Excellent for Spring - Fall riding.
June 06, 2013(Ames, IA)
I am a particularly small rider (5'3"/130 lbs) but this jacket fit very well. The zip-out liner has excellent wind-buffeting and is easy to remove/install. The only criticism I have is the durability. I have only had it for about a month now and the fibers are starting to fray a bit, particularly along the zipper. However, this could be considered normal wear and tear anyways. Overall, excellent ventilation, great wind-buffeting, but a bit thin/cold. Perfect for Spring - Fall season riding.
Great Fair to Hot Weather Riding Jacket

I am a shortie: 5'3" / 130 lbs. Purchased the Small and it fit incredibly well. The adjustments around the waist, along with the form-fitted shape and design of the jacket, it fits in incredibly well. Feels very solid and feels great. The zip out liner is genius for blocking wind, yet you will still want to wear some thermal layering underneath for added warmth for colder rides (below 55F). Excellent ventilation available and lots of pockets for hiding things.
Love this Jacket!

This jacket is absolutely perfect for the summer! The wind liner makes the jacket comfortable down to around 60 degrees F in my opinion. This jacket breaths AMAZING, I live in Georgia and we usually see a lot of 100F+ days during the summer and the way this jacket flows air is just great. I will say when stopped for longer than a few seconds it does get hot, but that is the same with any jacket. Riding in this jacket is almost like riding in a t-shirt (but much safer).
Overall great jacket

Couldn't get the exact right fit but the M ran close enough. Very comfortable except for the back is a tiny bit tight. Very breathable jacket with inserts at the shoulders and elbows. Jacket has great look to it and it seems pretty durable.
Great overall jacket!

Just received this jacket a few days ago and I love it. I have used it in cold and warm weather. I'm 5"7, 145 pounds and went with the medium and it fits like a dream. Perfect length and a snug, but not tight fit. With the liner it keeps me warm in 55 degree weather. Anything under that I still have to wear a couple long sleeve shirts underneath. Haven't tested it in 75+ degree weather but im sure it will be warm like any other jacket.
bigger than other a* gear...

First, thank you motorcyclesuperstore for letting me return too much crap before going to all alpinestars. This jacket is awesome, will vent really well and liner is easy to put in. Had to send back XXL for XL as it was way too baggy which was shocking for a*. My other 2x [48us] fits perfect, but its leather. Also switched colors, the white on the cuffs looks destined to stay dirty on the blk/ylw/white one so went white black and red.
GREAT OVERALL JACKET

Just past the bank, and its 96 degrees... This jacket worked. Its is vented really well, and I could feel air movement throughout. It sucked when I stopped, but anything would... ITS HOT! Anyway, jacket fit just a touch big based on the other Alpinestars jacket I have... I'd definately recommend this jacket. It also has a super liner in case it should start to rain, or if it got cool... Maybe in another month or two...
This Jacket Is Awesome...... at the right temperature

I bought this jacket for summer riding obviously and I love all the features it has. The mesh flows so much air its like your not wearing a jacket at all! Throw the liner in and you have a jacket that can be used around 50 degree and up weather. I take the liner out at about 80 degrees and up. Fit is right on, I'm 6'0" and weigh 145 lbs and I got a medium to give me more length in the arms and its perfect. Black/white finish is very clean looking.
Perfect for hot weather riding!

I bought this because my leather Alpinestars jacket - even though it's ventilated - is a bit too much for the hottest days. Great jacket, great air flow and it looks terrific - another winner from Alpinestars.
