I have a textle, its really nice in the summer, keeps you cool, and i have crashed with it and it saved me some loosing my skin and it felt very padded when i hit the ground. To my surpise the jacket really wasnt damaged. I am looking for a full leather suit tho, if anyone has any opinons on them let me know.
i have an icon hoolagain textile and its sweet, cheap and it came with winter lining. I feel with the pads and all that it will protect me if and when i fall. Its actually a pretty beefy jacket for $120 although my dealer wanted $250 for the same jacket...
I prefer having no collar as such on my jackets so that i can get full movement of my neck without the collar cutting into it or restricting it, as for bugs and shit you can wear a neck guard which still allows movement and protects its exposure to the elements.
My personal choice of preference is Dainese Leather range, any and all of them are great safety items and cool styles.
