Alpinestars Track Protection Vest
This vest is great, stays in place. I wore it first time for two days at Code's CA superbike school in WillowSprings. It fit nice under my Spidi RR Wind Pro suit. I didn't know I had it on, didn't add any weight, heat, or flexibility issues.
The only minor issue I have with it is getting my arms out the suit. The back of the suit will "stick" or get caught on top of the vest's back protector. You can get out, but having a buddy just pull your suit over the back protector is easier. Other than that the vest is a great buy and versatile. I will be wearing it for street riding under my street jacket.

Good snug vest for short trips or under a not so snug suit
Bought the vest to go under suit for back and extra chest protection. Works well although a little snug under the leathers. Vents well and very stylish. Although don't feel great about it (always should wear full protection), wear vest for short commute to work when I take bike or around town. Very pleased with purchase.

I love this vest! Although the back protector doesn't feel as beefy as I would like, it does cover very well and its rated well.
The vest breaths extremely well when riding and the fit is perfect.
I'm 5'10, 150 lbs. with a 38' chest, The Medium is a perfect fit for me. Snug yet it doesn't squeeze you. The material is soft and very flexible. You could wear this without a t-shirt underneath and be just fine, that's how comfy it feels.

Excellent Product, best looking vest without looking like its meant for dirt bikes
I love the style of this vest, I like it because of the exposed back armor looks awesome, and it goes down to the waist in the front unlike other vests available with armor (and looks like it doesn't belong on a dirtbike). The size is a bit small so I'd suggest ordering a size up however it is stretchy material so I was able to stretch it over my gut.

This Track vest is perfect to wear under a un-armored jacket out in the city. I prefer to wear this under my leather jacket that has no padding; rather than purchasing an entirely new leather jacket designed for riding that comes with pads. Fits well and is not bulky.

I chose this vest to provide some chest protection under my Vanson suit and to upgrade my back protector for street riding. The vest is very comfortable and I have not noticed the back protector at all. The vest seems true to size and is in no way constrictive when turning laterally or forward. It is a breeze to zip on and off. The sewing detail is very good and I give the overall construction of the vest high marks. It's a great bit of kit.
