Going from riding a motorcycle to casually hanging out with friends in town is more of a balancing act than you might think when it comes to gear. You want to make sure you’re safe for the ride and not head out in a t-shirt and tattered jeans, but if you show up in full race leathers or a full-body high-vis riding suit, you’re going to garner some looks. The Alpinestars Rideout Scion 2L Waterproof Jacket lands in between those to extremes, albeit closer to the more relaxed side of the spectrum.
Seam-sealed, waterproof fabric and waterproof zippers give the Rideout Scion jacket the look of a regular zip-up rain jacket, but underneath the two main layers of breathable material is a mesh layer with light impact protection. At the shoulders, elbows and back there’s CE-approved protection to keep you safe while riding around town. The armor is pretty light compared to what you’d want for a regular ride, but for just shooting down into town, the pared back jacket does the trick.
Where the Rideout Scion works in your favor, however, is it can double as a casual rain jacket, even if you don’t plan on throwing a leg over your bike. The impact armor is light and pliable enough that it’s not overly uncomfortable or bulky when you’re walking around town. While it usually has a price tag of $220, today, the Rideout Scion is nearly 50 percent off at $115. Essentially, you get two jackets for the price of one, and just in time for the misty autumn weather to roll in.
