Types of motorcycle jackets
Jackets with built-in airbags offer maximum protection against falls thanks to the high-tech airbag system that cushions impacts. We recommend checking the compatibility of airbags and jacket to avoid any incompatibility that might interfere with the correct functioning of the airbag. The pioneering brands in this technology are Dainese with the Smart Jacket and Alpinestars with Tech-Air technology.
Jackets with removable thermal lining are ideal for winter use. This type of lining has a specific technical material to insulates against the cold and wind such as Polartech(R) or Thermolite(R) so you say warm and comfortable even on cold days. Thermal linings are usually removable, which is why they offer us some versatility to easily adapt to different weather conditions.
Leather jackets are classic gear for bikers, aviators and rockers among others. The biker leather jacket is eternal, because leather offers maximum protection against cold and abrasion so they are normally used for racing but may be worn almost any time. They are snug fitting and comfortable once worn in. Some brands offer classic styles such as Cafe Racer and Vintage, By City, Fuel and Segura.
Waterproof jackets are very practical for touring or city use in the rain. The most outstanding membranes such as Dainese's DryStar or the famous Gore-Tex have a hi-tech membrane that prevents the entry of water into the jacket while allowing perspiration to escape, thus keeping the rider cool and dry. This protection barrier against the adverse weather may be laminated in the jacket or may be detachable with zippers and hooks, so riders can adapt to the weather conditions.

What's the best jacket for each season?

The jackets differ in characteristics according to the type of season they are for, there are ventilated jackets that are great for summer, jackets with thermal lining for the winter and finally more versatile jackets that can be worn throughout the year.
Winter jackets are recommended to have some kind of protection against cold and wind such as a thermal lining to prevent the entry of cold and prevent it from getting in while we are driving. The waterproof membrane is another element that protects from rain in the winter season.
Summer jackets offer ventilation with their different ventilation systems that can use ventilated mesh panels or zippered entrances and extractors that will allow a correct air flow through the jacket, always keeping your body cool and dry. These jackets are great for summer or in warm areas, as they allow greater comfort while driving.
The 4-season or all-year-round jackets are very versatile and normally offer some kind of thermal lining, waterproof membrane and ventilation system to easily adapt to any weather situation during the year. They are very adaptable and offer comfort either in winter or in summer.
What kind of protections do jackets include?
The jackets have several protections so that in case of impact we are safe. Each manufacturer can offer several types of protections depending on the material, lightness and areas in which they can be placed. The protections are placed shoulders and elbows, back and chest.
Shoulders and elbows: They are the quintessential basic protections in jackets, these protections are placed on the shoulders and elbows area to protect the weakest points in case of impact along the helmet, knees and gloves.
Back: This protection protects the upper/middle area of the back against impacts. Many models of jackets are ready for this type of back protector.
Chest: They are placed in the chest area and, in combination with the rest of the protections, allow a complete coverage of the torso area.

Questions about bike jackets
How frequently do I have to renew my jacket?
Bike jackets are made of high quality and resistant technical fabrics which offer a long durability, but they still suffer from continued use. The exposure to sun, rain and contact progressively deteriorates the fabrics and properties of the jacket, which in the long run loses its usability. Continuous washing and the use of the washing machine in particular, cause greater deterioration in the long term. On the other hand, leather jackets must have a special treatment, and require the use of specific products since their material needs certain care, such as hydrating them from time to time to keep the properties of leather for much longer and prevent cracking.
How to choose the right bike jacket size?
To choose the right size jacket, we must enter the product card of the particular jacket and check its size guide. The most important thing is that the jacket is comfortable for us. The first measure to consider is the circumference of the torso. Ideally, we should measure ourselves without clothes or with a t-shirt that is not very thick, without squeezing and, above all, in a natural position. When measuring the sleeve, it is preferable to bend the arm slightly. In this way we will avoid that, once we have chosen the jacket, we find out that the sleeve is too short. We also need to measure the distance between the wrist and the shoulder. Once we have the measurements and we try on the jacket, the seam should not reach the shoulder, but should go a few centimeters lower. If one of our measurements is between two sizes and we do not know which one to choose, it is always preferable to choose the largest size.
A good sign of having chosen the right jacket size is if that the position of the shoulder and elbow protections are located where they should be. Each type of jacket requires a different fit. A sports jacket is not the same as a touring jacket.
