The best moto jacket I ever owned. size 56 fits me perfect I'm 6'1" 183 lbs. Leather is thick but soft and quality is higher than any other jackets I had (Alpinestars, Dainese)
Thumbs up. Definitely recommend.
I haven't done a review before but after using these boots a number of times, I feel they deserve one.
Very comfortable and very easy to break in. But where the boots shine above all..... The buckles! OMG! They are so easy to get fastened. Just this alone justifies every penny of what the boots cost. No more frustration over not getting a buckle fastened.
Can't really speak on durability but, I feel they will hold up just as well as my tech 3's. Which should last quite a while.
I do NOT have a world of experience. I've been riding for four years. These are my second pair of boots; the first was a different brand.
The Alpinestar Roam 2 boots fit true to size; just a little tight at first, which is right for leather boots that you have to break-in.
Shortly after getting them, I was confident enough that I wore them on a 1700 mile tour; 8-10 hr/day. No problems, at all - comfortable, and supportive all day long.
I read the comments that said they made shifting hard. I found that I have to point my toe more consciously when I get ready to shift up. But, after a week, that's now just natural, no problem.
I was caught in an hour long thunderstorm, complete with big winds, hail, and massive downpours. My KLIM pants and Alpinestar Roam 2 boots keep me warm and dry from the waist down.:)) I need a better jacket. :(
I've only had the boots for a couple of months, so I can't rate durability. But, from what I've seen so far, they are well made and SHOULD last just fine.
Ordered the Stella SP-8 in a size small. They are VERY tight. I have to have someone help me pull them on. Stitching on one of the straps also started to break due to the amount pulling needed to get gloves on. I have tried on other small alpine star gloves and have determined that this is a super narrow glove.
