Dainese riding jacket

Got a Dainese Portland 2 textile jacket from Cycle Gear about a week or so ago. They gave me a pretty good deal on it. Very satisfied with the styling and protection (integrated back plate). I plan to wear this year-round, so it'll be interesting to see how well it vents in the hotter months.

Anyway, let me know what you guys will be wearing this summer.

That jacket looks killer. How well do white leathers keep you cool when you're not at speed?

Nice, if they have your size in stock, ask for a deal. Otherwise, could take a week or two to ship in from Italy if someone grabs it.

I have the previous model (same really) in black. It is a hybrid jacket with leather and mesh. Worth every penny and hard to get me out without it. Mind you I have over 10 jackets but this is the only one I wear.

On the larger items, you just need to ask if they can give you a deal. Both times I've asked, they quoted me something under MSRP that also matched the lowest internet price I could find.
