The Alpinestars Quasar Textile Jacket is a lightweight and ventilated motorcycle jacket. It allows the rider to be cool and stay protected on warm days. This motorcycle jacket allows the rider to make adjustments to get a proper fit and is also cut with rider comfort in mind.
The Quasar Textile Jacket is constructed of six hundred denier polyester.
It’s available in 3 color ways including this all black and in sizes S-4XL. The
fit is just a little bit on the European side, but the size chart is accurate so
make sure you use is to establish your fitment. The arms have a slight bend to
them giving them a slight sport fit, but it’s nowhere near as aggressive as say
a T-Jaws air jacket, so this jacket will work well on all types of bikes. The
Quasar is more than just a mesh jacket. See, making a material that allows air
to pass through it is easy. What
done is strategically place these mesh panels to manipulate the flow of air
through the garment to maximize the cooling effect. They also have used a water
repellent material for the shell so that not if but when the material gets
rained on, the water isn’t absorbed and the garment stays lightweight and dries
On the protective side, the high wear areas are constructed using a high tensile
strength, abrasion resistant material, and the shoulders and elbows feature CE
approved armor. There is also removable protective padding in the chest and in
the back, and there are subtle yet effective
high-viz accents throughout the jacket, including these panels and this
A-Stars logo. There is also a full circumference zipper to connect your riding
Adjustability is very important on a mesh jacket to control buffeting. The
Quasar has hook and loop adjusters at the waist to perfect the fit and manage
airflow, and there are take-ups on sleeves. The cuffs are also adjustable, and
there are accordion-style stretch panels in the elbows to promote flexibility.
Additional features include this huge mesh panel and the Alpinestars monogram
across the shoulders on the back. The collar is soft and comfortable, and the
main zipper closure is YKK.
Storage comes in the form of two zippered hand warmer pockets on the front.
Inside the Quasar, you’ll find a vertical zipper pocket and 3 hook and loop
