Really wanted something that was lighter and cooler to wear in this TEXAS heat, but still offer some protection!
C H on Dec 2, 2016
I am very well and feel very comfortable, I feel protected when I use it.

It can go under many different jackets, but be prepared to look like a hunchback when you're off the bike. It provides the best back protection and has extra harder padding on the chest. It is worth it.
Alan A on Jun 15, 2016
I like body armor to protect my back and chest. Big high sides can hurt
Matt M on Jun 13, 2016
Protection and nice style.
James J on Feb 14, 2016
Because I wanna wear something light but still have protection
Jay K on Jan 9, 2016
Friends recommendation and safety.
R a on Oct 18, 2015
design is relatively solid still offers solid back protection standalone during summer or under jacket for colder weather...
Jutas F on Oct 11, 2015
I needed armor for commute and everyday riding.
A S on Jul 23, 2015
To protect my body from impacts.
Thomas F on Apr 20, 2015
because it's convenient to wear
SOJI B on Mar 17, 2015
I needed a good solution for hot weather riding on daily commutes, as well as, spirited driving. my alpinestars tech pack held up really well in that lowside crash, and I am still using it today.
rafael m on Feb 24, 2015
fits perfect and great protection

reading your reviews/seeing videos
michael j b on Sep 30, 2014
I wanted some extra back protection for under my leathers, its not too bulky. Im very happy with it.
Jerome D on Aug 24, 2014
Returned. Too too big!
Dmitry B on May 8, 2014
I needed back protection for my new jacket and opted to get a protective vest instead of a jacket-based insert. Pretty cool so far.
JoshB on May 7, 2014
I was looking for something to augment my leather riding jacket. This vest will fill the void in padding and also be useful when the temp and humidity rise through the summer here in Bermuda.
David B on Mar 2, 2014
Commuting protection!!!
Alexis G on Nov 16, 2013
Based on reviews and knowing alpinestars to be a top brand in motox sport science I was a kid, and didnt want to go cheap on protection.
Brandan B on Oct 1, 2013
Looks like solid build, haven't used yet but fits comfortably.
Roberto H on Apr 4, 2017
I wanted an extra level of protection in addition to my jacket.
Denny K on Jan 24, 2017
I'm trying to figure out the size I need, I'm 5'5" with 32" waist and about 170lbs any ideas small or medium?
Sean W on Aug 25, 2014
Does the vest come with the white bionic back protector or the black one?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2011
BEST ANSWER: It does come with a white bionic back protector. If you plan to wear it under a jacket, which I recommend, the color shouldn't be a problem.
I was looking at getting this for ATV riding, and wearing it underneath the jersey. Would this be a good choice? Or/and what other products would you recommend? Thank you.
A shopper on Jun 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This vest is really good.

It was originally intended for racers that didn't want to move their armor from one suit to the next, where they apparently use multiple suits during a race.

But I'm not a racer. I wear a suit that doesn't have the back and torso protection this vest offers. So I wear it under my full body suit, after removing the back protector that came with the body suit. It works great.

I must tell you that I unfortunately had the opportunity to put it to a real world test. I ran into a very large male deer at 50 mph with this vest on. It totaled my motorcycle and banged me up pretty good. I landed on my back.

This vest probably prevented me from becoming hurt much worse that I was. My helmet also took a pretty good beating.

I replaced all of my riding gear and got a slightly bigger motorcycle.

I don't ride it without this vest on. I feel completely naked without it.

I don't work for AlpineStars or RevZilla. I ride in the mountains of Northern CA,
now on a Ducati Multistrada 1200. Great bike. All is well, partly because of this vest.

By all means, get one.
I was wondering which size to go with. I am 6'2 and 175 pounds. I usually wear a medium t-shirt. What size do you guys think i should go with?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am 6'3 and 160... I got the medium and it's snug but in a good way. I would probably say you should go with a large seeing as you are 15 pounds heavier than me, but everyone's build can be different. I'm thinking a large would be best for you.
How breathable is this vest? Will it make you sweat a lot on an 80 degree day with just a T-shirt underneath and nothing over the top?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This is an amazing product that offers great protection from front to back. The breathability is not a factor; the mesh allows tons of air. I have worn this in 90+ degree heat with no issues. Cleaning is very easy, the back protector can be unzipped from the vest in seconds. Please note this vest is meant to be worn underneath a leather jacket or suit, it would not be recommended to wear the vest by itself.
Cons: I did notice some stitching was coming loose when I got the vest and I was afraid it would deteriorate over time. I have had the vest for almost 2 years now and it has held up pretty well.
How do you wash this vest? Given that the pads are not removable, I don't know whether it can be safely soaked in soapy water. Gotta wash it good, tho, cuz it stinks! Thx.
A shopper on Apr 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: That is a good question. I took off the back protector and hand washed mine and let it hand dry.

I didn't go crazy with the water or soapy. Still fits the same
I just bought the tech arrow backpack. I believe it fits a medium bionic back protector but I figured if I'm wearing the back protector it would be better than having it in the backpack. I saw this vest I love the look i'm wondering if it would be as effective at doing it's job under the backpack or no to keep looking? the weather here in Texas can get up to three digits in the summer and with so many lights my leather jacket from a stars just gets too hot to wear on streets
Roque R on Mar 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have had this product for over 2 years and its has been amazing. For maximum protection wear this product under a leather jacket. I dont believe this product was meant to be worn by itself. This product breathes incredibly well, very light weight, comfortable to wear and pretty much molds to your body over time.

To answer your question:
1. The back pack idea would be a waste of money. On impact the protection would sift too much to be effective. Even the protector inserts in the jackets are too small to offer good overall back protection.
2. Yes, if you must, you can wear the vest by itself and it will provide great back protection. At the risk of sounding like a hypocrite, I have gone for a quick ride with just the vest on and its been complimented almost every were I went.
Does it limit how much you can curve your back? I'm looking into this for endurance horseback riding and while riding we curve our back in to keep looking up while staying centered in the saddle.
A shopper on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: With my experience with this vest I haven't run into any limitations bending forward like your picking something up. Now bending backwards like your gonna do a back flip could be and issue but as far as curving your back to stay more in a straight position to look forward no problem at all. I've done this comfortably on the bike. At first it feels a bit weird because of the design of the vest but you get used to it pretty quick, it's light, breeds air really good ( depending on your speed ???? ) and offers a lot of protection. Hopefully I've answered your question. Good luck
fit under tight track suit?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how tight of course. When I take the back protector out of my Dainese full leather suit, I can just fit in it with the vest on. My suit fits like a custom but isn't. If you have a "little play" in an off-the-rack suit, then it probably will.
if i want to make combine between this (Alpinestars Track Protection Vest) and (River Road Scout Jacket) to wear the vest under this jacket for more protection, so does they fit correctly together, because iam new biker and i have harley davidson street bob 2013 thats why i want to buy curiser classic jacket with more protection for me?
Mohamed M on Sep 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It fits nicely under a jacket with the back off. If the jacket you buy has armor in it also then it becomes too bulky in my opinion. This is a great vest to wear by itself. I usually wear it when it's warm over my jacket.
