When deciding what to wear while riding my motorcycle, comfort came in at a close second to safety. The Joe Rocket Ballistic jacket is lightweight and functional. It's made from a breathable mesh but has plenty of padding throughout to prevent road rash. Thankfully, I haven't had to test the theory out, but it's light enough to wear in warm weather while still offering the protection I need. The jackets come in a variety of colors and mine is read to match my bike. It fits well and the zippers and snaps all stay out of the way so I don't get snagged on anything while I'm riding. It has a couple of small pockets for you to place your wallet or keys or gloves in. I definitely recommend the Joe Rocket Ballistic jacket as part of your motorcycle riding protection.
