Let’s have a look at the men’s motorcycle jackets and find out about them together.
The leather jacket trend started with aviation pilots who used this attire as a sturdy means of protection. Since then the media and movies have become saturated with icons wearing leather jackets and looking extremely cool. But are they all actually leather moto jackets? Well, not necessarily.
A true leather motorcycle jacket has added protection in the elbows and points of contact to give the best resistance to the concrete in case of a bike accident. Nowadays this padding is not quite so noticeable due to the more modern materials used but nonetheless, the protection is still there.
Another factor to take into consideration for the authentic version is that it needs to be made out of true leather. Some animal-friendly alternatives do exist that still count but they need to have the same amount of durability otherwise they won’t be as good.
