Very nice jacket and definitely very stylish. I'm 6 feet and 210, wear an XL top in most everything. This fits perfect!!! Came with chest cushions and a soft back protector. Great elbow protection too. Good deal for $351. I have long monkey arms and they reach all the way to my wrist!
I own a pair of lace-up Alpinestars short boots and wanted the extra protection of a full length boot. I was looking forward to these but when they arrived my feet were swimming in them so, in my opinion, they run big even if following the size chart. But I didn't return them for a smaller pair because I could tell that they would still be large for my foot even if the length was correct. They don't fit snugly over the top of my foot and and I don't want my feet moving around in the boot while riding. This, of course, might be the nature of a zip up boot design so I think I'll just hang on to my trusty lace-up style boot.
Too bad that everything was good except the stiching. One strap ripped out putting it on after about the 5th time. Only hado it about 5 months so had to send it back to Alpine Stars. They sent it to their sown called Tailors and I got it back sewn all the way through to the inside lining. Something I was going to have myou sister do but she could not make it look like original and to send it back. Has a 1 year warranty but not worth the high price of the vendor which should reflect some quality. It's just a name for junk coming from overseas that you can find better for less money. Shabby construction.Ripoff for a star product. Blah blah blah!
I wear an extra small and ordered an extra small. The gloves fit perfectly and are comfortable. I wanted gloves that will provide maximum protection in the event of a crash and from the looks and feel of these gloves they will do that better than any other gloves that I looked at. I did hesitate the price, but when I compared that to how much a broken or torn up hand would cost in doctor bills and pain, I decided they were worth the extra cost.
