Which ventilated jacket

Looking to get a different ventilated jacket. I have one of the Rockets now-the one with the leather ventilated sleeves but want something ALL ventilated (I live in Texas where "global warming" apparently got a head start on the rest of the nation-its been hot here for years). I've been looking at the Tourmaster Intake series. Anyone use one of these? Comments?

Thanks,

If you're looking for leather it's hard to go wrong with Vanson. The perf stuff flows a lot of air. I was told that I'd be cool under 70 degrees and it's true.

I would suggest the Nitro Racing jacket. Fully perforated man made fabric with lots of CE armor and a zip out lining for cold weather use. Inexpensive also.

Cool jacket comments

I have an inexpensive Cortech mesh that come with a liner and I too have near nuclear summers in Oklahoma----and this past season was miserable!--The Cortech is not the best but for $69 it does the job of a mesh--several rides I used a kithcen towel around the neck after I soaked it down and that made riding enjoyable---I have and Icon leather that is cool in looks but gets real stinky from sweat----OK under 70 degrees ---going to jump in for a First Gear Kilimanjaro 3/4---may not be the look you like but the reviews are good for long distance rides-----I put my vanity on the shelf for a little comfort when I go touring JD
