Choosing Your Motorcycle Jacket
If the old long leather jacket was the standard garment biker, the past several years an explosion of synthetic textile equipment. The low cost of nylon over leather was determinative. Sturdy, well tensile strength, lightweight, nylon used alone however is not very suitable because it does not protect from ambient moisture, has a relatively low thermal protection and, if dropped, it offers little abrasion resistance. But, and this is good for the biker, many other fibers have addressed some problems: the tight fibers (Gore-Tex, Reissa, Hipora, Sympatex) form a barrier to rain, others allow for remove perspiration (Tactel, 3XDry, Coolmax) and finally liners bring some heat (Polartec, Polarguard, Primaloft, 3M Thinsulate). And to protect the rider, the base Nylon is often reinforced by a very dense nylon and much more resistant Cordura. We sometimes find reinforcements in Kevlar or Keprotec or even leather pieces sewn in strategic locations.
Note that today, all jackets and windbreakers are all fitted with removable covers (semi-rigid hulls) and ridges generally shockproof foam. But be careful, sometimes these marketing arguments and we may not know the actual effectiveness of its protections within perform a test or even wallowing!
Some did respond to CE (European Community) and therefore have a real capacity to absorb shocks. Other (and is often the case of the ridges), are mere foam plates which tear very easily. But it goes in the right direction, it is clear that real efforts have been made by manufacturers.
However, nylon is not leather when buying a winter jacket. The latter is a second skin, which is not the case of synthetic textiles that, in case of fall, have a crippling defect: they melt. If the lining of the garment itself is nylon (or woven into the fibers of the same families as polyamides), heat will also notify the lining and, in the worst cases, the skin!
