    Default Leather suits vs kevlar suits

    hey guys, i was looking on the NJK website thinking about getting one and i noticed that it said your suit can be made out of leather or kevlar. Ive only ever seen people wear leather but ive never heard about kevlar being a possibility. What are the advantages of both. (ie speed, protection, durability, price, temperature wise, etc.)
    thanks so much
    -Max

    leather lasts, kevlar (at least his blend) stretches.

    k-rimes suit is kevlar almost everywhere now.

    I know two people that bought full kevlar suits, both of them ripped them open after 2 falls. This was also a few years ago so maybe things have improved since then but most motorcycle guys I talk to say there is no replacement for leather.

    is there any kevlar leather blend to get the stretchyness of kevlar but get the durability of leather?
