Alpinestars Durban Gore-Tex Jacket 4.8 5 8 8
Quick 2 Year Review... There are enough great reviews on this jacket that I won't even try to get as detailed. I've had this jacket for 2 years now, and it's seen all year round action and it still looks brand new. I've ridden with it in 95 degree summer heat and freezing winter temps and have stayed relatively comfortable in both. In the 95 degree heat, once moving the jacket flows a lot of air.. a summer mesh jacket obviously flows more, but for a big 4 season jacket the Durban is pretty impressive. My only complaint about the entire jacket is the velcro on the neck. When I don't have the neck closed one side of the velcro is very abrasive on my neck, and I'm constantly reaching up and turning out the collar to get it away from my skin. I'm almost tempted to remove the velcro altogether and have snaps installed. Overall I love this jacket, it's very useful and has tons of pockets. I upgraded the back armor and feel somewhat well protected when riding. I did loads of research before making this purchase and I'm very happy with the result. May 25, 2015
You're the one for me! Dear Durban Jacket, Just wanted to let you know how happy I am that you're in my life. You're the one for me and I wanna be around you all the time. You can do it all and keep up with my active lifestyle. You are beautiful, sexy... and you get better looking when dirty. A true head turner! Its true that you don't have the best armor, but we'll buy you an enhanced set because you're worth it. And those smallish coil zippers? Gosh I wish you had bigger ones but hey, nobody is perfect, but you're perfect for me. Love, Me May 4, 2015
great jacket awesome product especially with the upgraded Armour inserts always turns heads wherever i go September 6, 2014
Great product, but protection is not so good... This is an excellent suit for touring, but the protection it provides is not so good. August 26, 2013
Excellent jacket and pant for daily commute and touring in tropical weather Got this jacket in size 50 and pant in size 48 in July 2012 and been using it for daily commute to work. Use the pant while touring only. It gives you excellent fit with many points for adjustment to fit your body and size. The build quality is excellent. Has lots of pockets to store your stuff and 2 waterproof pockets with zipper each on the jacket and pant. In warm tropical heat without the Gore Tex liner on and with all the air vents zipper opened and main jacket zipper 3/4 drawn, you can get ample air circulation into the jacket. You do feel warm when stationary. Once you reached your destination, be sure to open up the main zipper to get maximum ventilation. In tropical rain with the Gore Tex liner on, you are assured of not getting wet at all. And after heavy rain the jacket and pant will dry up quickly within 2-4 hours under the fan. The protection padding provided is top of the range. Except for the back protection for the jacket. Planning to replace that with a better protection padding. Overall, i'm happy with the Durban Gore Tex jacket and pant. It may cost higher than other make but it gives excellent protection, build quality and air ventilation. Highly recommended to all riders and tourers. November 13, 2012
Relatively expensive, but well worth the money. A* has raised the bar with their Durban gear! The fit and finish is spot-on. August 28, 2012
One of my favourite jackets I've had this jacket for a year now and have ridden in all sorts of weather and temperatures in it from below freezing into July heat. -It is VERY comfortable. Wish all the jackets were this comfortable. With all the protection in (I have installed the optional back and chest protectors) I barely feel like I have a jacket on, that's how well it fits. -I love the fact that you can add chest pads. I wish all the manufacturers followed Alpinestars on this one. -Bionic Air back protector is also very comfortable and unobtrusive. -Vent's on sleeves work well, but the chest ones not so much once you install chest pads. -A larger vent on the back would be nice. -Micro velcro strips are the only complaint I have, some are useless after a year of use, especially the ones on the pockets I used regularly. I've never had velcro fail after a few months! -Lot's of good and useful pockets -Works great with Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves, longer gloves harder to fit inside the sleeve -Armour is excellent and fits great. -Sleeves are removable but I don't think anyone needs that IMHO. -The bag that comes at the back is a nice touch but I'd rather just a simple pocket there. The shoulder strap adds bulk, abut you can't remove it. Removing the bag leaves a zipper that can cut and scratch the seat. Not my favourite feature, and would be happy with just a pouch to fit the GoreTex lining -Speaking of GoreTex lining, it is excellent. The entire jacket is water repellent, so not much get's through to the lining, but whatever does will not make it past the lining. I have ridden in some hard rain and snow, and always stayed completely dry. The micro-fleece is also surprisingly warm. I am comfortable riding wearing only a t-shirt under this lining down to about 10 degrees Celsius. And with a thin wool mid-layer I can go below 0 Celsius. Very effective. -Style is good, everyone likes it, but I wish there was an option for more "urban" colours, since I use it daily for commuting fall through spring, and wish I didn't look like I just came from a desert rally all the time. The desert colours are in line with the adventure concept, but this jacket works for anything you throw at it, and I am happy riding a sports bike in it as well as a roadster. Overall, I can't think of many jackets that could fit so many uses as good as this one does. Yes, there are other jackets, from Rev'It, Dainese, BMW... But if you like this one and are considering it, I highly recommend it. July 24, 2012
Excellent and comfortable jacket I’m 5’8”, 165 lbs, 41” chest and I bought this in a size 52. -This jacket vents massive amounts of air; so much so that with the Gore-tex liner removed and every vent closed it still flows a noticeable amount of air. -Extremely comfortable and lightweight when worn; after a quick break-in the articulated elbows, light weight and soft outer material make it feel more like a sweatshirt than a stiff protective jacket. -Slim fit; I would consider going up a size if you plan on layering anything underneath the jacket besides the Gore-tex liner to use it in colder environments. I can’t even fit a micro fleece under the size 52 jacket. I bought it primarily as a summer jacket with the intention of wearing a synthetic t-shirt under it with no liner so for this purpose it’s solid. -The collar on this jacket is the only thing I think could be improved. It is a tall collar for use with the BNS and has a snap on the back that lets you snap it down. It is difficult to get comfortable around the neck and it’s a tight fit. I have a 16 inch neck. When it's warm it has a snap to keep it open and flowing air around your neck which is great but the exposed Velcro patch sticks to the bottom of your helmet. There is a plastic attachment point on the left side of the collar for the BNS that gets in the way if you wear a pack or hydration bladder. -The zip-on/off sleeves do not form a complete seal to the jacket. Even with the zipper completely zipped there is still about a 1.5 inch gap under the arm pits. This is excellent for warm weather but causes noticeable drafts when the temp drops. -For the price it should come with a removable CE back protector and not a cheap foam pad. User could then decide what kind of protector to wear based on conditions and type of riding. I bought it as a non Gore-tex jacket to get me from the house to the trail. For this purpose it works very well and I am very happy with it. I don’t use the inner liner so I don’t know how it does in the rain. During warmer weather the vents work very well and you can effectively manage how much air moves through the jacket. For me I think it strikes an excellent balance of off-road user adjustability and touring capability to get you to and from the trail. I don’t think this is a high country all season jacket unless you go up a size. Overall it’s light, comfortable, and moves with you while you’re getting after it. April 18, 2012

Thomas P: Best reviews of all the 4 season jackets. May 13, 2015
kang d: no size in KOREA. Feb 7, 2015
S S: It was time to update my previous Alpinestars jacket. I have looked at many different jackets and after about 6 months of saving up for it, I pulled the trigger and purchased it. I am very happy with this jacket. The only complaint I have is when the water bladder is full and in the back of the jacket it causes the collar to slightly choke me. Aside from that, it is a great piece. Dec 3, 2014
A shopper asked: Hi guys!
Probably the most stupid question ever asked here...
It's about size...
If i try this jacket with only a t-shirt i fit perfectly a 54.
My question is... i will pass through Mongolia and Russia and even if it will be summer i will ride sometimes in cold (not extreme but cold) temperatures...
Is the thermal liner inside the jacket enough or do i have to wear something else under to don't freeze? In that case i will have to buy a 56.
That would be a shame cause i will using this jacket normally here in Australia were is pretty hot and the jacket will fit a bit big...

Thanks a lot

Tom D: I wore this jacket (and matching pants) on an motorcycle tour of Tibet last May and was very comfortable even at the highest altitudes, including the Mount Everest base camp, where it was pretty cold. With the liner, I wore just a t-shirt or sometimes also a long sleeve t-shirt, depending on the weather. We went through a number of mountain passes at 16,000 feet plus altitude, and I never felt uncomfortable. During the trip, the temperature ranged from about 75 degrees (F) down into the 40s. If you think it will be colder than that on your trip, I'd suggest an additional thin liner jacket. I have another separate liner jacket that fits under the Durban jacket/liner without making it too tight or too bulky. But I don't think you'll need that unless you expect the temperatures to get down into the low 40s or below. I took my other liner on my Tibet trip, but I never used it because the Durban liner was enough. If I were you, I'd go with the 54 if that's what you would normally get for riding in Australia. All in all, it's a very comfortable jacket, and I'm very pleased with it. Have a great trip.

Stevan P: Aside from styling the Durban has Superfabric® ceramic coated welded reinforcements, a removable Paclite Gore-Tex® membrane with micro-fleece inserts and integrated 2Lt Bladder storage. Both are great options and offer a high level of quality and protection in unique designs catering to the needs of a variety of riders. Jul 29, 2011
