Alpinestars Jaws Perforated Leather Jacket 4.8 5 44 44
nice jacket this jacket is awesome! with the liner in, I am able to ride on the cold damp nights of spring and fall. But when the liner is out, the jacket is very free flowing and feels comfortable for me up to 80 degrees. The sizing is a little weird, i got a size that fit my torso and shoulders but it seems to be a bit loose in the arms when the liner is out. Still a really nice fit though. Also, the stickers on the arms began to peel immediately but A-stars and Revzilla were more than willing to help me with this and exchange the jacket under warranty. July 21, 2014
Great air flow My husband bought the white and black as his first riding jacket. Fits him very well and looks good with our bike and his Bell helmet;) and the air flow keeps him cool without pouring sweat in this Texas heat. July 7, 2014
Great jacket no regret This is an amazing jacket good air flow and looks good too. Fit and finish are excellent, very comfortable. Worth every penny. June 19, 2014
This jacket looks great and is comfortable to wear. Will probably upgrade the back and chest protection. The jacket gets warm at temperatures over 80. The liner appears to be top quality also. Haven't worn it with the liner in it yet. June 17, 2014
Some early wear at front Overall, like the jacket. I've put in 2,000 miles over past 2 weeks and there is a little wear in the leather at zip point just below sternum (probably where it contacts the tank). Wear started to show after less than 500 miles. Otherwise love it, hope it doesn't continue to wear in other spots. June 16, 2014
Saved my skin in a 70 MPH lowside This jacket excels in the warmer months of the year. The airflow is great and keeps me cooled off in hot California heat. Just recently I took a nasty tank slapper from a pothole on the freeway changing lanes and eventually lost control at 70 mph, eventually falling to the left and sliding around 50-75 ft. The leather held up extremely well, to say the least. My left arm took the majority of the slide, and I'm glad that I walked away with nothing more than a small shot to my pride and not a trip to the ER from road rash. I will definitely be ordering stuff from Alpinestars again. :) June 11, 2014
This jacket has the liner and breathes very well. I love the fact that I have the option for a liner. The jacket breathes extremely well in warm weather. Its very well made. Its fits a little small but I have very broad shoulders. I had some friends try it on and I am happy I got the European large (42). I love Alphinestar products! June 3, 2014
great jacket. i love this jacket. this is the 2nd jaws, first one was a little big. im about 42 1/2 - 43" chest, i got EUR size 54, fits perfect. just need to break it in now. also i have long arms, no issue with length either. removable liner is nice as well and i notice alot of air flow especially near my elbow, which i thought was kind of weird because my elbows dont sweat that much. lol. looks great, feels great. will most likely get matching zip in pants.

A shopper asked: What pants should I consider pairing with this jacket for summer sport riding? Obviously, the Alpinestars GP-Plus or Track pants would take advantage of the 360 degree zipper interface, but would either of those be the best way to go for street riding in a varied climate such as Colorado (mid 90s in the day, dropping off to 60s at night)?

Charles Gabriel C asked: A* Perforated Jaws vs Icon Overlord Prime Leather Jacket?

Which one is SLIM FITTING and has shorter front torso length and broader shoulders to compensate for my not so manly attributes?
I hate it when a jacket bubbles and rides up on the front stomach when I hop onto a bike moreso in an agressive riding position, or is that normal?

I am a 5'6" 135lbs 34" chest 30" waist 30 inseam, slim fit build. Imagine Bruce Lee, with the semi-long hair and everything, excluding the skills and coolness factor.

wally s: Don't know about the overlord , but the alpinestar is a race fit, meaning snug everywhere . I never noticed any bulkyness to the jacket at all. I wear spine protector and chest protectors in it and the jacket is snug. Too big of a jacket would be bulky! But i'm 5'11' ,185 , 42' chest and i have the 44. the 42 wouldn't allow me room for spine and chest protection, so i got 44. hope i helped Dec 9, 2013

A shopper asked: As far as perforated or non-perforated which one would you recommend for 50-90 degree weather i.e: Cold New York Springs/Falls? Will the thermal liner provide sufficient internal climate control during the colder days or should I just go with the nonperforated jacket?

I also like the new GP Plus R but it seems as though the JAWS jacket may have more versatility.....

Brennan H: So Cal rider here. This jacket is perfect for the range you mentioned (50F-90F). With the liner and a sweater plus a base layer you will survive into the mid 40s. As long as ur moving 90 is also doable but it can get warm if sitting in traffic. The zipper vents really help to cool down when tucked in the rising position. Apr 13, 2014

Steven U: Illinois/Michigan over here. 50's-60's I wear a light sweater underneath the jacket without the inner-liner. You should go with the perforated jacket for 70's-80's+. Its well worth it and unless you are riding in sub 50's, this jacket will be an excellent choice per the temperature. Apr 17, 2014
Reply to Steven Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ryan S: I live in the southwest and see a bit more of a temperature range than that. I would recommend going with the perforated for versatility. I was fine all winter with it and definitely like the ability to remove the inner liner to get it ready for summer. Apr 10, 2014

Zubeida M: hello

I use the jaws perforated jacket its excellent when its hot weather and flows a lot of air i think if you the thermal liner you should be fine in 50 degree temp i think a non perforated jacket will just get to hot

George M: I would definitely go for the perforated. You will appreciated it on those 90 degree days. I put the liner in and layer up with some thermals underneath and I'm good to ride in the 40's. You're going to love this jacket! Apr 10, 2014

Chris S: Personally I like the perforated one, it definately helps in the hot temps and with the liner you should be fine in the colder temps as well. if anything you can do what i did and just throw a zip up hoodie over it. Apr 11, 2014

Aaron J: I would say the Perf. The liner is stout and long sleeve, not just a vest. It runs smaller too, I wear a 40, but I could have gotten away with a size 42 in this jacket. Apr 10, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm planning on purchasing the jaws jacket but I don't know what size to go with. I'm 5' 11'' and about 175lbs. I heard this jacket runs small so should I go with size 54/44? Aug 21, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joao G: Size does run a touch small, particularly when used together with the thermal vest. I'm same height as you, though heavier (195lbs) and the size 56 fits me perfectly ie snug in the arms, comfortable around chest and waist. The size I bought was the exact size suggested by the sizing chart on the RevZilla page for this jacket. Note that I also have the optional Bionic back protector and chest protector inserts, though those don't seem to have affected the fit at all.

So my suggestion is to take advantage of the very sensible RevZilla return policy and go with the suggested size and try it on. Move around a little bit, see how comfortable it feels with the thermal vest. If you're not happy, you can always exchange it for the next size up.

MIKE P: I'm 5'11" and about 195. I normally wear a size 44 suit jacket, or sport. I tried a 54 in this jacket and it was too tight in the middle. Shoulders where fine. I got the 56 and all is good.

If you truly weigh 175 and are fairly fit, the 54 will be awesome. Bear in mind that these jackets are supposed to be somewhat snug, else they don't provide the protection needed.

I love this jacket. Very understated, lots of cool features and a decent price.

billy o: The last A-Stars jacket I purchased was a size 52. It fit well so figured I'd get the same size when I was looking at the Jaws. The jacket does fit a bit tight, especially with the new thermal liner. After about 3 weeks of riding it still is a bit snug. I'm the same build so go with the 54. Aug 22, 2013

John R: I'm 6'-0" and 180lbs. and I purchased the 52\42. It is snug, but I can wear my Alpinestars Track Vest underneath without any problems. If you like a larger fit, then go up to 54\44. BTW, great jacket. Aug 22, 2013

Levi L: I bought(52) one size bigger than Alpinestars chart told me to get. When I first got it I needed my girlfriend to take it off of me because the arms were so tight. I've had the jacket for a while now and it does fit better but it's a combination of two things. The jacket is broke in and my arms are smaller from not going to the gym lol. I'm 6' and weighed 180 when I bought it. I weight about 165 now :/. The jacket fits more like it needs to now that I lost muscle :(. So if you stay around 175 I might go up to a 54. Feb 7, 2014

jose m: Go with the 54 if you want it to be more comfortable and the 56 if you want it to be more of a relaxed fit, keep in mind it will stretch a little with use, I to brought a 52 at first and couldn't fit my arms in it, I then went with a 56 which was snug at first but I put about 8k miles on it last season and it fits great now Feb 6, 2014

Jarret O: I'm 6'1" and ~165, and the 56 feels good on me (I've mostly worn it with the liner in so far, as it's been cold). Since we're fairly similar height/weight, I'd guess the 56 would fit you better than the 54. Not sure if/how much it will stretch, I haven't had the opportunity to wear mine much yet. Feb 6, 2014

Michael D: Stephen,

I am 5'10" 175lbs and have normally wear a US 44 jacket. I originally went with a 54 for this jacket and had the same issue with it being too tight, specifically around the shoulder/top of chest area. I moved up to the 56 and it fits perfectly.

John B: I would say 54. Don't forget it's leather so it will break in. If you plan on getting any bigger or adding front and back protectors you might want to go 56 Feb 6, 2014

Vincent G asked: Are the sizes on the site for ordering listed in Euro or US?

I'm 183 cm, 72 kg (6'0, 160 lbs), lean athletic build, european, size 56 seemed like perhaps it would be a good fit.

Any people with a similar body have good results with it? I'm worried it won't stretch down low enough to properly cover my stomach/kidney area.

Akhil A: I'm 5' 10" ~160 lbs, I ordered a 52. Fits me perfectly. I have a 39 or 40 inch chest and I think a 32 inch waist. The jacket is snug but not constricting, arm length is just right (although I think I have long arms). I was able to put in back armor protection and chest protection and still have it be comfortable. It would be difficult to put a jacket underneath this for cold weather riding, but that's not really an issue for me being in Texas. I would say a 54 would fit you well. Look at the size chart and take measurements, and if you're on the borderline between sizes, go up a size. May 9, 2014

Carl G: This jacket comes in euro sizes. I'm a 48 US. So I ordered a 58 euro. I'm 6 ft. 250. So Imo I think a 56 would be to big for u. Best thing is for someone to measure ur chest. There is a video on this site that shows u how to do so. My jacket was a little snug at first but fits great now. I also have A stars aftermarket back and chest protection. It fits great now. I would say I'm about a 2 Xl in this jacket if it went by that. Hope this helps some. Any other questions just let me know so we can get u on the right track. May 1, 2014

Alfredo B: The jacket is Euro sized and so listed. I bought a size 52 the fit was excellent. I have a 42 inch chest usually wear medium size shirts. I gained some weight but it still didn't feel binding in the mid area. It was a bit snug with the liner attached. It went down to my belt and the back covered my tail bone plus a little more. Best investment I made. I went down on my bike and the jacket literally saved my skin. It had to get cut off so it served is purpose. Good luck. May 1, 2014

Arjun G: Sizing can be tricky. I suggest you go by the manufacturer's size chart and take your measurements and ensure a good fit.

If this helps, I am 5'7" 164 lbs and I got a EUR size 48, which was a very snug fit. It has expanded a little since my purchase but not by a whole lot. Give your jacket some time to break in - when I first got my jacket, I was debating on whether to return it or not but I decided to give it a shot. I can't wear the jacket with the inner lining in it but that has never been a big problem for me. If you'd rather wear the jacket with the inner lining, you have to give due considerations to the size you order.

Hope this helps. Safe riding!

Michael D: The jacket size mainly depends on the chest width and how tight of a fit you are comfortable with. I am 5' 10" 185lb, I normally wear a size EU 54, or US 44. refer to the size chart. http://www.revzilla.com/alpinestars-size-chart#26 . But in this case, the EU 54 size was very snug. I swapped it for a EU 56 and the fit is perfect with the liner, and even better without the liner for those hot days. I recommend taking measurements by using the size chart, and choosing the next size up. Hope this helps! Nov 17, 2013

John B: I would say go with 50. But a women's cut jacket will definitely be best (especially for the chest area). At 5' 6" the arms on the 50 will be a little long as with the length of the jacket. 48 will be too tight if you wear 33 mens jean. Don't even go near 52. Hope this helps! Nov 17, 2013

Vincent G asked: What back protectors and chest protectors did you put in the jacket?

Can you only put the bionic air inserts in?

Thanks!

Kevin M: I haven't put any, the back protector I left there, and the chest one that it included, even though they were just thin foam layers, made the jacket a little too bulky for me. Apr 16, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm new to the motorcycling world. After some research and recommendations from friends, I decided to go with this jacket. I am still really confused about the sizing. I have all my measurements, but I still don't know where it would place me on the sizing chart. Chest: 41 in., Waist: 43 in., Arm Length: 22 1/2 in., Height: 5 feet 6 in., and around 195 pounds. My question is, do I just go with the biggest measurement and and go from there? I've also seen that is' Euro sizing so does that mean I go with my largest measurement and then go a size up? Thank you for the help. Mar 17, 2014

REINIER R: Hi, I bought the black 50 Eur size and I'm size 40" chest, jacket felt snug at first then it stretches a little and now more comfortable. You're kind of in between sizes, I suggest buying 52 euro specially if you put the hard chess and back protector. 50" euro will be to tight and if you have gut belly, it will not look good. I hope that helps and enjoy the jacket, I know you will get a lot of attention from people like I do. Mar 20, 2014

A shopper asked: My chest is a size 36 (us), however this jacket only comes in the equivalent of a 38 (us), do the sizes run small at all, or would i be better off finding another jacket? Apr 8, 2013

jvang: Hi Qasim,

I just bought this jacket a couple weeks back and I absolutely love it. The size does run a little small because it is a race fit. I'm 5'4" 150 lbs, and I measured my chest at 38-1/2" - 39" so I ended up getting the size 40US/50EUR which I thought might have been a bit too big at first, however when I tried it on, it was snug, but it's designed to be a little snug, and stretch over time. You being a size 36US, a size 38US might fit well for you. Also, consider your arm length; if you're getting the smallest jacket out there, the sleeves are also going to be short. You need to find a good middle-point between the two. Watch the sizing video and go by the A-Stars sizing chart. I hope that I was able to help with your question.

A shopper asked: Hey High-Vis Brian, wondering how the Jaws fits compared to the GP-Plus. Sending my newly-purchased GP-Plus back for the new Jaws perf, and want to know, thermal liner out, how it's going to fit compared to the track-snug GP-Plus. I wear a 48, am 5'6" 140lbs soaking wet.
Also wondering if it's all the same armor as ion the GP-Plus, ie CE shoulder, elbow, and foam back, chest. Wasn't mentioned in the video (strange, Anthony's usually really good about that)
Oh, and it's a Pre-Order right now, how long until it will actually start shipping out?
Thanks!!

RevZilla: Hi-Viz Brian here. I saw your questions on our website and wanted to reach out to you personally.

I tried on both the Jaws and GP Plus back to back to get the best idea of each jacket's fit. Both jackets were a size 52 (my size) and they fit extremely well. The GP Plus definitely has a less aggressive pre-shape to it. The GP Plus didn't seem to force my body into the tuck riding position as much as the Jaws did. However, you are still getting a semi-aggressive pre-shape with the GP Plus.

Furthermore, the Jaws felt slightly more snug than the GP Plus with the thermal liner inside. With the thermal liner removed, both jackets had the same amount of "snugness" (I can't believe that is actually a word). They were not bulky by any means. I would recommend sticking with the size 48 if you decide to go with the Jaws.

Both jackets have removable CE-certified Bio-Armor in the shoulders and elbows. The chest and back compartments have PE padding inside. However, the Bionic chest pads and Back Armor are available as an upgrade.

In a nut shell, if you want an extremely bad azz / aggressive cut street / track jacket, the Jaws is for you. If you want a little more overall comfort off the bike while still getting an aggressive fit the GP Plus is your main man.

Philipp W asked: Is the perforation on the all white version the same as all the others? The pictures make it seem as if the only perforated areas on the front are the "jaws", while on the other colours almost the entire front seems covered.

Keith M: Phillip, I see what you referred to in the photos, I however do not have the mostly white jacket, mine is the black & white version with the entire abdomen perforated. It's possible that the jacket will not be identical to the photo, as the picture could be of an early version. My jacket has more black than the photo I saw before ordering. Jul 16, 2014

A S asked: Does the Full white version have black accents on the back as well, like the other colors?

Haven't been able to find any more pictures regarding the full-white Jaws Jacket. Does anyone have any pictures that show the back of the full-white version?
Apr 12, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Christian R: The full white version should be the same exact opposite of the black version which has pictures. The black accents that you seen on the front of the white is also the same material on the back and everything that's not leather on the jacket is black; hence the accents similar to the front of the white jacket will be visible on the back as well.

A S asked: Perforated or non perforated? I'm worried that if I buy the perforated version I will be to cold in Early Spring/ Mid Fall riding. I live in NY and these seasons run around 50 degrees. Obviously this jacket seems ideal for summer once the thermal lining is removed.

Also if non perforated is suggested how would this compare to the new GP Plus R jacket (non perforated) warmer? cooler? THANKS

Robert K: I got this jacket last year and rode this past weekend in 45 degree weather.. It comes with the liner but I would recommend wearing a long sleeved shirt underneath. In hot weather it's unbeatable. I ordered a non-perf by accident and am really glad I returned it. It would have been WAY too hot for the summer. I live in Virginia btw. Apr 10, 2014
