Dainese Racing 3 Leather Jacket - Black / Black / Fluo Red
Customer Product Reviews
If you're thinking of buying, just do it!
I've never had properly fitting leathers, as I'm short (5'5") and slim so have found it tricky to get anything that doesn't resemble a leather tent. Always wanted some Dainese leathers, though the prices put me off. I took the plunge and bought this and the Misano trousers. I should have done this a long time ago... the quality and craftsmanship gone into these leathers is incredible. A lot of thought has gone into the cut, and fits brilliantly. It's expensive, but if you're thinking of upgrading your gear just do it. You won't regret it!
I was after a new jacket as my Furygan leather was starting to look a little tired. Excellent service as always from Sports Bike shop. The jacket is excellent quality and very light weight. I got the 3xl. The jacket comes with Velcro shoulder armour, the jacket also has external shoulder armour. I had to remove the internal armour as the jacket was to tight around the shoulders. I'm on the large size in the chest and shoulders, if I'd gone up a size it would be to big but in the waist. So far I'm really happy the jacket, just needs a little more breaking in. The coloured panels are very bright fluorescent red, I think it looks great. Over all a stunning looking jacket.
Typical Dainese quality and service from SBS
This is my 4th Dainese Jacket in 30 years, all of which I still have. Out of the packaging, straight away this oozes quality. They just fit, nice cut, armour sits in right places, very comfortable from the off with minimal breaking in. (I also have the pants to match). Riding, they are very comfortable, the Fluro Red is very noticeable, so decent nod to safety. Went out last week in 27 degrees, and with the vents open, didn't overheat, also been got caught in a shower in Northumberland, no issues. Sizing is spot on I'd say, I'm 5'11", 44" chest, 34" waist, 32" inside leg, a 54 jacket with 52 Pants fit just nicely. Ordered 1400hrs on the Thursday, got an email it would be delivered Monday, quick phone call to SBS, they changed the delivery to a Saturday free of charge, so was able to wear over weekend as planned. I found it cheaper elsewhere, quick email and as per SBS promise, it was price matched Cracking service guys as always, keep at it.
My first leather jacket. The fit is perfect, especially in the arms. Real high quality feel to the fit and finish, the stitching and the leather quality. The zip works perfect with my textile D-Dry trousers. Its why I always buy Dainese. Definately for warmer weather (15 degrees C plus). Don't get too hot in these. Upper arms feel cold in the breeze though, could do with more insulating.
Always wanted a Dainese jacket...
...and finally got the Racing 3 recently. Really happy with the fit and quality of this product. The only minor negative is that it did not come with a back protector, so had to shell out another £54, but still worth it.
Love this jacket! Honestly I've tried loads of them. I'm surprised I've not been banned from SBS. I'm a 40 inch chest & size 40 (Euro 50) is spot on. The smell of the leather is intoxicating! Quality is superb & the fluro red is very striking . The sleeves are slightly too long but I'll live with it. Huge feeling of protection when wearing it. Also SBS service great as always.
