Basically, with textile the advantages are cost and ventilation, while with leather, the advantage is superior protection.

In addition, with textile, you can wear it in the rain, while most leather jackets will get ruined.

Personally, I own three jackets... a mesh one for when it gets really hot and humid out, a textile one when it is cool out (60-70F) and a 3/4 length textile one when it is cold out (50F or less).

I am looking to eventually replace my textile jacket with a leather jacket. A couple brands that I'm looking into are Alpinestars and Fieldsheer.
