I've found the ventilated mesh jackets to be really good. I have this Tourmaster Draft Air 3: http://www.tourmaster.com/inc/sdetail/d ... _3/116/628

For the summer, leave out the liner, and you get some nice airflow, while still having armor in the right places. Also, the brand name 'Tourmaster' is more likely to get you a warning than "Joe Rocket". ;)

I tried it tonight with the liner in, as it's a bit chilly out here tonight. It works great at blocking the wind. Haven't tried it in rain yet. Need to get some rain pants next.

It has two slash pockets on the outside, and two different inside pocket. One is sized for an old cell phone and one is a full size zip one.

There's a velcro strip that closes over the zipper to keep it from flapping annoyingly against my chin.

Build quality is good; about what you'd expect at this price point. That is to say, you wouldn't mistake it for a $500 jacket.

Here are some pix:

It has an inside pocket on each side. Here's one. You can also see here where the liner zips in:

Highly recommended 3 season jacket. It cost just over $100, I think. You can see from the link above that it's available in colors other than dayglow, if that's not your thing.

I like Jeremy,
Because it's black mesh on HiVis trim rather than HiViz mesh on black trim. Mine is a firstgear product and the bugs get into the mesh causing for some effort to get them brushed out after an evening ride. Out of sight, out of mind with your reversed color pattern. It's better for this reason alone.

I have a Tourmaster Sonora 3/4 air mesh Hi-viz jacket and I can't say enough for it. It saved my life, it let's the air flow through when I am riding, it comes with an inner liner for warmth and a rain liner to keep you dry. I have worn it with and without the liners. My wife liked the feel of it enough that she bought one for herself. These are not $100 or cheaper jackets, but they are worth it. ($200 on sale)

I tried the liner, which is a wind/rain barrier only; no insulation. It works great for wind. My guess (experience) is that this will make the jacket good for down into the 50s (°F), without wearing a fleece underneath.

On a warm day, it is good for ventilation with the Givi windscreen on the PCX. On a hot day, it would be OK, except at really low speeds. With a stock PCX windscreen, it might be cool in ambient temps below 80°F.

I haven't tried it in rain yet. I'll update this when I do.

Have the same Tourmaster jacket. The liner is great for rain and wind into the upper 50’s for me. A thin fleece underneath will get me another ten degrees before I need my winter weight jacket.

Joe rocket has just released a jacket liscenced by Honda, it is summer light mesh with approp liners for cold and wet riding. It has Honda logos front and back. I have put about 750 miles on it in hot weather and it has great flow.

Nice looking jacket. I like the fact that it has armor, is available in the gorilla sizes, and reflective surfaces. . .and "Honda" on it! :D
