I came across your article because I'm trying to find sizing info for an Alpinestars jacket for my girlfriend (without coming out and asking her for her exact dimensions). All I have to go on is that she's 5 feet 6 inches and about 127 pounds. The consensus on the web seems to be that the Alpinestars gear (as you said) runs a little small, so I'm going to try the 44. She says she usually wears a medium in the US. So, thanks for that.

You're right, by the way about the attractiveness of the gear. You look great! Nice kit indeed.

Thanks for the writeup.

I bought the Vika - trousers and jacket. I love them both. The sizing is slightly on the small size; I had to really squeeze the trousers on at first but the leather does give after a while. Do buy a size larger if you want to put in a back protector. The leather is tougher than you think. I have given mine a few scrapes and all is well so far! My only reservation is that there is no protection for the hips. It would ruin the line - yes - but it does make you feel a little vulnerable. Beautiful suit though. Love it.
