Alpinestars Gunner WP Jacket (Size 2XL Only) 4.6 5 75 75
good simple riding jacket It works well for riding in variable seasons. I ride year round July 11, 2015
Good bang for the buck. I bought this coat when it was on sale. I was looking for a waterproof coat that had some protection for a great price. So far the coat has done the job well. Great wind blocker, warm to wear when it gets cooler. The collar seals out the wind nicely. The armor is minimalistic, yet feels like it would do something if I were to need it. One thing I wish was that the sleeves were a bit longer. I ordered an XL and I am 6' 3" and 185#, the chest and shoulder fit perfect, but when I am on the bike the sleeves seem to be just a little short. But overall a good coat for the money. July 6, 2015
Great jacket but runs small This is a very nice jacket. I am 6"1' and my shirt size is 2xl. I bought this jacket in a 2xl and it feels like i would need a 4xl just to zip it up, not actually feel comfortable. However my friend fits in it and he said its an extremely comfortable jacket. and for the price this is a really nice jacket. June 24, 2015
What a great jacket for a steal I'm a bigger guy (read: fat). 6'1 240 lbs. I ended up getting a 2xl the first go around but felt like a sausage and couldn't fit my back protector in. I usually wear Xl in shirts, figured go a size up. Nope. I'm on a 3 XL and it fits great with my back protector in. I was a little dissapointed that it didnt actually have the button for my Alpinestars bionic protector but heck it still feels snug and secure. I sent it back and took the hit on shipping (i figured it was well worth it after seeing the build quality of the jacket) This thing is awesome for fall and winter riding. Super warm inner liner, still decently warm without it, water proof, and all the added armor made me feel really confident that it will hold up in a crash. It has vents on the shoulders and lower back for airflow that I've used this spring as well. I highly recommend this for the colder days and wet rides. Awesome jacket. April 28, 2015
Great Jacket I have had this jacket for over a year now. I bought it after returning from a ride where I got soaked to the bone and was freezing by the time I got home. I have ridden probably 10K miles in this jacket in the past year+. (all winter-ish riding) It is definitely waterproof and does a great job of blocking wind and keeping you warm. I have ridden for 3-4 hours in the rain and been completely dry inside the jacket. I added a CE rated back protector that fits nicely where the comfort foam was previously. It's a great cold/wet weather jacket. April 27, 2015
One glaring issue I've had this jacket nearly a year. The removable liner makes a big difference in how warm it is. The little straps that keep the sleeves in place broke on the 2nd or 3rd wear, but that hasn't been that big of a deal at all. The biggest problem I have with this jacket is the strap that goes in front of my neck. If I attach it to the other side, it rubs my neck raw. If I don't, the velcro on the right side snags onto the soft velcro on my Shoei RF-1200 where it's supposed to keep the helmet strap from rubbing your jaw raw. I can't seem to come up with a good compromise. I suppose a turtleneck might work to keep it from rubbing my neck/adams apple raw, but I don't even own a turtleneck and I'm not wearing one every time I wear this jacket. If others have experienced this and come up with a workaround I'd love to hear it. Other than this, the jacket is a 5-star jacket, but as-is, it's just painful to wear. April 24, 2015
Excellent 2-3 Season Jacket - Rain, Cold & Crash Tested! I've now had this jacket for about 5 months and have worn it daily - through winter (mild central coast California winter - but got down to the 30s and 40s regularly), rain, warmer temps (80s) and even through my first crash (fortunately a slow speed, minor lowside - more later). All in all, I have been extremely satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend this jacket for daily commuters like myself faced with ever-changing weather and temperatures or casual enthusiasts looking for a great bang for their buck. STYLE: While I find many "all-weather/all-purpose" jackets to be too bulky looking for my tastes, this one has a much more slimming, sportier appearance that I prefer, even with the thermal liner zipped in. Sure, there's no mistaking that this is a motorcycle jacket, so if you're looking to blend perfectly into a crowd off the bike, you won't. But it's by no means flashy nor its Alpinestars logo and name branding obnoxious. On the contrary, it's unobtrusive and understated in its styling without apologizing for what it's made for - riding a motorcycle. There's a certain timeless appeal to its simplistic, focused lines and I find its lack of too many bells and whistles refreshingly welcomed. I'm much more interested in a jacket being a well made jacket with protection where it counts first and foremost than I am in it having countless zippers and velcro straps, pockets everywhere or the most cutting edge materials or features that my budget can't currently afford anyway. SIZING / FITMENT: I bought the XL. I am 6'3", 230lbs, broad shoulders, average to athletic build with a few extra pounds around the waist. I usually wear a size 44 Long in jackets. With the comfort padding in the chest and back and with the thermal liner zipped in, it was definitely a bit too snug for my tastes (especially with any kind of sweater on). But once I removed the chest and back padding (intend to add armor there soon and will report back when I do), it fit pretty much perfectly. I have fairly long arms but the sleeve length was spot on nonetheless. And during the colder days of winter I was able to layer just fine (t-shirt, shirt, sweater) and still have the thermal liner in without the jacket getting too snug for comfort. And unlike some other jackets, I'm not then swimming in it when I remove the thermal liner and wear just a t-shirt underneath. While I could stand to lose a few pounds around the waist, I'm not fat and don't have a big belly and wouldn't recommend this jacket to someone who does. A little pot belly or minor love handles will be just fine, but I suspect that much more than that and this jacket will become uncomfortable and unflattering. On the positive side, if your few extra pounds really are just a few like mine, you will benefit from a "slimming" effect from the minimalistic, flattering cut of the jacket. The only real design flaw is the collar which is a little rough against my neck and is a little too tight and uncomfortably stiff when velcroed. And I have a fairly thin neck for my build. Alpinestars could benefit from lining the collar more comfortably and allowing for more adjustability in its fit. CLIMATE PERFORMANCE: The key to really appreciating the jacket is in understanding that its more multi-purpose, multi-season oriented design means that it will never be perfect for any one condition, but as a VERY affordable (as motorcycle gear goes) jacket-of-all-trades (see what I did there?), its superb value will have you shrugging off any imperfections you might notice as inconsequential in the "grand scheme of things" - maybe enough to notice in the most extreme of conditions, but minor enough to not ruin your day or leave you questioning your purchase. Personally, I wouldn't recommend this jacket in temps above low to mid 80s as it doesn't have a whole lot of ventilation, but that is one of those trade-offs you accept in exchange for its waterproof, minimalist design. I've worn it in sunny, high 80s temps and while it was fine overall, I would have preferred something a little lighter and more ventilated. But again, its value exceeds any discomfort. That being said, I will be looking to purchase something a little better suited to higher SoCal temps for the late spring and summer seasons. On the other hand, this jacket performed beautifully in the lower temperatures of a central coast California winter. With proper supporting clothing and gear, I kept cozy and warm on my daily 12 mile commutes through wine country (avg 50mph) in temperatures that were often in the 30s and 40s (ºF) from November through February. I don't think this would be the right choice though for sustained colder temperatures or sustained freeway speeds in temps below 40ºF. It's just not heavy enough to replace layers of warm clothing, but also too snug to layer anything more than a t-shirt, long sleeve button down and fleece - which happens to be perfect for the milder winters of coastal wine country but would not be enough for the more adventurous commuters of the northern climes. Have worn this jacket through light drizzles and heavy downpours and I always arrived dry thanks to its waterproof shell - no pesky leaks or malfunctions at all. As for wind - on windy days, the jacket has a tendency to billow a little if you leave any way for wind to get in due to the lack of airflow, but it's minor and mostly mitigated by the adjustable straps around the arms and waist as well as the collar's velcro closure. But it DOES cut the chill of an autumn or winter wind exceptionally well. CRASH TESTED: As mentioned earlier, I did go down in this jacket so can attest to its durability and protection in a crash, though it was a low-speed (20-30mph) lowside tumble caused by another vehicle taking a blind turn too tightly and cutting through my lane which meant as I came around the turn I was faced with the rear of their vehicle still in my lane much too quickly for my attempted evasive actions to have any benefit. Just as I thought I had managed to swerve and brake my way to safety, I was all of a sudden over the handlebars as the bike went down and I somehow managed a shoulder roll as I hit the pavement (thank you Aikido training for programming that one into my muscle memory!). While my 2007 Yamaha XT225 was determined totaled by the other driver's insurance company, thankfully I managed to escape my first crash with no broken bones and hardly a scratch thanks to the low speed nature of the crash and my adherence to an ATGATT philosophy - only injuries were a thoroughly bruised up right shin and calf and overall body soreness for a few days. I did note that I'm certain my shoulder and elbow hit the pavement and the armor and fabric worked exactly as intended - no injuries sustained in those areas and barely even a scuff on the jacket. CONCLUSION: If, like me, you value BOTH form AND function, but aren't overly concerned with camouflaging your gear so that it looks like "normal" clothing yet also don't want or need to look like a stormtrooper, you too will appreciate this jacket. If, like me, you don't derive a sense of self worth by name dropping or needing to display every high end brand name you can afford to buy and aren't super thrilled about being a walking advertisement covered in logos but are happy to wear a few tastefully displayed ones that don't detract from the overall styling in support of a proven, high quality brand that you can get behind, then you too will appreciate this jacket. If, like me, you value utility and efficiency but not at the expense of aesthetics, you too will appreciate this jacket. And if, like me, you need an affordable, all-purpose, multi-season jacket but not at the expense of style, quality materials, durability or workmanship, this jacket is definitely THE one to consider.

Nice COLD weather jacket can go to 40 degrees and sunny. Great 3 season COLD jacket. Im 6ft, 200 lbs, 44 chest, 34 wasit (maybe 35 waist) and wear an XL. Fits nice though a little snug in the shoulder/back/bi area w/ the inside liner. Cant wear much underneath. Back protection is near useless. Collar is a pain to deal with as it is tight on the neck and the velcro doesnt always keep in close. I sometimes get the collar cought in the helmet strap when putting on my helmet. Reverse side zipper takes getting use to but overall, very satisfied for the price paid. April 13, 2015

A shopper asked: I live where the fall is a pretty cloudy, cool time. It deosn't get below 30F but doesn't get above 45F. Summers run upper 70s to mid 90s. Does removing the liner provide enough air flow for comfort and does the liner in provide enough warmth for cooler driving? Oct 30, 2013

Luke L: You'd be pushing both ends of the spectrum for this jacket, but I'd say yes. 90 is a bit hot if you're moving slowly, but I've gone all day at 80 - 100 F on the highway. On the other end, I'm running this every day at 25 - 35 F right now, and it's great if you put a fleece or down vest underneath it. The tall collar is especially nice in the cooler weather. One note is that I have two pairs of gloves to go with it - a short mesh pair for the summer to let wind up the sleeves, and a waterproof gauntlet pair for the winter to keep it out. Oct 30, 2013

Ryan C: I've ridden this jacket for the full seas this past year and used it as an early spring and fall jacket mostly. I found that it being slightly longer helped keep the cool morning air out on my Gixxer.

Living in Canada I find it can be in the low 40's in the morning and high 70's in the afternoon. This jacket covers it all. To be frank I rarely kept the liner in except for the extreme early and late parts of the season. With the vents it moves the air OK with the vents open.

Brian A: The jacket will do ok without the liner around 90 degrees, but it wont be as nicely vented as an A stars mesh. At those low temps, id say the jacket will be cold unless you layer a little. Bigger concern of mine would be gloves and neck protection. Ive ridden in this jacket at temps near 50 and was comfortable enough, but thats a far cry from 35. Oct 30, 2013
Reply to Brian Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Mike T: I think it's a great fall jacket. I usually ride with a pack, so when the sun comes out in the afternoon I can pack it away. When I head home at night I zip it back in and I'm ready to go. I usually don't ride under 50 degrees, but at that temperature I'm still pretty comfortable with a thermal underneath. Hope this helps. Oct 30, 2013

Hernan I: Hi, I've been using the jacket for about a year. You'll be fine for the cooler days while using the liner, and it has enough vents for you to take out the liner and wear it during the warmer days. It's a good jacket for commuting with nice protections, just watch the video, it's really accurate. Oct 30, 2013

drew b: I consider this more of a spring/fall jacket. I used it in the winter in Dallas but had to wear multiple layers. For summer, it does have good airflow. However, Without the zippers unzipped the jacket tends to catch a lot of drag on my naked bike.

The liner dosent seem to make much of a difference.

Ryan C: Drew, I live in Canada (Calgary, AB) and have ridden this jacket all season since April. Here we get a lot of low to high to low temperature shifts. I've ridden this jacket in 40 degrees and into the high 80's and it's worked for both.

With the liner in, it is very warm and with it out and the vents open I would say it's comfortable, but not cool.

It is a bit larger in the back so ridding in a 3/4 position on my Gixxer 750 stuff gives me lots of coverage.

A s: It's windproof but still a thin jacket. If you have a decent warm fleece or jacket underneath you can ride comfortably to about 20F. Anything lower than that and I'd look into a heated vest for winter riding.

Great fall/winter jacket for commuting, have had this jacket for over a year now, just don't buy it and expect the airflow to be great or comfortable when its over 60F outside.

Kevin M: I was actually really surprised about this jacket. I've ridden in freezing cold rain and single digit temperatures, and almost snow. After about 20 min my legs and hands would go numb but I felt like I could ride with the jacket for hours. Wind, cold rain and just plain cold I don't feel a thing with the liner in it. It was well worth the buy. Sep 13, 2013

Robert R: It can get pretty warm. It's on the heavier side for a jacket so I wouldn't wear it during summer or on hotter days. Its great for fall/winter. The liner helps more than you'd think for those days that are extra cold. Sep 13, 2013

bjake2001: The lining runs down the sleeves where it attaches with two color-coded snaps so you don't install it twisted. It zips out along the front edges near the main zipper and continues along the back of the neck and then down the other side of the main front zipper. Sep 24, 2012

A shopper asked: What is the warmest weather that you would ride in with this jacket without the liner? Could it possibly handle 90+ on highways? Jun 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Rohit M: The Jacket has limited ventilation and suitable for moderate weather -- 16-28 Degree Centigrade.
However, I'm in India, It's tropical, gets humid in the summer and as an added bonus, I sweat a lot.
So If you can handle a little warmth it could cover a good range of variation in weather.
Also, I've felt that with all the vents open as well as the top 1/5th of the zipper allows for decent airflow if you're moving constantly.
Your tolerances could play key here ( what's your winter like?)

Chester D: No way. Don't do it at that temp. Get a mesh jacket for that temperature. Maximum temp I would ride in this would be about 70 deg F. It's excellent for lower temps because it barely has any venting, plus it's a full sleeve quilted liner. Jun 17, 2014

Robert R: With the liner, it was hot around 75 degrees. Without the liner it got hot around 80-85 ish. This is definetly more of a cold weather jacket. 90 degrees on the freeway would be uncomfortable, even with all the vents open and the liner out. Jun 17, 2014

Andre R: I live in Florida and I wouldn't wear this jacket at 90+ degrees. At a moving speed it's fine but if you're in a stop and go traffic you will be sweating a lot. Jun 17, 2014

A S asked: Hey, I'm in between both the medium and the large. My chest is perfect for the medium, but I'm a bit taller for the height at 6'2. Is this jacket not going to be long enough if I go with the medium? Also, my arms a little longer than average as well, so what should take priority when deciding: chest or anything else? Thanks!

John M: This jacket runs very tight fitting for the size offered. I was also inbetween sizes and went up to the larger size and it fits like a glove in the larger size with the liner in and slightly loose without. The cut is very euro and fairly aggressive so keep that in mind for your body type. For reference im 6ft 2in 44 chest 36 arms 34 waist with a 32 inseem so I wear talls in everything. That said its a great cold weather jacket that I get a lot of use out of, stays warm and dry very well. Oct 1, 2013

Ben D: The sleeves on the Gunner are quite long. I'm 6'1, 205 lbs, and I often have problems with sleeves on jackets being too long. I found that I was in the same situation, except I was torn between XL and Large. I ended up settling on the large because the XL just had too much volume in the stomach and back. The large is snug across the chest and shoulders, and the sleeves still come down to my thumb knuckle. Oct 8, 2013

Felipe N: I would rather go with the Large! I'm at 5'7 and wearing MD without much room at the bottom, so it will probably feel small to you. Also, the chest size is the one which varies the most, considering you might wear a second skin + jersey or any other combination of chest clothes. Oct 1, 2013

ian s: I went with the large and the sleeves are great for me. They are right on my wrist in riding position. I am 6'2" 185lbs with about a 42" chest. Overall fit for me is perfect being athletic with long arms. Oct 1, 2013

Rand R asked: So I live in Texas and ride 95% of the year. My morning consist of a 15 mile commute to work with a average of 35/40 degree weather. As you can imagine I'm in a lot of pain. I'm a Astars fan boy and looking for a good sport touring jacket. Can this jacket keep me somewhat warm? Also what would be good matching gloves. My fingers constantly are in pain so I was thinking Astars tech heated gloves. What do you guys and gals think. Jan 26, 2014

Juan M: That is some pretty cold weather to ride in. I'm from Southern California and I have a 25 mile commute one way, 95% fwy miles. The coldest I've rode in this jacket was at 37 degree weather but still have to consider the windshield factor, thats pretty cold weather! Nevertheless yes this jacket makes a big difference but after a few rides in that kind of weather, I've decided I won't ride in anything under 42 lol. It's bearable in this jacket but still cold. I also wear 2 shirts, a thermal, and thermal pants under my jeans in this weather, and as for gloves I just use regular gloves. All in all this jacket is a great winter jacket if you've ridden in that weather with out a winter jacket, you'll notice the difference with this jacket for sure, but I dont know whats bearable to you. mid high 30 degree weather is prertty cold. I still sucket up from time to time cause at the and if the day the rush hour traffic on my way home is toecher. (Lane splitting in socal) hope this was helpfull. Jan 27, 2014

Kyle U: Hey Rand - I live in northern California and it's been in the upper 30's to low 40's when I commute 40 miles (oneway) and this jacket keeps me pretty warm. I do wear a fleece jacket under it as well if it's really cold. As for gloves I'm still looking for some that keep me warm. Let me know if you find some. Hope this helps. Jan 26, 2014

Ganan Y: I live in Canberra AUS and it dips to below 10 degC in the day.
It is extremely comfortable for spring/autumn, when winter came round, I squeezed a woollen jumper underneath and was quite toasty.

Luke L: Hi,

I find this jacket to be a very good one for cold weather. I live in Wisconsin and have commuted in weather down to 8 F. The features I like about this jacket for cold weather are that it has a tall collar which is snug, it is fairly long, and you can get the cuffs as tight as you need. I find I need to wear another layer underneath this jacket even with the liner in to cut down on the drafts. Something like a down jacket works well. Heated gloves are certainly nice on cold days; my fingers are the first thing to get cold. I've got some good out of wearing leather 'chopper' style mitts over my gloves, but they might make the controls too hard to operate. I haven't seen the gloves you're talking about but the one thing I'd say is they ought to be gauntlet style and go over the end of your sleeves to seal out drafts. Best of luck!

A s: I use this for my winter commute down to the teens in temperature. As long as you have a nice fleece or something warm to wear underneath, it will work just fine. The A* heated gloves might require power leads to a heat troller, I know this jacket doesn't have anything special built in to support heated gear.

I would personally go with gerbing over the a* heated gloves from what I've seen people talk about, but you might be able to get away with just heated grips with the texas winters. That would be way cheaper and then you could go with just a normal drystar glove for wind/cold/rain weather for winter.

John T: I live in New Jersey and used this jacket from October-February during 2012. Riding is comfortable down to about 35 degrees with the removable liner in place. Below 35 degrees I wear gerbings heated gloves, substitute the Alpinestars removable liner with a Powerlet heated jacket liner and added tourmaster heated chaps which allowed me to ride in 27 degree weather.

I don't know anything about their heated gloves but I use the heated jacket liner to plug my gloves and chaps in.

Jong Woo P asked: I checked out this jacket at the local shop this weekend and noticed the color they had was a little different than listed here. My favorite color at the shop was black and grey. Is the Black and Ice/White here the same color as the one that I like? I need to make sure of the color of this jacket before placing an order here. Thanks Oct 7, 2013

Michael N: I ordered the black/white one and I can say that the white is a little dark. Possibly a light gray. Also I dont see a black/grey option on the alpinestars website so I think it's possible that it's the black/white one. Oct 8, 2013

nicolas n: Yes, the white ice is more of a gray in color. They one you saw at the store would also say in the tag black/ ice gray. Also in the picture of revzilla the jacket looks as it was white but it's not. Oct 8, 2013
