Jackets made for hot weather

 

As we go deeper into summer, the temptation to go riding in just jeans and a t-shirt rises along with the temperature. But as the old adage goes: “Dress for the fall, not for the ride.” And while it’s in your best interest to keep your skin off the pavement, dressing for the elements is important too. If temps are in the upper 80s and outside humidity is reaching Turkish-bath levels, keeping layers to a minimum should still be on the top of your mind. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on safety (or style for, that matter).

Leather jackets, regardless of the number of vents and the amount of perforation, will always be the slightly heavier option, but they tend to have the most style. Synthetic textile jackets tend to be the exact opposite, running much lighter in weight but sporting a technical look akin to SWAT team garb. So we gathered seven of our favorite motorcycle jackets that feature steady airflow, proper protection and good looks to boot. No matter which look you’re going for, it these jackets will keep you cool.
