Verified Customer Reviews for RST Alpha 5 CE Textile Jacket
Nice, well made jacket. For me the sleeves a tiny bit too long but otherwise very comfortable. Overall a tiny bit heavy but I guess the safety armour contributes to that. Very pleased with purchase - for the price.
What a great jacket, I've got the trousers also. Really warm comfy and waterproof.
I was looking for a new jacket for the wetter months, whilst this very competitively priced it is a quality jacket. Even in the recent stormy weather it performed brilliant.
Also kept a me warm without the liner. Sizing true to size no need to go up a size
If you are on a budget for decent all weather jacket look no further
Excellent service as usual from Sportsbikeshop. Only issue with the jacket is that the sleeves are too long causing gloves to not to fit quite right. Shame. I'll probably cut them off by some 5cm and stitch up the ends.
I've been a fan of RST clothing for some time now and this jacket is just right. Warm, comfy and waterproof, I've had jackets 3 times the price that were not as geed.
Super product at a fair price.
Great service from Sportsbikeshop and all the staff l dealt with
Using the size guide online, I ordered the Large RST Alpha 5 Jacket in Black/Blue. Have to say, when I tried it on, the fit was perfect, with plenty of adjustment to suit most riders. Warm and comfortable on the road, with good flexibility in the arms due to the gilet lining having no sleeves. Great VFM
Got it for going back and forward to work so far so good keeps me dry and is comfortable. The jacket don't come with back protection in so you will have to spend a extra £30 on that just something to consider if like me you got it on a budget
Well made ..I'm medium build so went 1 size up large and fits nicely. A good jacket nice temp on a cool summer morning without the lining so should be good for autumn winter. And delivered next day so v fast service. Tvm
Decent jacket. Dependent on your view its either got plenty of Velcro or too much. All openings and pockets are covered in the stuff including the full length of the zip.
Adjustable waist strap and air vents that do let in some draft on warmer days.
Not the warmest jacket - the removable lining does not have sleeves so not as warm as my previous jacket, but less bulky because of it.
Plenty of pockets and waterproof so far.
Awesome jacket true fit size nice light jacket with maximum protection. Definitely worth it.
Good jacket that fits well at a good price and a great service from sbs as usual
Good value for the price
Smart, comfortable, warm & dry. It looks built to last. Couldn't ask for more.
Nice and warm with the removable gilet, and cool on hotter days. Good price too!
I ordered this jacket after doing my research. I read Lots of reviews. The jacket sizing is exactly right and the jacket is a perfect fit. It is very comfortable and waterproof. I would not hesitate to recommend to others.
As a new rider I had no idea what to look for in a jacket. And after going through many options I choose this one. And very happy that I did.
Easy to install a back protector, vents are easy to find yet discreet, perfect length on the torso.
Only downside for me was the sleeve length, but being short, that is always a problem with most coats/jackets.
Overall great purchase and very speedy delivery, less than 24 hours from purchase I had it on and riding to work.
Got this jacket in April 2023. I am 42ins chest, jacket fits perfectly, very good quality, warm, and very good value for money. I would recommend SportsBikeShop to anyone, cannot fault there products.

Waterproof commuter jacket with CE certified armour and removable thermal gilet
It's no wonder that the RST motorcycle clothing range is now one of the most popular ranges of bike kit in the UK. Their continued investment in racing, with a particular focus on BSB, has meant a constant development of product, which has translated directly to their road range. With the help of some of the biggest names in the BSB paddock, such as Tommy Hill, John Kirkham and Stuart Easton, RST have pushed the boundaries of what can be delivered through a brand that remains amazingly good value for money.
It also helps that the Derbyshire based design team are passionate about what they do; rigorously testing all RST clothing themselves. The team insist on riding all year round, despite the British weather, in order to put the RST textile range through its paces, and the fact that the team are keen track day enthusiasts, provides helpful real world testing of the RST leather range too. Their continued passion for design and innovation is highly apparent in this year's range and when you add to the mix the constant stream of positive feedback from our customers, it's easy to see why we have always covered the entire range of RST motorcycle clothing, and will continue to do so.
