Today’s blog is about the Jaws leather jacket from Alpinestars. It is not the best period to get a brand new leather gear, but with this particular jacket, you might change your mind.
The Alpinestars Jaws leather jacket
This is a sport riding jacket. The 1.3 mm leather construction is thick to give you the best protection but light enough to improve your comfort while wearing it. It has plenty of stretch panels on back, chest, waist and arms for a maximum flexibility.
The CE Certified Bio-armour shoulder and elbows protectors are removable. There are foam paddings at chest and back that you can remove and replace by CE Certified protections if you want to upgrade your gear (it is actually highly recommended).
This jacket has plenty of features that make it very comfortable. The main thing is, you get a removable thermal vest that will keep you warm if you are riding on coldest days and are a leather fan. The lining is meshed in order to improve the breathability.
The collar itself deserves a little bit of attention: it is highly comfortable as it is round-edged and meshed to avoid irritation and improve the breathability, especially at the back of your neck.Speaking of breathability, the jacket has two zippered Dynamic Flow Controls (DFC) air in-takes that will allow you to get efficient ventilation, ideal for summer time.
There are waist and cuff adjustments, so that the jacket will fit everybody. A connection zip situated in the inside of the jacket will be used to connect the jacket and the trousers together. Finally, rear reflective sections have been placed in strategic areas in order to improve the night time visibility.
This brand new jacket is available at Honda of Bournemouth or online for £370 in black, white and red. It will shortly be available in plain black as well.
