Alpinestars Stella Sigma Drystar Jacket
works great but not comfy around the neck
I have used this without the lining in texas dry summer riding with the zippers open and while moving i was fine. At stops not so cool but that is expected from a jackeet designed for water proofing and cooler temps. With the liner it stays very warm and water proof, keeping my core warm riding in the 30s.. however.. my biggest complaint is the neck. Where it zips up in the front and latches over is uncomfortably seated on my throat in the sport bike leaning forward position (im shorter so i lean forward quite a bit). Also without the liner, there is an annoying piece of velcro in the back that catches the base of my ponytail. I put a piece of 3m velcro over it but i think they should have thought that through better. I tend to leave the top of the zipper open a little and tuck in the flap to fix that part, so in winter i end up wearing a neck gator to keep the warmth in on my neck. All in all it works great and i use it often. It fits the same as my other alpinestars jackets and it will definitely keep you warm with the liner (and neck gator) and my shirts stay dry underneath in the rain. I like placement of the protective armor.

Glad I bought this
1st time out w/this jacket, I went down Highway 1 & a little ways into the redwoods. The weather was chilly & damp & I dealt w/a little rain. This jacket was perfect. Even without the liner, I was warm & comfortable. Didn't get soaked. I don't know how it'll do in a downpour, but 20 minutes or so of showers and a ton of drizzle were no problem.
Velcro waist fasteners are not ideal, but they're all right. Ditto for wrists. 2 logos are rubber/plastic, pretty dumb, but at least they aren't huge & there aren't many.
This jacket, like my other AStars jacket, seems to run small.
All in all, I'm really glad I got this jacket. It does its job really well, it's put together nicely, and it looks good. It's a good deal for the $.

I have never been disappointed with an Alpinestar purchase. Jacket was comfie. Liner is cool. On those chilly nights just snap in the liner and your good to go. Also, this will not be the last time I order from Revzilla. Fast, free shipping A++. Only gripe would be to the delivery guy, box was just about open when I got it. Would have been upset had item fallen out!

Excelent jacket, very comfortable my girlfriend love it.
Hi, i bought this jacket for my girlfriend and she love it, buuuut is the first jacket we´ve use cause i´m i relative new street driver, what can i tell is that the features are great, airflow system works very well, i little thing to be consider is that the rainnig liner is attached to the heating liner so you cannot separate them but that is not really a problem, the jacket look really nice and if you are going to use it on a very cold weather it should work i use it on a 70 degrees area and works perfect, it is also good for higher temperatures.

I wanted a good-looking winter jacket with body armor and tried a lot of jackets on in my local bike shop, as well as looked at tons online. I think that this coat is one of the best-looking out there. The material and workmanship are incredible, too. I recommend going up one size: I'm 5'5", 115 lbs. and usually wear a SM but exchanged it for a MED. If the shoulder armor doesn't sit quite right, it's probably too small. (The turn-around time for exchanges is very quick, BTW.)
I love Revzilla. They are my default bike store for almost everything.

I am really liking this jacket, the sale price is great too! I also bought the SAS-TEC back protector and it fits well inside the pocket.

Great cool weather jacket
I purshased this jacket for my girlfriend as a late fall, winter, and early spring riding jacket. The jacket comes with a removable liner that is also very warm. The jacket ran a bit small but the return was handled smoothly by Revzilla. So far the only complaint that my girlfriend has is that the collar is a bit uncomfortable when in the riding position.
