Motoport 1 piece mesh kevlar suit. Use a Fieldsheer sahara cooling vest underneath it on hot days. They make custom made to order for $400 to $470 kevlar mesh jackets as well. Flows air like stink with great abrashion protection (comes with a 7 yr. crash protection warranty) vs. Polyproplene thread mesh jackets that given half a chance will stick to you when you go ashpalt surfing. All the gear all the time.

I've been using an Icon titanium mesh, it's really nice, but discontinued. I think my next one is going to be an Alpinestars GP-R perforated leather jacket... tired of textile.

Joe Rocket Mesh jackets seem to be the preferred jacket here in Hampton Roads. I have a First Gear textile jacket with liner and zipper vents that seems to work well right now with the temps in the mid 60's.
