decided to buy a joe rocket sonic 2.0.
now i need to decide on perferted or not.
i live in PA so weather is a factor.
any opinions on which protects better?
it seems like the perf is the leather one with holes in it, it doesn't seem like any weaker material.

Perforated jackets will tear easier in the event of a fall simply because they have a lower tensile strength due to the holes. The difference in protection will probly not be to great but it is there.

I have a Joe Rocket perforated leather jacket and I canít imagine it would make to much of a difference in protection. The one thing I do like about it is it lets ton of air in, which will be nice on the summer days, but it's colder than a witches titty on cold mornings!
