Love this Jacket!
I'm 6 2' / 140 lbs small guy.. And I bought a Size 52 and it fits GREAT! Only thing I'd change is I wish it had another 1/2 " to the Arm Length. Definitely would recommend this jacket to anyone if willing to pay for it.

Most Excellent
For starters, I'm a big dude. 5'11" 265lbs. I ordered a size 64 and it honestly feels as if it was custom tailored to fit me. I was rather worried I'd strike out with Alpinestars's sizing but to my luck it was perfect and true to the numbers. The comfort is world class and the flexibility amazed me. It doesn't feel lose anywhere but I also have 100% range of movement. The sleeves were a hint long when at rest but in riding posture it was once again perfect. Air flow is on point, no complaints there. You really can't go wrong with this jacket so for my fellow big bros, have no fear. The added bonus is the style is as solid as its function, the low profile stealth design is wicked in my opinion and has already received compliments.

Looks good but....
After seeing the results of a fabric jacket after a crash, I decided to upgrade to leather. This was not an easy decision to make because I live in Squid Nation (Florida). So ordering a leather jacket for down here is like ordering a heated blanket when you're in hell.

But I do quite a bit a highway riding and I still think leather would outperform fabric in a slide test. The leather on this jacket is nice, with very consistent grain. All the protected areas are quite larger than on some of my other jackets. The stitching seems good. The airflow is as good as it can be expected for a perforated leather. Still, this jacket is heavy, especially with the matching back protector.

There are 2 negatives I found;

1) The first one is subjective. God Almighty, AlpineStar is quite a bit narcissistic with this one. This jacket has over 12 logos on it. I mean there is no danger of an identity crisis. Thankfully, the logos are just embroidered, so a black marker will tone down the billboard advertisement.

2) That zipper belongs on a chef apron, not on a piece of safety gear. Despite having a flat stomach, this thin zipper can and will unzip itself from the bottom. It's a very thin zipper and honestly doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. I'm looking to get mine changed by a much heavier YKK zipper. This zipper is why I can't give a 5 star.

Perhaps on the 3rd iteration of this jacket, AlpineStar will spend more on the zipper and less on the logos...

Awesome Jacket!
I bought this jacket a few days ago because I decided that when I'm inevitably in a fall, I'd like to continue to have the use of my arms, lungs, heart, stomach, etc...

Alrighty, measurements... I'm 6' tall, 140 lbs, with a 38" chest tapering down to a 28-30" waist. I bought the size USA 40/EU 50 jacket and it fits me nearly like a glove.

I have fairly long arms so I went with that size since I normally wear shorty gloves and didnt want a large gap between the end of the sleeve and my glove. As a result, the torso bunches just ever so slightly when I'm on my bike but that's no fault of the jacket. That's just the fact that I'm a pretty skinny dude with a long frame.

The features of this jacket are absolutely wonderful. I ride a naked bike so as a result, I get amazing airflow through the perforations. Those of you with fully faired bikes may want to look into something that has more ventilation but that's kind of the name of the game with leather anyway.

the locking zippers are small, but robust, and the fact that they lock is a really nice feature that gives me a little extra peace of mind if I decide to throw my watch in my jacket pocket while I ride (the sleeves fit pretty close so wearing a watch with the sleeves zipped up is fairly uncomfortable)

The shoulder and forearm protection is very comfortable and I barely notice them when I'm riding. It's also nice that I can throw the Nucleon back protector in to go CE Level 2 if I decide to shell out the extra money (Which I will be doing probably my next pay day)

It's also nice to have the zipper for the pants if I decide to hit the track and want a little more protection.

I do agree with the Revzilla guys that it would be nice to have some snapped loops to hook to the belt on my normal riding jeans as I'll probably never wear the zipped pants on my daily commute. But that's a small gripe and it definitely didn't deter me from buying this awesome jacket.

All in all I'd have to say that this is an awesome jacket, and while I hope and pray that I never have to test its protective quality, I'm very confident that if the day ever does come where I do tip over, this jacket will do a good job of keeping me whole.

Definitely buy this jacket. $460 is no small investment for a guy like me, but I'd much rather spend a few hundred and stay safe, than end up spending thousands being laid up in hospital.

Serious protection for everday street use!
PRO:
Leather quality is amazing! Sizing is spot on ( just use the chart and go a size up if in between). Colors are deep and beautiful and overall construction is good.Not sure why I waited so long to upgrade to leather. I don't have many negative things to say about the jacket. But I will try to list a few.

CONS: Heavier than I expected, you must replace the cheap foam pads with the Nucleon pads, doesn't seem like it will vent very well (but its freaking leather).

Overall I am very happy with my purchase and I would recommend this jacket to anyone who is serious about race grade protection for everyday use.

I am loving this jacket!
This jacket is awesome. It has amazing airflow, awesome build quality and great protection. The combination of stretch fabric and leather stretch panels make this jacket very easy to use when you ride. It also looks very nice, not over complicated but with some great refined details. Overall, this is a very great jacket. For sizing reference, I am 6' 1" and 150 lbs, my chest is 37 - 38 and the USA size 40 fits me perfect.

Great jacket
Love this jacket... Very stylish and durable and while I haven't had to test the protection it feels like it would very good for that as well. I almost wish I got the non perf version because the airflow is so good that I'm borderline cold on 60 degree days but I'm naturally cold. Only complaint is the left shoulder pad will sometimes shift and cause some pain, but it's not bad. I would buy this jacket again and anything else from Alpinestars.
