Hey guys normally in the summer i commute with kevlar jeans, airflow boots, and the revit airwave jacket but i think it might not look at home in the scrambler. Any suggestions on a cool retro jacket that has tons of airflow? I live in Texas which summer can get in the 85-105 range and plan to move to Merida Yucatan which is the same but humid. I really want protection but with breathability, suggestions are welcome.

I bought this a month ago and like it a lot but have not ridden in hot weather with it but it seems like it would flow air well in the heat. The armor is solid, it is well constructed and looks much better than the picture.

+1 for the Dainese recommendation. I have a Dainese Air Flux textile mesh jacket and I chose it because it's a classic design. Doesn't make me look like as if I belong to a race track or a Robocop franchise.

Also check out offerings from Ugly Bros and Komine if they are available in your neck of the woods. Both have several retro / neo-classic designs and use either denim or waxed canvas for their CE rated jackets.

I bought the Dainese City Guard 'jacket' if you can call it that. You're not going to like it though because it looks like 1913 football gear, if 1913 football gear was made of nylon and plastic.




I specifically bought it because it has plastic chest armor and the back protector is also thick plastic. I keep feeling like it's finally my turn to be hit by a car.
