Verified Customer Reviews for Dainese D-Air Smart Jacket
This is my second airvest and my first without a tether. The extra sense of freedom this gives is great though there was nothing wrong with my old Helite - except I could not fit the tether to my new scooter! Now I can ride anything fully protected. The jacket sizing is clearly Italian - Large was far too small for me and I ended up with XXL - but Sportsbikeshop are great at returns so no big deal. The manual for the vest tells you how to connect up the wiring but mine came fully wired up - either it was a return or Sportsbikeshop do this for you, not sure which but not really important. Overall extremely pleased with it.
Excellent piece of protective gear. Allows you to remove the existing back protector from your jacket. It is rather heavy but once on you don't notice the weight. it recharges via USB and is easy to set up. Recommended.
V. Impressed. My jackets are on the loose side so easy to fit under abut also adjustable to go over for touring and extra visibility. Pick the size above your jacket. I though I would be using the light system for status but nope the buzzer is fab. Buzz it's on, another buzz when you get on the bike and it's armed. Buzz when is disarms when you get off. Don't want it going off when you slip on some idiots diesel. You always know. Clever little feature. Because it's so "light" (just like when you wear a chunk armoured jacket) an easy, I wear it all the time even for pop to the shops trips. Tech is expensive but better to pay now than regret whilst in pain or worst later

Product VideosThe Smart Vest
In 1972 Mr Lino Dainese made some leather motocross trousers, starting a biking brand that has since brought style and innovation to motorcyclists the world over. Working with some of the most evocative names in motorcycle racing, Dainese led the way in the development of leather stretch panels, knee sliders and race suits- cut to suit the rider in a real world riding position. The 80's brought back protectors (with Barry Sheene), composite armour, and more aerodynamic suits; whilst the 90's brought gloves with knuckle armour and the first biking airbag system. Dainese remains at the forefront of motorcycle clothing technology and continues to be the brand of choice for the biggest names in bike racing, all the way up to the greatest rider of all time, Valentino Rossi. Today, Dainese is one of the most recognisable, coolest, and most aspirational motorcycle brands on the planet. With a well deserved reputation for safety that has crossed over into nearly every extreme sport there is, the name Dainese is synonymous with style, protection, comfort and durability.
Questions and Answers
As this can be worn under or over how do you size? Actual chest size or jacket chest size?March 22, 2023
If wearing the Smart Jacket over an existing jacket, we would recommend opting for the same size, as the Smart Jacket is made of a special stretch fabric and comes with a convenient waist adjustment system. If wearing under a jacket, please opt for your standard chest size and allow an extra 2 inches between both garments.
Does it require a subscription?March 20, 2023
This doesn't require a subscription.
I am a motorcycle instructor. Could the word INSTRUCTOR be written on the rear of the yellow vest without compromising the integrity of the vest? Secondly is it easy to clean the yellow vest?March 13, 2023
This would be fine, you would need to just be careful not to stitch into the airbag.
