Alpinestars GP Plus Perforated Leather Jacket 4.8 5 46 46
Crash tested on racetrack – bad results It is hard for me to write this kind of review as I was Alpinestars fan forever (I have A* boots, pants, several gloves and I was always satisfied with Alpinestars products), but this may save somebody from possible injuries. I had this jacket for 1 year, riding year-round; I rode ~18k street miles in it and completed 10 track days (with matching Alpinestars GP Plus leather pants and gloves). I wore size 48 and that was a snug fit, which broke-in after some time. Jacket is very comfortable (and stylish); was feeling like second skin. Perforation is a plus – never had any thoughts about taking this jacket off even during the hottest days. During last track day I got into an accident in high-speed corner after the main straight. I was going into the corner at around 70 mph, when I got rear-ended by another guy who was doing ~110 mph (he was riding recklessly and lost control of his bike). I was first sliding on my butt, then started rolling on the pavement and then rolling in the runoff. Long story short, I ended up with my shoulder (humerus) fractured in several places, had to do the surgery and now have a steel plate with 12 screws in my shoulder for the rest of my life. The important part is this: shoulder protectors in this jacket are located in pockets of inner mesh material; protectors are not fixed to the outer leather layer, you can easily move them around in those mesh pockets when the jacket is off. If you put on the jacket it becomes harder to move shoulder protectors around in those pockets, but it is still possible if you push from the right angle – from the front or the back of the jacket. And that’s what happened in my case – when rolling on the pavement there was an impact from the front of the shoulder that shifted protector to the back of the pocket uncovering my shoulder for subsequent hits from the pavement and injuries. When I was looking over my jacket after the crash, I found shoulder protector for broken shoulder way in the back of the jacket (somewhere over the top part of shoulder blade). I believe that if shoulder protector was fixed to the outer leather it would stay in place and wouldn't shift and that would possibly save me from having broken bones. If I had to choose again, I would pick a jacket with protectors fixed to outer leather layer (looks like some competitors have jackets with co-injected shoulders). October 2, 2014
This product was was well worth the price paid.... I liked the style and cut of this product. Air flow was great! If you're sitting for a few minutes in the sun, it gets quite hot, but jumping back on the bike takes care of that. A little difficult to get into, but fits nicely once everything is adjusted and zipped up. The protection is ridiculous, plenty of armor if I went down, plus upgradeable for more aggressive riding. Overall, this jacket is great! I would recommend it to others. D September 22, 2014
Great jacket Been riding in this with temps 90+ & all is good. Of course you'll bake while stopped but once moving air flow is good. 5'11, 195,(with a gut) - 54 fits fine with a t shirt. May want to up a size if you plan on layering. August 26, 2014
For athletic built men I'm 5'7 150 pounds n size 40 USA and it fit perfect. Rode with it on 40 degree n 85 degree weather and kept me warm n cool. For below 40 u need a heated vest n for above 85 u need some type of cooling t shirt. I get I lot of complements on the looks. So far it has been an awesome jacket. May 12, 2014
Preferred it over the JAWS Alpinestars I was stuck between this and the perforated JAWS Alpinestars jacket, so I had ordered both to try out in person. I'm 5'11", sometimes 6' if I go to the right mini-mart, 175lbs with a normal athletic build and ordered a Euro 50. The JAWS didn't sit right on my shoulders, the GP Plus did. The JAWS was a bit looser in the tummy, and it did not have side cinches to tighten the waist up. The GP Plus had a good 'slim' fit and also has side cinches. After a month with the GP Plus, I'm pretty happy. My left arm elbow pad does float out of it's position when I have the jacket off. It's a 2 second fix when throwing on the jacket though. I did notice a yellowing around the collar of my white GP Plus when it first came to me. A quick call to Revzilla confirmed it's a manufacturing 'defect' from where the leather and interior lining meet at the collar. They promised it would wash off with leather soap and it did. Riding with it has been great. I bought the extra internal Alpinestars pads and I always forget they are even in the jacket. Air flows very well through it, and it overall I'm happy I kept the GP Plus over the JAWS. April 24, 2014
Great looking jacket sharp look. I received this jacket and the first thing that impressed me was how great it looked in person the pics don't do it justice. It is a euro fit jacket so don't expect it to be baggy which isn't a problem for me since I wear my cloths fitted anyway. I recommend carefully following the proper measurement procedure before ordering to get the right size first time even though I hear revzilla has a great exchange policy. It is definitely a summer jacket lots of air flow. I would highly recommend this jacket you can tell it's motoGP inspired. March 28, 2014
Great jacket ,comfortable and stylish. I had been looking to get a jacket for a while for riding. After weeks of research and shopping around I landed on this jacket. It's comfortable, it breathes really nicely and has the good protective feeling to it. The sales staff at revzilla were great too, the answered all my questions and help solidify my choice .

This jacket is awesome! Jus wanted to let whom every is reading the reviews that I really love my jacket. I'm 5'7 165lbs and I ordered an size 50. The only thing is when I recieved my jacket there's like a yellowish mark around my collar. I called and spoke with Revzilla's customer service and they were great and very promt I was suppose to send in some pictures and stuff so that they could let me know if I can return it but my girl kept saying it was not the visible so I didn't bother but I know if I had finished the process the service I would have had was great!

A shopper asked: What are the differences between this jacket and the GP-R? Sep 18, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The most striking difference between the GP-Plus and the GP-R is that one is titled "Plus" and the other, "R." The other differences are a little more subtle. Other than styling, the arms on the GP-R tend to fit more snug than on the GP-Plus giving it a slightly more aggressive feel. Sep 19, 2012
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Axel: I don't know all the differences, but key thing for GPR is it works really well in warm weather riding, because it has a lot of perforation in the front as well as the back. Oct 20, 2012

A shopper asked: Hi
Im roughly 163cms tall just wondering if you guys would stock any smaller then 48?

Justin N: These jackets do tend to fit a bit short when fitted correctly; remember they can be connected to suitable riding pants. So, if we're talking 48 euro size (approx 38" chest) then it won't be extremely long on someone with your height. Maybe a 46 would be a better fit, but I'm 5'9" and my 50 was still JUST long enough. However, eveyone's dimensions and proportions are different so nothing beats trying one on... Nov 25, 2013

Russell T: I'm 6'2" with long arms and weight close to 240lbs. Its a little tight in the gut for me so it should fit you much better. The length on the arms is perfect for me. Hope this helps.-russ Sep 17, 2013

Harrison H asked: How much difference between this jacket and GP Pro leather jacket in summer - like hot sunny day 85F? I feel super hot when wear my GP Pro. My shirt is all wet after couple hours of street riding.

My A Start GP Pro leather jacket is in US42 EU52 and in snug fit. Should I choose same size for this jacket? 52 from the drop down list?
