I tried some Alpinestar stuff on when I went to VIR.

I liked the quality and the fit. I don't own one though. Just really liked the looks and feel.
I have a pair of their gloves that I LOVE. Fit good and feel thicker. They sinch down tight too.
I almost got a one piece from them. But Vanson won! At any rate, check their website

I've got a Dyno jacket that I got with my R1. It's nice supple leather with good quality stitching but I don't like the armor as much as say, Joe Rocket. The JR stuff is thicker and hence stiffer but offers better armor and more coverage. Back protectors in the Alpine Stars dyno jacket is non-existant..it doesn't have one at all!. At least JR pretends to put a back protector in theirs albeit useless. Loudon Motorsport has a handful of Alpine Stars jackets and pants in stock.


PAY UP LEE!

I've never had a lack of self confidence I wasn't sure I could overcome.

I have the V-4 Leather Jacket. I like it, its a nice fit and style. But not as thick as my Joe Rocket. Also have the Alpinestars Leather Track Pants....still beaking those in. I looked everywhere trying to find someone who carries Alpinestars Jackets and had no luck. So I finally just ordered it online.

has anyone heard anything about this alpinestars jacket. the SMX. the armor is external around the elbows which makes it pretty unique and looks awesome also. their one piece SMX suit looks even better.

Ummmm....Sacrelicious!!
Hmm, beer. The cause of, and solution to all of life's problems!
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
