Top 10 Motorcycle Jackets for Women

Top 10 Motorcycle Jackets for Women 

If you’ve managed to find this top 10 then you are in the search of a good ladies motorcycle jacket right? If not then this may be the wrong article for you. However we have put together a list of the top-rated motorcycle jackets we could find in different price ranges which should hopefully make your decisions a bit easier.

It is extremely important to protect yourself at all times to the maximum level when riding a motorcycle. You will be exposed with no protection if you fall off and if you were to scrape bare skin at 50mph coming off the machine, you are defiantly going to do some substantial damage. This is why the first item we would suggest would be to invest in a good motorcycle jacket.

As a female motorcyclist shopping for a jacket can be difficult when the motorcycle world is very male-dominated. Majority of the motorcycle jackets out there are usually classed as Unisex however you may prefer to go for one specially designed for a woman. When buying a jacket bear in mind it needs to be fitted, so going for a unisex design may not give you the most comfortable fit in the chest area compared to one designed for ladies. Then you have to decide what material you are going to go for –textile or leather? To make it a bit easier we have picked our top 5 for each, in difference price ranges, but it is completely down to preference.

Leather Jackets

Now the classic leather biker jacket has been a staple for years and is an avid piece of clobber to own but how durable actually are they? The leather jacket, providing that is a specifically made motorcycle jacket (from cowhide leather) and not a fashion item, is potentially one of the most abrasive materials meaning if you fall off it’s going to be the best bet of protecting you from road rash and impact.

When looking for a leather jacket you’ll want it to be tight fitting but still comfortable as it is meant to be like a second skin. When it comes down to style a biker jacket does look cool and most definitely completes the biker image but it can be hard to clean and will probably have to be cleaned professionally.  They will do well in protecting you during your rides from debris, bugs and the wind. A down side to buying a leather jacket is they are most often not waterproof so if you get caught in a downpour and forget your waterproof you’re more than likely to get soaked.

Textile Jackets

Textile jackets are another style of protection you can opt for that have different properties to leather and may be better suited to you. The textile jackets are usually made of man-made fabrics like Cordura or Kevlar that will wear down in the event of a crash much better than your bare skin but maybe not as well as leather.

Dependent on your use of the bike the textile jacket may be the better option as they can be made to be water resistant yet also due to the fabric can be more breathable during warmer weather. A fair few also come with removable under-layers and of course in the colder months you can always layer up! Textile jackets can also be more comfortable to wear than leather so if you are planning a long trip comfort may want to take care and the textile fabric will often model to fit you, whereas you have to fit tightly but comfortable in leather.
