacket EVERY time I ride. It's really well designed and constructed, but I think you would seriously compromise its function if you choose to wear it piece-meal.

A shopper asked: I understand that the 1, 2, 3 are the length of the back protector, I'm 6 - 6'1" 180lbs more of an athletic cut person, will the pro 2 suffice? also I'm a medium "shirt wise" (38), is it gonna be the same here? And can I use this on the street or is it usually only used for offroad/ motoX/ induros? Thanks a lot (; May 28, 2011

James M: I'm 6'4", 195# and I wear an XL #3. I'm longer in the legs, but the #3 fits very well. If you have a short torso, the #2 would be pretty good I think, but the 3 doesn't seem overly long. Remember, this is made by Italians, who aren't exactly known for being tall (no offense to all you Italian Stallions!).

I use mine for the street under a Badlands Pro or a Levante - you'll need to remove all jacket armor though. Of course it's great for off-road.

Hope this helps!

Avruk: Hi Aedhee,

I'm exactly your size and i have the Pro 2... the back protector is long enough to protect down to the tail bone but not so long as to interfere with the seat. I only use it for dirt/offroad in which case i would recomend wearing a jersey over it to prevent the fishnet from snagging on twigs and such. I do imagine that it could be worn for road use with a base underneath and it would look pretty bad a** in my opinion.

Chris K: For over 6 foot, I would recommend the '3' size and I think you are correct about the Medium as well (I would take a large with a 42" chest). Dainese tends to run pretty snug, but the mesh material that holds this together is also quite stretchy. People use these protectors for a variety of needs including street, offroad, and track. I don't think there is really any restriction to your genre of riding. Jul 29, 2011

A shopper asked: Can elbow, shoulder padding be removed so that the jacket can fit under a leather suit and act much like Thorax Wave Pro? Apr 16, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The elbow and shoulder is not removable, since they are fully sewn on to the mesh sleeves. You are able to remove the back protector by unzipping the upper areas and sliding it out, to be worn as a stand along with a kidney belt! Apr 23, 2013
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
James M: The shoulder and elbow armor are NOT removable - you can remove both the back protector and the chest protector. I think it would be a serious squeeze to fit this under leathers. May 19, 2013

A shopper asked: Can women wear this or is there anything similar for women street riders? Apr 6, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Depending on your build, this could be worn by a man or a woman. There are 3 torso lengths and 5 chest size options that make it easy to fit a wide variety of riders. If the shape of the protectors do not work for you, you could combine a Dainese Women's Thorax Pro with a separate back protector. Alpinestars also makes a Ladies-Specific Protection Jacket called the Stella Bionic 2 Protection Jacket that might work better for you. Apr 11, 2012

James M: This particular product, with the chest protector installed, would make for an uncomfortable fit if the woman is well-endowed. There is simply no provision made for the female anatomy. However, I can see the suit being worn by a woman who is a bit less endowed, and with the chest protector removed.
The protector is both thick and very rigid, so there is no "give" to it.
