Alpinstars Motorcycle Jacket

The Alpinestars GP Pro Leather Jacket was released in Fall of 2010 and has been quickly gaining popularity among riders. Developed for the devoted sportsbike rider, Alpinestars has designed a jacket that offers safety, comfort and style.

Constructed of premium full grain leather, the GP Pro Jacket offers optimal abrasion resistance and durability. A dual density back hump promotes airflow within the jacket to improve ventilation.

As always, Alpinestars adheres to the utmost levels of safety and protection by including external sliders on the shoulders and elbows to provide excellent impact protection.

Additional features of the jacket include stretch panels across the back to assist body movement on the bike and inner mesh lining panels to provide for a snug fit.
