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.

Great warm and waterproof jacket, however could be better.
I bought this jacket and patron matching trousers from infinity motorcycles at the motorcycle live, Birmingham n.e.c. last year 2017. I have been caught in downpours a couple of times and the waterproofing kept me 100% dry. My only criticisms are the cuffs could do with either more velcro to get a tighter fit or zip closings and the outer pockets are useless if you are unexpectedly caught out in the rain as I have been. Anything in those four main outer pockets gets absolutely soaked. Yes there is a small handy waterproof pocket on the cuff which works well and a waterproof inner pocket under the storm flap, but if you have anything in the other pockets and aren't expecting rain and get caught out they will get soaked. It is a shame as this is a great jacket and with re-designed outer pockets with stormflaps I would have given it 5 stars.
