Default Alpinestars GP TECH AIR Jacket HELP

Hey guys wondering if anyone else had this problem with this particular jacket.



Just Bought a Alpinestars GP Tech Air Jacket $900 worth only to find that my helmet hits on the large back hump when I attempt to lean forward into a tuck position blocking off your vision as you lean down. Really disappointed as the jacket is so awesome otherwise. Really good fit and protection, just the back hump problem. Seems the back hump is positioned too close to neck. Its a really dangerous problem that renders the jacket useless to wear while riding a bike.

I've tried it with and without my aplinestars bionic back protector and with the backprotector in the 3 different positions, same problem. I'm also wearing brand new alpinestars track pants that are zipped to the jacket.

I've emailed the distributor and will let you know what the outcome is but damn, what a disappointment from a high end company like astars.

I have no problems with my astars gp pro one piece suit, and i love all my other astars gear.

Anyone else had this issue?
