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.

Joe Rocket makes nice cheap made in China products.
For few extra $ you can buy products made in America that make Joe Rocket look like crap, which include lifetime warranty :dthumb: You get what you pay for in life ;)
+1 on the Vansons. Don't have any since mine are Fieldsheer (which I would NOT recommend), but I have worn some and was really Wow'd. But, the price on JR is good for a low-cost solution.....
