This is why I'm ordering a titanium chainmail suit with welded-in CE armor. Better protection than full leathers, and just as practical for street riding.

Seriously, rock whatever you want on your body. I'm not going to judge. However, I do think textile is more comfy than leather, and both will provide adequate protection when you're falling down the mountain.

The street is not the track and no place for track speed or style of riding. You wanna wear full leathers on the street its more about image than safety. Come on, in full leathers without even a scuffed knee puck your posing, like it or not.
However anyones free to ride and dress as they like for whatever reason they choose, even if its to stroke their ego.
Oh look, someone wants to be a mommy!

After all it is far too short to stress so much especially about how someone else chooses to life his/her life.
