Dainese jacket

A motorcycle jacket should really only have three real objectives – to keep you warm, keep you dry and to keep you protected. Only when all those boxes have been ticked should how the jacket looks come into the equation.

But ticking all those boxes can turn buying a new bike jacket into an expensive exercise, and scrimping on one of the three objectives above could leave you in trouble should you have an incident.

With that in mind, these are the best jackets we can find on Amazon today, covering premium, mid-range and budget options.
