Does anybody have either the plain black Airflow or the Stunt-Airflow jacket by Alpinestars?
I like most A-stars stuff and am thinking about getting a hot weather jacket, what do you guys think about the Airflows?

Thanks

I recently purchased the Venom Air-Flow jacket, and I love it!

It's confortable and great to move around in...(Ie. you can walk around the house and still look cool!) Only thing I hate about them is, when it's brand new, the inside smells like foot odor! YUCK!

Just ordered a Hein Gericke Timbuktu Air Mesh Jacket. It should arrive in a week or two. Only experience I have is with Alpinestars Air-Flo Riding Pants & like them in the hot weather.

The Timbuktu is more to my style of jacket being long on the body & same with my other jackets. It probably will not be to the liking of many still Hein Gericke seem to have some pretty good riding gear.

Have a lot to learn about these mesh jackets such as change in altitudes & so temperatures, for I live & ride in the mtn area, & what happens if I run into a surprise bit of rain or a downpour of rain. For my 57+ yrs of riding have never included such mesh riding gear.

I got the SMX Airflo jacket earlier this spring in a group buy from Cal-Sportbike. I can't say enough good things about it. It felt broke in the first time I put it on, unlike unperf'd jackets that take a while to break in. I haven't noticed any smell from my jacket; but do get the smell from my A-stars gloves. Not sure what's with that.

I had the Stunt perforated jacket, and actually just sold it yesterday....

I loved it, if I had to get another street jacket, that would probably be it.

This bit about "smell" has me wondering for my mesh trousers by Alpinestars should be showing the same as the other jackets & pants I have with some dating back to the 60s. Yes I have a good smellerso I would be able to smell something out of normal. Possibly it is because I keep them hung up properly & not not throwen into some corner of the room --- only guessing on the latter.

Yes some of my jackets date back to early 60s so that is not a joke & in reality none of my clothing smells. Use to pick up the smell of spent tobacco from others that smoked & so hung them outside for a day or two & in some cases they could be washed by hand or machine.
