Alpinestar Jacket good or bad?

I just bought a Alpinestar jacket Air-Flo Textile, any input or comments on this jacket? Or should I have bought the T-Stunt Textile jacket?

As a whole I really like alpinestar products. I've just never been much on the textile.

i don't think there is a big different between the air flow and the t-stunt.

I own the t-stunt and love it though.

alpinestar textiles are good, both models are pretty much the same, tough, and mostly waterproof if you have the line on. I crashtested mine at lowspeed and it held up with no damage, and I've water tested mine (no liner) in really bad rain on the highway and got a bit wet but not soaked. ohhh yeah you might want to scotchguard the white parts before the dirtwater hits em.
