Good morning everyone, Now that I have your attention lol.. This came to my mind last night.. Has anyone ever seen, done, read, viewed any research on the quality or lack there of.... of some of the riding gear that we as riders purchase & wear. Granted, leather is the best & safest and sky is the limit in regards to what you can spend. But dealers are selling these synthetic jackets... some look like fish nets / perforarted jackets to allow air through.. one fall of a bike... and will they help you ?. Just thinking safety. When you look at the European manufacturers, especially the Italians.. its leather & only leather. Tks for your time.
