Comments about Alpinestars Viper Air Textile Motorcycle Jacket:
Sorry to say, the jacket didn't come with any instructions and even the terrific folks at Bike Bandit's customer one stop resolution department didn't seem to have a clue about where the access was located to replace the comfort chest pads with the CE Bio-Armor. I kept nosin' around and finally found the zipper opening UNDER the pant attachment zipper flap! It's the same on the T-Jaws jacket I also purchased. Hope you find this info helpful. Like my wife says, I'm a "Badger" when it comes to problem solving...RIDE SAFE!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Chest Pads CAN'T BE REPLACE w/Bio-Armor
Some of the wording in the description is misleading: "Chest and back pad compartments with PE comfort padding (Alpinestars CE Bio-Armor and back protector available as accessory upgrade)." The chest pad compartments DO NOT allow for replacement with AS Bio-Armor Chest Pads. The AS web site is very clear about this. Except for the BikeBandit info SNAFU, I'm very happy with the Jacket.
Great jacket for the price
By Keenan S

very affordable for an Astars jacket and great for summer riding. the XL fits perfect and I am 6'1" and 200 lbs. great ventilation and I like that the vets zip from either end, cool feature. Overall its great looking and rides comfortable.

Really good price for a top-of-the-line Astars jacket. This is my stylin' jacket, perfect for when it gets hot but I still want a high level of protection. You can remove the liner to adjust for different temperatures, which is amazing for those days where it's freezing in the morning and burning hot in the afternoon.
