One of the hottest new jackets of 2012 is the Alpinestars TGPR Air Jacket. This jacket is a perfect summer riding jacket that can serve you well in the spring and fall, too. It’s lightweight, provides plenty of airflow, and looks great! The shell of the jacket is made of mesh with 600 denier over the impact areas, and plenty of reflective material for nighttime visibility. There are waist adjustment straps to provide a custom fit, and micro Velcro wrist straps that can accommodate either short cuff or gauntlet gloves.
The TGPR jacket has PE foam padding in the chest with an optional Bionic Chest Armor upgrade, definitely a unique feature for a mesh jacket. The jacket also comes with Bionic Armor on the shoulders and elbows. The T-GP-R includes a removable, fully-sleeved, water resistant liner that will keep you dry in wet weather. For storage, there are two internal cargo pockets, as well as a stash pocket. As an added feature, at the bottom of the jacket is a zipper connection that can link to any pair of Alpinestars’ pants. The Alpinestars TGPR Jacket is definitely the “must have” riding jacket of the summer!
