I needed a new jacket to go with a pair of Stella leather riding pants. This jacket fits perfectly. Alpinestars does a really good job on a realistic fit for women instead of those brands that think all women wear skin tight leathers. It zips to my pants. It has protection in all the right places. I added my spine protector inside. The colors are not too bright but bright enough. I'm 5'6 and 140 pounds and I got a size 44 which is a US 8. Love my new jacket.
