I'd recommend textile. Many of them come with rain liners, and most have some simple armor. I'd add back armor (I've actually gotten to like mine so much I wear it on any kind of longer ride). Leather is a sentimental favorite, but the textiles are here to stay. At least for the street.
Now for the track... nothing but leather and hard armor.
