Alpinestars Andes V2 Drystar Trousers
The Alpinestars Andes V2 Drystar Trousers are a waterproof, abrasion-resistant, all-purpose jean ideal for touring or commuting. The natural successor to the original Andes, the Alpinestars V2 adopts the popular style and effective construction of the Andes, while improving upon the Andes’ ventilation and protective qualities, making this essential for modern riding.
The Alpinestars Andes’ design was already flawless in its performance, with a plethora of external pockets, reflective panels and a waterproof membrane to boot. What sets the Andes V2 apart, however, is its newly developed Direct Ventilation System: zippered chest intakes air and exhaust backports allow for internal climate control and optimal rider comfort. The innovative system also integrates a concealed shock cord ensuring the vent remains exposed in whatever position you’re in a while riding.
Constructed of reinforced multi-fabrics and panels, the Alpinestars Andes V2 incorporates the latest impact-resistant technology essential for modern riding. Removable CE certified protectors at the knees and poly-foam padding cover your lower body and reinforced polymer-printed at critical points of the hips and knees absorb shock upon impact

Integrated with Alpinestars’ own developed waterproof liner Drystar for all-around weatherproofing, the trousers also incorporate a removable thermal liner that runs along the legs, ensuring effective heat retention. Accordion stretch panel at the knees and pre-contoured legs allow flexibility and improved riding performance, and an internal waist zipper allows for connection with the Andes Drystar V2 jacket.

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.

Waterproof and comfortable
Despite what the other reviewers say, I have had mine for 2 years and although I only wear them when it is cold or wet I have always found them to be waterproof. None of the seams have failed and the vents work well as long as you are on the move.
Poor trouser. Poor me.
Used these for commuting. Not waterproof. Always arrived at work looking like i had wet myself. Stitching undone around the waistband. Feels cheap. Not impressed.
Very disappointed, after only 10 uses the seams gone on the left knee Leaving it frayed and open.
Fast wear and tear
Been using this trouser to commute for the past year, time 20 mins one way and it's worn out. In rain is pretty useless, after 10-15 mins of rain and you have a patch on your underwear. The wear and tear is fast on the inner layers' lower leg area and bottom area. Been using the heat liner throughout winter time and it was doing a good job but again the wear and tear is pretty fast on it too. Summer time, despite having large vents on legs it doesn't do much, feels like you are with a plastic bag on your legs. Not recommending it. 2* because of the option to have extra long legs (I'm 6'4") and the high waist on the back.
