Leave the battle armor at home.

Realizing there's no need to look like some armored warrior on your favorite gravity trails and enduro courses, the designers at Alpinestars designed the Paragon Vest to be as streamlined and lightweight as possible. The Paragon sits close to your body, allowing you to layer it underneath your favorite trail jersey. Stretch mesh fabric conforms to your torso while maximizing airflow during strenuous riding scenarios. For handy storage, the padded side pockets and zippered rear compartment secures trail necessities, such as spare tubes, small tools, and snacks.

The Paragon's defining feature is the removable, ergonomically shaped back protector, which features a Level 1 CE-certification. This gives you extra peace of mind before bombing down steep trails littered with obstacles just begging to chuck you over the bars. Besides literally "having your back," the Paragon Vest stores your hydration reservoir in the same compartment that houses the back protector. For easier drinking, the Paragon provides two different tube routing options, meaning it'll always be out of the way, yet readily accessible when you need a drink.

  • Low-bulk protection for enduro racing
  • Effortlessly slides underneath a trail jersey
  • Level 1 back protector is quickly removable
  • Stores your hydration bladder in the rear
  • Two different tube routing configurations
  • Side stretch pockets with flexible padding
  • Zippered rear pocket for cash and keys

Saved my bacon!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Had a good fall after clipping a tree on a moderately rocky trail while riding the other night. Hit the ground / rolled a bit. Besides a scraped forearm, I rode away ok! Good product so far/ breathes very well/ no issues with construction or zippers after 10 rides.

The ALPINESTARS Paragon Vest at first impression has just worked for me. I've started to push my descent riding and want to make sure the third most important part of me was protected. I went one size down from my jersey size and it fit perfectly tight underneath. The pad in the spine protects very well as I've already had an over the bars-tuck and roll crash on it and came out fine. The pockets on the side have enough protection where I can put some smallest tools in there and feel like I won't get stabbed if something goes awry.
One star down only to experience as I haven't tried the H2O function though I'm interested in it and I hope it works well. Will come back when I try it.

The Alpinestars Paragon vest is the most comfortable insurance ever. Once you put it on, it disappears! It is light, well vented, and fits snug enough to prevent shifting, but not so tight that its restrictive. The neoprene lines pockets are genius-finally someplace safe to stash my phone! Lastly for those epic rides it will carry a water bladder. It runs true to size, though a bit long.
