Check Our Top-5 Picks for Best-Selling Models of Classic Leather Jackets

What are your main criteria when choosing the riding jacket? Is it protection, style, or comfort? How about all of the above? We made this list of our top-selling leather jackets from different brands.

For those who are looking for a simple black or brown leather jacket at an affordable price and featuring a cafe racer style, the Gasser by Highway 21 will fill the bill. The design of this jacket was inspired by the gear usually worn by early track, dirt, and road circuit racers of the pure adrenaline era. Impact and abrasion protection were almost non-existent back then, but this vintage jacket will have you covered with removable CE approved armor and protect you on the road.

Highway 21® - Gasser Men's Jacket
https://www.motorcycleid.com/highway...266750372.html

Features:
Premium 100% genuine leather
Removable Hydraguard thermal liner
Removable CE armor in shoulder and elbows
Perforated expandable side panels
Napoleon pocket and device pocket
Concealed carry pocket
Snap lock button collar
Black reflective piping
Intake and exhaust vents

* * *

Another great example of retro cafe style jacket – the Top Performer by First Manufacturing – one of the most versatile jackets in its category from the riding temperature standpoint. It features a center zipper, banded collar with a snap-back feature, pockets for optional CE-rated armor on the elbows and shoulders, foam back pad, intake and exhaust vents, a darkened reflective stripe on the lower back, and more. Mesh liner helps wick perspiration moisture during the summer months. Gussets and grommets on the back of the shoulders give the rider an extra range of motion when reaching for the handlebars.

Features:
Two conceal-carry pockets with bullet snaps & tapered holsters
Padded elbow detail
Zippered underarm vents
Zippered sleeves with gussets
Snap side tabs
Perforated action back
Insulated zip-out thermal liner

One of the safest leather jackets on the market – the Roadster Series by Helite features a revolutionary Helite airbag technology designed to protect the rider’s back, neck, and core in case of a crash. The rigid support offered by the bag significantly reduces the risk of spinal and brain injuries. The airbag is integrated into the liner and gets inflated in milliseconds from the CO2 cartridge triggered by a tether attached to the bike’s frame. Besides that, the jacket is made from premium-quality cowhide leather with decent ventilation thanks to mesh side panels also serving as expansion panels for airbag inflation.

Helite® - Roadster Series Men's Leather Airbag Jacket
https://www.motorcycleid.com/helite/...209896079.html

Features:
Integrated airbag that absorbs shocks and prevents hyper-extension, whiplash, etc.
The Turtle Technology improves energy absorption especially of sharp or intruding objects
The airbag is supplied with one lanyard and one cartridge
CE approved shoulder and elbow armor + SAS-TEC Level 2 back protector create “Turtle Effect”
Interior and exterior pockets
Neoprene collar, with easy Hook and Loop Fastener adjustment
Detachable fully-sleeved thermal liner (100% Polyester)
Stretch leather on the sides for a perfect tight fit

* * *

The Classic ‘92 jacket by Joe Rocket is one of the most popular options for those riders who prefer relaxed, casual fit with subtle single topstitching creating clean, classic lines. This apparel is made from premium 1.2mm uncorrected drum dyed cowhide and offers great abrasion protection. Black and Brown leather variants are available. For improved impact protection, there are pockets for optional armor pads at the shoulders, elbows, and back. Joe Rocket keeps riders safe and comfortable since its inception in 1992, hence the name of this classic line of jackets.

Joe Rocket® - Classic '92 Leather Men's Jacket
https://www.motorcycleid.com/joe-roc...966110914.html

Features:
Top stitched 1.0 to 1.2mm drum dyed cowhide

Zip-in quilted full sleeve liner
2 inside utility pockets
4 outside pockets
Adjustable neoprene-lined mandarin collar
Adjustable waist and cuffs
1.5" Storm flap at main zipper

The Cutthroat Men's Jacket by Black Brand® is one of the best options for cruisers who prefer to ride without armor. It is made from high-quality top-grain leather which is thick enough to offer great abrasion protection and features a stylish, classic design with slim shoulders and flat back. The jacket has a rolled collar, snap-out quilted liner and multiple functional vents making it an all-season jacket. If it is too cold outside, be sure to wear a sweater or hoodie underneath. Zippers on the sleeves ensure a comfortable fit and additional venting in hot weather.

"Joe Rocket keeps riders safe and comfortable since it's inception in 1992"

Got any crashed jackets to support that? I've seen one that would certainly suggest otherwise. And now we see that you joined this forum simply to promote your business. Not cool mate.

PS....motorcycle safety apparel manufacturers/retailers are about to get a big shake up courtesy of this Australian initiative (hooray, one thing we beat the Kiwis to):

You can crush anything, I guess... It simply depends on the force of impact.

I represent a supporting vendor. I thought that's what vendors usually do.

Sure. But I'm talking about a Joe Rocket jacket ripped to shreds from sliding along the ride at 35mph. It would be no orphan either. The only real test of gear is where the rubber meets the road (literally). Most are failing this basic requirement.

Meh. It's one thing go advertise your wares, another to make unsubstantiated claims about it. The forum rules need to change.

PS...in my original post I said "crashed" jackets not "crushed". Looking at jackets involved in actual crashes is the best way of assessing their worth. Testing them in a lab (eg MotoCAP) is second best. Listening to words from the supplier is last.

I have to agree with you. But..... He's a "paying vendor supporting this site" so if that's what the owners are allowing than who am I to question him? On the other hand, if his claims are wild-assed and over the top I feel the readers will put him in his place quickly. Bottom line, I don't buy from people that solicit me whether it be at my front door, phone, or internet so he's just wasting his time.
