Product Review: Alpinestars Oscar Ray Canvas Jacket (£199.99)

What’s good about the Alpinestars Oscar Ray Canvas Jacket?

This waxed canvas cotton jacket is part of Alpinestars’ new Oscar range of trendy vintage-style riding gear and I’ve been wearing it for the past five months, including a 3500-mile trip to Ibiza on my Yamaha R1. It’s lightweight, but sturdily-made and will withstand a moderate shower. The fit, construction and attention to detail, like the triple-stitched seams and old-school spiral Astars logos on the zips and press-studs is lovely. It comes with CE-certified shoulder and elbow armour, which is easily removed when you want to wear it as a casual jacket.

And what’s not?

It’s a perfect jacket for the summer season, but it’s not warm enough on its own for very cold days.
