I WISH they had air conditioning. I would rather ride in 35-40 degree weather (I stop when it gets down to freezing) anyday then this stuff.
I ride all year long, but I think the months where I ride the fewest amount of days is Febuary , July and August.
I normally take the bike for every mundane task there is. Not in July and August. I hate riding in town, sitting at a traffic light, the heat emanating from all the cars and pavement....I feel like an egg in a frying pan.....
Friend has a mesh jacket and now a safari vest....works real well....when you are moving.
A cheap alternative is to just wear a wet sweatshirt. Drys out too quick tho, but it works. I also tried wearing my regular coat with a wet shirt. Only problem there was my arms did not get enough wind flow......but shirt stayed wetter longer. I thought I would sweat to death, but it was a little cooler.

Don't forget, it has a probably $5-$10 pump too.

You know, I actually suggested using one of the misters that are supposed to cool you off like what you see at amusement parks. However, if you're wearing glasses, the fog might impede your vision. Not a good thing, plus if the humidity is like it's been around here for a while(60-74%) the evaporative cooling doesn't work so well.

I thought it sounded like a good idea until the facts were presented.

Lets face it, if you live in one of the Southern States or in the Southwest, attempting to wear fullprotective clothing some days can kill ya----literally. I am a firm believer in always wearing it but you can't at times. You can ride or stay home, me I flip the coin and ride, but never in shorts, without gloves and a helmet. But there are times when the protective jacket stays home.:PIf you can give us airconditioning I'll take it, but I just don't believe that will happen.

Have you tried a mesh jacket and/or pants? You'll get just about as much airflow with mesh, and it keeps the sun off... and itoffersprotection in a crash.

With modern mesh gear one can no longer rationalize not wearing protective gear.

That's like asking, "who makes the best oil" or, "what tires are best." Get something that fits well and has CE-approved armor.
