I Knew I Shouldn't Have tried On That Dainese Jacket....

....now I have to have it, and nothing else will work.

Damn me. It's the Laguna Seca perforated jacket (not the full suit, just the jacket). Fit perfectly, wasn't too stiff and constricting, and felt solid yet comfortable. Now to come up with $450....

Any ideas of where to get it for cheaper? CycleGear has them on sale for $370 at the moment, which is awesome, but still not sure if I can swing that.

Damn me. That is an awesome jacket.

(Yes this is a pointless thread, but I had to get it out..... )

Give in to your tempations! Tell yourself you *need* it because it's for your safety, not some useless splurge of money spending.
I guess I would check out Ebay, I bought my Icon Hooligan jacket for $85 brand new, sticker price $290.

I would have to say that is helping yourself and not the economy. Just buy the ****ing jacket already.

Congrats! My husband's first leather suit was Vanson. They were nice enough and comfortable, but he really loves his Dainese suit for track days.

Maybe a little harsh, then again he/she/it is probably used to getting called out for being a waste of typing space

Check out Bert's MC in Covina, they've been reducing their prices. It would give you better comparison and confidence for that $370.00

Good luck

Well, it's been a month-and-a-half later, and we're still eagerly awaiting a pic of you wearing this jacket.
