Alpinestars Durban Goretex jacket
Just received my jacket today and went out for a 3hr ride. I have to say that so far this jacket is outstanding! The build quality is obvious straight away and there are more than enough waterproof pockets both internal and external to keep anybody happy. You can tell by the texture of the fabric that it is going to stand up to some serious scraps if it needs to. All the armour is comfortable and seems to quickly conform to my shape and the full length sleeve vents and chest vents allow plenty of air flow through the jacket. It's 30c here today and the ride was very comfortable. The inner goretex liner zips out and can be worn on its own over a shirt or under a pullover if need be for warmth at night when you are away and don't want to wear the jacket to the pub
I'm pretty impressed at this point.Cost in Australia was $799.00 but I bought it on the net from a shop in Italy for $550 Aussie delivered via FedEx! How could I say no?
