The Heritage of Alpinestars
Alpinestars take their name from the Italian mountain flower Stella Alpina, known to grow in the mountains around Sante Mazzarolo’s home town of Asolo, in northern Italy. Stella Alpina, means, well, “Alpine Star” in English. They have carried their origins with them proudly as they have grown and developed into a unique company dedicated to really high quality motorcycle clothing.
They began by making hiking boots and ski boots, branched out into making motocross boots and road racing boots, and from there became one of the most well-regarded manufacturers of motorcycle clothing in Europe.
Never content to rest on their laurels, Alpinestars have taken engineering inspiration from every spot they tough, all of which has helped their motorcycle clothing range cater for every conceivable need. From Dale Earnhardt Jr’s striking Alpinestars gloves in NASCAR to Jenson Button’s Racing boots and gloves, these drivers help inform and shape Alpinestars’ motorcycle range with fresh and innovative insights.

I'm now on my second year of wearing this jacket for all-weather commuting and general riding. It's, overall, an "excellent" jacket. Although, not perfect. It's basically a bubble that shields you from the elements very effectively, in all my time using this jacket - I've *never* had water come through it. I've seen some very adverse weather challenge this thing, and it holds strong endlessly. It's very warm, fully waterproof/windproof and it's very comfortable. It also has loads of pockets - however, the outer pockets of this jacket *aren't* waterproof. If you want to keep your wallet and phone dry, you must keep them in the inside pockets. And in bad weather, this basically just means that the outside pockets are a bit useless. That's why it's not five stars. A minor reason, however - and I'd still fully recommend this item to everyone. It is great for all-season, serious, riders who don't want to spend £700+ for Rukka Goretex stuff.
Well worth the money. I paid the full price though!
Only one small problem is that the front ventilation zips catch on the inner lining, so you have to prepare the jacket for warmer riding with it off. Have had the drystar winter the gloves for 4 years with no water ingress so it made buying this jacket a no brainer when my old Rukka gave up on me after only 2 years.
