Dainese D-System D-Dry Jacket
Excellent Jacket. Saved my skin
Had this jacket for a couple of years and had no problems. Great airflow and visibility. I had the Red/Black color. Nice and warm with the liner in.
Crashed my bike less than a week ago. Jacket took a beating but saved my skin. Glad I had put the elbow and shoulder pads back in that morning.
The jacket isn't cheap but you get what you pay for.

lots of storage
All i can say is holy pockets. if you need to carry anything this jacket can hold it.. along with that the comfort and warmth is great. in cold weather and just a tee shirt underneath i am nice and warm on long rides with the liner in. on warm days and the liner out air really flows nicely keeping me nice and cool. only problem with jacket and it is far from a deal breaker is beacuse the sleeves unzip the mobility of arms can be a bit restricting and when in a 3/4 position can be a bit tight in the shoulder area. also the lack of a back protector was dissapointing after shelling out big bucks the for the jacket then another 89 bucks for the back protector but you cant put a price on safety so it is a must and the day after i ordered the back plate it was at my house and very comfy when put in.

Love the details and features of this product.
This is shaping up to be the most useable real world jacket I have owned to date. The temperatures around here have recently been hovering around 40F and I have been completely comfortable on hour long rides with just a tee shirt underneath as long as I had the liner all sealed up. I had to order one size up to accommodate my chest and back protectors which kind of killed that slim fit style but it feels great.

Cool looking!!Same as the BMW Ralley 3 jacket but half the $$$.
Dainese's new 2012 collection is coming in so this one went down $100 to $450 Great buy!! Fast delivery.
Great looking jacket.
(I got the black/grey. The grey is darker looking then the photo shows, looks even better in person!)
Very durable. Tailored for an athletic build.
I'm 6'1 175lbs and size 52 fit me like a glove.
Only downside is the back protection (g2 wave) is not included and runs high at $89.

Wide comfort range, huge practicality
This jacket is not cheap. Let's get that out of the way, because in most every other way it simply excels. Superbly comfortable, great venting options, great pocket space. It looks great, and I get complimented on it all the time.
It performed fine without the liner in light rain. Fairly wide comfort range; I would say from the 40s up to the upper 60s with the liner in, and well into the mid 90s with the liner out and all the vents open. Beyond that, pretty much no jacket will keep you from getting really hot.
I recently crash-tested this bike when I low-sided on a road shoulder. Fell into rocks and dirt, had one very small rip on a seam and some punctures in the clear plastic shield over the "technical pocket" so it's no longer waterproof. Some of the reflective banding was scuffed off as well. All said though, the jacket still looks really good and should be 99.5% of its original protectivity.
Would not hesitate to buy this jacket again. Not for a moment.

I couldn't be happier with the jacket. With the liner in, its a fall/winter jacket but liner comes out and its really an all-season product. Great quality, great finish. Had expected to use this only for adventure-type riding but have found myself reaching for it for daily in-city riding. Highly recommended.

Excellent warm weather jacket
this jacket flows a large amount of air. Enough to keep me cool even on 90+ degree days. The d-dry liner works well and blocks out the rain. The fit is good I had to order a size larger than the fitting guide said. The first jacket fit well but was tight in my upper arm area and also would not allow me to fit my heated liner under the jacket.
All of the pads fit well and stay where they belong while riding. This is becoming my favorite riding jacket I've ever used.
