Dainese Stradon D1 Gore-Tex
 
The Stradon jacket is made from highly resistant Cordura with S1 elastic fabric inserts in areas requiring more mobility and cow leather inserts on both elbows and back, in order to increase abrasion resistance at these critical points. Merged within there's Gore-Tex Pro, a waterproofed and highly breathable membrane that offers protection against wind and rain so necessary in winter. And inside, we have a removable thermal liner and a 3D-Bubble fixed lining fully ventilated and with Sanitized treatement which offers antibacterial properties.

Among Stradons D1's many elements what differentiates this jacket from other rivals are details like the double removable neck, so we have two different necks where we can extract both the inner collar (buttons adjusted) and outer (zippered) for regulating the jacket's inner temperature to the different climating changes. The jacket also has two front entrances and two rear vents with zipper.
 
As for protection, the Stradon features Dainese's aluminum insert pads on co-injected plastic along with elbows protectors and a Wave G2 level 2 back protector (the most effective level). There is also room for a Dainese Double Chest protector, which also comes standard with the jacket. Threfore, the jacket features a very high protection level jacket.
