First and foremost summer jackets protect your skin in case of an accident. The skin on your body is your largest organ, and the most subjected to the outside world. Your skin helps regulate your temperature, get too hot and capillaries near the skins surface enlarge to cool the blood, too cold and they shrink to keep the blood centralized to your core. This is where a jacket comes in, it helps the skin work more efficiently when riding a motorcycle. Let's face it, skin wasn't designed for high speeds or riding on motorcycles.http://rideapart.com/2014/05/summer...
