Mens Motorcycle Textile Jackets
Textile jackets come in a wide variety of styles. From shorter sporty styles, longer touring jackets, hoodies, and shirts, JTS really has everything you could want and more! In our own JTS brand we manufacture all of these styles to suit everyone’s unique individual look.
Motorcycle textile jackets are very versatile. Durable Nylon/Cordura fabric is typically used for the outer shell, which provides very good abrasion resistance. Most textile motorcycle jackets incorporate a waterproof, breathable membrane between the outer shell and inner mesh lining. These membranes perform the job of keeping you dry if you ride in the rain. Reissa and Hippora are the most common membranes in use. Alpinestars have a membrane of their own called Drystar®. The best performing membrane in terms of breathability is widely accepted to be Gore-Tex®, which tends to be reflected in the overall higher price of textile jackets with this membrane. You might also want to consider laminated options. This is where the waterproof membrane is sealed to the outer material so that water will not penetrate through and make it sodden. A great option if you ride everyday regardless of the weather.
All motorcycle jackets are fitted with a level 1 or level 2 body armour in the shoulders and elbows. Some come with a level 1 or level 2 back protector or at the very least, a pocket to fit one. Some back protector pockets will only fit certain types of back protectors through. If you are unsure which to go for, we are always happy to assist.
Most of our textile jackets also feature a removable quilted thermal liner, which is very handy for winter riding. With its thermal liner unzipped and removed, a textile jacket can also be quite well suited to summer use. Other things that help in warm riding conditions are zip vents or areas of external mesh fabric that allow good airflow. Majority of textile motorcycle jackets feature several useful pockets and the more pockets and vents it has, the better suited it will be to long distance touring or commuting.
