Alpinestars GP Plus R Leather Jacket 4.7 5 11 11
Alpinestars GP Plus R Leather Jacket is a very nice jacket Alpinestars GP Plus R Leather Jacket: Overall the jacket is very nice. What I like about it is too long to list so I'm going to be very picky and write about the minor things I don't like: 1. The zipper is reversed. You have to use your left hand to pull it up. 2. The lining is just a tiny but longer than the leather on the sleeves. (I mean really small) The problem is that if your gloves have Velcro exposed, it may snag the lining a bit. 3. My other leather jackets and race suits have no collar and I am used to moving my head side to side very freely. It takes some getting used to the collar on this jacket. Might not be a problem if your previous jackets have collars. That's my honest review. Hope it helps regardless of your decision. August 19, 2014
Bang for your buck Jacket fits almost true to size and strecthes a little after breaking it in. looks awesome and isnt too restricting. id highly recomember this jacket August 19, 2014
I would highly recommend this jacket! At this price point I think this is one of the best jackets on the market. It has C.E. level 1 in the elbows and shoulders. I would recommend buying the bionic air back protector and chest pads which are also C.E. level 1. The back protector is light and comfortable I barley know it's there, it's easy to install. Chest pads are also comfortable, the install is not quite as easy but I wouldn't say it was hard. You don't want to be caught in a bad situation with that flimsy foam that comes with the jacket. The jacket is super comfortable, it doesn't restrict me when I'm riding. With the vents on the shoulder open it flows quite a bit of air it's definitely noticeable. This is a good looking jacket alpinestars did a great gob designing the aesthetics. This thing has a ton of pockets it has two on the outside with zippers, it has the waterproof one on the inside left chest, then it has three with Velcro also on the inside. July 28, 2014
GREAT jacket - just a few minor gripes This review is for the non-perforated version, so I cannot comment on the airflow through the perforated one. This one doesn't have a lot of airflow but that's expected. The jacket does not come with real armor - the included foam pads are "comfort" pads only. You'll want to add a back protector and chest armor to get the most protection. Having done that, I can say that the armor "disappears", even when wearing a backpack. I don't notice it at all. I'm a tall guy with long, skinny arms. This jacket is better tailored to me than most of my clothes, motorcycle-related or not. This feels like a custom fit, no joke. I love it. The jacket leather has a high-quality look and feel, enough so that I enjoy looking at it on the hanger! The leather smell is really very nice, too. With a proper fit, plus chest armor, the inside pocket will allow one thin wallet, or a smartphone (not recommended). Any more than that and you've got a sore chest after a one hour ride, most likely, unless you buy the jacket a little loose. The three snaps on the inside of the back panel are for attaching the jacket to a strap-on back protector. If you are not using one of those, then the snaps threaten to punch holes in your skin if you crash and land right on them. Surprisingly, they don't bother me at all, even with a backpack on while riding. Still, I filled them in with hot glue to keep from having a line of core samples along my backbone if the worst happens. The hot glue "plugs" can be easily removed later if desired. This jacket pairs nicely with the Alpinestars Track Leather Pants. Zipping them together is fairly easy with the 270 degree zip. I have received a LOT of compliments on this jacket (black/white/red). July 16, 2014
Aggressive look, well designed, great buy! This was my first jacket, and I am extremely happy with both the product and the outstanding service Revzilla provides. Ordered it on a wednesday at 2pm and received it the following day at noon. The jacket is true to its size and the size chart provided by revzilla. I ordered the black/white size 40/50 and it fits great. I am 5'8" and 155 lbs. I've been wearing the jacket for over 2 weeks now and I have no complaints whatsoever. The vents provide good ventilation, though it can still get a bit hot in traffic in the summer, but I rather be hot and well protected. It is an aggressive looking jacket which matches the aggresive look of my black CBR600rr graffiti edition. I've gotten many compliments already by friends and other riders. Highly recommend it. 2 Thumbs up Alpinestars and Revzilla! July 14, 2014
Two words... Buy it. So I've tried out quite a few jackets and full suits this last season but one I've been debating getting as I fell in love with it at first sight was the Alpinestars Celer. I did have a chance to try it on and use it but I'm not reviewing the Celer... This is for the GP Plus R. Well when I saw the new GP plus R it was a tough decision... Do I get the GP plus R, a Celer of my own, or maybe a Dainese Laguna Seca? Style: I wound up choosing the GP plus R in off-white with red (Despite all the non-riding girls I showed my choices to picking the red or black and red Celer at first glance) and I have ZERO buyers remorse on my choice! Seeing it on me those same girls gave me lots of compliments, the pictures don't do it justice. It should be mentioned that this jacket is not "pure" white but instead has almost a very subtle two tone white which includes off-white or eggshell. At first I thought this could be a problem but as soon as I opened the box I felt like a kid during Christmas! Stunning! It definitely leans on the side of tech inspired and has a little more edge in the lines. So for styling I feel like Alpinestars has moved lightyears ahead this season from last (I had the chance to buy last years GP off a buddy for $200 and didn't even entertain the idea). Nice job a*stars! Comfort: sizing is very accurate based on the a*stars size chart and I had a Revzilla staff member also give me their opinion based on my measurements provided by my tailor at no charge which I recommend doing because size does matter. I'm 6'1", 180ish lbs, and it fits perfectly. I also bought the bionic air insert which is held in under interior liner by four seemingly flimsy but well placed Velcro tabs that do the job. There are also three buttons that stick out which seem to allow a compatible a*stars race or maybe CEII rated back armor. My concern with these is will they collapse or cause more damage if I go down and hit my back? Something to think about maybe. Actually one of the most comfortable sport jackets I've owned to date. The stance is not too aggressive however there is interior armor and you'll feel it in there but nothing of discomfort for me. I feel like this is the best blend of a track/street style sport jacket. One thing that has bothered me on a small scale is the neck of the jacket. At first I thought my helmet strap was on too tight and quickly realized that the front of the neck on the jacket was protruding into my neck and could be correctly by pulling down on the front of the jacket. Not a big deal but I find myself doing it on occasion. Something else I haven't quite figured out is which gloves to pair this with... The GP Plus gauntlets seem to have a hard time going over the cuff of the sleeves. Air flow: The flow control system seems to work well as I left the zippers open during 80 degree weather here in San Diego but my Ducati reaches 220 degrees at lights so if I lived in a hotter city I would highly reconsider buying the perforated version of this jacket. Riding at night in temps of 65 degrees I thanked myself for sticking to all leather this time around. Features: I think I covered a fair amount of these and for the price you get pretty much everything you could imagine plus more! Remember, I could have bought the Celer or something more expensive and didn't. Maybe if I was in track attack mode I would buy the Celer but do yourself a favor and pick this one up. You'll look and feel great in it. July 4, 2014
Good Jacket fairly comfortable This jacket is super nice while out on a ride. But it does get pretty toasty in with some warmer weather. That said its tolerable long as you got some wind on you. Off the bike the jacket for me is just a tad uncomfortable in the elbows because of the armor. Overall a good price and it can always be zipped up to make a race suit which I will be doing at some point before I buy a full suit. July 1, 2014
Good fit and air flow This jacket looks awesome. I'm 6' 180 pounds with broad shoulders and an athletic build. I got the size 56 so I can wear my ICON Stryker vest underneath. On the colder days, you need to wear a long sleeve underneath to stay warm. I wish it came with back protection. Overall, this is a good buy. June 23, 2014

Dawn B: I was choosing a Bday gift for my boyfriend. I want him to be safe, but he gets too hot wearing jackets. I was concerned the leather may be too warm. I watched the video you had online and liked the vetilation options. I also liked the pads that can be upgraded for the back and chest. I also like the Alpinestars brand and reputation, so I wanted to go with that brand. Feb 25, 2014

A S asked: So I'm a new rider and I am really trying to focus on protection more than anything, is it possible to wear a Icon Stryker Vest under this? I'm 5'8" 155 pounds with a 98 cm chest 89 cm waist 98 cm hip and 67 cm arm length. What sie do you guys recommend if i want to wear the Icon Stryker Vest under this jacket? Oct 2, 2014

Matthew M: Unless you already have the vest, I would look into the CE chest protector and the race level back protector instead of using the vest. I bought the CE level 2 back protector for this jacket and the upgraded chest protection and it is great stuff.

Being that the jacket is meant to have the back and cheat protection in it I would think you can probably go 1 size up if you want to use the vest instead of the armor made for the jacket.

I would suggest finding a store that sells the jacket before buying and try it with the vest.

Christian L: If you were'nt wearing the stryker vest underneath the jacket, you would probably be a size 50, like I am (5'9", 150 lbs). The stryker vest looks fairly thick, so Id think you'd need to get a size 52 or 54 to fit it underneath. Why not just upgrade the flimsy foam chest/back protectors to some A* bio armor instead since its made to fit with this jacket?? Oct 2, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Josh S: If you get this jacket with a fairly snug fit it doesn't flow much air, even with the vents open so it works fairly well in the cold.
I have worn mine at 10 degrees Celsius (50 Fahrenheit) with a thin sweater underneath and I was fairly warm, but I'm pretty much a human furnace.
It's pretty good at 60 Fahrenheit without a sweater of some kind if you don't mind a bit of cool air getting to you.

Thanks in Advance

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Josh S: I would recommend the 48. This jacket is a little looser than race fit and the sleeves are long, so if you get the size 50 it will be loose on you.
Check the sizing chart and make sure the arms will be long enough.
I have a 107 cm chest and the 54 fits me great. I could possibly have gotten away with the 52, but it would be quite snug
