Textile on leather

Anyone here wear textile jacket with leather trousers?
Since you can’t really get a full waterproof leather jacket i have little choice but ti get a textile but not sure if that mixture will look odd.

That’s my normal setup. Textile airbag jacket and leather trousers. I don’t mind being a bit odd :slight_smile:

Alright sweet sounds like i will have a new jacket this week! Any photos? :blush:

Thanks everyone!

I guess it depends what you need out of it. I’m an all year round rider so go with textile for both jacket and trousers. I think most textile stuff is pretty good in an off, my RST Paragon 4 stuff survived very well in an off. Plus they are water proof with removable liners so could be stripped down or up depending on weather.

Be interested to know what kit people wear all year round, does one piece of kit do everything?

I have got bike jeans and an AMR shirt for really hot days, not that there are many in the UK.

Leathers if it’s warmish. If it’s cold, I’m down with the kids and have my hoodie on over the leathers. And if it’s wet… I’m in my pj’s as no way am I going out in that.

Textile jacket and leather trews is no odder that riding jeans and leather jacket. If your gear offers the protection that you need and fits you well, who gives a stuff about what the convention says about mixing materials?
