Re: Hot gear
last year I finally bought a jacket IO believe gives me good protection om hot wx, stretch kevlar from Motoport. For years I used a Joe Rocket Phoenix jacket which kept me cooler than no jacket and gave more protection than no jacket.
the open weave of the stretch kevlar is hotter than the Joe Rocket, but allows more air to flow across me when in motion. But, in motion with 100+F across me isn't better than less air across mein the Joe Rocket. Next time around tighter waeve kevlar.
I've got the pants and liners on order for this year. If I can fit it into my budget Eskimo!! It will be interesting to see if I'll be cooler with the Eskimo with a eind breaker over the vest or a winf braker over the kevlar jacket?
Last year I bought a pair of air out TRQ boots, gortex boots are way tooo hot. To get the cooling effect of the perferations I have to stick the front on my boots out, other wise the tupper ware blocks air flow.
