Alpinestars Verona Air Jacket
This jacket is great in any thing over 75 degrees. Any less and it starts to get chilly. Ive ridden with this in over 90F and it feels like a long sleeve t-shirt. Very comfortable, form fitting and the armor feels like it would do its job.

Perfect Summer jacket
Jacket is awesome for summer rides. Very cool and breathable with lots of airflow. Comfortable and looks great on or off the bike.

TO HOT,Major disapointment
2. Protection and can be upgrade.
1. Is no cooler than my Alpine stars Cape Town Jacket.
So it was a waste of money to buy the Verona Air Jacket.
I did not return it because I had to test it in order to determine
how it would do in Houston.
The main reason I bought it was because the heat was
killing me and I had hope I could ride safe and not get too hot.
This jacket is not the answer to hot places like Houston.
2. It was expensive for no more than it is.
3. It is not easy to zip.
I am very disappointed in Revzilla review of this product,
He should have advised people to get the Cape Town for just
a few dollars more.

Awesome summer jacket, lightweight and very understated for wear off the bike. Flows air really well. The armour is neat it looks like a soft shell jacket.
It does fit really small. I'm normally XL-XXL dependent on brand and I went with a 3XL based on the reviews, which fits perfectly.
It's lacking a windproof / waterproof liner, which would make it a 3 season jacket instead of a 2 season one, but that's the only weakness.

This was an awesome purchase!
This was an awesome purchase! In warm weather, it feels like you're just wearing a T-Shirt, yet you have protection and lots of pockets. Only ridden in a light rain so far and it is definitely water resistant - can't speak to how it protects in a heavy rain. Awesome purchase - amazing deal!! Although, it is sized very small. I'm about 5'9" and 220 pounds. I usually wear and XL, but based on my experience with Alpinestar, I went with a 3XL and it fits very well, but be warned, the Italian manufracture tends to size things very small.

A good product that fits my needs
I purchased this jacket to ride in the summer in Colorado. I ride to work and go in the mountains during the weekend. The jacket offers great flow even in town. I ride un upright sport bike and the reach to the handlebar is easy and comfortable. The waist adjustment easy. The fit is snug, the style is not flashy which was what I wanted. The protection appears good, but I have not tested it in an accident. I transferred a back plate from another jacket, very easily done. The jacket is not see through, which is a plus when you wear a light color shirt. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

Nice lightweight jacket
I got this 2 weeks ago, added the back protector (this is a must) and it's just great. I love this thing. It does not scream "I'm on a motorcycle" and it nice and light. This is my go to summer jacket.

Fits Super Small But Packs MASSIVE Protection!
Well... I bought this jacket a few weeks ago and had to exchange it since it was too small. (No big deal, Revzilla is cool about these things.) These jackets are normal sized for the chest/arms/shoulders, but the length down to your belt seems to run short. Other than that, just go one size up and you'll be totally fine!
Oddly enough here I am.. I crashed today riding with the Verona Air jacket and the protection was AMAZING. The jacket got torn up quite a bit on my arms, but I had NO road rash, it would have been so much worse without it. Felt like I had a tank of armor around me.
But here's the deal... It's super lightweight and keeps you ultra cool in high temp weather. So much air flow it's crazy. (I wouldn't ride with it in the winter (without more layers), but for the fall/summer/spring it's PERFECT). When riding it doesn't even feel like a jacket, instead it feels like a long sleeve shirt. It's THAT comfortable. I also love the elbow/shoulder protection and the mesh design/etc.
Honestly, the best in protection and comfort with a sleek style no other brand can match/top. I can't say enough about it.. Hands down my favorite jacket ever. I'm going to buy a second one from Revzilla since I enjoyed it so much.
Oh yeah, the price offers a TON of value. This should really be priced around $500, I'm shocked to be honest...
I don't have much else to say and am pretty worn out from the crash today. But I signed up on here real quick just to say it's a freaking phenomenal jacket. Worth it.
