The Dainese Zhen Yun Vintage Jacket

I feel in love with the Dainese Zhen Yun Leather-Textile Vintage jacket because of its 70s/80s vibe, and it is truly retro, the jacket has some textile inserts, but have to do without thermal lining or venting like modern textile jackets. But is it any worse for it? Not really. This is just a simple, cool jacket that incorporates CE-approved armor at the elbows and shoulders and a pocket for back protector.

I've used both a Forcefield and a Dainese item and both fit well in the jacket provided back protector pocket.

The Dainese Zhen Yun Vintage motorcycle jacket is lightweight and easy to wear when not on the motorcycle, but decent and well-fitting on it. Although I have some leather trousers with kneesliders to zip to it, it's not the kind of jacket I'd want to do a trackday in – its more relaxed fit means armor could move around in a crash. But for riding along on a average day in Bangkok the jacket and jeans I can think of nothing cooler.
