Built using the best, full grain bovine leather that Alpinestars can find, the Missile Ignition Leather Jacket provides world-class impact protection with high levels of abrasion resistance. It looks the business, too!

Said leather is 1.3mm thick and expertly sewn into place using double and triple-seam construction as needed for maximum durability and crash resistance. Between those segments of perforated, but protective leather, large leather accordion stretch panels are employed to avoid that straight-jacket feeling. Where impact and abrasion aren’t of concern on the inner sleeves, Alpinestars-formulated High Resistant Stretch Fiber (HRSF) panels are used to further improve riding and off-the-bike comfort. Sleeves are pre-curved for reduced riding fatigue and comfort on the bike.

Armor is well placed in the arms and shoulders with GP-R CE-certified protectors. You can further upgrade the jacket with Nucleon padding in the chest and back compartments as well. And no premium riding jacket would be complete without a back hump. This one, of course, is sculpted for better airflow and performance at high speed.

This fit any different than the one piece?

You sell a matching pant that with full circumference zip?

Fit is similar to the once piece. We try to get more precise on the jacket fitment since we aren't making any compromises for the legs.

Just finished my first ride in the MD humid heat, and this jacket kept me comfortable! The cut around the torso is probably the best I've ever ridden in. The arms are interesting in the way they're curved - they encourage you to keep at least some bend in the arm, which is actually ultimately a good thing. If you lock the elbows, the armor is a little uncomfortable. Again, this is actually good since your arms should be more relaxed.

Much thanks to Riders Discount. They cannot be beaten.
