Im thinking about buying a joe rocket phoenix 5.0 poly/mesh jacket. Im just on the edge about it because my brother tells me that mesh will melt if i layed my bike down. he says leather is the way to go. is mesh safe?
help please

It's usually good to look for a mesh blend. Also some don't like it but I suggest the inner armor just for protection. Joe rocket carries these as well as Shift.

You're fine with a mesh jacket and built in armor, which the jacket your looking to buy has.

Yes leather still offers the best protection but I've seen people go down in mesh jackets and the jacket held up fine. I'd rather see someone save money and get a mesh jacket and buy some gloves, boots, pants and other protective gear then buy a spendy jacket and just rock a jacket and helmet.
