Hands On Women’s Motorcycle Clothing & Gear Reviews For 20+ Years.

Welcome to the wBW Women’s Motorcycle Clothing reviews page! As you’ve probably noticed, there aren’t a lot of sources for women’s motorcycle jackets, pants, gloves, boots and accessories out there! Sure, there are plenty of retailers where you can purchase “downsized” men’s clothing and styles; but why compromise, especially when it comes to clothing that has to fit correctly to protect you?

wBW has had a long history of amazing female team members who review products, motorcycles and women’s gear. It started when many of our female readers asked for a roundup of the best women’s motorcycle gear and we haven’t looked back. We’ve been lucky to have great partners too who are always willing to provide us leather motorcycle jackets, pants, boots, helmets and more. As always we’re dedicated to providing real reviews and real hands on experience with the products we test.

Women's Gear Reviews

America’s first motorcycle company has released their fall collection of men’s and women’s apparel just in time for the fall – and this year, they’ve got three sub-collections to choose from.  Having made a name for themselves in the 20th century in the flat-track scene and on the world-famous Bonneville Salt Flats, Indian Motorcycles today …

Raven Rova Falcon Pants The Raven Rova Falcon pants are a textile and leather hybrid that offers a fantastic combination of more unique features than I was expecting. I live in Phoenix, AZ, and I am ALWAYS on the lookout for gear that I believe will combine the airflow I want with the safety and …

Background Not that many years ago we were getting ready to go on our first extended motorcycle trip and I decided I needed to buy myself some dedicated motorcycle pants. Up to that point, I had been riding in heavy jeans, mostly because that’s all they had for women riders. I went down to my …

Overview Here in the heartland spring has sprung, the snow has melted, and it’s time to get the motorcycle out and ride! It’s also time to check out new gear and what better way to start than the gorgeous red leather Phoenix Jacket from Raven Rova. Background It wasn’t that many years ago that finding …

Riding Jeans with Style Jeans are probably the most popular clothing both on and off the motorcycle. However, regular denim does not provide adequate protection for motorcyclists. This can be shown using the Cambridge impact abrasion test. It entails dropping a sample of material from a height of 2 inches onto a 60 grit abrasion …

How to Shop for Motorcycle Gear Shopping for motorcycle gear is nothing like shopping for regular clothing. Why? We’ve learned to shop for clothing based on an abundance of choices. We almost always choose regular clothing based on what we want, not what we need. Motorcycle gear has specific functions beyond covering skin and looking …

When it comes to the Women’s Automag 2 jacket,  ICON Motosports claims, “We understand the core needs of the street-focused rider.” They aren’t lying. The jacket does many things and does them all well, which is a rare find for a price under $250. The Automag 2 doesn’t just perform well, it also looks the …

Vintage Aesthetic Gone Modern Throwback! The early 60s meets mid-80s or something like that. Belstaff meets Barbour meets M65 Field jacket. The MH1000 jacket from ICON 1000 is the definition of Vintage-inspired style paired with modern touches. Cordura denim lends itself to the rugged look, with black leather accents on the shoulders and arms reeling …

A Pleasant Suitprise Looking for the Right One I love trying out new gear and this was the first taste of riding suits for me with a long term hands-on test, so I will admit to being pretty excited. But as I looked at the website, my excitement began to wain as I discovered that …

I’m not one to shy away from that which is bold, so when ICON introduced the Overlord SB2 Wild Child, a full textile sport-specific jacket featuring turquoise/purple/magenta ombre with a zebra/ tiger stripe overlay… I was all in. For reference, I’m wearing an XL in the photos and am a US women’s size 10/12 dress. …

Due to the lack of motorcycle jackets made specifically for ladies, in the past, a selection was made mostly based on what came the closest to fitting properly. But with the huge influx in ladies on bikes, manufacturers have spent millions of dollars designing and creating motorcycle jackets and full lines of apparel that are …

With the Albertan riding season now coming to a close, it’s time for the review of this Cadence to go live. We’ve had the Cadence in our possession since May but decided to wait until cooler weather before publishing this review. That time came and, I have to say, I’m impressed with how the Cadence …

The Perfect Compromise of Style, Comfort and Function? If you’ve been following the webBikeWorld clothing reviews for the last year or so you will have noticed a major shift in motorcycle jackets. With the explosion of scrambler, café racer, and retro inspired bikes there has been a corresponding surge in matching retro and Urban style …

Sliders “Bella” Women’s Jeans Review The Sliders Bella  women’s riding jeans are protective, wear all day, decent-looking jeans. It’s sad but true that when it comes to motorcycle gear for women, the amount of choices available pale in comparison to plethora of gear available for men. In recent years this has improved a bit, but the …

Women’s Leather Motorcycle Jacket Motorcycle clothing manufacturers live in an ultra-competitive world.  They spend huge amounts of time and money trying to design products that have something just a little bit different and special to outsmart the competition.I’m sure there are many different types of statistical methods, surveys and focus groups that are used to try …

We have reviewed dozens and dozens of articles of women’s motorcycle gear over the years at wBW so we know a thing or two about which brands our editors love. We also see the analytics on the site too so we know which brands get the most views and attention from our readers. Between consumer interest, our editor’s opinions and generally who we think is really innovating in the women’s clothing space, here are the most popular brands at the moment.

Alpinestars Womens Clothing

Alpinestars makes technical, high performance protective gear for Motorcycle, Motocross, and Auto Racing and more recently for action sports like Adventure/Touring, Mountain Biking and Cycling.

It all started in 1963 when a leather craftsman by the name of Sante Mazzarolo began creating the first Alpinestars branded products. At that time a new sport called motocross was establishing itself.

Alpinestars makes a massive range of clothes from traditional leather motorcycle jackets to lightweight mesh motorcycle jackets and everything in between. Their lightweight mesh jackets have amazing venting and cooling for riders in warm weather while their leather jackets have that cool traditional look and sturdy build quality. We love the options Alpinestars offers for female riders and the investment they make in continuing to innovate.

Joe Rocket Womens Clothing

Joe Rocket Women's Clothing

Motorcycle gloves find the right balance between comfort, control and protection. It is one thing to have a glove that protects you but it is another to have a glove that protects you AND makes controlling your motorcycle easy. That’s where Joe Rocket excel.

The other area of excellence for Joe Rocket is affordability and price point and a great range of really great looking gear for women. We love their leather classic jackets the most, perfect for the female cafe racer in you. Joe Rocket women’s boots are also a highlight.

Klim Womens Motorcycle Clothing

Klim Motorcycle Jackets

Klim (pronounced “climb”) is a U.S based designer and manufacturer or cool snowmobile and motorcycle clothing using the same.

Klim is an innovator in the space, focused on designing, developing and manufacturing the most advanced motorsports apparel for the snowmobile and motorcycle rider. Clearly with a focus on snowmobile you know that their motorcycle jackets are going to outperform other brands when it comes to waterproofing breathability, durability and comfort in cold weather. Klim really makes the best all-weather jackets and their range of options for women are really solid. While not as much of a range for women as the others on the list we still love the gear they do make targeted to female riders.

Dainese Womens Clothing

Dainese Women's Clothing

“Dainese uses innovation and new technology to create protective gear and clothing for motorcycle, bike, equestrian and winter sports” according to the Dainese official website.

Started in 1972 the team there makes not only motorcycle boots but all types of other protective gear (back protectors, gloves, airbags and more). A very focused R&D outfit, Dainese was the first to develop a lot of the tech we take for granted these days.

Dainese has tons of options for women riders. You can also tell that the gear Dainese makes for female riders is custom (i.e not male gear in different colors) which is refreshing and it means that the fit and contours work better for the female shape.

Icon Womens Clothing

Icon Women's Motorcycle Clothing

Makers of Helmets, Jackets, Gloves, Pants, Footwear the team at Icon is one of the largest street based protective motorcycle apparel brands in the world.

Founded in 2002, ICON exploded onto the scene with unabashed attitude – maybe that’s why we love them so much. They focus on the modern performance rider who rides in the real world of messed up roads. Their core mission is “protecting riders whenever and however we can, knowing that reckoning day is coming for all of us”.

With a broad set of colors, styles, fits, and functionalities, Icon has gear for every woman and every riding condition. They are among the most popular women’s gear makers in the business. The relative upstart (in motorcycle gear years) knows how to create cool looking women’s gear with solid functionality and a unique quality. We are big fans.

REVIT Womens Clothing

REVIT Womens Motorcycle Clothing


With a focus on innovation and well designed motorcycle clothing, REV’IT knows how to make cool clothing and gear.

We’ve often described REV’IT as a company that “gets it”. Their focus on motorcycle gloves shows they know riders really well.  We love for example that most of the gloves are constructed with seasonality in mind, which most riders know make a huge difference.

We love that REVIT makes a wide range of jackets for both men and women. Available at a broad range of price points it is not hard to find a REVIT motorcycle jacket for every riding style, budget and body type out there. REVIT jackets are some of the highest rated by consumers and it is not hard to see why when you consider the amount of R&D and number of years of experience the team at REVIT has. Looking for a motorcycle jacket? Check these guys out. Engineered exclusively for the specific shape of a woman’s body, REVIT! women’s gear is available in a wide range of needs.

Resources for Women’s Motorcycle Clothing & Apparel

Here’s a list of resources for clothing and apparel that have been designed and manufactured specifically for women, in women’s sizes.

These are manufacturers and retailers of women-specific sizes – not “unisex” sizes. Use caution, because many manufacturers do not use women-specific sizing, which may result in a poor fit; even when companies say they have women-specific sizing, they may mean small, medium or large, but hopefully the patterns are at least cut for women. Bottom line — be careful and ask questions!

wBW Visitor Recommendations: wBW Visitor “M.” writes: “I recently bought my leather jacket from Foxcreek Leather. The jacket fits like it was made for me. I can’t say enough about the quality of the jacket. It is American made and guaranteed for life, which I know is important to a lot of motorcycle riders. Shipping was free since I chose to let it come ground. This jacket fits me perfectly. They are willing to do whatever it takes for their customers and they will custom fit too”  wBW Visitor “S.Y.” suggests She-Rides Active Wear as a good source for boots, gloves, jackets, pants and more.
