I've always admired Dainese leather gear but could never justify the expense. Recently came across an almost new condition Dainese Charger jacket for a too good to resist price and snapped it up. While I have to say leather is not as practical for the temperature extremes as a good quality four season textile jacket this thing has better protection and is phenomenally comfortable in moderate (80F to 55F) temperatures. The front of the jacket has micro perforations. Not as cool as mesh in extreme heat but also better for cooler temps. It seems to have a moderating influence on the outside temp. It is warm when it is cool and seems cool when it is warm. Also has a full sleeve insulated liner. Fits like a glove, is nicely styled and has first rate protection.
