Top off your shred protection.
With protection for your legs, arms, and head, you have most of your body taken care of already, and if shielding those parts is important, why wouldn't you offer your spine, shoulders, and guts the same courtesy? Alpinestars' Comp Pro Top is the finishing touch to your full-on suit of riding armor, with loads of flexible but firm foam padding that gives you the courage to send it without worrying that you'll ruin yourself if things don't quite work out.
The Comp Pro offers full chest, back, shoulder, and kidney protection, but it doesn't use the hard plastic common to most impact jackets. By opting instead for thick 8mm impact foam, Alpinestars was able to offer up serious protection that doesn't compromise mobility, so you don't feel like you're riding in a straightjacket or under a heavy load of football pads. The shoulder, back, and chest pads are all removable, so you can wash the moisture-wicking mesh and Lycra shirt that lies against your skin, and the wide kidney belt helps support your core in an impact without squeezing your guts while you're riding.

- Q & A
Hi I was wondering what level CE is the vest certified on?
And does it have any zippers to ease entry?
Alpinestars Comp Pro Top
Hi 1'm 5'10" got a belly on me, was wondering what size might fit better L or XL , i am a 38 waist.. 41 belly and narrower shoulders.. more worried about being tight with the kidney belt and around stomach...
I'd say your in between an XL or XXL actually. Take a look at their size chart, http://www.alpinestars.com/comp-pro-top-for-bns#.Vc1c2UmrSUk your chest measurement might be good to have as well.
im 5'10 and 190lbs. wide shoulder and chest. is large a good fit?
How is sizing, I'm 6'2 approximately 180, wondering whether to go with large or x-l.
This item is meant to be semi tight. It is an american sized product. Depending on your build, if you have wider shoulders and a bigger upper body I would go with the XL, other wise I would go with the large. This item will fit similar to your t-shirt size. If you have other question my email is email@example.com Feel free to contact me about any thing. Cheers
second review - after using it!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I like the fit. stays put and does not feel bulky when your riding. The material is a little itchy, thinking of wearing a very light shirt under it to keep it off my skin. Will make it easier to get off when your all sweaty too. The back protector is less intrusive then some others and not even bothersome on the lift when your leaning on it. I wish the shoulder pads were a little bigger and the chest pads were a little thicker. They will help you out in a fall but are far from the think hard padding. Overall I am happy with it. Took one fall on my shoulder and it helped take the impact. It's not going to give you that all out protection of the full, hard padded jerseys, but will give you decent protection and you won't ever heat on a hot day, it won't weigh you down and you forget your wearing it which is always nice
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got this in the mail last week. Tired it on and it seems to fit pretty well, does not feel bulky, shoulder pads seem like they would protect you but not too large or stiff. Chest pad is on the thinner side and is just soft foam. As the other review states, the shirt is kind of itchy. I have another sub gear shirt that is a different material and is way less itchy. I haven't used it yet for DH, I would probably wear a very thin shirt under it to help the itch.
It can take the "bang" for the buck
More downhill and moto specific. The material is pretty comfortable but it itches/scratches a little. Breathes well for pads. Takes impact well. Removable spine protector is a nice feature. Recomended highly.
