AlpinestarsDrop 2 Jersey - Short Sleeve - Men's

Let them eat dust.

Ride lifts in the hot sun or pedal up to the top of a rowdy descent in the Alpinestars Drop 2 Men’s Short-Sleeve Jersey, but don’t be afraid of getting after it. The Drop 2 is light enough for long trail rides—check out the strategically placed mesh vents—but suitable for DH, too, with sleeves that hover somewhere between short and 3/4-length and two hook-and-loop pockets that have ports for cable routing, because nothing keeps the stoke higher than some nu metal jams from 2002.

Fantastic MTB jersey

  • Fit: True to size

This jersey is extremely well designed with wicking textiles and special ventilated fabric along the sides and upper back.

Alpinestars is an Italian company with a history in Moto. I've been really impressed by the quality and QC of Alpinestars MTB gear. This stuff is up there with the best quality MTB clothing made (Troy Lee Design, Pearl Izumi), but less ubiquitous.

Matches perfectly with Alpinestars MTB shorts like the excellent Pathfinder shorts.

Runs small in size

The quality of this shirt feels good however the jersey runs small. I would suggest getting 1-2 sizes larger than normal for good fit.

This one has become my favorite jersey. Extremely light and breathable material, keeps your temps in check on the hottest of days. Couple of features that make it an awesome jersey for race day, or everyday riding; there is a pocket on each hip for quick-grab storage, also the terry cloth panel on waist makes quick work of mud on your goggles bro. I'd say the sleeves are somewhere between 3/4 and a short sleeve, quite comfortable if you ask me. Can't go wrong with this Jersey!


Looks Better Than It Fits

The look and feel of the jersey are great. The chest and length are spot on. Unfortunately, the sleeves are a bit longer and larger than expected. This could be to accommodate elbow pads but without pads, the sleeves are floppy. I fit most small jerseys pretty well and sleeves have never been an issue with the exception of this jersey. My upper arms are 15" in diameter and I average a thousand push-ups a week so I don't have small arms. This jersey made me feel like a T-Rex. I added a star because of Backcountry's excellent customer service and ease of returning the item.
