Great lightweight protection I bought this jacket with no illusion that it afforded me equal protection to a set of armored leathers. I needed very lightweight armor to wear when riding my dual sport off road on trails. I wear this under a jersey and it works perfect. Much better than a dedicated off road roost guard. The construction is solid and the zippers are great. I'm 5'9", 180 lbs and the large fits perfect. It is very lightweight and breathes very well. Considering I'm on Guam, where it's constantly at or above the upper 80s with high humidity, even a textile jacket will overheat you. This works well under a large shirt and has saved my elbows and shoulders in several light crashes on the trail. It shipped super fast and I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again should this one become damaged. January 5, 2015
Not For Daily Commute The jacket offers good protections with minimal bulkiness and nice air flow but due to several missing options i believe your money can be spent better elsewhere. 1. The sleeves are pretty hard to stick your arms through and when you do it has no reinforced tabs to pull on which forces you to grab onto the flimsy mesh material. 2. Sleeve/arm protection did not seem like it would stay in place during a fall due to the absence of fastening straps and I also found them to be uncomfortable. 3. With no waist/hip strap it felt like it would ride up or bunch up after several hours of use and it did not seem secure. 4. Lack of features for a $200+ dollar item. November 8, 2014
Alpinestars Bionic Pro Jacket This Jacket is just what I was looking for, light to intermediate protection, extremely breathable, great for the summer, and last but not least it looks great. I'm 6'5" 200 lbs and wear a XL, it fits well. I admit I'm a little too tall for it, but a XXL I think would have been to loose around the stomach. Highly recommend this jacket. August 11, 2014
Great airflow Great summer jacket, air flow is unbeatable, but there is a trade off of protection, looks awesome though July 28, 2014
Awesome product. I actually bought this to wear in conjunction with a leather jacket for long distance interstate riding and large city commuting on a sportbike. I figured that the pads are CE rated, and throwing on a leather jacket over it ended up costing me a fraction of a lot of pre-padded jackets while offering the same level of protection. The ultra low profile makes it easy to wear under jackets and other semi-loose clothing, and the mesh construction keeps it from getting too hot. True to size, easy to put on and take off, and very comfortable. It's a motorcross shirt, so the pads are designed for impact protection. I believe this makes it good for high traffic commuting, and I feel like I would be well protected in a low speed collision if I were to bounce off a car or a curb. also, the chest protector has saved me some grief from flying debris on the interstate. On the flipside, I feel like the armor would get torn off the mesh shirt if I went into a slide, so I don't recommend wearing it on the street without stacking leather or some other kind of abrasion resistance on top of it. Great product, and you can't argue with the price tag. Definitely recommend it. May 19, 2014
Awesome Armour I like Alpinestars, they make good stuff. And that gear is one of them. Thank you Revzilla for good prices. April 15, 2014
Minimal protection. You get what you pay for. Yes its very light and not bulky, but it offers minimal protection. What is the point of an armor jacket if its just a few thin pieces of foam which are not even CE rated for impact??? I have Bionic 2 jacket, and recently bought and reviewed (didn't like it either) their Bionic Tech jacket. Looking to minimize the bulk of the Bionic 2 a bit, but this jacket is definitely not the way to do that. Don't waste your money on this and pay a bit more and get their CE rated armor jackets. Those will have proper armor, to save you in case of a crash, which is the hole point of an armor jacket, to crash in it, not to look stylish. Again, all armor are just thin pieces of foam. They might absorb some of the impact at street speeds, but I wouldn't go out on a highway in this. April 12, 2014
Awesome summer jacket. Great price. I was in the market for a summer jacket to replace my old speed and strength and I found the Alpinestars Bionic Pro. It has great protection and is very streamlined. Perfect for riding in a hot climate like Barbados! February 25, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Krystoffer A: When I am in the city, I always wear my denim Jackets, but they provide no impact or abrasion protection, even though I'm cruising a mere 25 mph. So I wanted to wear this slim fit protection under my jackets so I can look styling yet be protected in the city environment. Feb 15, 2015
Andrey S: Looks very good, good protection, can wear with any clothes and in any season. Feb 12, 2015
Allen M: I wanted to try a thin undershirt armor. For my offroad riding style and needs this will work. Fits nicely, I wish the back piece was removable, I really don't need one as I always carry a backpack or a waterpack. So I removed it and I like it better that way. The unit looks like it will last for a long time and it's not too warm, I actually took it on a first ride on 110 degrees weather and it wasn't too bad. Happy with the purchase. Sep 23, 2014
Mark R: I was looking for a source of protection similar to what you find in armored jackets that I could wear under a jersey in hot weather while trail and adventure riding. The Alpinestars Bionic gives me the protection that you would normally find in a jacket (elbow, shoulder, back, plus chest). I've been impressed with the robustness of the mesh material and the build quality. It's cool and comfortable and makes a great source of armor under my Klim Traverse jacket as well when the weather get bad. Jun 1, 2014
Jeton a: Comfortable n looks good n good protection for just cruzing around Apr 20, 2014

Sed A: Hi Prajit,
Alpinestar website doesn't says anything about CE for Pro Jacket only for Tech one.
is it possible for you to provide a link or a quote from Alpinestars about Certification for back on Pro Jacket ? Nov 27, 2013
Prajit L: Hi Sed,

I just emailed support at alpinestars dot com asking about CE certification regarding the Bionic Pro jacket, my post was the reply I got from an Alpinestars tech. I had the same issue of not being able to find any documentation anywhere; all I have is that one reply from their tech support. Sorry I can't be of any more help. Nov 27, 2013
Sed A: Thanks! Dec 11, 2013

John F: Remember that this jacket's armour is not CE rated, it used something called K-Resin that for some reason means it is not CE rated. I just recently purchased this jacket, I'm an adventure travel motorcyclist and took a change and bought it. I think it is great! It is comfortable and thought it is not intended for road use I will be wearing it all summer! Our course this is only my opinion but I feel that this jacket will protect me better in a crash than my other road rated armor because it fits so closely to my body and does not rotate around! In my other jacket I feel that if I was to take a spill that the armor might not take the impact correctly because might not be in the right place as it is armor in an jacket rather than armor sewn into a mesh shell that is tight to your body.

After getting this in the mail I will always wear this piece or something similar as I feel that the armor moves with my body better than armor placed in a bulkier jacket.

Mark R: I've used the Bionic Pro for several rides now but I can't speak to how well it will hold up in a highway accident (fortunately). I'd rate the armor capability somewhere between a full armored ballistic jacket and the protection you get from an armored riding jacket. It's armor is similar in size to a riding jacket and it will stay put better than the jacket armor in an accident but the pads are certainly smaller than what you'll find on the likes of a Bionic 2 and a Leatt Adventure. I had a Leatt and found it too bulky and heavy. The Bionic Pro covers the basic key areas (chest, back, elbows, and shoulders). The shoulders could be a little larger and leave the collarbone area exposed but I feel they are adequate. It's well made and the base vented material is much more robust than other ballistic jackets I've seen. It's very comfortable and cool. Jun 16, 2014

Greg A: I can give you what I've experienced with the is jacket. It fits well and is comfortable. The armor protection is very good. I have worn it on the highway and would be comfortable in a crash. It will definitely work better than just a jacket with no protection at all.
I use mine mostly for off road riding, you can also look at Knox armor if you are looking for something different.
I would say I'm happy with this armor and would be sufficiently protected in a crash and slide.

brayden m: I high sided going about 40 mph down a hill as a result of a mechanical failure , bike landed on my ankle/leg and we slid about 50 ft down the hill , I got up not a scratch or bruise on me honest to god. Just my ankle was sore for a few weeks but nothing I didn't walk off and ride home from. Just get a size that fits correctly , meaning snug enough to stay put . Good luck and ride safe Jun 16, 2014

Brandon G: I haven't been in a crash with it, but as far as lower speeds I feel as if the protection would hold up fine, as far as highway speeds I think it would do its job but would get shredded up, with protection it doesn't feel as good as say a leather jacket, but I do love how well it breathes, especially since I live in Florida Jun 16, 2014

Fabricio B asked: Hi, I was checking for some summer jackets, and I cross with this. I wonder if this kind/type of jackets are meant to be use alone, or they have to be used under another jacket or riding suit?. I'm riding a yamaha r6 2012. Thanks Feb 12, 2014

Greg A: Fabricio,

If you are looking for armor protection for riding this is the stuff. It goes on very easily and zips right up. If you wear an under armor shirt or something thin that breaths you'll be fine. It looks good both over a shirt or underneath a jacket. I've worn it all day riding motox and had no issues at all. I feel protected and the few knock arounds I have had resulted in no injuries. I don't think I would wear it just against my skin for very long only because it may chafe a little bit.

Definitely a good purchase. I wouldn't have anything else.

brayden m: I've worn it alone and under an aplinestar jacket . It's fine alone. I actually took a descent high side two weeks ago and slid 30 ft down a hill with right foot pinned under bike , was wearing the bionic pro jacket , not a scratch on me . Was very impressed , foot was little banged up but had on tcx xrap boots that saved me big time . Everyone told me the mesh won't hold up and the pads won't stay in place but get a snug fit and from experience like I said not a scratch on me Feb 12, 2014

Rick G: Fabricio,

I intend to use this on our cross country dual sport ride both by itself and under a motocross jersey.

I use full racing leathers for track days on my Honda 600RR.

A couple of my friends got the other model with a much larger spine pad--this might be better for regular street riding on a sportbike

Fabricio B: Hi rick. I have my own leather racing suit for track day. What I was asking is if I'm able to use it in street riding conditions or travel with this "jacket" instied of a traditional perforated summer leather jacket. Using a t-shirt or some first skin clothes underneath. Would I be able to so that??? Thanks Feb 12, 2014
Graham S: I use mine either by itself, under a tshirt, long sleeve shirt, or underneath a ski jacket when it gets cold enough. It's nice to have the flexibility. It's kind of itchy the first couple times you use it but wears in nicely. Hope that helps. Feb 12, 2014

Fabricio B: Thanks graham. So you are saying to use it as a first skin protection with something over it and no with something underneath, like an actual jacket right? Thanks Feb 12, 2014
