    There’s something timeless and appealing about a classic motorcycle jacket, but to make the grade as the real deal and not just a fashion statement, a good outer layer should also save your skin, too. Whether you are a weekend warrior or use a chopper as your everyday transport, a motorcycle jacket needs several important features. It should be made from a rugged material — leather looks the best, but many manmade fabrics have superior abrasion resistance. Some designs have extra armor over the elbows, or removable padding. Depending on the climate, you may want insulation or ventilation and breathability as well as waterproof and windproof fabrics. Reflective strips are a good safety option, too. Whichever you choose, make sure the fit is good and allows for free movement, good visibility and comfort.
