New biker - Jacket advise

Hi, I'm a new rider and need some advise on sports jackets. Can anyone recommend any good makes to look at? I've got a budget of £200 max but there seems to be a lot to choose from in that price region. Should I go for leather or save some money and get a textile jacket? Any advise would be a great help!

Jacket choice

What bike do you have?  What kind of distances do you cover?  Do you ride all the time or for pleasure only?

Jacket

In that case you don't particularly need the waterproof and thermal qualities of a textile jacket.  I'd suggest a leather jacket.  They are not as versatile as textile in terms of the wether that they can deal with but the are nicer to wear.  Bike shows are good places to pick up kit at bargain prices if you can get to one.
