Alpinestars Andes V2 Jacket Review


Alpinestars’ Andes V2 Jacket is a well-designed winter jacket for any mountain biker. It is made from soft and breathable textile, making it comfortable for riding in cold temperatures. However, it is poor at performance in wet weather and prone to scuffing. If you are considering purchasing this jacket for winter cycling, here are some factors you should consider.

Cold weather suit

The Alpinestars Andes V2 Jacket is a highly protective piece of clothing. It features removable CE level 2 shoulder and elbow protectors. It also has reinforced texturing for greater abrasion resistance. It also features reflective graphic details. The jacket comes with a two-year warranty.

The Andes V2 Jacket offers excellent breathability and water resistance. It also has a fully-removable thermal liner and a direct ventilation system. Its pockets are also water-resistant and have a storm flap to keep out rain.

Comfortable in high temperatures

Designed for long-distance touring, the Andes jacket provides warmth, flexibility, and cargo capacity. The streamlined, pre-curved sleeves are designed to fit naturally without sacrificing comfort or mobility. In addition, accordion stretch panels on the upper arms allow for maximum freedom of movement. The sleeves also feature snaps to help adjust upper arm length, and generous wrist closures allow the jacket to fit over a waterproof glove.

The Andes V2 jacket offers a waterproof shell made of Alpinestar’s Drystar technology. This material is 100% waterproof, breathable, and insulated for cold climates. It features an internal DVS lining to prevent sweating and is designed to prevent heat build-up.

Poor performance in rain

The Andes V2 Jacket offers excellent protection in cold weather and has a well-placed waterproof outer shell. It also features DVS and 3D mesh ventilation for better breathability. The Andes V2 Jacket is comfortable in temperatures as low as 30degC.

The Andes V2’s shell is constructed with Alpinestar’s Drystar technology, which makes it completely waterproof while remaining breathable. However, the jacket won’t perform as well in temperatures above 30degC, which is a problem when you’re out hiking in cold weather. The Andes V2 Jacket’s pockets are water-proof.


The Alpinestars Andes V2 Jacket comes with a built-in breathable membrane for rain protection. It has a 600-denier fabric shell with a waterproof liner inside. The jacket also features two chest-level pockets and a zippered waterproof pocket on the left internal breast.

The jacket is extremely versatile. It is suited for long distance touring, where you may experience a variety of different weather conditions. It is also designed for carrying a lot of gear. The Andes jacket is part of the Alpinestars Tech-Touring line. The matching pants are available separately.

Worn holes

The Andes V2 jacket is an improvement over its predecessor in several ways. For one, it has improved its cargo carrying capacity with new water-resistant pockets. These pockets are covered with a storm flap and are ideal for quick access to small items. The jacket also features a giant lower back pocket, two small pockets in the liner, and three Velcro-closed chest pockets.

Another improvement is the addition of Nucleon Flex-Plus armor. This type of armor stretches over the shoulder and drops over the front and back, providing improved impact protection.


The Alpinestars Andes V2 Jacket is a great choice for big and tall riders. It has excellent ventilation, waterproof protection, and is adjustable so it fits the rider comfortably. The jacket is made of polyester, and has CE Level 1 elbow and shoulder protectors. It’s also completely waterproof and includes the Drystar waterproof membrane. It also comes with a thermal lining and ventilation zippers.

The jacket is made of high-quality materials, and the construction is very well-made. It looks crisp and tailored. This makes it ideal for riding in mild to cold weather. The “drystar” lining keeps the jacket water proof, which is especially important in cold weather.
