No ride should be without upper body protection. Before you hit the road, be sure to suit up with your motorcycle jacket or vest of choice. Road rash is no joke and a motorcycle specific jacket or vest is your best bet at preventing it. Today’s options have come a long ways since the first riding specific gear was released. The gear gets more and more technical every year to better protect you, keep you comfortable and looking great. But the classic styles still exist for those who enjoy the timeless look of the original leather motorcycle jackets and vests.
Motorcycle jackets come in all different styles and materials. The ever popular leather cruiser jackets are still one of the most popular. They provide great slide protection and their style is hard to beat. But over the years, textiles have caught up in protection and can be lighter and more mobile while riding. They can provide great weather protection as well. Look for armor in both leather and textiles for added impact protection.
Motorcycle vests are a good option for riders who want some slide protection, yet want to stay cool in the hot summer sun. Both leather and denim vests are available, yet leather provides the better protection. Some sport bike vests even include armor back protectors for added protection in crucial areas.
