Choosing the right motorcycle jacket is essential for your crash protection. But if you’re a novice rider, you may not know which features to look for. Here are some tips to make the right choice: Care and maintenance – Like all other pieces of protective gear, your motorbike jacket needs to be maintained to make it look as good as possible. Regular cleaning and maintenance will ensure your jacket lasts for a long time. Wearing a motorcycle can make you sweat a lot, leaving behind a sticky and stinky residue. To clean your motorbike jacket, use a desalter or a shampoo to remove the sweat and dirt.
Very Useful For Long Rides
Features – You should look for extra pockets. Many jackets don’t have enough of them, so check the number of pockets on the inside. Some jackets have a zipper on the front, which is very annoying – make sure it has a hidden security Napoleon pocket. Other features to look for include extra deep pockets in the hips and two external pockets for keys and coins. As you’ll probably need to carry a few items while riding, it’s better to have more internal pockets than a few external ones.
The main materials used in motorbike jackets vary – the Alpinestars’ Rally jacket is made of 1.3 mm cowhide leather and features Alpinestars’ RideKnit textile. The fabric is a unique blend of knitted mesh and abrasion-resistant thermowelded microfibers. This blend of fabrics allows air to flow to the areas that need cooling, while flexing without losing its structural stability.
