Its waist length and fully waterproof and breathable via its Dry-Star membrane. It comes in 3 colors (Black, Grey and Desert) and has full scale CE rated Alpinestars Bio-Armor. It has a trendy city look and feel with a removable thermal liner with collar for added 3 season warmth.
Basically if you were keeping score this Alpinestars Verona Jacket is as just as functional as it is stylish, both on and off the bike. I have not ridden in it yet, but it fit like a glove and the neoprene lined cuffs and collar along with Astars locking Zipper system were a nice finishing touch.
The big brother & 3/4 length version of this jacket is the Alpinestars Messenger Jacket which we previously talked about.
Personally I am a fan of the Verona over the Messenger - but I do live in Philly and ride a naked Ducati. Ey, how you doin'?
ps. I know this writeup is a bit cheeky, but I was bored last night when I wrote it.
