Motorcycle jackets are part of personal protective equipment used by motorcyclists throughout the world. Motorcycle jackets used by motorcyclists are usually made of either leather, or other durable man made materials such as Kevlar. Most jackets are heavily padded in the shoulder, elbow and spine regions. The jackets are styled to protect from impact from either ground or hard materials, however jackets also help by limiting gravel rash. If you do have a crash, severe gravel rash can significantly increase recovery time.
While personal protective equipment other than a helmet is not by law an essential item in Australia, the wearing of the jacket along with other personal protective equipment is highly recommended. Use our online sizing guide to get the best motorcycle jacket size for you.
“Dress for the crash,” is a saying often heard in motorcycle training, yet far too many riders cruise the streets in their thongs, board shorts and t-shirt. Even if you’re just popping down to the shops for a loaf of bread, throw a leather motorcycle jacket on, you never know when a car will pull out in front of you! Its important to have a few other motorcycle accessories ready to do, such a boots and some throw over long riding pants.
The perfect jacket should fit the body tightly but still allow free movement of the arms at least raising the hand above the shoulder. The snug fit provides support if a crash does occur and can help keep the joints in place during impact. Generally the more expensive motorcycle jackets provide a snug fit and free movement.
