Question Leather or textile?

Ok guys so here is another stupid post by by asking and another stupid question and wanting your opinions. I can't make up my mind on getting a leather or textile jacket. I had a leather and a textile and I love the feel and comfort of a leather but in the summertime here in cal it gets too damn hot for a leather. I dont perticurcly like the look of textiles but they do feel better in the summer. I am looking at getting wither the leather or textile Alpinestars stunt jacket(not the stunt2) in black/green.here are some pics the smaller one that has more green and less white is the leather.

Call Vanson and ask that question. I did and the guy sorta tore me new one.

Honestly, textile is better than just wearing street clothing, but you need someone elses hide between you and the elements. If you want cool, go with the deeply discounted Vanson Hurricane. They're almost giving them away right now.

Dress for the slide & not the ride

Get both I have a textile and will purchase a leather shortly. I like the textile for the same reason, but want the leather for the added protection. When it's just to damn hot textile and say at night I will put the leather on.

Heavenly Father, thank you for your Word which is the Truth that sets me free. Give me strength to separate myself from anything that does not honor You. In Jesus Name. Amen.

I thought about doing this. only problem is I really like these jackets and I dont know 1)if I can still get one 2) how much longer I will be able to get them. I have been looking for a darker green black jacket like these for some time now. I like the way Astars fit me so I want these.

Not sure if they make them in green, but I got a Cortech/Tourmaster GX-Air textile and absolutely love it. Great price and very high end quality material.
