Alpinestars TZ-1 Reload Leather Jacket 4.7 5 22 22
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.

An Alpinestars jacket that fits a 6'3", 300lb man. 6'3" 300 lbs, wearing a size 64. Fits well, very comfortable. Well made, durable, well ventilated. Stylish. Happy to find an A-Stars jacket that fits! I'm buying the bionic inserts! May 22, 2014
Great Jacket, Great Price I was pretty thrilled when I received this piece of leather. Very sturdy, stylish and fits me very well for being a bigger guy. Being larger I was kind of skeptical but after trying it on it was perfect, the velcro waist adjusters help as well. Has a well amount of armour, and I love the fact you can add the racing hump if you so choose. Overall a great jacket for the price. April 16, 2014
Great Protection ! This beauty of a jacket helped me avoid hurting my shoulder when I laid down my bike on the freeway and fracturing my elbow. Luckily I had this jacket on and plus you can't even notice the scrapes and scratches it endured from the fall. If I hadn't worn this jacket I would of broken my elbow instead. Good stealth looking jacket which also ventilates great. Thanks Revzilla for the speedy delivery January 7, 2014
Great summer jacket Sizing: 6ft, 36"waist, 42" chest, 200lbs Im on the far end of a 52 so I decided to size one up and get the 54. Size is great and happy that I went one up. The jacket is by no means baggy but allows for some room to layer if required and some room for airflow when i suck in the gut. You can really feel the cool air piercing you when you do this. If it was too tight, you wouldnt have this relief. This thing flows a ton of air so as a standalone jacket, its only good for summer. If you get it skin tight, you wont be able to use it for the other 3 seasons since you cant layer. Also, you wont be able to add the back and chest armour as easily. I love that it ties to my Alpinestars Oxygen Air overpants (when I remember to). Overall, a really nice jacket, but my one gripe is that its slightly baggy in the biceps as can be seen in some of the videos. Stillm its not bad that its noticed but I see it. December 3, 2013
Excellent fit, great ventelation, good armor I live and ride in Colorado. We typically get 40 deg temp swings on summer days in the Denver area. So I can start a ride at 60 deg F, but by 1:00pm it will be 100 deg! And if I start a ride in a mountain town above 9000 ft elevation, the ride can start at 40 deg F. Consequently, LAYERING is a way of life here. I decided to purchase this jacket since it has a perforated design and is available in white - all to minimize the heat load at those high temps. I then layer ON TOP of the jacket for the cold temps. The jacket fits snug but not too tight, with minimum bulk; so layering on top of the jacket is easily accomplished with my standard quiver of non-motorcycle insulated jackets. I was pleasantly surprised by the nice, zippered "Napoleon" pocket and several internal pockets with Velcro closures. I am 5'9" and 155lbs. I have a 38-40 inch chest. I ordered Euro size 50 and it fits great. Some others commented that the sleeves were a little long, but I don't find this to be true. I ride an adventure touring bike with an upright position. I find the fit to be as described - it isn't as aggressive as a racing suit, but isn't as relaxed as a "cruiser" style jacket like a Harley rider would want. The elbow and shoulder protection is great. The chest and back protection is sub-standard however - just some whimpy open-cell foam. I recommend ordering the better armor available from Alpinstar for the back and chest. Despite my decision to upgrade the armor as described above, I think the jacket is an excellent value.

Great jacket for warmer weather This is my first motorcycle jacket and I couldn't be more happier. The jacket breathes very well and is easy to modify while on the bike. My first long ride started in 93 degree weather. With the forearm zippers open but the cuffs still velcro'd closed and the chest zipper about 3/4ths zipped I had great airflow. An hour later, I was riding through the fog on the coast in mid 60's. I quick zip of the arms and chest while riding and I was good to go. The Jacket fits well and feels very sturdy. The back insert is kinda lacking so I will most likely be upgrading, but I was expecting that. Overall, great jacket. September 11, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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.
