Motorcycle Cruiser Jackets
If you are heading out for a ride on your classic cruiser bike you need a jacket to keep you protected as well as looking stylish. Here on eBay, there is a wide range of motorcycle cruiser jackets to keep you safe yet fashionable when out riding.
Cruiser jackets are synonymous with an image of a laid-back motorcyclist who’s built their own custom bike and loves nothing more than cruising along on the open road. Team with a white t-shirt, jeans and black leather boots à la James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause.
Cruiser jackets are loose fitting, yet structured which means you can always recognise the cut, shape and style of this classic motorcycle garment. Perhaps the most style conscious of all the motorcycle jacket types, fans of the classic cruiser look can choose from used styles including vintage leather biker jackets.
Traditionally cruiser jackets are made from leather, however, you can also find lightweight versions in breathable fabrics such as GORE-TEX, cotton and polyester. Take your pick of cruiser jacket made by iconic manufacturers including RST, Alpinestars, Merlin, OSX, Rev’it, Spada and Harley-Davidson.
With a wide variety of jackets to choose from in men’s, women’s, unisex and children’s cuts you’re sure to find the perfect cruiser jacket to suit your style. Cruiser jackets are available in classic blacks and browns; however, the more daring may want to try greys, reds, blues and whites.
Cruiser safety features
Cruiser jackets are designed for cruising and cruising alone, which means slower speeds and a reduced risk of serious injury. For that reason, cruiser jackets don’t tend to include built-in armour, however, you may find a few newer styles that give you the option to add removable armour and are waterproof.
If you’re safety conscious and would prefer a little more protection, it’s possible to buy armour that can be worn separately, underneath your jacket.
