What to Look for in Motorcycle Apparel

What to look for in a motorcycle jacket:

  • Make sure that your leather motorcycle jacket has a thermal and rain insert.
  • Any zippers on your leather motorcycle jacket should be dense enough to take daily abuse. Many bikers have found that their leather jackets had to be retired early because the zipper broke (due to constant strain and abuse).
  • With the leather motorcycle jacket wrist closures, it's always a good idea for them to have Velcro, because zippers and buttons will only give you a certain amount of closure, however, with Velcro you will be able to determine how tight the wrist closures actually are.
All motorcycle apparel should allow you to be comfortable, stay safe and protect you from the environments that you will be facing head-on.
