Product review: Ducati Downtown leather jacket

Published: 18 April 2017

Time tested Three months 

What’s good?

It’s what jackets were like before they threw thermal linings, zip connectors, Velcro fasteners, humps and air vents into the mix – and I love it. Made by Dainese exclusively for Ducati, the fit is relaxed and its soft cowhide supremely comfortable. Old fashioned metal zips and poppers add a sense that this is a jacket for keeps, not just until the Velcro gets clogged up with dog hair, while it manages the trick of being light… but not too light.
