Looks like a really nice textile full suit. However, take a look at the back picture of it on the German sight. What is that butt flat supposed to be? The color of the flap is black so it stands out even more. I don't like that unfortunately. Since getting into sport touring, which means a textile jacket, I have to be honest and state I like textile much better than leather. No comparison in the comfort department and the flexibility department. In the latter you can do much more when adjusting to changing weather conditions. However, I think leather ultimately is better in protecting you against abbrasion when sliding on the pavement. Also, I have never owned a high quality suit like a Dainese, only the cheaper stuff which are much stiffer compared to Dainese. I think given the chance the Dainese leather would be as comfortable as textile since the leather is so soft and pliable. Dainese has launched a very nice line of textile jacket and pants called the System D. I checked it out at Motowheels and I was impressed. If I didn't just buy my Olympia jacket I would have bought the Dainese model instead. For the price the Olympia jacket is nice tho.
