Jacket review: Dainese Zentex

Best thing about it: If you plan to ride on the continent during the peak of summer, leathers are unbearably hot, especially in town.

This jacket has large mess panels on the chest and back which let the air flow in and around you, keeping you very cool on the move.

It has armour in the shoulders and elbows, plus a pocket for a back protector - although fitting one blocks some of the back mesh panels.

Worst thing about it: Completely useless most of the time in the UK.

Stars (out of five): ***
