Alpinestars TZ-1 Reload Leather Jacket 4.7 5 28 28
Awesome jacket. I bought this jacket after looking all over the internet for the right jacket. I wanted a black leather perforated jacket that was sleek and simple. The TZ-1 reload ended up being exactly what I wanted. After watching the video review on the website, I decided to go ahead and buy it. After going to my local motorcycle store to try on alpinestars jackets, I decided to order one size larger than I normally wear, because they seemed to fit a little small. I highly recommend this jacket. It flows well, looks great, and is comfortable. May 13, 2015
Excellent purchase with fantastic airflow!!! I absolutely love this jacket. Keep in mind, it's leather so it's not the lightest jacket, but it's still not bad at all. Fantastic airflow even in hot humid weather, as long as your moving obviously. The ONLY small complaint is that the shoulder pads need a little cushion between the pad and the shoulder, because they dig in a little but I don't even count that as a problem. Just something I've noticed. I live in south Mississippi, where the humidity is ungodly miserable and even this blacked out leather jacket doesn't cause me to sweat. I'd purchase again without hesitation. May 8, 2015
Great Jacket with great AirFlow The jacket has a good style, quality, airflow and protection. It fit a little big that I expected. April 7, 2015
Fit as expected I'm 5'7" 165 lbs, and I got a 50 Euro. I was on the high side of the waist dimension, and the low side of the hight dimension. I was going back and forth between a 50 and 52, and I'm glad I went with the 50. I tried a 52 in one of the more race oriented styles, and it fit like a glove, but being that this is more relaxed, the 50 was a better choice for the arm length. This is my first jacket with armor in it, so that might take a little getting used to. It digs into the elbows a little if I bend my arm, but it's pretty comfortable in riding position. Happy with my purchase, we'll see how it performs on a hot humid day once summer is in full swing. April 3, 2015
Great jacket I was extremely happy to find out that this jacket will hold 8 beers in its 4 pockets!!! 8 beers!!! March 30, 2015
Great multi-style jacket for warm weather This jacket is an amazing value, especially at the closeout price. I wanted a jacket that I could rock on more than one style of motorcycle and so I went with this jacket. It was my first actual motorcycle specific brand jacket and a European sizing at that. I measured my self and first went with a 50. It fit PERFECT. I mean right on tailored to my body. It was amazing. But there was a problem, while it looked and felt great, it was too aggressive. Since I would be wearing this while riding my harley I needed something more with a relaxed fit. So I exchanged it with a size 52. Still fits great but I'm able to wear a shirt and hoodie under it as well for cooler days and doesn't look skin tight on me for that ultra aggressive look that only looks good on sport bikes. Air flow is great. Wore it on a 40degree day with a hoodie and shirt underneath and after 20-30min of riding I had to change jackets because of the cool air coming in. I can see it will be great once it starts getting real hot. The jacket is built solid and I really like it for the price. The only downside is it doesn't have the newer waterproof pocket and the pocket inside is only closed off with velcro. Being made of mesh doesn't really make me feel any more secure of putting valuables in there either. I love the CE armor in the shoulders and elbows. Make sure you purchase the chest and back protectors. The foam that comes in the chest and back with the jacket is a joke and was definitely meant to be replaced. All in all it's a solid warm weather jacket. Versatile styling allows me to rock it on a cruiser but aggressive enough for a sport bike as well. 5'11 39-40in chest 150-155lbs March 29, 2015
Saved my elbows! I've had two spills on my bike now and both times my arms and torso have been well protected. I probably would have ground both my elbows to the bone without this jacket. Excellent protection, great style, worth it's weight in medical bills. 10/10 would come off bike while wearing this again. December 15, 2014
Great summer jacket. Well worth it for the money. This jacket is very comfortable once it's broken in and gives a feeling of safety when the fitment is right. I really don't like the use of velcro instead of snaps and the foam back protector will do next to nothing in a crash, definitely worth buying the optional back protector for peace of mind. The airflow is excellent but it doesn't come with a liner so it's going to be chilly in the winter. I selected this jacket because it did not have a "gp hump" and it was in my price range. I ride a dual sport so i felt the gp hump and race fit of other jackets wasn't conducive to my riding style and seating position. I owned a Dainese textile track jacket before this so i might be a little spoiled by the comfort and extra features of it, the textile shredded in a 30 mph lowside so i needed a leather alternative.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
JOE Z: nice jacket very good price Apr 26, 2015
Dave C: I wanted a summer leather jacket and I really like the murdered out look of this one. Plus I wanted something that didn't look like a track day jacket since I'm on a sports tourer, not a supersports. Feb 23, 2015
Ronald E: Great brand name, my 2nd Alpine Star jacket. Lots of perforation and low neck cuff are great for summer time. 12 reviews here at Revzilla confirmed my expectations. Feb 6, 2015
Frank N: I got this to stay cooler on hot summer days. 85 or 90 degrees is pretty warm in a heavyweight solid black leather jacket. Sep 29, 2014
Sean C: Wanted a warm weather protective jacket. Knee and elbow armor is good, will need back protector. Sale price was reasonable for a good jacket. I'll use when it's warm, then wear my heavier jacket. Oh, I like full 360 degree zipper, if I every get 'race'-type pants. Sep 18, 2014
GREGORY W: Good reviews all around. Seemed to fit the bill for what I wanted. Aug 17, 2014
Daniel P: GREATT Jacket. I live in South Florida. Sometimes I ride to work on my bike, even in the summer. I decided to try the jacket in the heat just to see if I can ride with it. It was do-able, but certainly hot. The airflow is great when riding, but leather is hot when stopped.

I went down wearing this jacket at low speeds ~25MPH and while my shoulder was sore, no scratches or cuts at all. Leather really is the best protection available. Highly recommend.

Rob E: Yes, all foam pads (back and chest) are removable. I wore this jacket through new england summer last year (85-90degree +) and it did get a little sweaty at red lights. 15mph+ it feels like someone kicked on the a/c haha. also during that summer i went down, t-boned a car and flew 175ft which broke my femur....jacket withstood the beating, kept me from having road rash and i still wear the same jacket to this day...excelent choice in my opinion!

All pads are removable. Not that you need to though cause it flows a ton of air.

Birett: It does not come with one but I can easily fit a thermal or not so thick sweater in the jacket. With just one of those on, I ride in 50 degree weather perfectly fine. Nov 27, 2012

Danny M: Euro. Im 5'11 175 lbs slender waist and legs with muscular upper body. I got the 54. It is just right. I got a 52 in a dianese laguna evo, too freakin tight! I sent it back and got this, which is supposed to fit a little bigger than dianese. Knowing that, I still went from a 52 to a 54, and it is just right. Any tighter and I couldn't shrug my shoulders around without stretching it. It is a nice jacket though. I have long arms and torso so I have to get long enough, and that leaves my arms looser than id like, but these are not custom fit too my body. Most people are gonna be less long, and a lil thicker than me. Mar 16, 2015
