How To Check For The Right Fit

Second only to your helmet, your riding jacket may be the most important investment in motorcycle riding gear.  You will want to look for a comfortable, yet snug fit for the highest level of upper body protection.  Below is the measurement guide and the size chart for the Dainese Razon Leather Jacket.  It is very helpful to have someone else help with the measurement.

1. Chest Size – Using a measuring tape, place it beneath your armpit and measure around your chest to the fullest point.  This applies to measuring for mens and women’s jackets.

2. Sleeve length – Place your hand at your hip so that your elbow makes a ninety-degree angle.  Place the tape at the center of the back of your neck and run the tape across to your shoulder, onto your elbow and ending at your wrist.

3. Jacket Size – Use the sizing chart below to select the closest fit to your measurements.  The size on the left is measured in (cms) and the size on the right is (inches).  If a size is split, it is best to order the next size up.

Pros:

  • Composite protectors are certified to meet Standard EN1621.1/97
  • Removable Liner for warmer weather riding
  • Removable Composite protectors
  • Chest Vents for breathability

Cons:

  • Front armpit area is a bit tighter than a usual fit
  • If you are used to sizing for Dainese race apparel, chest has a looser fit

Summary:

The Dainese Razon Leather Jacket sports more of a casual cut than a race style.  With the liner in, this jacket will keep you very warm.  The chest vents will keep you comfortably cool and can be closed off when extra warmth is needed.  This classic style of leather jacket looks good on or off your bike.  The fit can vary up to a size with or without the liner in.  The Dainese Razon looks great on any type of ride.  This jacket has excellent construction and attention to detail and is sure to last you for decades of riding.
