The Dainese HF D1 Perforated Leather Jacket is a reissue of one of the Italian brand’s early designs from the 1970s – though the new version uses all modern materials including body armor to ensure it’s far safer than its godfather.
Each jacket is made from vat dyed refined full grain perforated cowhide leather, with an adjustable neck and waist, a jacket-trousers connection loop, a full cotton lining, and Pro-Armor removable soft protectors certified to Standard EN 1621.1 in the shoulders and elbows. There’s also a pocket for a back protector which can be bought separately.
