Andes V3 Drystar Jacket

Rugged Resilience In Any Environment.

This jacket bears the same name as the legendary South American mountain range for a reason. The Andes v3 Drystar® Jacket is designed to weather the same radical and varying conditions seen in and around the namesake peaks.

Designed using Alpinestars exclusive Drystar® construction, the Andes v3 Drystar® Jacket offers 100% waterproofing and incredible breathability, even in aggressive riding conditions. The technically advanced construction of the Andes V3 jacket offers protection, abrasion resistance, and is adaptable to all weather conditions.

Construction

Couldn’t ask for a more rugged and versatile jacket to take on a trip around the world. The quality and construction, from the textile down to the zippers is top notch and will last you countless miles thorugh multiple countries and weather conditions like it has for me. I most enjoy the flexibility and unencumbered full range of motion the Andes V3 gives me. Whether I’m riding, setting up my camera gear, sitting at a restaurant, or just bending down to tie my shoe, the ease of motion this jacket provides is stellar.

AirFlow

The Andes V3 lets you customize your airflow, so I was very comfortable in both 40° Celsius desert rides and snowcapped mountains with freezing temperatures. The Andes V3 has some of the best ventilation I’ve ever experienced for a 4-season jacket.

Waterproofing

In 12 years of riding around the world I have never found a true 100% waterproof jacket. Monsoon season in Central America will push any jacket to its limit, but the Andes V3 jacket is as close as you can get to what a full 100% waterproof jacket can be. It performs well in light rain, quick downpours, and more.

Weight

Whether it’s over a weekend or a weeks-long trip across the globe, the Andes V3 is seriously comfortable and helps serious fatigue on longer rides. It’s heavy enough to provide all the protection you need, but lightweight enough not to feel burdensome.
