Motostrano,

What can you tell us about the Alpinestars 365 Leather Jacket and Pants? I live in the north east and am looking for a fall/winter/spring sport touring suit. Other options I am considering are the Rukka Armas, BMW Streetguard, BMW Atlantis so any comparisons you can make woud be appreciated.


Specific questions I have are:
  1. Does the 365 Jacket come with elbow, shoulder, back and chest armour?
  2. What is the zipper system on the jacket?
  3. Does the jacket have a full waist zip to attatch to the pants?
  4. What kind of thermal liner does the jacket come with?
  5. How does the suit perform in cold weather?
  6. Given the other suits I am looking at - would you suggest another alpinestars model or is the 365 Alpinestars most protective, warmest, driest suit?

hello tundra61

well, the first and last point about the 365 jacket and pants is that they have in fact been discontinued. it was out of the price point of most mortals and introduced as the recession slammed the shore of the motorcycle industry and swept away half of the motorcycle shops in the country.

you'll see it on web pages here and there, but i don't think any one has any of it around anywhere.

we managed to sell just a few of units and didn't get too familiar with them.

got the scoop today on some forthcoming items from our favorite maker of sport motorcycle gear, Alpinestars, or as alpeeene-stars, as they say in italy.

the main feature- the alpinestars tech 8 is being re-done and re-released as an all new boot. much lighter in weight and much less concrete feel to them, the boot is more flexible than previous eights and the sole is extra grippy. per astars, the sole of the tech 8 boot is taken from the rubber compound of Pirelli's rally racing tires. cool. this brings this boot more in the range of dual-sport riders than before.

We have marked down a good array of 2011, 2010 and 2009 items from Alpinestars just today.

In the mark-down list you'll see a few good touring / adv jackets in there like the SPACE and the SCOUT

http://www.motostrano.com/alscdrja.html men's version

http://www.motostrano.com/alstscdrja.html women's version

http://www.motostrano.com/spacejacket.html

Some good deals and right now there's some good sizes and colors still available so it's a good time to bite, before summer starts to fade away

complete close-out list here http://www.motostrano.com/closeouts.html

boots

I don't see the Vendramini boots on your site?

Do you know if the fit is close to the Scout boots that I own?

What is your return policy regarding fit?

Thanks!

Do you know if this version will be made in Italy?

I have a set of 1st generation Tech8 boots. Just had them re-soled by Alpinestars. I bought and returned a new set as IMO they were crap compared to the original Italian made boots. I'd like a new set but only if they have the quality of the originals. I like the Sidi but they don't fit my wide feet.

Hi Mark-

The new Tech 8, which they're actually calling the "Alpinestars Tech 8 Light" is being made in Croatia, Italy and
Romania.

One of the main goals Astars has with the new boot is, as you may guess by the name, to make it
as light as possible. In fact, they say it's the lightest weight MX boot on the market in the category.
It's half a lb lighter than the previous and it's also perforated. Astars also claims that its sole has been
tested against Gaerne and SIDI to be the most durable.

Numerous other changes were done to the buckles. Also the inner bootie has been changed out to
be more like an ankle brace, with no toe cover, meaning the boot will fit even better for a wide foot.
right side of boot kickstart protector.

The replaceable kickstart pad is cool too. it's here http://www.motostrano.com/tech8light.html
