The fiber technologies used in textile motorcycle jacket manufacturing continue to leap forward as textile jacket materials are upgraded. Many modern textile motorcycle jackets include patented protective materials in the outer and inner layers. In terms of protection, most textile motorcycle jackets offer high puncture resistance while abrasion resistance and tear strength can vary widely since textile jackets are made from many different high-tech synthetic materials. Some mid- to higher-end textile motorcycle jackets are made from an outer Cordura nylon shell which protects with a very high abrasion resistance. Other textile motorcycle jacket designs are based on ballistic nylon, another tough synthetic nylon fabric, but which is not as puncture-resistant as Kevlar. And many innovative textile motorcycle jackets also incorporate leather materials in the mix. Familiarize yourself with the abrasion- and puncture-resistance of popular jacket materials and hone in on the styles that will best suit your riding.
