Hey, everyone! The weather is getting dimmer more regularly now, so I’ve been looking around a lot for decent kits to get a rider through the typical Autumn and Winter weather scenarios. We’ve had a lot of Alpinestars gear come in and as the proud owner of a pair of the Alpinestars Roam 2 Boots, I know that their products are the real deal for great quality when it comes to long lasting weather protection.
So I decided to bring one of our ladies Jackets into the spotlight- The Alpinestars Stella T-Jaws WP Jacket! It’s a sport-tour cut jacket with a sleek, aerodynamic style while focusing on superb weather versatility underneath as well as safety. It’s a really great ladies Alpinestars jacket.
The jacket is made from a poly fabric outer shell with areas of lightweight 450D and 600D reinforcements in critical areas. This makes a safe and sturdy shell that is designed to keep the weight of the jacket down while still being flexible and plenty strong enough to save your skin in an accident.
It has great options for the weather too. The thermal liner inside the jacket is detachable, so you can keep it in to stay warm on cold rides or remove it for a little more room to breathe on warmer days. Also for the warmer days, the jacket has vents on the shoulders that can be unzipped and opened for the best air circulation through the jacket. The jacket is also waterproof with a waterproof internal pocket for keeping what valuables you put in there safe. Just make sure those vent pockets are zipped closed for the best waterproofing results.
It comes with elbow and shoulder armour already installed, unfortunately it doesn’t come with a back protector but you can still purchase the Nucleon Back Protector seperately to go into the back protector pocket. There’s even a compartment for a ladies chest protector, so you have the option to really maximise your impact protection. Chest protector compartments are a feature I’m noticing in a lot more jackets lately and I think they’re a great idea.
The jacket has also been made for comfort as well as safety, the sleeves of the jacket are pre-curved so breaking the jacket in isn’t going to be as much of a chore and strain your arms on a ride. And there are select areas of stretch paneling for better freedom of movement, giving you plenty of flex in places like the elbows.
There are loads of extras in the jacket as well, adjust-ability for the best fit to you, a connection zipper for joining with Alpinestars pants, integtrated reflective graphics for being seen in low-light and more. Alpinestars are well known for excellent quality and long-lasting gear. This jacket will serve a multi-weather rider on their morning and evening commutes and tour bikers admirably.
Thanks for reading, everyone! Until next time!
