Great jacket
28 February 2024 by Peter L
Really easy to adjust for a comfortable fit with the velcro stars and fasteners. Enough material in the cuffs to go under or over gloves as the needs arise. Pockets easy to access with gloves on and collar is soft and comfortable. The reflective and fluorescent colours are also a benefit in low light and bad weather conditions. Not tried in a downpour yet, but expect it to be as good as my last RST jacket

Excellent Jacket

Jacket is exactly as described and keeps you very warm and dry. The size guiding is spot on just the sleeves are a bit long would recommend this jacket to anyone. Excellent quality
Perfect Allrounder
10 January 2024 by TG
Being an owner of various RST jackets for many years I decided to upgrade my Alpha 4.
The added features of the Alpha 5 are a removable thermal liner (gillet) and a full connection zip - both of these features make it more versatile for more all year use.

Fit is true to size for me but would not have room for bulky under layers (I'm 5 foot 11 inch, 36 inch waist and 15 stone. With a 44 inch chest measurement I'm right on the border of L/XL but found the XL too baggy around the upper chest area).

Thermal liner seems quite lightweight so may need additional layer if riding in very low temperatures.

I find it very comfortable although agree with other customer reviews that the sleeves are just a bit too long.

I use a back protector from another RST jacket.

I've always worn a rain over-jacket so cannot vouch for its heavy wet weather qualities (in drizzle /short light showers it's fine).

Overall, a perfect jacket for me and great value for money (and AA rated).

Well made, warm - I wanted something with a good rating for my first jacket, this fit the bill perfectly. Cheap, AA rated and fits great.
Nice Jacket
08 November 2023 by Terry C
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.
Rst jacket and trousers

Top jacket

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
Extra long sleeves
07 November 2023 by Michael W
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.
Great value

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.

Spot On RST Jacket

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
Good for the money

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
