Supercool, but not well fitted for tall people.

Good things first: I love the soft leather and the shape. I feel like a superstar wearing them!
BUT: These pants are not made for tall people. The knee protectors slide up and if I pull them down, the crotch is to low (they sort of crawl inwards too, so it doen't really feel like they protect the outside of the knee completely#
Also, when zipped together with the jacket it almost feels as if the jacket is too short as well. I'm 5'8 got a size 40 in pants and jacket. I'm normally a size 4 #38 in european sizes) The pants are very tight, and I cannot fit anything underneath, but I'm confident they will stretch a little bit.
They were difficult to pull up over the hips and I was almost afraid of breaking something. But once I got them on and zipped they were ok - after walking around in them for half an hour they had stretched out somewhat. So don't be afraid of a tight fit when you first try them on - if you can zip them without suffucating they are probably the right size.
I should probably have ordered a size 42 for the suit to fit lenghtwise, but then it would be a bit too saggy for my taste. I wish Alpinestars would make a tall size as well, cause if you're >5,8 and buy a size 40 or smaller it's probably too short.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was expecting a soft jacket that would feel more like a store bought than a motorcycle jacket, and that the leather would seem flimsy.
Not at all. The leather feels as strong as my leather REV'IT jacket, but somewhat softer. It wasn't at all as thin as I feared. The stretch panels just makes it sit very snugly on the body.
I admit - it does feel quite tight when brand new! I haven't worn it on the bike yet - but I have been told it breaks in a bit, so I think I got the right size. I am 5'9 and 136 lbs. 34C bra size, bust: 34", waist: 27,6" hip: 38"
I'm getting the pants too, but alas, I think my butt is too big for a size 40 :-#
If you're very #like > 5'10# tall the sleeves on a size 40 might be a bit short. They are just long enough for me.
I really recommend wearing it with a back protector! I'm getting the bio armour insert, since my normal fat level2 protector wouldn't fit underneath. With a back protector I'm pretty sure it is just as protective as most other jackets.
Overall, it seems more sturdy than first feared. From the reviews around the internet you get the impression that it's spiderweb thin and not very protective. I do not agree.
I wouldn't use it on the track though.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got these pants a 4 years ago, and I have been very satisfied.
The fit is great because of the stretch panels and their placement. They do stretch out a bit after breaking in.
They are comfortable when riding, they do their job perfectly. For walking upright they are a bit bunchy, and it does look as if you are wearing a diaper underneath...but then again - mine are a size too big.
The lining is not removable, but I havent really been bothered about this - not even after a sweaty day on the race track. Just hang them up to dry afterwards. They are not even smelly....
There is both a 360 degress zipper at the waist, and a shorter connection zipper at the back as well.
I crashed once in these and had a nice long slide on the track - the leather just got slighty lighter and no real damage apart from the "t" and the "!" was scraped off the side.
I bet these could last 10 more years!
Yes, I recommend this product.
