However, bikers have a priority over 'looking cool'. Most riders main objective when wearing leathers is to protect from the many road hazards. A motorcyclist has little to no protection from crashes and slides except for their riding gear choices.

When choosing a jacket you should ask yourself a few questions like: How often will I wear this jacket and what type of weather do I ride in most of the time. Depending on if you are using your bike to commute or just for nice days on weekend your choice will be affected. Also if you are in a tropical climate you want to find jackets that offer the best ventilation so you don't melt in that 100+ degree weather you might be in.

 The better quality biker jackets tend to offer the best protection to the rider and therefore should be a logical choice when making a buying decision. Kevlar is a material used in many motorcycle accessories, including leather jackets. Kevlar will keep objects from penetrating the motorcyclists body. Kevlar will not stop bruising, however a bruise is a small price to pay instead of a serious puncture wound from trees, and or rocks, for an example. Kevlar will not stop a bullet from penetrating a motorcycle jacket. Kevlar will stop bullets from penetrating the jacket when it is made in a different way, such as a bullet-proof policeman's jacket. So don't try that at home. Kevlar in leather motorcycle jackets tends to be used on the interior and in the form of thread for the seams.

A motorcycle jacket normally has many more inside and outside pockets then a regular leather jacket.  The many pockets can help you with carrying all your valuables since bikes don't have trunks nor ample storage space.

Motorcyclists in many countries are now being required to wear an array of personal protective equipment. For details check with your local DMV. In the USA we tend to have helmet laws which vary from state to state.
