Which type of jacket you choose depends on what kind of engine you drive and how you use your motorcycle. Examples include sporty motorcyclists, touring riders and city riders.
What type of leather jacket for which rider?
The sporty leather motorcycle jacket, a (short) leather jacket that fits tightly on the body is mainly worn on a sports or a sport-touring engine. The sports driver is sitting in a stooped position on his bike and a longer jacket would then get in the way. It is also true that a sporty driver can be found on the track during good weather or on the highway. During racing, the rider experiences utmost concentration and deep intensity and this also makes you warm regardless of the outside temperature. It is therefore nice that summer leather jackets have perforated leather to let in a lot of air.
The cruiser / touring leather motorcycle jacket is the perfect jacket for the tough touring rider. During the long rides the leather jacket offers protection against the cold, wind and rain. The leather is treated with water-resistant material to prevent water from passing through. And leather is a natural product that shields against wind or cold anyway. For the hot summer days there are the perforated versions. And for the winter there are leather jackets with removable thermo liners.
The leather motorcycle jacket for the city rider must offer protection on the motorcycle or scooter and at the same time it has to be comfortable to be worn all day. It is also important that it has an appearance that looks like an everyday trendy leather jacket that you want to be seen with.

What are the most important characteristics of a leather jacket?

As the title indicates, these jackets are made of leather. They are available in different types of leather. Cowhide is the most frequently used for this. Leather is the safest material for motorcycle clothing. It is sustainable and strong. In the higher price range, kangaroo leather is also incorporated into the leather jackets. Kangaroo leather is thinner and finer than cow leather and at the same time it is also more durable. A very important property of leather is that it forms itself to your body. A jacket that is somewhat uncomfortable at first will feel like a second skin over time. Leather is a natural product that is breathable. It is also anti-fungal and anti-dust mites.

Fit Leather Motorcycle Jacket:
Leather feels a bit stiff and that may be a little uncomfortable at first, but as mentioned earlier, after a while, the leather molds to your body.

This is especially nice when putting on the jacket, because that gives more space. A flexible jacket also makes the difference on the motorcycle.
Lining Leather Motorcycle Jacket:
In leather jackets usually there is no membrane because they are worn during good weather. The leather jackets for long journeys are usually provided with a removable thermal lining.
