Protective qualities to look out for in Black leather jackets

Tuesday, April 9, 2019 posted by BestLeatherItems

Bike rides require speed and lots of maneuvers. Thus, it is important that you (the rider) are protected. Apart from the protective gear, you should wear your Black leather jackets for some protection from impact. The first protective quality to look out for in Black leather jackets is the leather. Leather provides protection from a fall. Pick jackets made from cow, kangaroo, and buffalo hide over lamb or sheepskin. Jackets made from cow hides with a minimum thickness of 1.1mm provides enough abrasion-resistance.

Meanwhile, Kangaroo hides are thinner but have superior strength. It is important that you avoid Black leather jackets made from fashion leather. These jackets are made from lamb or sheepskin. They offer very little protection in a fall. They are great for other purposes like an everyday jacket, but not a bike ride.

The next protective quality to look out for is protective lining. The protective lining is also one quality that gives motorcycle jackets abrasion-resistance. Choose jackets made from denim, soft-shell or cotton materials. They are made in varying levels of thickness, which translates to varied abrasion-resistance levels. You should also consider the quality of the zip and the stitching on the seams, and internal pocket.
