Alpinestars Octane Leather Jacket

Here's a review of Alpinestars Octane Leather Jacket I thought I'd share with you guys.

The best part about the Octane is the quality. The stitching and the leather material is amazing! The CE armor is solid and is even stitched into the leather on the elbows. The back protector can be swapped out and upgraded to CE back protector.

Accordion stretch panels under the arms allow you to reach out with your arms without pulling on the rest of the jacket.

The price is a bit steep and for the amount of (or lack of) features the jacket offers - I'm entirely impressed. If top notch quality is your primary concern then I'd recommend checking it out - if your looking for more features then something else may be a better fit.

Link doesn't work, probably because the URL got cut up. Does it come with full circumference zipper? YKK or the small zipper?

Thanks Kanwisch, - I edited the link to go to the main page - you can find the review there.

Yes, it does come with a waist connection zipper that lets you attach it your pants.
