I have been a racer for 3yrs and my first suit was Dainese. I loved that suit. This jacket is almost as nice as one of those types of designs but not quite as mobile. Overall I would say the air that streams through it is perfect for hot days and not too bad for cold days with the inseam vest to keep warm. The look is cool and the armour will definitely keep me safe. I'm very happy about my purchase! Oh and lots of great pockets!
