Alpinestars Stella Andes v2 Drystar Jacket
Named after the longest continental mountain range on planet Earth, it comes as no surprise that the second iteration Alpinestars Stella Andes Drystar Jacket is designed with even more long-haul luxuries than the original.
Direct-ventilation zippered intakes at the chest and exhausts at the back allow for direct airflow through advanced poly-fabric textile construction as well as the Alpinestars-exclusive Drystar membrane. Airflow direct to the rider drastically improves warm-weather performance over the previous design, where all air and moisture exchange had to take place through the waterproof, breathable Drystar membrane.
The Stella Andes 2 comes standard with elbow and shoulder protectors and is also set up for the latest & lightest Nucleon CE Level 2 back and chest armor, for full CE Level 2 protection without bulk. Featuring both upgraded armor and a temperature-application range as vast as the Andes, you can tackle whatever your adventure has in store with confidence, knowing you are protected from the elements as well as from impact and abrasion in the formidable, functional Alpinestars Stella Andes V 2 Drystar Jacket.
