A JACKET WITH SAFETY AND STYLE
The Helite Leather Airbag Jacket is the motorcycle jacket that has it all. This full-grain cowhide jacket is equipped with Helite's revolutionary airbag technology to take the impact out of crashing. When activated, the airbag offers rigid support for the head and neck to reduce the risk of a traumatic brain injury. The head and spine will stay fixed in a natural upright position to reduce whiplash injuries. The airbag itself is expertly integrated into the jacket to create a streamline look. For comfort, the jacket features a soft collar neck, adjustable waist circumference, and good airflow because of the mesh side panels. The Helite Leather Airbag Jacket is perfect for those safety conscious riders with a passion for fashion and style.

I love this jacket! It appears to be very well made with heavy duty premium leather. It looks great. It smells great! And best of all, it could potentially save you from serious injury.
The jacket comes with a removable liner for winter riding. With the liner removed, the jacket is surprisingly well ventilated, keeping me reasonably cool up to about 80 degrees. Above that you’ll need something better suited for summer temps. The jacket does run a bit small, so order one size up from what you’d normally wear. I’m 5’10” 195 lbs and the XL fits perfectly.
If you want to wear an airbag without looking like you’re wearing an airbag, this is definitely the way to go.
You can't put a price on your life when you're riding, and this jacket is certainly marketed as a safety device. I have not used the airbag feature, but the elbow/shoulder/back pads are more protective than the ones on my other jacket anyway! The airbag idea of buckling yourself to your bike becomes second nature after a couple weeks, and the jacket is rather comfortable. It has a really warm liner which I haven't tried out as the weather is too warm. This jacket does not offer vents, but it has not been an issue in 80-ish degree weather so far. I've been impressed with the amount of zippered storage given all the devices in this jacket. So far, very worth the money on the quality of leather and features that I have used; hopefully never have to use the airbag.
