Choosing the Right Biker Jackets

February 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 151

Riding bikes can be a lot of fun. For most, it gives a sense of freedom and adventure aside from being a great way of traveling. However, as the number of bikers escalated in the past, so has the number of related accidents and road injury cases. There are a lot of factors that bikers need to consider and face every time they hit the roads. Some of these include weather and temperature. It is surely a big distraction when you have rain water trickling down your face or soaking your clothes wet. Strong winds also have their way of making bikers lose focus on the road. There are a lot of circumstances that can contribute to how a biker can lose concentration and engage himself in an untoward accident. However, these situations can be very well avoided if the biker wears proper protective clothing when going for a ride. Biker jackets are one of the most important pieces of protective clothing. With the large market of jackets today, customers are faced with a huge line-up of options. Read on to find out the points to consider in making your jacket selection.

One of the most important considerations to make is the material of the jackets. Although leather is the most common and popular material for jackets, non-leather jackets have also flourished in the recent years. These alternatives include the new mesh jackets. These are jackets whose material is considerably tougher than leather counterparts. Also, they allow the jacket to "breathe in", because the mesh is made up of fibers that allow for ventilation. There are also different variations of nylon material jackets.

Another thing to consider is the ventilation and temperature ratio, slightly in relation to the above-mentioned material of the biker jackets. One of the leading reasons why bikers refuse to wear protective clothing is because they feel uncomfortable especially during hot days or warm weather months. This has been addressed recently in the creation of mesh jackets and some jackets with "ventilation zippers", which are basically zippers that serve as entry for air to circulate through the jacket. The zippers are usually located in the armpit areas and other spots where heat is likely to accumulate.

Style is another point that more bikers consider. Unlike during the older times where riding apparel are always black, today, there are some jackets that come in all colors - white, red, green, blue, orange, and combinations of different colors. There's surely one to get the attention of every biker.

It is also important that your outdoor jacket contribute to your overall visibility on the road, especially during night time riding, in rainy weather and in low-light conditions. This will increase your visibility from a distance and helps lower the risk of getting into a crash due to other motorists not being able to see you approaching. Bright colored and designed jackets are best when it comes to visibility during a ride on the road in whatever situation.
