What should I look for in protective leather goods?

Be Protected With Leather Goods

As a biker, you have your choice of literally hundreds of leather goods, which range from leather motorcycle gloves to leather motorcycle vests. All of these leather goods have the same purpose, to provide you with ultimate warmth, comfort and style. However, there are some tips that you must keep in mind when you're purchasing leather goods. Before you purchase, make sure that you inspect the items closely to ensure quality and comfort.

The most important aspect you should look for in all leather goods is whether they thicker in areas that are supposed to be extra thick. The main areas that you should look for are your elbows, hips, knees and shoulders. You can tell if your leather goods are double-thick in the right areas by simply looking to see if there is an extra layer of leather on top of the outside leather. However, you must make sure that the extra leather is not simply sewn into the leather. You can tell if the leather goods have been properly made by slipping your hand under the garment and if you can separate the layers, than it is a good design.

Also, when you're buying leather goods, try to stay away from excessive amounts of studs, the main reason for this is because if you were to crash these studs weaken the leather, and will either cause harm to your body, or will rip off the leather, leaving your body exposed to the harsh pavement.
