The Dainese Stripes Tex is a textile and sporty jacket with a vintage air on its lines. Its main features are lightness and comfort. It is a practical garment very useful for medium and short journeys on our bike or scooter.
Constrution and materials
The Dainese Stripes Tex has been made with QuickDry textile, a very resistant to the wear and very light material. On its inside we find a non-perforated layer, according to offer wind protection. We are not in front of a winter jacket, but it will be very practical during the Autumn, Summer and Spring times, even on Winter if our area has template weather.

Regarding aesthetics lines, the jacket has a reversed cowleather on the pectoral area with the Daiense logo. On the upper shoulders area there is a special sewing, similar to 70's motorbike garment. That makes a jacket with simple lines but with own style, very suitable as an urban motorbike jacket but also as a casual jacket, far away from the motorbike environment. The Stripes Tex is available in two different colored versions: this one and on black colour.

The Stripes Tex fetaures removable protections on shoulders and elbows. If we want, we can replace these protectors for the Dainese Pro Shield protectors, lighter and more flexible. The jacket does not include a back protector, but we will find the specific compartment with zipper if we want to add a Dainese Wave rigid protector as additional element.
Closures and pockets
The main closure is a zipper with a button in the neck's area. The same buttons are placed on the sleeves and the waist, for a fine fitting. The jacket has two pockets on the frontal area and another one on its inside (left flap), all of them with zipper closures. Finally, we have to highlight that the jacket features a zipper to connect the jacket to a Dainese's trousers. The Stripes Tex has also a reflective band.

The Dainese Stripes Tex is a jacket for those who want a light, practical and with urban lines jacket. And all this with the typical Dainese's quality. A 'made in Italy' design that offers functionality for daily commuting in urban and suburbs areas with motorbike or scooter.
