Alpinestars Sniper Air Flo Jacket Review

When the Summer temperatures start getting close to the triple digits and the tarmac starts to melt you're going to want to keep your leather motorcycle jacket in the closet and the Alpinestars Sniper Air Flo Jacket is going to want to come out to play. The Sniper Air Flo Jacket is Alpinestars' urban sport jacket designed to be a warm weather riding jacket and flow a ton of air through the torso and sleeves. The Sniper is also very stylish and a great bang for the buck at less than 200 dollars.

Check out our Alpinestars Sniper Air Flo Jacket Review:

This jacket's main function is to flow plenty of air to the rider. The mesh panels running up and down the sleeves, chest and back are very light weight and comfortable. This mesh paneling is designed to push air in and out of the jacket keeping the rider feeling comfortable and fresh. There's a ton of places air can enter and exit this jacket through the mass amounts of mesh. The mesh material is abrasion and tear resistant with impact stitching holding the jacket together, so it won't fall apart as soon as it hits the asphalt.

The styling of this jacket is very aggressive and is for the
sport oriented riding position. The Sniper has a more slim fit with a precurve in the arms to make reaching the controls a little easier and more natural. The Alpinestars logos on the back, sleeves, chest, and shoulders really are well done and help give the sniper that aggressive edge in the styling department. Waist cinches give the Sniper a bit of adjustment. The Urban Camo scheme of the mesh material is also very snappy on this jacket and gives it an urban vibe.

What you're getting with the Sniper Air Flo Jacket is a great combination of mesh and 600D polyester. The textile
polyester is strategically placed in the high impact areas and areas most prone to damage during an impact and slide.
This includes the shoulders, elbows, back, and chest. These areas almost always catch damage during a wreck. CE armor is placed in the shoulders and elbows to provide solid impact protection during the event of a spill. The back has a PE foam piece which can be removed and replaced with an Alpinestars Bio Armor Back Protector or an Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector Insert. There are also pockets for the Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pads. Protection is something that Alpinestars never skimps out on with their jackets and the Sniper is no exception.

I can very easily see this being a great jacket for anybody who rides a supermoto or a streetfighter.
The Sniper provides a great deal of value for a jacket under 200 bucks and will be great for the mid-summer heat or somebody living in the south with a longer warm season. The two color schemes are a Black and Camo, and White and Camo. Sizing goes from SM to 4XL and it is also available as the Alpinestars Women's Stella Sniper Jacket.
