All summer wondering why it has become brutal?
Then one evening I grabbed my old Joe Rocket Phoenix jack in case this lady I was going to see wanted to go out for dinner.
Then it dawned on me, this summer, in spite of using either a Veskimoe back pack or 9Qt carry container, I only used my Kevlar jacket. At the beginning of the summer I tried using the Kevlar crash pants--ROASTED!!.
One I removed my Motoport jacket and wore the joe Rocket, instant relief!! It was brutal any more!!
I was out riding today in 95F low humidity, Monsson season is over, aaaaaahhhhhh almost perfect; nice and cool, no Veskimo, not sweating buckets!!
motoport kevlar was OK running interstates; as soon as I slowed down, or was at a stand still, ROASTING. Veskimo back pack filled half way with two frozen water bottles an ice cubes lasted 30-45 minutes.
