Alpinestars Verona Air Jacket Review

The Alpinestars Verona WP Jacket came out last year as part of their sleek City Collection and has been an immensely popular addition to the AStars roundup. Based on this, Alpinestars decided to put out a second version, the Alpinestars Verona Air Jacket, loaded with perf and designed as a warm to hot weather riding option for the city rider and commuter. You won't look like a storm trooper when you hop off the bike, but you'll be fully protected, ventilated, and comfortable when ripping the bike around town.

Alpinestars seems to be quite dedicated in recent years to offering riders protective gear that is simple, subtle, and stylish. The Verona Air continues the push in this direction for the City Collection and honestly, if you didn't know any better, you'd have no clue that this is a fully protective motorcycle jacket. Removable CE rated Bioarmor protects in the shoulders and elbows, with a slim profile that eliminates the bulk of some other types of armor. The chest and back both have pockets to accommodate more protective armor pieces. The Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pads and the CE rated Alpinestars RC Back Protector are both available as optional upgrades for the Alpinestars Verona Air Jacket.

What really impresses about this jacket and gives it a unique vibe is the shell construction. A durable double PU coated 450D polyester shell combines with abrasion resistant mesh panel for style, airflow, and protection. The 450D can be found in all impact areas while the mesh is at the bottom three quarters of the torso on front and back, with large panels at the inner arms as well. You're getting the best of both worlds with the Verona Air: superior ventilation properties for hot weather riding with all the necessary protective features and comfort, including a slightly pre-curved ergonomic arm construction. Lastly, the micro velcro prevents any snags and the collar and cuffs are both comfort-lined.

Available in a blacked out version and a black-desert version, the Alpinestars Verona Air Jacket gives city riders, commuters, and scooter riders a subtle choice for warm and hot weather riding. Sporty but not overwhelming in style, the Verona Air has a bright future. To see similar choices, visit our Summer Motorcycle Gear and Textile Motorcycle Jackets sections at RevZilla.com.
