Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pad
Extra protection for extra peace of mind
Replaced the flimsy foam pads that came standard in the Alpinestars jacket with these and can easily feel the difference; definitely a necessary piece to any A* jacket. As an added bonus, they make the jacket fit even better.

Not test rated
These are superior to cheap foam filler in my alpinestars jacket but I was disappointed that I did not see a CE rating on the pads. Please disregard this review if that are CE rated but no where on packaging or pads show it. They seem tough and I hope I never have to test them my self but I would like the peace of mind that they were tested to a standard. If have junk foam inserts in your jacket I would recommend getting these because they help a lot better the thin piece of foam.

Have you seen your foam pads?
Take the foam pads out of your jacket and it should be very obvious to you why these are beneficial. Considering how cheap they are, I honestly don't know why A*'s doesn't just make them stock in all of their jackets.
First time you take a rock thrown from a semi tire to the chest going 70mph, you will know why having more than just a foam/leather pad is worth the price.

I bought these for my Alpinestars T-GP Pro jacket and they fit in there great if you put them in there right. Personally I put them in upside down and put the plates on the opposite side because that felt more comfy to me. The only problem with that is they don't perfectly fit in the pocket of the jacket. Sometimes they manage to move the Velcro and try to fall out the bottom. I have to re-position them about once a month. Like I said I don't have them put in right because they feel more comfy this way. Overall they are very sturdy. They are also very good at helping the jacket deflect even more wind. While I wear them, I feel like they would stop a small caliber bullet. If I had to buy them again, I would.

Added piece of mind
I throw these chest protectors into my A* suit coupled with the Bionic Race Back Protector. Its an added peace of mind for a small monetary cost. It does make the suit a little bulkier in the chest area, however I do not feel the protectors while I am riding. They become one with the suit.
I'm going to throw these into my everyday riding jacket as well!
