Ladies Alpinestars Bionic 2 jacket input

Just wondering if anyone has tried it... It's too hot for leather, and my textile jacket is too big and ill fitting, so I was going to try a mesh this time since the textile was barely cooler than the leather.

I know the risks... it's just too hot, and I need to get to school on time. The everyday highway closures around Houston are killing me.

I'm wondering specifically how the Stella fitment was, because reviews online are saying it runs one size small.

I dont have the specific jacket ur asking about but I do have 2 astar jackets. It does run a little small but not excessive. What I dont like is the length of the jacket n the shape. I wish it was below the hips a bit and not so square/boxy.

hmmm it's really boxy?? I wouldn't expect that from them. The reviews are saying that this specific "jacket" runs a full size small, too.

I might just have to try it.... if it doesn't fit now it will fit in a few months at least.... of course that's when it cools back down

I have a mens size M, and I can tell you that I probably wouldn't be able to zip up a small. These jackets are designed to be worn under some kind of slide protection,so i guess thats why they run small. I would assume the same logic would apply for the ladies.

I have a Fieldsheer mesh jacket and I LOVE it. It lets all the air in, protects from the sun, and protects from injury during a crash. My hostage and my cousin were in the same jackets when they went down. Both jackets held up and no rash/injuries were received. Wayne still wears his.

You don't have to sacrifice safety for mesh.

I don't know much of anything about the jacket you're asking about - just letting you know that mesh jackets don't have to be unsafe.
