Leather or textile? It's one of the most common rider questions and the debate goes on and on, but in the end there is no overall right choice, just a right choice for each rider. Choosing which material suits you best, is the most personal part of picking a motorcycle jacket. We know what you really want: a jacket that offers you the best in protection, comfort, and style. That's what makes the choice so personal, because you want your jacket to fit your own personal sense of style and riding. Can't decide which option is best for you? Don't worry, we won't leave you in the dust, we're here to help you weigh the pros and cons.

Check out our buyer's guide on choosing whether a leather or textile motorcycle jacket is right for you! Already have a jacket? Let us know what you ride with in a comment below!

I'm sticking with my textile! I laid down a 1300 Silverado last year, went under the bike and slid under a guard-rail. Only a couple very minor scuffs..... Only thing that got tore up was my hands (no gloves); You can bet I wear gloves, at least 1/2 finger gloves, from now on! It was a 5 yr. old jacket and I didn't have the armour in; just the insulated liner. I still have the jacket; but insurance paid for another one, so got a 3/4 lentth for those cold morning going to work :)

Textile. With as few seams as possible and with double inseam double top stitching. AeroStitch Roadcrafter is a very good one.

I have both with the textile usually my hot weather choice. I would rather wear the leather if not too hot, just because I really like it ?. I'm old school and old...

I see there is a denim with Kevlar lining available that I may give myself for Father's Day if the kids don't come through.
