Dainese AGV 1947 Leather Jacket


Product Description

Commemorating a 70 year heritage in motorcycle gear artistry, the Dainese AGV 1947 Leather Jacket radiates timeless moto perfection and Italian authenticity. With pockets to accept armor in the elbows, shoulder and back, this is a piece of history you can wear casually or out on the bike in modern style and safety.
These days the brand may not conjure the same associations with leather goods as the name Dainese, but AGV�s roots, like those of its sister brand, are in traditional Italian leatherworking. In fact, AGV got its start in leather goods for two-wheeled enthusiasts nearly a decade before Lino Dainese was even born.
Originally trafficking in bicycle saddle covers and baked-leather cycling helmets, AGV soon turned its sights on the scooter market and began crafting leather saddles, covers and backrest pads for Vespas and Lambrettas. The first AGV motorcycle helmet was made in 1947 the same way as their cycling caps - leather, stretched over a wooden mold, then baked in an oven.
Bankrolled by the success of their scooter saddles, which Vespa adopted as factory equipment, AGV was able to stay at the forefront of motorcycle helmet design through the early days of industry skepticism and on for the entirety of modern helmet development, crafting their first fiberglass motorcycle helmet as early as 1954!
Now that the two most storied Italian motorcycle gear brands have combined their expertise as well as their heritage, and the Dainese AGV 1947 Jacket pays homage to their racing pedigree and unique place in motorcycling history.
