Gee thanks Dainese!

Can anybody tell me why this is probably the last Dainese jacket I will be purchasing?

On my phone so I can't tell. What's wrong with it and did you try and have them warranty it?

Zippers are far and away the number one failure item on motorcycle gear.

I wish they would use zip ties (different colors) on the zipper at track days instead of bracelets.

Tiny key rings also work ok if you want to go high-class.

Yeah I just got some zipper tab replacements off amazon, cause I'm a straight amazon skank lol. The tab just snapped off mid-zip.....ever try zipping/unzipping one of these jackets without the tab? Yeah it's annoying lol

Happened to my snowboarding jacket, and then the zipper split. Then it made sense why the jacket was so cheap

I second the zip tie idea, those things are straight awesome.

Cause it's ugly, and your color scheme and sense of style is lacking?
