First Gear rocks. I use a similar jacket when it gets hot out , I think it's a MeshTex 3.0 .

I can also recommend the First Gear Air 2.0 Overpants , they are great for summer because you can just throw them on over shorts or whatever and be protected and "air conditioned" while riding , then take'em off when you get where your going and be comfy and cool in shorts. The full leg zippers make it a 10 second on/off situation , and they have the same waterproof liner that you got with your jacket , so you can convert everything to 100% waterproof in a minute or two. I carry both liners in a tiny pouch ,not installed in the garments, because they interfere with the airflow that you want during hot conditions. ConverseIy , the liners make both garments much warmer and waterproof, when installed..... so if the weather goes south , you pop'em in and you are good to go. This system kicks butt if you go on longer rides where the weather can vary greatly , because the liner system packs so small and can cover a big range of conditions.

Velly Nice !
