Product Review: Dainese Laguna Evo Pelle (£349.99)

What’s good about the Dainese Laguna Evo Pelle jacket?

This sporty leather and Cordura jacket is aimed at being good for all-year riding thanks to a removable thermal lining and ventilation panels on the front. I used the jacket in all weathers and even on the coldest of days, in conjunction with a winter undersuit it worked well. Summer months were good too as the liner was easy to zip out. I loved the stealthy near all-black colours but brighter versions are available. There is CE-certified armour in the shoulders and elbows and a Dainese back-protector can be slotted into a pocket too. It zips securely to Dainese leather pants too.

And what’s not?

It’s fairly pricey and I found the cuff a little irritating initially because the leather was a fraction too thick right at the edge of the sleeve.
