Product review: Ducati Downtown leather jacket

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.
