Jacket review: Dainese Tucson Gore-Tex jacket

What’s good? Take the lining out and it’s a great summer jacket because it’s so breathable. People think I must be hot, but it’s actually cooler than a leather jacket.

Put the lining in and it’s a very warm winter jacket – totally windproof thanks to a highly effective neck seal system. Waterproof pockets, too.

What’s bad? Riding through a two-hour torrential downpour, I got soaked. Water leaked through two front panels – not through the seams, but the material itself. It’s never happened again, but faith has been lost.
