Bought this because I like Forcefield products and wanted one for my Astars GP leather jacket. Have Forcefield in all my jackets and really like the way they mold to your shape. Air flow is fantastic.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bought these to wear with my Astars leathers for road trip to Deals Gap and to wear during some spirited riding on the Dragon and other twisties. Wear size 10.5-11 normally and 45 fits me perfectly. I have a B/C width and find Astars boots to fit me extremely well. The three Velcro arrangement worked well and did held during off the bike walking. Boots were comfortable and kept me dry during a ride through mild rainstorm lasting about 2 hours. We're not too warm in temperatures up to mid 80's. haven't ridden in hotter weather yet. I am an Astars convert as their cuts fit my 6' leaner build perfectly.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm 6' and 175lbs with slightly longer legs and slim frame with a 36" waist. The size 52 size fits perfectly. Quality construction, good air flow and mates up to my GP-R jacket. Armor is in the right place and stays where it should. Took me a couple tries with other brand to figure out I must have an "Italian" build. Will be buying Alpinestars exclusively from now on. If you are a little put off by the price keep in mind buying better quality costs less in the long run.

I wanted better protection (CE2) in a jacket insert and ordered the Forcefield Pro Type A Medium for an Astars GP-R jacket size 52. The Forcefield fits well width wise and is just a little longer than the pocket but I was able to still secure the Velcro at the bottom opening of the pocket to retain the pad securely. Being CE2 and a little larger than the available Astars CE1 insert, I am more confident in the level of protection. Nice and comfy and molds to your shape very easily.
I also ordered the Astars Track Pants to go with the Jacket. If I decide to run the combo on the track, I can swap out the Forcefield back pad for the snap in Bionic Race which is longer than the Forcefield and has the interlocking panel "turtle shell" back.

Wearing with Trigger suit for track days. Large size seems perfect and gives full coverage down to tailbone without crowding. Very comfortable and good air flow. Took a couple wearings to break in suit with protector but now feels like a second skin with protector in place. It seems to articulate just fine. A little awkward to put on. I snap it into the suit after I put on the bottom half and then pull the waist band around front before putting in arms and pulling up top half of suit. Seems to work well and fairly quickly on and off.

Replaced the foam chest pads in my new Astars Trigger suit. Fit perfectly and stay in place. Comfortable with decent air flow. Extra protection appears to be worth the investment. Hopefully I won't have to test them.

I ordered a 45 EUR size. Typically wear a 10.5 or 11 and these fit perfect. I have a narrower B width foot and this boot couldn't fit any better. Great style and quality. Looks like it offers moderate protection for the price. Still breaking them in but looks like it will be Astars for me for all my gear from now on.

Great entry level suit. Nicely made and size 52 fits my 6' 175 lb frame perfectly. I am on the thinner side with 41" chest and 36" waist and the fit is nice and snug with Bionic Race back protector and Astars chest protectors. Preshape is more aggressive as you would expect. I did this on iPad and could not move the slider to reflect this. Arms can accommodate more muscular build. Calves were Just right and do not ride up. If you have larger calves, it will take some extra breaking in since this suit does not have extra expansion zippers like some other suits or pants. After two 2 hour rides to break it in it is very comfortable for me. Arms and legs seemed a little short at first but with gloves and boots, are perfect. Any longer on the arms would get in the way of the wrist strap closure area of the gloves. Looking forward to my first track day!

I am 6' 175 lbs. Thin with 41" chest and 36" waist and the 52 fit me perfectly. I have a square torso as opposed to a more tapered build and find tha Alpinestars cut fits me the best. I am selling my Joe Rocket gear and switching to all Astars from now on. Just ordered the matching black/white track Pants in a size 52. I'll review those soon.

I have installed on a Shoei RF1100 and it works flawlessly. Sync'd with iPhone and Garmin 660. Very easy to use because ot the large glove friendly knob and easy functionality. Was a little tricky to pair initially but once paired it syncs up every time I turn everything on.
