The Dainese Cage is a sporty leather jacket addressed to those users who are looking for a premium quality jacket with an affordable price. This jacket features the Italian design, the Dainese know-how and sportivity for all public.

Construction and materials

As its name tells us, the Dainese Cage Pelle is a leather jacket. This bovine leather is the main material, very common on these kind of jackets thanks to its high levels of wear resistance, offering also good breathability.

Combined with the leather we also find Cordura Comfort fabric inserts, that means nylon fabric strengthened according to offer good resistance to the wear. This kind of fabric is more stronger than the Cordura standard one and also offers good flexibility on critical areas of the jacket.  Finally, we have to mention other flexible panels located in the upper area of the back, just on the shoulder blades. Its main purpose is to offer more flexibility on that area.

Inside, the perforated mesh fabric helps the ventilation and transpiration of the assembly. In the back, Cage Pelle has a quilted fabric ‘3D Bubble’ replacing this perforated mesh. The 3D Bubble is used in many other garments Dainese, as it creates an air cushion effect that enhances comfort, avoiding excessive sweating is by us “stick” to the back jacket.


The Dainese Cage Pelle incorporates composite protections on shoulders and elbows, which are removable. The pads are easily removable thanks to two separate Velcro fastens and if we want to remove the elbow protector – which covers the entire forearm- we’ll find it in a slevee zippered pocket.

Protections are internal and removable (left) and all the packets feature zipper closure (upper right).
If we want to increase the overall security level, the Cage Pelle is ready to install back protector (Dainese Wave G1 and G2 back protector type) through the dedicated space behind the 3D Bubble mesh, and which is accessed via a internal zipper, although we must remind you that this does not come standard.

On the jacket’s inside there are perforated fabric and 3D Bubble textile.

Pockets and closures

Despite being a sporty leather jacket, the Dainese Cage Pelle features numerous pockets: there’re two frontal and a smaller one on the left chest, inside we find two more, one of them on the left flap and the other in the inner perforated mesh, also at our left. Each one is zippered.
The jacket has a zipper as a main closure with a double button at the neck. The same combination of zipper plus buttons is repeated on the sleeves, complemented by a velcro at the waist to customize the fit. The Cage Pelle is not adjusted as other sporty leather jackets, so is more comfortable for a daily use. Finally, there are a small and unobtrusive reflective stripes on both sleeves and at the back that improves our visibility at night without reducing the aesthetics of this elegant sport jacket.

The Dainese Cage’s adjustment system provides the comfort needed.

The Dainese Cage Pelle is ideal for those looking for a classic sporty leather jacket with all the quality standards from Dainese but without exceeding the limits of our budget. And it’s thanks to the value for money ratio that Cage Pelle can be for many bikers their first Dainese gear, and, moreover, is now on sales at Motocard.com
