The 10 Best Mesh Motorcycle Jackets

This wiki has been updated 23 times since it was first published in January of 2019. There's nothing cooler than riding a motorcycle -- except for the bulky protective gear that makes you sweat in hot weather. If you only have a heavy leather jacket, you should think about also picking up a mesh option. They let more air through, keeping you refreshed no matter what the thermometer reads. Many also have removable liners, so you'll be ready for any conditions. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 25, 2019:

Before making a purchase, users should decide whether they want this jacket to be their primary choice for year-round wear, or just one of several coats that they switch out as circumstances dictate. If the former, then finding one with a heavy removable liner is a must, as many of the options on the list aren't suitable for winter wear. That's less important if this is just one of many jackets you own, in which case you can find one that lets in the most air (and looks the best, naturally).
