Comments about Alpinestars Messenger Waterproof Motorcycle Jacket 2011:
Very nice jacket, keeps me warm on those chilly mornings but still good in the PM when it's warmer.BEWARE of the FIT! I am 6'2" and 210 lbs. and usually wear an XL shirt or jacket. But I could not even get my shoulders in the Alpinestars XL jacket. I ended up buying the 3XL size for correct fit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

daily commuter wear

nice jacket that has worked for me every day while commuting in So Cal the last few months.
from Philadelphia, PA
So I use this primarily for colder weather riding (commuting 1 hour each way to work). With the lining, It's very comfortable down to mid 30's with just a sweater (midweight). Need to wear a little more if a little colder. The jacket is way too warm and doesn't breathe for anything above 60, unless you'll going for more than 2 hours on it. I've worn it in the rain and somehow I only get wet at the stomach where the jacket bends... The hook and loop seems to lose its stickiness rather quickly, so I have to press hard to get them to latch together. It would've been nice if the zipper could be unzipped from the bottom once zipped. Also, the neck could be a little tight if you wear anything under it, like a gaitor or high collar on a sweater. Runs true to size.
