The Dainese Stripes D1 is one of the novelties of the Italian brand for this 2017. It is an urban leather jacket with a vintage look, which adapts perfectly to all kinds of weather conditions thanks to its removable thermal lining and the air inlets in the front area. This is the latest evolution of the Stripes model and maintains the essence that made it one of the most successful jackets of Dainese.
Materials and construction
Certified according to CE regulations, the Dainese Stripes D1 is made in Waxy leather, which gives a casual look to the jacket. In addition, it also incorporates suede inserts in the arms and in the back.
Inside the jacket we find the TechFrame inner lining, which helps the perspiration of the garment, and a removable long sleeve thermal lining that protects us from the coldest days, if we so desire.
The fabric of the neck is made of a very soft material to prevent chafing and to assure the comfort of the rider.
The certified composite protections on shoulders and elbows are the most outstanding in terms of safety.
These protections are removable and the jacket is also predisposed to mount a Manis or Wave back protector of type G, although these must be purchased separately.
The removable thermal lining makes it a very versatile jacket, ideal for wear around the city but also for a longer journey.
In the chest area we see two air inlets with zips that facilitate the air flow inside the jacket.
Closure and pockets
The Dainese Stripes D1 has a main zip topped with two pressed buttons on the neck. The arms also have the same type of closure, plus a zipper in case we want to wear the sleeves open. The waist is also adjustable by push buttons. With all this the facility to find the optimal fit and maximum comfort is total.
The Dainese jaclet-trouser connecting zip allows to match it with any trousers of the brand.
Finally, the Dainese Stripes D1 has two outer pockets and one inside.
In short, the Dainese Stripes D1 is a perfect garment for all those riders who use the moto daily and that you like to set a trend. Without doubt a jacket without too many adornments, elegant and reminiscent of past decades.
