The Dainese Corbin D-Dry is a jacket made of leather and ventilated mesh panels with a very versatile and functional vintage look, perfect to wear throughout the year and in all kinds of conditions. Its multiple adjustments, added to the treatments that his leather receives, turn it into a very complete jacket.
Materials and construction
The jacket is made of Charge cowhide with ventilated mesh panels. This leather is characterized by incorporating a silicone treatment that repels water, so that we can circulate with it when it rains, something that is usually not recommended when we use leather jackets. This treatment also makes cleaning it really easy.
As regards the panels in mesh fabric, they are of high tenacity and ensure a high durability and resistance to abrasion. We see them spread across the front and back of the jacket and also on the arms.
The jacket incorporates removable and certified composite protections on shoulders and elbows complying with European regulations.
It is also ready to mount a back protector type G, although it is not included and must be purchased separately.
Interior and temperature
It is in the temperature section where we find the strong point of the Corbin D-Dry. And the jacket offers up to four different configurations, adapting perfectly to all types of weather conditions.
To make it clearer, the jacket has a waterproof and breathable D-Dry removable membrane, to adapt better when we catch the rain; a removable thermal lining of 130 grams, that we can use it in the coldest days and remove it in the hottest days; and finally another fixed inner lining in perforated Sanitized fabric for greater breathability and softness on contact with the skin.
Despite the numerous layers that the jacket equips it weighs approximately 2,760 grams, which allows us to drive comfortably.
The inside of the neck has a material similar to neoprene that makes it really nice to skin contact.
Closure, pockets and details
The main closure consists of a central zipper with a snap button in the neck area and adjustments as the buttons on the wrists and waist make it easier to fit better to our body.
The jacket has two exterior zip pockets and two inside. In the thermal lining we also have a pocket to save more valuable things.
It also highlights the jacket-pants connection zipper, in case we want to join it to a brand pants when we make long journeys.
In short, the Dainese Corbin D-Dry is a casual and sport-touring jacket perfect for those who go by motorbike any day of the week. An elegant and retro jacket with a strong design component but at the same time allows to cope with different climatic situations.
