The DIRT summer glove offers the perfect balance between protection and ventilation. Lightweight mesh and perforated leather parts allow air to flow freely along the hands, keeping you cool. The level of safety is exceptional for a mesh glove, thanks to high-quality leather, dual-comp palm slider, Albany cowhide hard-shell knuckle, and PU-injected finger knuckles. The DIRT is comfort and safety rolled into one glove.

Great glove. Cool and very protective. I use it for on and off road dual sport sort of use. Hands don't get hot and I feel like I have a lot more protection than just some light dirt bike glove. The fingers could stand to be slightly longer for me, but if you aren't someone with long digits like myself it will probably fit fine. And the snugness from that seems to have sort of stretched out by now anyway.
Alpinestars Women's Bionic Chest Pad The Bionic Chest Pad impact and vibration protection upgrade accessory for use in Alpinestars jackets and suits Polymer chest plate backed with Bio-Foam to provide extra protection to the chest from impact and vibration Fits into Alpinestars 1pc/2pc suits, most leather and textile jackets Vented to maintain airflow cooling
I purchased an Alpinestars Koln Jacket before this past winter (great jacket for winter/fall/spring by the way) and also got these to go with it. I have to say that I can never really notice them in and occasionally check to make sure they have not fallen out or something. *bangs chest with fist*... 'yup'
I really feel like more jackets ought to incorporate armor in the chest. I really can't see myself getting another jacket without chest protection or the ability to add it (unless I get a separate chest protector). Once you have these in your Alpinestars jacket you will feel naked in jackets without it and wondering "how did I go without this?".
Another great feature here is that these transplant to all the other Alpinestars jackets without worry about fit.
If you have an Alpinestars jacket, you should get these.

Great Helmet, fogs up though

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
I really love this helmet, don't get me wrong. It looks great in the frost black, fits well, tough as nails, just wish it flowed a bit more air and did not fog up quite as easily. I run around with the visor cracked open on it a lot.

I am constantly afraid of leaving my bike unattended in parking lots and the like. But this alarm and lock really puts my mind at ease. It is loud, and makes stealing the bike somewhat impossible. It is easy to put on and take off, although I fumbled with it at first, perhaps it was only me who had a difficult time getting it to behave and apply properly at first but none the less, I took off a point for ease of install simply because of that learning curve. I would recommend this product to anyone and intend on getting one for my girlfriend in the near future.
