Corazzo Ventata Scooter and Motorcycle Jacket Review

Corazzo Ventata Scooter or Motorcycle Protective Mesh Jacket

Corazzo realized that their Corazzo 5.0 was fast becoming the iconic scooter riders jacket – smartly, they did not venture too far from its design when they created the Corazzo Ventata.

Ventata is Italian for wind. With the new Corazzo Ventata armoured jacket, you can still have great protection like you get with our long-time favourite Corazzo 5.0 jacket and still stay cool on those hot summer rides.

Where the 5.0 jacket has heavy Cordura throughout, the Ventata has a lighter mesh for much of the body that allows for airflow. Strategically placed zippered vents also help with airflow management. The liberal 3M ScotchLite striping runs down the front and back of the jacket for great rider safety. The Ventata also retains the Knox®  armour pads in the elbows, shoulders, and a CE rated  back pad to protect those vital areas from road rash in the event of a mishap.

The material around the Ventata neck is softer and cut lower than we were used to on the Corazzo 5.0 which enchanced comfort.

Although the Ventata does not offer the same rain protection as the Corazzo 5.0, it is a simple matter to keep an inexpensive rain jacket under your seat that you can throw over your jacket in the event you get caught in a downpour.

Corazzo’s brief bio about the designer, Michael Fontasnarossa, says he has worked in design for Adidas, Nike, and Motorola – all no slouches in the design department. He is also an avid scooter and motorcycle rider which explains why his design integrates both form and functionality.

Summary

We love the Corazzo 5.0 jacket. If you can afford only one jacket and you ride in a variety of conditions, that is the jacket to get. The Corazzo Ventata is a superb warm weather jacket and can be supplemented with a sweater or hoody underneath for mor warmth when required or a rain coat over top is you get caught out in the rain.

Available in black or silver.

MSRP $179.00 US   or $209.00 CDN

Highly recommended.

We would love your comments and feedback if you have a Corazzo Ventata!
