Recently purchased this jacket and am very happy with it. I'm 5'9/160lb and size 42 fits perfectly.

I'm 6'1 bout 220lbs ordered a sixe 48(X-Large) snug and fits like a jacket should, really comfortable. Every protective piece in the jacket elbow/forearm/shoulder protectors are formed perfectly no adjusting needed, Im seriously at a loss of words. I love the jacket only thing I hate is the price but you get what you pay for 100% leather, comfort, and serious protection. Worth every penny, highly recommended even if you're a casual rider you'll never regret it.

I ride daily in Florida. I average 800-1,000 miles a month. I use this jacket every single day. It's a great jacket in every way. Beware, this is not a perforated jacket, so if you plan on being in heavy traffic this jacket will BE HOT! So if you ride daily in heavy stop and go traffic, maybe go lighter. Perfect for me though. My only real complaint is the alpinestars zipper cover broke within first month. Also had a couple loose threads that I took lighter too.
Fits Like a Glove, but it's a Jacket

5'9, 145 lbs, long arms; Size 40 US fits alright except the sleeves are a bit tight. I wear a size 38 slim jacket taken in at the waist and this supposed 40 doesn't have room for a medium sweatshirt underneath. There is ventilation under the arms. Between 50 and 85 degrees its performance is outstanding. If > 85 F, move > 100 MPH. Paired with Alpinestars Trackpants it looks pretty cool, but zipper length is not matching (jacket is larger). It has broken in well and fits much better now.
Best Looking Jacket with Lots of Protection!

This jacket is by far the best one I have ever worn!! I love the colors and the quality of the leather!, Has great armor built in and lots of options for additional pieces. Does get a bit hot in the summer time. I feel very protected. Leather easily wipes clean with a damp cloth. Gets a bit chilly riding at nite. I made sure to purchase one that would fit a hooded sweatshirt underneath. I am 6'2" and weigh 188lb I purchased a size 48 but wish I had gotten the 50 for a bit more room.
What a jacket worth every penny

This is my Third leather jacket and I swear this jacket is the best by far!!! You can't go wrong with this jacket!!! I use this Jacket with my leather pants at Brainerd MN all day and I tell you when you're going that fast in and out of corners that speed hump comes in handy. Jacket does get kind of warm but when you are doing 100+ the jacket cools very well. HIGHLY recommended for the peps who don't like the one piece suit.

I'm 5'9 155lbs and I had to return the 42us for a 44. It's still pretty snug but feels good with the matching pants that zip together. Buy the add on back protector and get rid of the foam pad they have included. Lots of pockets which is good when wearing the track pants that have none.

Best jacket I've owned. A-stars haven’t let me down. As others have said the back protector is a piece of foam and needs to be upgraded. This jacket is not a summer jacket it is not perforated. I am looking at getting the GP Plus pants to go with this.
Satisfied with A-stars

I like the jacket, the quality is great, as others have said the stock back-pad is a joke. It is made out of foam but can and should be upgraded. I would not recommend this as a summer jacket because it is not perforated (I'm in SC). I am looking at pairing the jacket with the GP Plus pants.

Super nice, very well put together. Nice finishing touches on it. The only issue I have with the jacket is the fit. I am normally a size 42 so I ended up ordering a size 46 and it was still too small so my right size would of been 50 to be perfect but other than that its awesome. I get a lot of compliments. And I would definitely deal with Motorcycle Superstore again anytime. Great Business and super-fast shipping!
