Abrasion Resistant - Tests by the U.S. DOT National Safety Administration involving motorcycle falls have shown leather to be more abrasion resistant than any other known clothing material, including Kevlar. The random nature of leather fibers gives them an inherent strength that can not be reproduced in laboratory. (Study available upon request)

Windproof - Leather pores contract in cold wind, providing an effective barrier to inclement weather while holding in body heat.

Breathable - Thanks to its natural pores, leather remains supple and strong throughout its service life.

Durable - Leather outlasts almost any other type of clothing, especially under heavy use. All Taylor''s Leatherwear police garments are guaranteed for 5 years.

Cost Effective - Over the life of a garment, virtually no other material offers the cost efficiency of leather. Assuming a conservative 10 year life at $350-$400 per jacket, the annual cost of $35-$40 per year is far below that of any synthetic or plastic alternative.

Professional - Leather jackets promote a professional and authoritative image. The NYPD has documented a reduction in attacks on officers wearing leather over those wearing cloth.
