Textile vs Leather

I'm sick of the zipper breaking on my Joe Rocket Blaster.

My other jacket is a Joe Rocket Phoenix, which I like, but it's mesh. Unless there's something I don't know, that thing isn't going to protect much but my back, elbows, and shoulders in a wreck. As in, it seems that mesh would shred to pieces in a slide. . ?

So, I may be looking for a new jacket and was thinking about textile. What are the pros and cons of both?

Also, I'd like to have a jacket that I could eventually zip pants to b/c I can't stand my Alpine Stars suit.

Rossi wears Dainese and AGV Helmets. kangaroo has came down in price the last few years and you can now get high quality suit for around 1500 bucks.
Spidi, Pretty good suit. It has been hell. My next one will be Spidi Roo.
