If there’s a piece of apparel most associated with motorcycling, it’s undoubtedly the leather motorcycle jacket. As riders, we associate leather jackets as part of our uniform, but even non-riders search the bins for cowhide say, when they want to dress up for Halloween. No matter what you ride, the leather jacket is versatile enough to look at home nearly anywhere, and on nearly anything. The beauty of leather motorcycle jackets is they will likely never go out of style, and the more you wear them, the more comfortable they will feel – there’s just something about leather that other materials can’t match. Leather motorcycle jackets are bountiful and ubiquitous, with seemingly endless options to choose from. It would be impossible for us to feature every single jacket out there, so here, we’ve gathered a small sampling of what the market has to offer, listed in alphabetical order.
Alpinestars Dyno V2 Leather Jacket – $530
The original Dyno jacket from Alpinestars was one of the first leather jackets the company ever made. It became a best seller, too, so after a long wait Alpinestars has finally released an updated, version 2.0 of the Dyno. A fully CE-approved jacket, the new Dyno is made from supple leather with stretch panels across the chest for greater mobility. Two exterior pockets are paired with a waterproof internal pocket, and snaps at the waist help make for a better fit. CE certified Bio-Armor sits in the shoulder and elbow pockets for impact protection. A modern take on a vintage-ish jacket, the Dyno is classically understated but still has plenty of pop.
