Motorcycle Jacket is not only popular in modern life but also an indispensable outfit in biker journeys. Not only ensuring compactness, tightness, wind resistance, good waterproofing, but Motorcycle Jackets for backpackers must also be smartly designed, most convenient for you while moving or storing.
The jacket uses mesh material, combined with cotton/khaki fabric in certain structural areas to resist abrasion, and does not tear too quickly when sliding on the road.
Cotton and Khaki.
Cloth jackets often use good anti-friction fabrics, while protecting and covering the rider from mud, slush, wind resistance, and relative waterproofing. Because they are not as breathable as mesh jackets, these fabric jackets often have many air intakes that can be opened and closed easily.
Leather is the most wear-resistant of the three materials and is also the most resistant to wind and water. Leather jackets are required every time you enter the racetrack or participate in any races similar to MotoGP races. Leather jackets are also the most expensive of the three materials.

The style of the jacket will be designed to suit the intended use of the jacket. There will be two most common types:
Sport and street models like the Textile Motorcycle Jacket will usually hug the driver's body quite closely to limit the wind, the body is short and cuts across the hips so that the shirt is not extruded with the hunched posture of these models.
These shirt models are not only used in competition, in the race, are also used daily, on short trips, and are almost suitable and comfortable to use with many different types of motorcycles, not just limited to two models of sport and street motorcycles.
For that reason, these jackets can be purchased at a variety of prices with the three material options listed above. Sport and street jackets can come with inner linings such as waterproof or warm layers, which can be removed to suit the weather.

The touring jacket is designed for long trips, used in different weather and temperature conditions. These models are almost like travel jackets, not too tight like sports jackets. The jacket has many pockets to hold your phone, wallet, and personal items.

3. Inner lining.
Inner linings of motorcycle jackets can include a warm layer and a waterproof layer.
The waterproof layer, as its name suggests, is only a relative waterproofing, and will not be able to replace a raincoat. You should read the product description carefully to know the waterproof feature of the shirt. In addition, with the waterproof layer inside, the outer layer can still absorb water and become quite heavy for long driving in the rain.
The inner layer of warmth will depend on the intended use of the jacket and will have different levels of warmth.
Today's modern jackets often integrate multiple layers or are sold separately to reduce the cost of the jacket in case you don't need all the lining on the inside. Therefore, you need to carefully read the product description of the motorcycle jacket you want to buy to know the accompanying functions of the jacket.

4. Armor pads included.
Most motorcycle jackets will be sold with a minimum of padded shoulder and elbow pads, which have a high rate of injury on the body. The back and chest padding will be available with different models, or just a symbolic foam pad, and must be purchased separately for these areas. These pads have the effect of reducing shocks and impacts on the driver's body and preventing serious injury.
These armor pads will have to meet the minimum safety certification CE level 1, and more advanced CE level 2.
The CE standard is written on each piece of armor separately. You need to remove the armor plate from your shirt to check. The CE level 2 standard is becoming quite popular, and many armors are using it as the minimum safety standard. The inner padded armor can be purchased separately and upgraded according to your needs. Levels from low to high:
CE Level 1
CE Level 2
One thing to note is that the padded armor pieces must be close to the body and not move too much, to be able to protect the body in the right position whenever an accident occurs. Therefore, choosing to buy and wear the right jacket size is important when choosing to buy a motorcycle jacket.
