Dainese Afteride Mid Layer
We think this item fits true to size, but trim. This mid-layer is cut trim enough to fit under a riding jacket, but could be worn separately as well.
For wearing as a mid layer with your motorcycle jacket, we suggest you order the size you wear in men’s clothing, and if you are between sizes, choose the larger. If you plan to wear this item for casual use (not under a motorcycle jacket) and you want a more comfortable fit, choose one size larger than you normally wear in men’s clothing.
Our Two Cents
The shell of this Afteride Mid Layer is similar to other high end performance gear you see these days. Its a fabric shell, but it has a bit of stretch to it. The inside of the fabric has a light layer of fleece.
Dainese sells it for use with a riding jacket. It is intended to be worn under a riding jacket to give an additional layer of wind protection and to give a light layer of warmth. This jacket is a good looking unit and could easily be worn anytime… not just when you are riding. There are no zippers/snaps that are exclusive to Dainese jacket designs, so you could use this layer with any type of riding gear. :: Paul, 06-25-19
Dainese says: The Dainese Afteride Mid-Layer is worn between a base layer and your regular moto jacket for those times you need a little more warmth. Wear the Mid-Layer Shirt on its own as a casual jacket when you are done with your ride.
