Alpinestars Track Protection Vest
Great product for daily commute and sprited riding
This track vest is awesome! I use it for my occasional daily commute, and for my spirted rides (track or weekend warrior). The vest fits perfectly on me (large,200lbs, bit of a belly, and muscular build up top) feels like its not even there. Will fit comfortably under a race suit, or a padded jacket. Protective back shell is removeable and fits inside my AS backpack as an insert (AS techpak). Great product, and a few of my ride friends also feel the same about its quality!

Great air flow and comfortable
This vest has been a great purchase so far. I bought a large based on the staff recommendation. I'm 6'1", 215lbs and it fits very nice. Not too snug. The airflow is great and keeps me comfortable during the 80+ degree rides. The back plating isn't even noticeable during rides. Great product!

It fits over my fat belly and seems to provide decent protection, but I wouldn't really know for sure since I haven't been in an accident with it. The only complaint I can make is that it seems that the top of the back protector comes up a bit too high and nudges against my helmet if I tilt my head back. Usually don't notice it though.

Great product fits nice and snug
This item is great. I was using a cheap field armor vest to commute around town and decided to go with this nice piece from alpinestars. First off it fit nice and snug and dissapears as you start to ride. Air flow is awesome for hot summer days. Also very stylish with the all white back protector and feels secure for a basic vest to just throw on real quick. Wearing this vest under a full suit gives great protection against your back which was my main concern. Overall would recommend everyone to try it out!

I love the vest design with the spine brace built in. Wear it under my jacket, or by itself on extremely hot days. Great flexibility, really comfortable. Fits a bit tight.

AlpineStars Track Vest
So far i like the product. Its nice being able to take my suit off and leave the vest on. My only problem is that my suit is pretty tight so when i go to pull my suit over the vest, the vest rides up some and becomes bunched at the top, takes another person to push it back down into the correct location. I ordered a M and i am 5'11" 167lbs wear a size 42 suit. Thanks, hope this helps.

So damm dope.
Haven't crashed to test its performance it looks dank AF on me. The fit is wonderful and very comfortable as well as pretty light for what it is. The softer padding has holes in it to vent, and they work great. Even being a black vest, it's fairly cool in the sun. My only two recommendations are to have a cell phone pocket somewhere (like inside the zipper would be nice) and offering different color options. Oh I forgot to mention that the back protector is removable by zipper. Even just different colored back protectors would be easy for them to do, and would match up with a lot of their other products. I actually think they're discontinuing this product, and I'm assuming it's because of the price, but if u want some protection on hot summer days, but don't wanna look like robocop, it's well worth it. I may buy another one actually. In case they really do discontinue it (like I did with the alpinestars S-1 gloves)

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.
