Riva Cordura Jacket 1000 Denier


The Riva 1000 Denier Cordura Jacket is made in the USA custom, to fit every size rider. 1000 Denier Cordura provides better tear/abrasion strength than the majority of leather. To learn more about this click on: “Save Your Hide Guide”. All of Motoport’s1000 Denier Cordura is soft and supple. There is no break in period. This material is far softer than all the 500 Denier Polyurethane coated materials and five times stronger. At this time Aero-Stitch and Olympia are the only two companies using 500 Denier Cordura. Both of these companies and all the other synthetic motorcycle jackets made are coated on the inside with plastic “Polyurethane”. The majority of synthetic jackets are made today from plastic coated Polyester. Polyester has far less tear abrasion strength than Cordura. Motoport’s 1000 Denier Cordura material has no Polyurethane coating. No worries about the plastic Polyurethane melting into the skin when in a tumble.

The Riva is a waist cut jacket. Read: Waist Cut vs 3/4 Length Jackets Here

500 Denier Cordura is one of the best materials used in other synthetic motorcycle jackets. 500 Denier Cordura will tear at 22 pounds. 22 pounds is not adequate protection when riding on pavement. Motoport’s 1000 Denier Cordura tears at 110 pounds. Both tear and abrasion strength is on par with new competition grade leather.

The 1000 Denier is an open weave and breathes far better than Denim. It is Motoport’s most breathable nylon. The Stretch Kevlar breathes better than the 1000 Denier Cordura, and Motoport’s Mesh Kevlar is the most breathable material.

Sizing Guide:
To ensure proper sizing Motoport needs: Height / Weight / Sleeve (from center at base of neck around outside of arms to bend in wrist). To give us the most accurate sleeve measurement, follow the Dress Shirt Sleeve instructions below. Actual Chest / Actual Waist. (No jacket or pant sizes.)Do not inhale when measuring chest. Waist should be measured where you tighten the belt. All measurements taken in a relaxed position. Tape measure should also be comfortable, not tight or loose.NOTE:If ordering Aero-Tex liner we need a neck circumferance measurement at collar height or 2″ from the base of your neck.Follow these instructions to measure for correct sleeve lengthMeasuring a motorcycle jacket alone is not good. Please help to confirm the proper sleeve length by measuring a Dress Shirt Sleeve length as shown below. Also make sure to mention when providing this measurement, that this is a dress shirt sleeve length not a jacket sleeve length measurement, measured as shown in Sizing Detail.

Note: Your dress shirt sleeve measured as shown above should be approximately 2″ shorter than the jacket sleeve length measured.

After we receive the above measurements, we will advise if any other measurements are necessary.



• World’s top rated, lightweight, perforated Tri-Armor that fully covers: Back, shoulders, elbow/forearms and chest. All Tri-Armor is in Velcro secured pockets and can be removed. Motoport’s Tri-Armor covers more of the body that any other motorcycle apparel available. This provides the world’s best coverage for over all impact protection. Tri-Armor molds to the body in 30 minutes or less. After initial break the armor becomes comfortable with no restriction of movement. The Tri-Armor does not make the jacket warmer in hot weather. The perforated Tri-Armor pulls the jacket material away from your skin creating an air space that allows the armor to breathe. CLICK HERE to view the jacket Tri-Armor.
