Looking casual has become all the rage these days and the gear manufacturers within the power-sport community have not overlooked this fact. Here are a handful of very nice riding gear that can be worn comfortably off the bike while providing a good measure of protection when you're riding on the bike. Here are 10 great pieces of gear that should get you pointed in the right direction.

Roland Sands Design Ronin Jacket

Roland Sands Design Ronin Jacket
One of my personal favorite riding jackets, the RSD Ronin is the ultimate example of riding gear with a casual appeal. The Ronin features a tough oiled and waxed top-grain leather shell with perforated, pre-curved sleeves, zippered pockets, zippered sleeves, and a satin lining for that rich-man feel. There are prefabbed pockets for shoulder, elbow, and back protectors so you can stick your favorite armor in there (I recommend the D3O).Roland Sands Design

Alpinestars Oscar Enduro Jacket

Alpinestars Oscar Enduro Jacket
This is one of the coolest casual-style riding jackets we have seen in a long time. The Enduro draws on ’70s-era designs for this timeless and retro-cool design. It features multiple pockets, a heavy waxed-cotton main shell, and triple-stitched seams; its waterproof membrane and removable quilted liner means it can be worn in cool conditions. Think of this as the ultimate casual jacket for old-school ADV riders and folks who can’t leave the garage unless they go out in style.Alpinestars

Rev’It Williamsburg Jacket

Rev’It Williamsburg Jacket
The folks from Rev'It! continue to create great riding gear like the parka styled Williamsburg jacket. Available in black or green, this overcoat is constructed with a proprietary poly/cotton 2L outer shell with a breathable, waterproof membrane and hood. Seesmart CE-rated armor in the elbows and shoulders will help absorb some crash impact and you can add a back protector in the provided pocket. Both the thermal liner and hood are removable.Rev’It

Speed and Strength Black Nine Shirt

Speed and Strength Black Nine Shirt
This is as casual as it gets when you are talking about street gear. The Black Nine looks like a simple flannel but it's actually a lightweight Kevlar-reinforced riding jacket that is right at home on a cruiser as it is on a bobber. For less than 100 bucks, the S&S Black Nine is just tough enough to make the cut on this list.Speed and Strength

Alpinestars Crank Denim Jeans

Alpinestars Crank Denim Jeans
These slim-fitting and fashionable denim riding jeans feature aramid-reinforced impact areas, pre-curved leg design, CE-certified knee protectors, and removable hip pads. Plus, they look great and are comfortable (as long as you are the right body type to wear skinny jeans).Alpinestars

Dainese Tivoli Jeans

Dainese Tivoli Jeans
Available in both black and denim the Tivoli jeans are a great-looking pair of riding pants that offer protection from the harsh reality of street riding. As with most denim products they are reinforced with aramid fabric in impact areas and are equipped with armor in the pre-shaped knees. The Tivoli is designed for riders who prefer a traditional-fitting pant. This company is known for its Euro-fit or slim-fit gear, so if you like that style, the Dainese has that too.Dainese

Bates Freedom Boots

Bates Freedom Boots
These water-resistant leather and nylon construction riding boots from Bates feature side impact foam and leather welt construction that is tailored to remind us to support members of the armed forces; there are five stars on the heel which represent the five military branches, an American flag on the outside of the right boot, and other fine touches intended to say thank you to all who have served. The boots also look great and, since it was built by Bates, you know they're quality made in the USA.Bates

Stylmartin Marshall Riding Boots

Stylmartin Marshall Riding Boots
Form and function come together nicely here. Full-grain, waxed cowhide provides a water-repellant finish while the waterproof lining helps keep water from getting past the laces and into your boots. The Marshall is quite comfortable thanks to its soft, aged leather, reinforced toe, and lace-up design.Stylmartin
