When it comes to premium riding gear, a few names rise above the rest—and Dainese is one of them. Right now this pristine brown leather motorcycling jacket from the legendary Italian brand can be had for 50 percent off its retail price.
The Dainese Saint Louis has a list price of $599.95, but you can pick it up at Cycle Gear today for just $299.95. $300 off? Yes, please! Deals like this on premium motorcycle gear don't come along very often, so when you see a bargain as mind-blowing as this, our advice is to jump on it.
The old adage "you get what you pay for" is a go-to here at the Hearst Autos Gear Team—and it's never as appropriate as when you're talking about motorcycle riding gear. It is, quite literally, designed to save your life. If it's stylish and comfortable too, great!
But Job No. 1 for riding gear is protection. And Dainese is one of the few motorcycle apparel companies that consistently ticks all three of those boxes. Toss in Dainese's legendary durability, and this is the kind of motorcycle jacket you'll wear for years to come (waistline permitting).
The Dainese Saint Louis is a classically styled, glossy leather riding jacket designed for the urban biker who wants protection while they're getting there, style when they arrive, and comfort all day long. It's a great-looking jacket that should appeal to riders of sport bikes, cruisers, cafe racers, and most every street bike in between.
The Saint Louis successfully rides the line between form and function. This isn't just some fashion-y leather jacket you see hanging on the rack at a department store that's made to make its wearer look tough. This is serious riding gear, with CE-approved armor in the shoulders and on both elbows and a pocket for an optional back protector.
Better still, the supple cowhide leather construction and removable thermal liner makes it comfortable for long days in the saddle no matter the weather. You can dial in a custom fit using neck, wrist, and hip adjustments. And once the kickstand goes down? The armor is removable too, so you can comfortably stroll straight from the curb to the bar.
Thinking about skimping on this year's riding gear? Then we've got another adage for you: "If you've got a 10-dollar head, go ahead and buy a 10-dollar helmet." The same principle should apply to all your riding gear and apparel. Motorcycling is dangerous by nature, and the way you ride and what you wear in the saddle are all about the risk you're willing to accept while on the road.
Don't take the chance. Opt for safety, quality, style, and durability with the Dainese Saint Louis. It's available at Cycle Gear in sizes 46-58 for just $299.95.
