It’s no secret that we’re fans of Dainese’s classic line of jackets, and the Dainese Prima72 Perforated Leather Jacket is chief among them. The brand’s modern line is some of the best moto gear in the business, but when it comes to style that fits in anywhere, there’s no beating a black leather jacket with zippered cuffs and a Mandarin collar.
The trick with motorcycle gear like jackets, jeans or riding pants is striking a balance in style and performance. What you think is a beautiful jacket can turn out to be more of a fashion statement than genuine protection. Likewise, a loud, overdesigned jacket might keep you safe in an emergency and protected from the elements, but subtlety can also be an essential factor.
The Dainese Prima72 comes with removable Pro-armor protection pads at the shoulders and elbows to make the jacket road-worthy, but thankfully, the minimalist styling adds versatility. When you come in, off the road and hop off your bike, it’s nice to look like you’re not screaming to the world that you ride a motorcycle. The soft minimalist perforated leather looks just as at home on a cruiser as it does a sport bike or walking around town. And if that’s not enough, today, the Dainese Prima72 is 50% off — that’s a savings of $330.
