Motorcycle Jackets – The Complete Buyer's Guide
Choosing a Motorbike riding jacket can be difficult, especially for new riders, based on style and safety. Regardless of material, we recommend a full-body design that fits snugly but doesn't restrict movement. Your jacket should reflect your taste, but it should also be suited to the type of motorcycle you ride and your preferred riding position.
For example, a shorter jacket will be more comfortable if you often ride a sport bike with an aggressive riding position. A longer jacket might fit better if you usually ride a cruiser with an upright or laid-back posture. Touring riders who spend long days on the road will benefit from having lots of pockets for carrying smaller items. On the other hand, commuters and tourers who do most of their riding on city streets will want complete protection from wind, rain, and cold--which means they'll probably prefer leather jackets over textile ones.
Leather motorbike jackets for men are famous for their comfort and durability. They soften over time, acquire a nice patina, and can last years if properly cared for. However, leather does not protect against rain, so you should layer up in winter. A leather jacket can be warm during summer and fall/spring as a natural material.
Several textile motorcycle jackets are in the market, including those made with waxed cotton and Gore-Tex fabric. They are generally weatherproof than leather because they include a waterproof membrane. Drop lining and lamination are two common ways to construct a textile jacket with a waterproof membrane. In drop lining, the waterproof/breathable membrane is sandwiched between two layers of material; in lamination, the membrane is bonded directly to one layer of fabric by adhesive or ultrasonic welding. Laminated textile jackets are stiffer than their drop-lined counterparts, but both require breaking-in time before they feel comfortable enough for long rides.
