Joe Rocket Motorcycle Jacket
You have an awesome motorcycle, and now you need the best accessory money can buy: A hot motorcycle jacket. The first thing to consider is how it will perform when you are wearing it. Will it keep you cool, or warm? What will happen if you deal with the worst-case scenario and get into a wreck? The Joe Rocket Motorcycle Jacket is our top pick. It is made with a Rock Tex outer shell, which is a super-durable nylon-polyester fabric blend. If you skid in this jacket, it is designed to protect you from road rash and won’t get ripped up easily. That Rock Tex fabric is also 100% waterproof. Ride in the rain, and it will not penetrate your jacket. Despite being tough and waterproof, this jacket still breathes, thanks to cross-linked ventilation sections on the inside. A wind tunnel cooling system helps to circulate the air so you don’t feel overheated. Select from 10 different colors at Joe Rocket.
Chouyatou Men’s Leather Jacket
There are few things sexier than a leather jacket. Am I right, ladies and gentlemen? And if you want to really feel sexy, check out the price tag on our budget pick, the Chouyatou Men’s Leather Jacket. OK, yes, it is faux leather, but you will never be able to tell the difference. As they say, the price is right. This is high-quality faux leather, with a 100% polyester lining. It comes in 5 different shades, including a burgundy red, two shades of brown, a deep coffee and black. The collar is in a vintage style, with an old-school belt attached. The belt is adjustable. The front zips up, and there are also zippers on the cuffs and in the chest pocket. There is one more functional pocket on the inside. Nothing will fall out as you ride. This jacket will hit right at the waist and fits true to American sizes. It weighs just one pound total.
Milwaukee Leather Motorcycle Jacket
The Fonz would be jealous of the Milwaukee Leather Motorcycle Jacket. It is the ultimate in cool, after all. This real leather jacket is at a price point lower than most, too. Why should an avid motorcycle rider consider this purchase? It looks great, and we will get to that in a moment. Leather is also, however, a great textile to wear for safety purposes. It is sturdy and has good abrasion resistance. It should also be thick, and that is another plus for the Milwaukee Jacket. It comes with a full sleeve zip-out thermal liner. Remove the liner, and you still have a jacket that will keep you warm on the road without forcing you to break into a sweat. Side lace detailing keeps air moving and allows the wearer to find the perfect fit. In classic biker style, this jacket comes in only one color: Black. Still not convinced? Check out the three front pockets, cool guy style.
WantDo Faux Leather Jacket
One of the things to consider when purchasing a motorcycle jacket is comfort. If you cannot move around comfortably in your new outfit, you will find it tough to drive and maneuver on the road. That’s why our reviewers made sure the WantDo Faux Leather Jacket was on the list. On the outside, the shell is faux leather. The inner lining is 100% polyester. It comes only in black, and it is constructed to look like a hooded sweater and a jacket are being worn together. The faux leather stops water and wind, making this jacket both waterproof and a windbreaker. A padded liner with cotton padding is sewn into the polyester inside, offering additional protection to motorcycle riders. You will be able to store all of your stuff easily, including your keys and your wallet. There are 2 zippered hand pockets, 2 zippered chest pockets, and 1 internal pocket. Select from sizes ranging from small to XXXX-large.
Milano Sport Motorcycle Jacket
Something that sets motorcycle jackets apart from regular jackets, aside from their appearance, is the padding. If you see the words “CE-approved padding” when you make your buy, you are in good shape. That means the appropriately padded liners have been placed on the shoulders and the elbows, and often the back as well. If you are involved in a crash, they can be the difference between bumps and bruises, and serious injuries. The Milano Sport Motorcycle Jacket has CE-approved padding on the shoulders and the elbows. The thermal quilted liner that is also located inside the nylon shell is removable. The Milano comes in 5 different color combos. All black, and black with red, with green, with blue and with white. On each jacket, reflective stripes are added to the upper arms and the back. You’ll love the look, and you’ll love the feel, thanks to vents on the chest and the lower back. You’ll be smoking hot in the Milano.
Viking Cycle Stealth Jacket
Your mother would probably be grateful if you bought the Viking Cycle Stealth Motorcycle Jacket. That’s because it is not just a jacket: It is also a layer of armor. The Viking Stealth Jacket has a lot hidden under the surface, starting with CE-approved Level 3 armor on the back, the shoulders and the elbows. There are three liners, starting with the mesh liner, which stays put to regulate temperature and assist with sweat. The other two are removable: The polyester quilted vest inner liner and the full sleeve waterproof middle liner. It doesn’t stop there. On the outside, you have patented fabric lined with polycarbonate armor on the shoulders and the elbows. The overlapping mandarin padded collar hugs the neck handsomely and offers it some protection as well. Weighing in at 5.5 pounds, this jacket comes in sizes small to XX-large. It is black, with a white reflective stripe across the chest and the back. You will love it!
IDARBI Faux Leather Jacket
The IDARBI Faux Leather Jacket checks off so many of our boxes. For one, it is extremely attractive. Soak in the beautiful espresso brown and deep black colors of the faux leather outer shell. Then there is the detachable hood with the adjustable drawstring, changing the look of this costume entirely. Keep it on or take it off, depending on the weather, and your mood. There’s more: The IDARBI has long sleeves that will stay flexible on elbows and shoulders as you sit on your bike. It also has a high neck with a snap closure for protection against windy days at high speeds. There are four pockets, all with zipper closures to ensure that your valuables don’t fly away from you unexpectedly. This will become your favorite jacket for riding, and for casual nights out. Pair it with jeans and your best sunglasses, and you will suddenly be the life of the party. You will love to rock the IDARBI!
Pro Mesh Motorcycle Jacket
The pro rider and the weekend warrior will both love what the Pro Mesh Motorcycle Jacket brings to the table. This is a jacket designed specifically for a guy on his hog. What are we talking about? This jacket works in the summer, spring, winter, and fall. The lightweight poly mesh fabric is resistant to tearing and wear. Inside is a liner that makes the jacket waterproof – it is easy to remove if you do not need to use it. There is both reflective tape and reflective piping to protect the rider when he is traveling at night. This jacket is black, with classic white highlights. Now, let’s talk about the armor. It is on the inside AND the outside! Inside, you’ve got 5 pieces of removable armor on the elbows, the shoulders and the back. Outside, there is rubber padding on the back and the chest. Hard plastic pieces cover the elbows and the shoulders. It’s a real steal!
Pilot Motosport Motorcycle Jacket
The Pilot Motosport Motorcycle Jacket melds function and style effortlessly. It is all-terrain and all-utility, and it’s ready to use all year round. Let’s begin our review where it really counts: The body armor. The Core Force Active armor technology used by Pilot Motorsport is CE-approved. Made of polyurethane foam, it bends and moves with your muscles, but firms and hardens on impact. There are pads on the shoulders and the elbows, and the ones on the chest and back can be adjusted. There is an inner liner that is both waterproof and windproof. It breathes well and moves moisture away from the skin or inner garments. If you don’t want to use it, just zip it out to remove. The Pilot Motorsport Jacket comes in 6 different designs, each with high-visibility reflective neon striping. We liked the neon yellow best so that riders can be seen in any light conditions. The jacket weighs 4 pounds and comes with a 2-year warranty.
Tourmaster Series 4 Motorcycle Jacket
Do you ride every day, or every weekend, no matter the weather conditions? Cold, wind, rain and snow can all put a damper on things. Eliminate those nuisances by wearing the Tourmaster Series 4 Motorcycle Jacket. Sure, you cannot change the weather, but you can change how your clothing performs when it is too hot or too cold out. The Tourmaster has an outer shell made from tough, durable Carbolex 600 fabric. There are 9 pockets. 4 on the front (2 on each side,) 1 on the left sleeve, and 4 inside. The insulated liner is removable. The jacket has a rain guard barrier, so you are going to stay dry. And if the day turns humid or warm, open the pipeline vents on the chest, underarms and the back. Still not comfortable? Deploy the hidden hood rolled into the collar, and protect your face and neck. The Tourmaster comes in 4 different colors with reflective sections for safety.
