Motorcycle Touring Leathers Guide
Motorcycle touring leathers
Going on a ride out? A cross country tour? Stay safe and comfortable with Motorcycle touring leathers from GetGeared. Touring leathers could be considered more technical than other motorcycle clothing as they are usually worn for longer durations and have to be high quality in lots of different ways, not mainly protective, like racing leathers, not light-weight like motocross clothes. Touring leathers need to be able to protect you from the weather and climate, as well as the rough road surfaces in the event of a fall. They need to provide maximum comfort in the hot and the cold.
The best motorcycle touring leathers will have ways to keep you warm, dry, cool, safe and comfortable by incorporating removable thermal liners and breathable waterproof liners. Even when it is cooler outside, if your clothing isn’t breathable, you will sweat and the moisture created will sap the heat from your body. A mix of leather and highly abrasion resistant textile as well as CE certified armour at the knees, elbows and shoulders, ensure you are well protected while you are out on the rough desert roads or rocky paths. Motorcycle touring jackets have plenty of pocket space for the things you don’t want to keep digging around in your panniers for like passports, maps and travel documents.
