Durabiliity of Tornado textile vs. leather
I'm trying to decide whether to get the REVIT Tornado or a leather jacket like Alpinestars Mert. I'm concerned about the durability of the textile compared to the leather in case of a crash. How does the textile in the Tornado compare (polyester 600D?) compare to leather in abrasion resistance? Also, how does the Tornado compare to the Turbine (Cordura 1000D and Superfabric)? Overall I'm just trying to get the safest jacket I can. I live in Austin TX and would like to get by with one jacket if possible for all seasons (usually it does not get below 50F).
I have the Turbine Jacket and I do not think it would be as tough as leather. However you would be very hot in the leather in Austin, TX. I would get the turbine for the better airflow, and I think the protection it provides against abrasion would still be sufficient.
