PostSubject: The best way to handle humid Auckland days   Thu Dec 30, 2010 7:29 pm

I don't sell these so this ain't an ad, but rather a recommendation. It wont suit you if you wear plaid shirts, socal style riding gear, t shirt without jacket, all matt black brigade, leather wannabe gangster vest etc etc etc. (Probably rules out most forum members hah!!!!!)
Anyway, I like being sensible so I usually wear a jacket with armour in it, boots, etc.
In previous summers it got so hot that I've taken to wearing long sleeve T shirts without a jacket, just to keep my body temp down & not be sweating inside a jacket.
This summer I decided I gotta find something that actually keeps my body temp down & which is also sensible. On the kiwibiker site the overall consensus/recommendation was a Rev'it Air Jacket. So I got one today. It's pretty amazing. Has armour in all the usual places but also has mesh panels that as soon as you start moving, flow air all around you.
I know some of you don't care much for this sort of thing, and that's totally your decision of course. But if you want something that serves this purpose (keep you cool whilst still being sensible) then this is the jacket

ew...

If I owned that I'd have to piss on it and roll in the dirt so it'd look something more in tune with my jacket and club cuts.
