Alpinestars Matrix Kevlar Jacket Review

The brand new Alpinestars Matrix Kevlar Jacket continue the trend of Alpinestars City Collection division, which produces protective motorcycle gear that is fashionable and subtle to the untrained eye. The Matrix Kevlar is a muted exterior shell with CE rated protection internally in impact areas; the armor can actually be completely removed if you're just wearing this jacket walking around town with no fear that people are going to punch you in the shoulders or elbows for no reason. Overall, this jacket will be solid on or off the bike.

Check out our Alpinestars Matrix Kevlar Jacket Review:



The Matrix Kevlar's shell is a double PU coated cotton-based fabric: the cotton gives it an extremely supple feel while the PU coating provides resistance to foul weather and an added level of durability. At the shoulders and elbows, Alpinestars' proprietary CE rated Bioarmor provides the protection via lightweight and comfortable armor pieces. Added abrasion resistance comes via the internal addition of Kevlar reinforcements stitched in to the inner shoulders and elbows. AStars uses a soft knitted cotton at the collar and cuffs for comfort and subtle logo branding to maintain this jacket's extremely mellow vibe. YKK zippers throughout, with three external pockets and one internal pocket.

This jacket will match up great with a pair of jeans and is a great choice for city riding in our opinion. To see more choices, visit our Alpinestars Jackets and Textile Motorcycle Jackets sections.
