Alpinestars Ares Gore-Tex Textile Jacket - Black
March 29, 2020

Best jacket for winter

Can't be more happy about this jacket. This is a 3 season jacket and does an amazing job. Pro's: I used to wear this jacket and only a t-shirt underneath even in the colder months and with the thermal layer on you can't feel the cold. Cons: It doesn't have a back protector but I bought an Alpinestars CE Level 2 back protector. It's 100% waterproof but the outside layer gets soaked because it's not water repellent and can get a bit cold when raining. Other than that... good value for the money. Would I buy it again? Don't know... maybe I'd get something a bit more expensive that is water repellent. If you're on a budget that's the best jacket you can buy.

Brilliant jacket and excellent service

What a great value gore-tex jacket. I have ridden for the last 8 years in Rukka. Clearly they make some great kit but I just couldn't stretch to £1-2k for a new set. Saw the Ares and read the reviews. Sportsbike shop price matched and I ordered on Sunday. The jacket arrived on Monday which was amazing. The medium didn't fit around my biceps so I started a return. Dropped it off to UPS Monday afternoon and I had a large delivered by Wednesday. Incredible service from a brilliant retailer. I have done a 1000mile tour of the UK since getting the jacket and it's been in lashing rain and burning sun. A brilliant and good looking all weather bit of kit. Get one while you still can.

Really pleased

Great jacket. It's been perfect during rain keeping me nice and dry. There's a waterproof pocket on the inside which is handy. It's seems well made and size fitted as expected. Jacket is warm in the chilly months with the thermal liner put in. Bearing in mind I'm giving this 5 stars - the only small downsides are that it could be fractionally longer and that the ventilation could work better in warm weather. Maybe it's something to do with the goretex at a guess

Dry and warm

That's a really good jacket, well made but little bit heavy. I purchased at the middle of September and I had to wait for 2 weeks for the first rainy day to try how waterproof is but after 6 hours of rain I was really satisfied, it kept me dry and warm. The size is little bit on the down side, I'm 6,1 and usually L is fit on me but I went for XL with that jacket and It was a good decision. I have a bit more room to dress under if necessary, also have enough pockets to pack away your stuff, but the outside pockets are not 100% waterproof but any way it has 4 more which is. Service from Sportsbikeshop is excellent as always I received the item the next day after purchase. Thanks for reading and I hope it can help you to decide.

Excellent jacket

Well put together with quality materials. It is also a very comfortable jacket. The sizing comes up a little on the small size and you should consider going one size up. It goes well with the Patron gore-tex trousers. I have not given it a rain test but am doing the NC500 in September so I am sure there will be an opportunity! If there is a negative I am a little disappointed that at the price point a back protector is an optional extra. I have a D30 level 2 back protector from a Furygan leather jacket that perfectly fits the Ares jacket. Service / delivery from SBS was excellent.
