Motorcycle jackets

Choosing a motorcycle jacket is probably the most important gear decision you have to make. The huge choice of biker jackets on the market can be bewildering. There are the safety issues to consider - how abrasion resistant is the jacket material; are there reinforced areas; what level is the shoulder and elbow armour; is a back protector included or optional? Then you need to think about the waterproofing and venting properties of the jacket. Will you be riding in the summer or winter or both? These days a textile motorcycle jacket can be just as effective as leather in terms of protection. But leather has no thermal qualities, and is very poor when it comes to keeping the rider dry, as it simply absorbs moisture. Staying safe on a bike is helped when you ride comfortably, and in most circumstances, hot or cold, wet or dry, you'll be more comfortable in a textile jacket. Textile jackets  also tend to come equipped with a whole host of technical features that often don't make their way onto leather motorcycle jackets. Choose leather if your priority is looking good, or if you’re riding on the track. Choose textile for commuting and touring.

Halvarssons Vansbro jacket in black

Bruce: Dry in Scotland...

Stayed dry for a very rainy week-long tour around Scotland. The thing I really like about laminate is when youre camping, it dries out overnight..

Klim Marrakesh jacket in teak brown

MMLV: Possibly The best jacket I own.

I watched Chris review of this jacket and was impressed. Ive bought a lot of kit from Motolegends and I have never been disappointed. I have a load of Rukka kit which, I have to say, is excellent the Nivala 2 suit is incomparable. I wanted a discreet summer jacket which would look good on an adventure bike and a cruiser style bike and to complicate things I wanted a larger size. This is something lesser manufacturers dont seem to offer in the UK. I already had a set of Scott waterproofs so the layering idea held some appeal. I took the plunge, ordering the Marrakesh with the waist zip conversion, and crossed my fingers. Since it arrived I have not worn another jacket on either of my bikes. The Marrakesh is so comfortable, its ridiculous, particularly given the levels of protection it offers. It zips nicely to my jeans with the Halvarsons waist belt thingy and flows so much air on the bike it makes rides on hot days so much more enjoyable. The manufacturing quality is faultless, and the jacket looks great. Id wear the Marrakesh for a summer tour without hesitation. Maybe not in the winterautumn, but then I have a Nivala 2 for that. I was so impressed with the Marrakesh jacket that I also ordered the Zephyr to go with it. If this is in your price bracket, my opinion is that you would struggle to find better.

Halvarssons Lysvik jacket in black

Rob Down: Value for Money

Excellent summer jacket with first class venting. Comfortable, relatively light weight and looks good on and off the bike. A good price for Halvarssons. Just back from Spain and mixed weather - just perfect for a trip in the Picos de Europa.
