Motorcycle jackets for the rider you!
A quality jacket is a must have gear for every motorcycle rider! The quality of the jacket tops the priority list followed by other factors such as protection, durability, style and comfort. The big and voluminous sweaters have been replaced with the stylish and striking jackets these days. The pattern of the jacket can help in improving your style statement greatly. It not only gives the rider the appropriate bulk but also adds to the masculine appeal to a great extent by magnifying the overall appearance. The plethora of fabrics available in terms of the jackets for bike riders makes it suitable to be worn for all-weather conditions. They are also available in different sizes, colors, fits and price range to cater to the needs of one and all. There are various customized finishes in terms of the plane as well as hooded jackets for men at an alluring price tag available from ALPINESTARS, SHIFT, FIELDSHEER, ICON, JOE ROCKET, RIVER ROAD, TOUR MASTER etc. to name a few.
Before you shell out your hard-earned money on a jacket, there are various factors to be considered to help you get a good deal. The proper fit is of prime importance when you go to purchase a jacket. You will be wearing the jacket and sitting in different positions on the bike during your ride. So keep in mind that the sleeves should be slightly longer with room in the shoulder region. The length of the jacket is also of importance as there should be no gap between the top of the trousers and the bottom of your jacket. Jackets with closures around the neck, wrist and waist region offer more protection and are also less distracting during the ride. You must always choose the jacket that fits your arm length well.
This is because the jacket is the only thing that protects your skin from the harsh rays of the sun and assault to the skin by insects, pollution and dust. Most jackets available these days come with padding at the regions of elbows, back and shoulders. These regions are the ones that often get injured during an unfortunate road crash or puncture wound. Hence the extra material or padding will act as a protective armor for you! Few jackets even offer a removable hard protection which is replaceable. Water-proof material is critical to keep in mind before making the purchase.
As for the jacket pockets, I definitely feel that the more, the merrier indeed! You must also look for jackets with inner pockets. It will be very helpful for you to have your license, wallet, cash, keys etc. in safe place. The outer pockets tend to open up during the high-speed ride in heavy winds. So always go for the ones with zippers or even cover-up flaps. This will help in preventing your shades, gloves, spark plugs, head phones, trail tools etc. from falling down. Check out the ones that have vents in the shoulder and under arm regions from ICON. This will be very beneficial for you, especially during summers as it will allow some ventilation, lest you will feel like being roasted in the heat!
As for the fabrics, there is huge variety such as the jackets in leather, nylon, denim, faux fur etc. which come in muted colors as well as those with glossy finishes. Whatever fabric you choose, you must always choose a jacket which isn’t very heavy but light-weighted. The leather jackets are perhaps the most popular choice. You can go with dark blue, chocolate and black colors for the casual and polished look. While you can also choose from striking hues such as fuchsia, turquoise, olives, orange, and mauves etc. which makes the rider look more lively and youthful. Besides the color, you also have variety in terms of the accessories and embellishments. You can go with the plane jackets to those that have jeweled zippers, pockets with studs lined, brass buttons etc. When you buy a jacket, you must check the seams and the stitching on the hems and lapel areas. This is because these regions are the ones that see a lot of movement. This aspect plays an important role in the durability of the jacket and hence it’s longer life!
So go and check out the motorcycle jackets for yourself which are widely available in various styles and fits today!
