Not a bad Jacket
Jacket feels great and worked well for track use. After a few months I noticed the color(white,red,black) started to wear off around the zipper and pockets. They need to do a better job with their leather dye process. Not as durable as they claim.

Great Jacket!
My GP Plus R is a great durable, good fitting Jacket that seems to be well made. I do have only two complaints. 1) I don't like the Bio-Armor that comes with it, too thin, too hard. I replaced it with ICON Black Field Armor, much more comfortable, and better protection. 2) There are 3 snaps inside to snap in back armor, or you can use the pocket for back armor, which I did. But when I ware the jacket, the back armor pushes the 3 snaps into your back (spine), making uncomfortable when riding. I drilled out the rivets in the snaps and removed them, now it a very comfortable snug jacket, I really enjoy wearing it.

Great first jacket!
I was shopping for my first leather motorcycle jacket for commuting and I was looking at this one and the Dainese Zen Evo. I stopped in to my local Cycle Gear in SF and tried them both on. They didn't have the Dainese in my size in all black so I pulled the trigger and bought this jacket. The GP Plus R felt tight when I first put it on, but the sales guy informed me that it was normal for Alpine stars, particularly with leather. He told me it would break in after a while and de was right! The 1st week of commuting was a bit snug, but it has broken in nicely. It feels like a glove now. For reference I am 5'10" 165lbs and I bought a sie 50(euro). With that said, fitment is very true.

Other things I like include the quality of the leather. It feels very high quality and is nice and supple. Locking zippers, they stay in place great. Velcro adjusting straps let you adjust the sleeve and waist perfectly. The armor inside felt weird at first, but i got used to it in about a week. the perforations flow a tremendous amount of air, something that I did not like at first because I wanted a jacket with a liner that would keep me warmer on cold mornings. But, with summer creeping up i figured this would be a great summer jacket.

The styling is a bit flashier than what i wanted, but it fits and feels so good I was willing to overlook it. Overall I am very happy with this jacket and would recommend it to anyone, although I got mine on closeout so if you can find one get it!
