Alpinestars Celer Leather Jacket (Size 54 Only)
While I have not worn it out yet, I can share my own personal measurements. I am 5'7" 208lbs with a 46" chest, 36 waist, and 33-34" arms and I got the size 58. I am glad I didn't go down a size, this jacket is tight around my chest but the armor sits nicely and in place on my shoulders and elbows. It has a very aggressive shape and wants to keep you there. I love it and cannot wait to finally wear it.

Love the style of the 2015 Celer
I wanted this jacket back when it was full price but couldn't justify spending $600 on a jacket. So when this went on closeout, I had to jump on it. Glad that I did. I love the style and fit. I recently lost 40 lbs and am proud to be able to wear a race-fit jacket. I feel so protected in this. It's a little funny that I wear this on a Ninja 300 but I am getting a ZX6R next year so it's all good!
I am now 5' 9" and 160 pounds (no carbs for a few months really really works by the way). I got a size 48 and was worried it would be too small as I fit into the size 50 on the sizing chart. But it fit perfectly. I actually love that it's a little small because they usually wear in slightly and I think it's perfect. The arms are a touch too short but not too bad.
The jacket itself is great and feels like your wearing body armor. The race hump in the back makes me feel like it would protect my neck in case the unthinkable occurs. The only thing I don't like is the zippers on the wrists. I wish there was a way to lock them zipped because sometimes they start to unzip themselves. That's probably because it is just a little too small for my arms.

Love this jacket
Can't say enough to how pleased I am with this jacket. I'm 5'11 205lbs broad chest and shoulders. Got a size 46 EU. It might be a little long for me, but im kinda broad for my height. Any smaller and I'd probably have trouble getting it off. Well infact I've sweated a little in it and had to get help to get it off. Wish it had a removable liner between myself and the leather that i could wash, but that would probably add to air flow restriction. Jacket on and on the bike its perfect as far as fit and body posture.
Love the craftsmanship. Zippers are solid. Stretch panels flexible but tough, stitching is solid. Its a little heavy but I feel safe with it on. I have some 2014 a*'s tech 10 mx boots. I think the quality of this jacket is better than my tech 10s if that makes since.
Love the styling. Got the all black version and looks BAD.... Get tons off compliments.
My only complaints are that i thought i needed a jacket with a thermal liner for winter. One of the reasons i went with this one over the gp pro(???) Cant remember if thats what it was called. Anyways I've ridden for 45min in 40 degree weather with no liner and was fine. Ive ridden in 65-70 degree weather with no liner and sweated enough that I couldnt get the jacket off by myself. Wasn't uncomfortable while riding though (all vents open) Last and biggest gripe would be that the shoulder pads are tough if not impossible to get in positions symmetrical shoulder to shoulder. I am a little ocd with stuff like that. Im sure it is because they wanted us to have the option to take them out. So if I'm gonna be riding hard leave'em in. if I'm going to shoot pool i take'em out.
That being said I may have to buy a summer jacket I live in Houston, but I would buy this jacket again because its that badass! Must have piece... Its my favorite piece of gear and I got some nice stuff. So there you go...

I bought this jacket the day I bought my motorcycle and honestly, no regrets at all. It was a bit heavy but, it's something you get used to. I highly recommend this product to everyone. The airflow is amazing and the material is durable.

Okay its not bullet proof per say but I feel extremely confident in this jackets ability to protect me should I end up going down. I also feel that this jacket with its adjustable air flow abilities can stretch over many seasons. I live in Phoenix and wear this jacket every month of the year excluding August and September when temps frequently reach 115, I have a Joe Rocket Phoenix for those months. If you are on the fence about buying this jacket don't hesitate, you won't regret it, especially that it is now on sale! I Love this jacket and plan on having it for the next 5-10 years.
