The Alpinestars Andes V3 is a next-generation adventure-touring ladies jacket, featuring 100% Drystar waterproofing, high levels of breathability and abrasion-resistance.
This formidable yet lightweight jacket is made from advanced poly-fabric textile, integrated with Alpinestars' proprietary Drystar membrane that is impervious to water and allows perspiration for complete all-ride comfort. A detachable long-sleeve thermal liner (100g body & 80g sleeves) allows you to adapt to the outside temperature, while a new, direct ventilation system (DVS) consists of two zippered air vents at the chest that allows cool air to enter the jacket and exhaust hot air out the back. The premium YKK main zipper provides a secure and convenient closure, and reflective detailing on the front and back provide night visibility.
Removable Nucleon Flex Plus armour at the elbow and shoulders provide internal impact protection, with compartments at the chest and back to fit additional chest and back armour (sold separately) and the jacket is able to perfectly accommodate the Tech-Air 5 vest. The elbows and lower arm are textured with additional material for enhanced abrasion-resistance, and the sleeves pre-contoured with stretch panels at the elbow for freedom of movement.
Velcro adjustments at the lower arm and waist provide a customised, agreeable fit, while an integrated soft edge collar and 3D mesh interior provide long-distance comfort. The jacket also boasts a plethora of pockets, including two external zippered chest pockets, cargo pockets, a large external utility pocket on the lower back, internal pockets and a waterproof wallet pocket to safely secure your belongings.
