Jacket review: Alpinestars Stella RK5

Best thing about it: It’s good to find a jacket that’s not just a scaled down version of the blokes but has been tailored to fit the female form.

I’ve worn this in all weathers most recently I've been riding in sub-zero temperatures, through sleet and rain, so the removable thermal lining has stayed firmly in place. This combined with the Gore-tex membrane has kept me warm and dry.

Worst thing about it: It’s really easy to get on and off as the sleeves have zips from the cuff to the elbow the only problem is these have a tendency to work themselves undone when wearing bulky winter gloves underneath.

There’s also a distinct lack of pockets, the two at the breast are too small and badly placed.
