Alpinestars is filling a void in the multi-season commuting and long-distance touring market with the brand new Alpinestars Cape Town Jacket. AStars, ubiquitous as one of the premier racing gear manufacturers in the industry, has been charging into the technical touring market for the last couple of years, and the Alpinestars Cape Town Drystar is further proof of it. They listened to their riding community and as a result, developed one of the very few mesh-based 3/4 length jackets with a removable waterproof breathable membrane. This spells a jacket that will perform in the hottest riding scenarios but is also versatile enough to get through wet and nasty conditions as well. Consider this your new three and a half season all-weather long-distance jacket. Oh, it's also available in a hi-viz colorway. Can you say homerun?
