Hi all,

A few of the guys and I decided to try out Alpinestar's Octane leather jacket. I've always respected the quality that comes out of Alpinestars so I was eager to try it out.

Overall the Octane is a well made leather jacket. The quality of the stitching and the leather is top notch! The CE armor is solid and is even stitched into the leather on the elbows. The back protector can be swapped out and upgraded to CE back protector.

Asides from the excellent quality of the material - I have to admit that myself and the other guys were not really impressed by any of the other features. It's not that there is anything particularly wrong with the jacket - but there is not too much asides from the armor and leather quality that really make this jacket stand out - especially considering the medium/high end price tag.
