Needless to say, a motorcycle jacket appears to be an essential component of every biker’s gear. It’s because it protects the greater part of your body when riding a bike. Respectively, to pick up the best motorcycle jacket, aside from knowing the right size, you should also be aware of all key types of this accessory.

Tourist textile motorcycle jacket

This textile fairly long clothing provides maximum comfort when traveling long distances.

As a rule, all textile jackets are made of polyester 600D. The given material does not get wet with light rain. On the other hand, this motorcycle jacket is unable to withstand heavy rainfall.

The given material is quite resistant to abrasion. So, if you occasionally find yourself on the asphalt, it won’t be erased.

In these jackets, moisture protection is given the top priority. A moisture-proof and simultaneously breathable membrane is sewn inside the jacket. To successfully withstand all the weather challenges on your way, you can take advantage of a removable insulated lining that can be easily removed if it's hot.
A typical tourist jacket comes with ventilation valves in front and behind. Unfortunately, such jackets can’t ensure sufficient protection of your spine.

Textile city motorcycle jacket
Compared to the tourist one, it’s smaller. It covers the biker’s body to the waist. The functionality is nearly the same as that of the tourist ones. However, here you will have fewer pockets and more sports attributes.

It’s also made of 600D polyester. It also comes with the same membrane, removable insulated liner, built-in protection, ventilation valves.

Textile summer mesh jacket
Unlike the first two, this one doesn’t ensure protection against weather challenges. In particular, it applies to the shoulders, arms, and back. Accordingly, you’ll inevitably get wet in the rainy weather. The given type of motorcycle clothing is designed for hot weather.

Armored motorcycle jacket
That’s the most reliable element of bike protection. If you opt for it, then your elbows, back, and chest will be reliably protected.

Unlike a textile jacket, a leather one is stronger and more reliable and safer when the biker falls on the ground. If you fall being dressed in this stuff, you’ll just end up with minor scuffs.

The leather jacket is fairly warm, despite the fact that it comes with ventilation valves. However, if you reside in a hot country, you’d better opt for a textile motorcycle accessory.

Classic leather motorcycle jacket
The design of this clothing is close to everyday style. It boasts comfortable fit. You can wear this clothing when riding a classic motorcycle or chopper. These perforated jackets come with reliable protection for the back, shoulders, elbows. If you reside in southern regions, you won’t feel any discomfort wearing this stuff.

Sports leather motorcycle jacket
It’s opposite to the classic one. When buying a sports bike jacket, it’s crucial to consider that it fits like your second skin. The given clothing provides the maximum level of protection. Your shoulders and elbows will be reliably protected by metal or plastic inserts. Finally, a sports leather motorcycle jacket features a waterproof breathable membrane.

Extra tips

Take into account these nuances before purchasing this stuff:
• Make sure it’s fairly comfortable and doesn’t constrain movements.
• Ensure it’s durable enough.
• Make sure that protective inserts are reliably attached to it.

Choosing the right size for your bike jacket

In order to find out the size of this clothing, you need to measure it. To be exact, you should measure your waist, chest, and arm. With these measurements at hand, it won’t be a problem to choose the proper size of a bike jacket.
