Good protection

Great jacket with good protection and really comfy. I'm a 43 inch chest but went for the 46 and it fits perfect with the back & chest protectors fitted. It's not cheap but worth every penny. Great advice and service from Sportsbikeshop as always.

Good all rounder

Iv done almost 500 miles in this jacket in all weather. It's well fitted to me but I can still easily put my thin waterproof jacket over the top and there's space underneath for layers if needed. It fits well, not too tight like some sports jackets. The shoulder and elbow protection is quite low profile, you can barely see its there unlike some bulkier jackets. The armour feels comfortable and stays in place without feeling too tight. I like the waterproof pocket and il probably look to get a back protector insert for it soon.

Excellent jacket

One of the best purchases I made this year. Fits like it was made for me. Formed to my body. Looks INCREDIBLE!!!! I rode when it was 15 degrees out and didn't feel a thing. Alpinestars has always made excellent products. And, as always, Sportsbike shop customer service was fantastic. I would buy again if I had a time machine.

This jacket looks and feels great! It fits well and can be easily adjusted. Good quality materials, armour inserts feel comfortable and high quality. I have given it 4 stars as it doesn't come with a proper spine protector but one can be purchased and fitted separately.
