Alpinestars T-GP Plus Air Jacket Review

One of our top summer sport jackets is the Alpinestars T-GP Plus Air Jacket. A couple years in the running now, the T-GP Plus delivers what riders expect from Alpinestars at this point: performance, protection, comfort and sport style all bundled into an affordable package that utilizes premium materials. While this jacket is primarily built for hot weather sport and city riding, you can really stretch this jacket into a decent portion of Spring and Fall. If you're a sport rider who generally can be found in the 3/4 or tuck position, the T-GP Plus Air Jacket can be your go-to for nearly three seasons.

Check out our Alpinestars T-GP Plus Air Jacket Review:



The shell of the T-GP Plus Air is constructed of 600D PU-coated (for water/abrasion resistance) polyester in all impact areas (shoulders, elbows, upper chest, upper back) with huge high-airflow polyester mesh inserts at the chest and the back. CE rated protectors are removable and can be found in the shoulders and elbows, with PE padding in the chest and back, each area can be upgraded. The Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pads and Alpinestars RC Back Protector provide significantly higher protection than the standard foam padding. To stretch this into Spring and Fall, Alpinestars has included a removable windproof breathable liner jacket that will help seal out some of the wind of the cooler months.

The T-GP Plus Air Jacket features an aggressive sport fit and the sleeves have a pre-curve to them for comfort in the 3/4 and tuck positions. There are adjustable velcro panels at the waist and wrist, along with a 360ยบ waist zipper to connect this to any textile or leather pants in the AStars lineup. As always, YKK zippers (the best in the world) are used throughout the jacket for long life. The attention to detail is there as well, with stylish TPR logos on the lower back and upper arms and a die-cut leather logo across the front of the chest.

Another solid hot weather choice in the AStars lineup, the T-GP Plus Air has kept many a rider cool and comfortable and will continue to do so. To check out comparable options, visit our Mesh Motorcycle Jackets section.
