It has been a colder situation in Malaysia and looking for a jacket, I’ve found this nice blue coloured Alpinestars Lance 3 Layer Waterproof jacket. Then, it shocked me to find out the jacket is priced at USD399.95, which when converted to Malaysian Ringgit, worth about RM1,320. On further research, Alpinestars is actually a premium brand which the price was not meant to be cheap. For example, a simple T-shirt can cost at RM120. Still, I’m loving this jacket.
Coming from Alpinestars, we can expect highest quality from the line of apparel. This Lance 3L features waterproof outer shell, breathable membrane and 130g removable thermal liner jacket. All this can be fitted with Bio Armor chest and back protection if you want to take more than just a jacket.
