Real cops wear leather

Real cops wear leather
These two policemen among with security guards kept onlookers away while the fire brigade cut down a storm-damaged tree in central Turku yesterday.

I think their leather outfits are both cool in a way and also embarrasingly obsolete on the other hand. Suppose they won't wear out as fast as the modern issue nylon ones that most motorcycle cops wear nowadays. They look cool in a way that they remind me of the outback cops featured in Mad Max (starring Mel Gibson amongst others), on the other hand I'd bet these two were issued the uniforms when the movies were made ;)

Your last remark might be true - some motorcycle polices do use gore-tex uniforms...
