Dainese VR46 Podium D-Dry Black Fluo Yellow Jacket Product Description
The Dainese VR 46 Podium D-Dry Jacket is another replica jacket from Dainese. It is a special version of the Dainese Racing 3 D-Dry Jacket with a Valentino Rossi (the world famous MotoGP championship winner) design on it for the front and on the right arm. Nonetheless, this jacket will still give plenty of safety with aluminum shoulder plates and CE Level protectors in the shoulders and elbows. The jacket also comes with plenty of ventilation and a waterproof D-Dry membrane for light showers.
The jacket comes at a recommended retail price of about 430 Euros, or 470 USD, which is about 70 Euros more than the original Racing 3 D-Dry jacket. So, the jacket will also be competing with the Revit Hyperspeed Pro, Revit Quantum, and Alpinestars Missile Ignition Airflow.
The Dainese jacket is composed of Cordura comfort fabric for a high level of abrasion resistance and comfort. Cordura is a tough material that is frequently used in this segment and it will also give just the right level of stretch to let you move your arms freely. The exterior also comes with a water-resistant treatment to keep the water out. The Rossi styling of the jacket includes a neon yellow band in the chest with a leather VR46, and there’s another yellow fluo armband with VR46 stitching.
For protection, the Dainese VR46 Podium D-Dry comes with replaceable aluminum shoulder plates with a thermoformed base for abrasion resistance. For impacts, the jacket comes with composite protectors in the shoulders and elbows. The Podium D-Dry also comes with extra pockets for the G1 and 2 back protector and a pocket for a divided Pro-armor protector.
For comfort, the Dainese VR46 Podium DDry includes a neck adjustment, a waist quick adjuster, and a wrist adjustment with buttons to adjust the cuffs.
For temperature control, the motorcycle jacket comes with zippered air vents in the back, 2 more on the chest, and 2 more vents on the sleeves. The jacket uses an idraflap fastener to help with weatherproofing. This is a double layered flap on either side that snaps shut, and just makes it harder for water to get in. The rest of the jacket can be opened with a zipper.
Inside, the jacket comes with a removable thermal liner and a breathable waterproof D-dry membrane inside. The jacket uses Dainese’s Sanitized liner and has 2 inner pockets in the jacket and 2 inner pockets on the thermal liner.
For pockets, the jacket comes with 2 on the outside, which are also zippered.
The Dainese VR46 Podium D-dry jacket not only has a great new replica design, but it’s also based on a solid Dainese jacket. It comes with a waterproof D-Dry liner, plenty of protection, and even a removable thermal liner if it gets colder out.
