Alpinestars Megaton Drystar Jacket 4.5 5 50 50
Great jacket! This jacket is very comfortable! The multiple layers are great for riding any time! Not to mention it's a nice looking jacket! I would definitely recommend this to anyone! June 8, 2015
Nice riding jacket Not too much to say really, good jacket for the price. I was looking for a jacket that would work well in the hot summer months and this jacket appears to meet the mark very well. Only issue i have found is that the sleeves seem a bit short otherwise everything fits great. May 28, 2015
Great Jacket for the Price I've worn this jacket for a couple of months now and I am very happy with it. It is very warm on the highway at 75 mph down in to the high 40s. I haven't tried it when it is colder out. The collar is a bit stiff at first but it softens as you wear it. I haven't been caught in the rain yet so I can't comment on its "waterproofness". There are a TON of zippered vents on this thing. One on each arm, one over each armpit in the front and one on each side of the lower back. 6 in total! Take the liners out and open all of the vents and you are set on a warm day. The only downside is if you have a backpack on you block the armpit vents at least partially. It doesn't bother me though. The arm adjusting bands are great for adjusting between having the liners in and not. They help keep the armor where it is supposed to be. On your elbows. This jacket zips to the current Alpinestars express drystar overpants which is what I wear this jacket with. This has been mentioned in other reviews and my only complaint is the liners could be better secured in the jacket. They have a tendency to shift around when you are trying to put the jacket on. Once you get it on and situated correctly, the entire jacket fits well and stays where you need it, but it can be a little bit of a process to get it on sometimes. Fits well when riding both a sport touring (Kawasaki ZR-7S) and a sport bike (Yamaha R6). I bought the large back protector with this and it fits this large jacket perfectly. I went with a large. I'm 6'0" 180lbs. normal proportions. No belly. Sorry, I don't have a tape measure around to give you measurements. Overall a warm yet well vented, comfortable, versatile and good valued jacket. I would highly recommend. May 11, 2015
Great Price, Slight Discomfort This is an excellent jacket! It comes with two liners that make it super snug and warm -- each being able to be removed separately. There is excellent ventilation for warmer riding and great sweat control. The jacket comes with some light protection as well as straps on the arms to adjust the fit. As other reviewers have pointed out, there is slight discomfort around the neck area scraping, but it's only really been bothersome after a couple hours of riding. All in all, a wonderful jacket, with only a bit of discomfort. Definitely recommend this jacket, especially while it's on sale! May 4, 2015
Great jacket for the price. Happy with it so far. Great cold weather jacket even on my naked ZX10R. Worn it in 30 degree weather and kept me warm on my 40 min commute. Haven't worn it much in warmer weather. I have only had it for a few weeks. I'm 5' 8" 200 lbs bought a large. Fits well with a t-shirt & hoodie with the quilted liner in its a little tight but not uncomfortable. I just need to not be so fat. April 28, 2015
Wear your gear! Okay. First, I don't write reviews. But on my way home tonight I had to lay my bike down to prevent hitting a truck that pulled out in front me or go into a ravine. I was going a least 45 mph and laid the bike down on blacktop. When the bike stopped, I was yelling at the guy that pulled out in front of me. Immediately, I realized I was okay. The guy apologized profusely! He said he never saw me. He was very sincere and upset. A nasty bend in the road made it almost impossible for him to see me as I rounded the turn. I got up and walked around. Other than a nasty abrasion on my right hand I was fine! This is my first accident on a road bike. Dirt bikes? Well there have been a few :) I'm 55 and can tell you I'm fine because of my gear! I will get up tomorrow, like any other day, and go to work. I didn't require medical attention. I'm very fortunate tonight! It wasn't any one piece of equipment that saved me from serious injury tonight but all of it combined. This is what I was wearing when I went down: Nolan N86 Helmet Alpinestars GP Air Gloves Forcefield Limb Tubes - Knee protection Alpinestars Megaton Drystar Jacket My right glove was torn, my right sleeve was shredded, and my pants were shredded at the right knee. My only injury was a nasty abrasion on my right hand, at the base of my pinky, where the material wore through the glove. Alpinestars - Suggestion: Place a piece of Kevlar in the glove from the the pinky to the palm along the outside edge of the hand. If the glove wouldn't worn through at the base of my pinky I would walked away with zero injuries! Please don't get me wrong. The gloves did their job! I'm typing this without pain! But a little more material in this area and the gloves would be a 10! Now I would rate them a 9+ and will buy them again. Bottom line - There is no one piece of equipment that will thoroughly protect you from serious injury. It's the culmination of all your gear that will allow you to walk away from a wreck. Tonight, I can attest that all this gear works. But only if you wear your gear. Wear your gear! Wear your gear! Wear your gear! Be safe! Paul April 28, 2015
Great jacket for warm and cold(ish) weather I have had the jacket for a couple weeks now and am very happy with it. Most of my riding has been in the warm Southern California weather. I have left the wind stop liner in and have always been comfortable with some of the vents open. I've also ridden in the mornings when it's in the high 50's and have still been comfortable. I don't plan on riding in any weather much colder than that so I probably will never need the included thermal liner. April 27, 2015
Amazing Jacket This is a very versatile jacket. My only gripe is that the collar on the insulation layer rubs a little bit, turtle neck required. April 21, 2015

Ronald P: Love this jacket. It's 32+ degrees outside and I don't feel any cold to my body. It fits snug in the waist so if you're portly this jacket isn't for you. I'm just barely able to squeeze into an XL with my 36 waist - LOL, but it sure makes me look strong after I do.

All I could see from the video was inside pockets that look elasticated - correct?

George M: Hi,

The outside has two zippered pockets where pockets are normally located, left and right sides just above the waist.

When you unzip the jacket, just inside on the left is another zippered pocket. This is soft lined for a phone or watch or something.

Then inside on both the left & right are larger Velcro closer pockets that are deeper than the zippered pockets.

Plenty of room for the basics. If you need more storage but don't want anything crazy big. I use ICON's smallest tank bag. That fits my spare visor and everything else I need and it's accessible without removing my gloves which is key.

Good luck!

nicholas a: Yes there are two zippered pockets on the outside of the jacket at the sides along the waist line as well as a zippered large cell phone pocket on the upper inside left of the jacket. Trust me this thing has no shortage of pockets. Its a great jacket its held up fantastically over the year + ive had it and i ride almost everyday rain or shine. Definitely recommend it. But also there are three layers to this so it might be a good idea to get a half size smaller than normal so that in summer when the liners are out its not loose fitting just my 2 cents. Jan 5, 2015

Lenny A: GREAT jacket! It is my "cold weather" jacket so I don't remember the pocket set up without both liners.
outside pockets do zip. there is a high inside breast pocket that also zips, as well as 3 pockets (just below breast pkt/2 on left & 1 on rt) on the liner with velcro closure.
comfortable on a Daytona 675R with a backpack

A shopper asked: I know the question about water proof has been asked, but I want to clarify. It seems to imply that the liner is what makes this jacket water proof (or resistant). I want to know specifically if it can handle some rain without a liner in it. I would not expect it to handle an all day or very hard rain, but if I get caught out in a short duration light rainfall, will it keep the rain out without the liner?

Also, does it have a zipper for attaching it to the pants that mates with the Andes pants zipper that is nearly 360 degrees?
May 25, 2014

Philip S: This jacket will NOT keep the rain out without the liner. It's just like any other textile jacket without the liner.

I usually keep the liner in my backpack on days with a small chance of rain & if it does catch me while out on the road, I just pull under some shelter and zip the liner in. Putting the liner in took a little while to get used to since there are several zippers & I kept getting them mixed up and thought that there was something wrong with the jacket. I was just using the wrong zippers. On one side of the jacket, the rain liner zipper is on the rain liner, on the other side, the zipper is on the actual jacket. I don't understand why they made it that way, but whatever, it works & keeps me completely dry!

It DOES have a zipper in the back for pants.

John H: Yes, it is water-resistant without the liner. I've ridden through some moderate rain without the liner, and it's done a fair job. And yes it does have a waist zipper -- I've connected it to the Astars Switch pants with no issues, and I assume it'd work just as easily for other Astars pants. Really love this jacket. It even works well in warmer temps with the vents open. May 26, 2014
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Nate B: In my experience Not really. The outter shell is like a canvas material and is great for spring riding but it in rainy riding conditions soaks up water enough that you will feel damp if not wet with out the water proof liner. Good thing though is if its a light passing shower your riding through with out the liner, the jacket dries up pretty quick. Hope this help. May 28, 2014

Jim S: Thanks for those quick responses. I am getting ready to exchange the Andes pants as the sizing was not right, even after consulting with the guys at Revzilla. Fortunately, they are great to deal with - I won't mail order riding gear from anyone else on line! Looks like I'll be ordering a new Jacket soon too. May 26, 2014
Reply to Jim Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Nicolas V: The jacket is quite thick with 2 liners. If you leave the rain one out, it will still take a significant amount of rain to soak you. I rode in pouring rain for about 10 min and was still dry.

I can't tell about the pant fitting, I do not own these pants

A shopper asked: I need a size recomendation. I'm always between sizes. Here, I am possibly between a medium and a large. I'm short at 5'7" and weigh a touch under (or over just after Christmas) 170 lb. My chest is 40 inches and my waist is 34 inches. Medium or Large?? Jan 11, 2015

ALEXANDER C: It definitely fits tight, IMHO, especially when all layered up. Both liners make for snug fit. Jan 11, 2015
Reply to ALEXANDER Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
George S: I would recommend a large. By the sound of it I'm just a little smaller than you and I purchased a medium but with both layers inside the jacket it's pretty tight on me. I am about 5'6" with a 32 waist at 142. Chest, not to sure but seems to me like a large might do you more justice In the comfort area. I would only recommend trying a medium if you don't plan on using the two inner layers it comes with but even then seems kind of iffy to me.. Hope that helps Jan 12, 2015
Reply to George Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Grant Arthur T: Medium all the way... You don't want it fitting too loose or it won't protect you in a fall. I have a 40 chat at as well and can wear it with a separate back protector with no issues.

Great purchase... Totally usable for all seasons of riding where I am from (Vancouver BC)
Jan 12, 2015
Joshua W: I would go with the large. I'm 6'1" and had to get an XL for the sleeve length and the chest. My measurement was 43" across the chest. You can always return it and get the medium Jan 15, 2015

A shopper asked: I'm a fairly tall guy about 6'3" 6'4". I'm just wondering if the jacket will come down my back far enough to keep me warm and dry. instead of riding up like some jackets do? Jun 11, 2014

Jon R: I'm 6-feet and wear the XL; as Michael A said, it hits about mid-zipper on jeans. It's definitely not a sport cut jacket. I'd say it is in between sport cut and touring. Unlike touring jackets I've tried, this one doesn't bunch up in the front when sitting, and unlike sportier jackets, it doesn't ride up in the back. I think it is a very good length. Note also that if you have appropriate pants, there is a zipper in the bottom rear so you can zip the jacket and pants together to eliminate any worries about the jacket riding up. Jun 13, 2014
Reply to Jon Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Philip S: You can buy a spoiler for this jacket that comes down about 6-8 inches more in the back. Sizing on the spoilers are weird though. I believe I had to buy a Large spoiler to match my Medium jacket. That doesn't work with all sizes though but you can always return for a different size and only have to pay return shipping for the original item. Jul 1, 2014
Reply to Philip Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael A: I'm 5'8, the jacket comes down way farther then some other jackets I've owned, for me it comes down to about mid zipper on my regular jeans. For someone who is 6'3, depending on how long your torso is, it's probably gonna be right on the belt line of your jeans.

Hope this helps.

Jason H: What size jacket did you order being 5'8"? Oct 16, 2014
Michael A: I ordered a LG, but with my beer gut, should've ordered a XL, its kinda tight around my belly, but if your fit, you'll have no issues. Oct 16, 2014

Stephen G asked: Hey, I'm 5'9" 165 lbs with an athletic build (I lift). And can't decide between a medium and a large. It's my understanding that this fits quite snugly. Any advice? TIA Mar 28, 2015

William L B: I am 6'0" 180lbs and the large fits me perfect in the chest and shoulders with all of the liners in. If you are muscular in the shoulders and/or chest you may need to go on the bigger side.

If you are between sizes, order the smaller one. If it is too small return it for the next size up. I find this easier than starting big. If you start small you can rule out that size, but if you start big you won't know if you should stay a little big or try the smaller one.

nicholas a: It should fit snug as there three layers to this jacket if its loose with all the layers in it'll be a bag in the wind by the time you get it down to just the mesh layer. I used the sizing chart alpine provided and had no problems with fit. Mar 28, 2015

Joshua W: I would say the medium should fit fine. You don't want the jacket to be loose. I'm 6'1" 220 with an athletic build and broad shoulders so I had to get the XL. You're probably in between the M-L as I was between the L-XL Mar 31, 2015

Andrew H asked: I noticed this is listed as an all weather jacket. Would it be comfortable when it gets up to 75-80F? I would love to be able to where it all year. It's fairly mild where I'd be wearing it, I'd say from mid 30s in winter to 85F in summer. Dec 9, 2013

Jon R: I live in Texas and have been riding in 80+ F degree weather for a few months now; lately we've seen temps in the low- to mid-90s. I've found the jacket to be acceptable in the 80s and not too bad in the 90s but then my commute is only around 20 minutes.

Unlike say a mesh jacket, this jacket doesn't breath well (but then you're also better protected), so it is all about the vents -- they're located in good positions and they do work, but they're heavily depending on you moving and flowing air through them; if you sit still in this jacket too much (as I have to in traffic sometimes) you do start to get uncomfortable. I'm actually looking at summer mesh jackets right now as the temps around here are only going to get higher and I can see this jacket not really working well once we're regularly in the 100s.

However, I will say this jacket is very good in cooler weather. I wore it down into the 30s and 40s on numerous occasions this winter and was not uncomfortable; in fact, I was very impressed. I recommend using the winter liner that comes with it; anytime I tried using some kind of pullover or other garment in its place (even multiple layers) they simply didn't compare to the default liner's ability to keep out the cold.

Justin B: Yes, I bought this jacket when it was in the 80s and 90s, and was so comfortable with the ventilation system opened up. Airflow design works really well. And now I am wearing it in the 30s and 40s and it keeps me very warm. Would recommend to anyone. Great jacket! Dec 21, 2013

A shopper asked: Does this jacket have the snaps for the Alpinestars race back protector? The race back protector is the one that snaps to the jacket instead of being inserted in the pocket. Oct 5, 2014

George M: No snaps here guy. Just the standard pocket design. Also, this isn't really a race/track styled jacket. I'm confident that the back protector you've mentioned would fit in the pocket provided on this jacket.

I hope this helped you.

Ride safe.......

A shopper asked: Is there any space or pocket on the jacket to store the rain and warm liner when removed? I would like to keep them with the jacket and not carry around a bag just for the liners. Can they be store on the jacket? if so where? Jun 6, 2015

Brad K: There is no storage. I wear this jacket only in the winter and have never needed to remove any layers. I live in Atlanta, Ga and ride as long as the temp is above 30f. Above 55f I wear a different jacket. Jun 6, 2015

A shopper asked: Is the chest armor upgradable too? The description only mentions "CE certified Bio Armor back protector insert available as accessory". Alpine Stars offers some nicer chest pads and I'd want to know if they will fit in the compartments on the "Megaton" before buying. Sep 17, 2013
