    Everyone have their own choice for wearing but I have a question that what type of motorcycle jacket you like most. A combination of Safety, Style and fitting makes a jacket  perfect.  Give me your ideas that what should be a jacket have?

      I have a classic rockers-style jacket, but without the fringe.

      I suspect I look a bit 'Chips' in it, but I'm not a racer, I'm a cruiser; built for comfort not speed, so I stay with the off-centre zip and collar variety

      The most important thing is that it fits snugly when zipped up and so wont shift or come off if there is an accident.

      I like this one! I'm all about style, who cares about safety when you're riding a motorcycle? heehee

    It depends on the length of the ride for me.  Leather is best, I'm also not a fan of fringe but I usually grab a lightweight mesh-I like how they breathe and are weather proof in case I get caught in the rain but they still have the armour to protect me.

    Mine is leather. With parts that zip open for air. Its cream with black stripes on the sleeves.

    ohhhhh...good more women that like bikes!

    I have a few; most are leather - different colours; no fringes for me.  one that is synthetic with padding in the right spots for protection - had it for about 15 years - it's a really good one; one that is mesh with padding of course - bought it just for riding in the desert.  In the winter, I include a plug in jacket underneath my leather ones to keep warm.

      ...forgot your question...a jacket should have cuffs that don't allow wind up them......nor for a lot of wind to enter from the bottom of the jacket..so no baggy stuff...should fit so that you can layer if you need to.  and as CC said - it must breath when you need it to.  the neck area is important to fit well too....keeping wind/rain/cold out....pockets with zippers/velcro is a must, so you don't lose anything....and the material is the preference of the rider..but should be protective.

      later...

    Being a fan of military style, I prefer jackets made in it. You know, for example A2 Flight Jacket is maybe the perfect thing for riding in a cool windy weather. I can wear even a WWII coat and German Style helmet for some events, but it is not very convenient for everyday riding. So, I prefer high-quality, pathosless, convenient, leather jackets in military style.

    My preference changes depending on the weather. I have jackets for summer and winter use. I noticed recently the winter ones with the inner lining to stay warm don't fit quite as well when the lining is removed for summer use, so it's best to just get 2 jackets.

    I actually have my own leather jacket biker website, but I'm not going to list it here cause it will be seen as spam.

    For protection you should get a top grain leather jacket, 1.8 MM to 2.0 MM thick. Cowhide, buffalo or pigskin preferred. Get one with air vents so you can let your moisture escape and not have the jacket blow up like a balloon.

    BTW, buffalo hide jackets are not tougher than cowhide ones. smile
