Dainese Women's Air-Flux Textile Jacket (Size 42 Only)
Amazing first jacket!
This is my first motorcycle jacket, so I'm probably biased, but this jacket is amazing! It's lightweight, looks amazing, and comes with nice elbow and shoulder protection that doesn't slip. I wore this jacket during my riding course, so i didn't get the full air flow feel, but i definitely felt each breeze that blew through. The chest vents zip up, and theres a slot in the back for a back shield. It was hot, but I didn't sweat too badly in this jacket, which will be great for safe summer riding. I also got rained on, but the non-mesh parts repelled rain like nothing i've ever seen. The mesh parts did a better job at repelling the water than you'd expect, and its double-layered, so i stayed pretty dry. I'd probably just keep a long sleeved shirt in my backpack to put on underneath the jacket in the summer.

Great fit and comfortable. It is lacking in the feature department though; some inside pockets would have been nice.

This is a great hot weather jacket. It's super lightweight and will be perfect for hot summer days. I'm 5'1" and 110lbs with an athletic build (wide shoulders and back). On the advice of Rania M. from Revzilla costumer service, I ordered a size 40. Based on the measurement chart I was ready to order a 42 or 44, but the size 40 fits perfectly! I could fit a warm layer under it if I needed to. I really like this Dainese jacket because it is cut well for a woman and keeps a slim profile. I like the black color as opposed to something pink. It has good elbow and forearm pads, as well as small shoulder pads. The material itself seems somewhat thin compared to other motorcycle jackets, but I still think it will protect my skin in a crash. I have not worn it while riding yet, but the collar may come into contact with your helmet if you have a short neck! I prefer no collar on jackets for that reason. However, I really do like this jacket as a summer alternative and would recommend it!

Comfortable and versatile.
This is my first motorcycle jacket - have to say it fits me well. Really nice to ride in - fantastic air flow.

I have always loved Dainese's brand and this was my first purchase. On other reviews people always said to buy size or two bigger. I must say that I'm happy I listened to my gut and did not buy a bigger size. I'm always afraid of ordering gear online because despite the fact that I'm petite, I'm top heavy (meaning my breasts are very large). I ordered a size 40 and it fits perfectly but I have just enough space to add in a back protector, since it does not come with one, and I really think anyone riding with this jacket should buy one. I only wish the jacket had inside pockets but it's such a beautiful and comfortable jacket that it compensates in other ways. I'm 125lbs, 5'3, and a 34DD and the jacket fits perfectly. You never want a motorcycle jacket to fit loosely because God forbid you have a crash, you want the jacket to stay in pace and not ride up, exposing your skin to the ground. I hope you find this helpful :) Ride safe everyone!!

I am 5'5" 115 lbs and purchased a size 40. The jacket fits perfectly and is quite comfortable and stylish. I am, however, not a fan of the velcro at the neck. I find it restrictive but I just tuck it in at the side to overcome that and it's fine. Also, there are no inside pockets which would have been nice to have. These are the reasons I gave an average rating for the features. Overall though, I am pleased with this purchase.

Perfect mesh jacket for SoCal riders!
This jacket is amazing for summer weather riding in Los Angeles!!! The air flow is great and there is no liner or inner layer so the air goes straight through. Good protection on shoulder/elbows but does not come with a back protector.
Also no inner pocket - which isn't too big of a deal. The outside pockets are large enough for your phone/wallet.
As previous reviewers mentioned - I hate Velcro! It gets stuck to your helmet strap, or anything else for that matter. I tuck the Velcro strip near my neck inside so it doesn't get caught on stuff.
I am about 103lbs , 5' 3" - size 38 was perfect. 40 would've been a little loose around the chest area.
Best thing was that I got it on sale so the killer deal made it a no-brainer :)
