Five Stylish and Protective Motorcycle Jackets for Fall and Winter

Jackets to keep you warm and protected through the colder riding season

Whether you have full coverage on a large touring bike—or you’re breaking that cold wind with your face and body—you want to be comfortable on your motorcycle without looking like a dork off it. This winter, deck yourself out with some stylishly warm and protective gear.

Winter jackets should be insulated and waterproof, while still possessing all of the qualities of a good, normal motorcycle jacket. Fabric that looks like denim but sheds water and lighter, thinner insulating layers have evolved into slimmer, better looking winter gear than we’ve ever had before.

Here are a few garments we’re pulling out of the closets this fall and winter to make sure we’re cosy and warm on the ride!
