which mesh jacket to get?!

I'm looking for a mesh jacket. These two are the only ones that I found that I really like. Does anyone have any personal reviews on them? Plan on getting red for which ever one. Which one would ya choose and why? Or is there another mesh jacket ya would recommend? Thanks!

Have a look at the Tourmaster Flex, and the Tourmaster Intake.

I sell parts for a living, trust me they are worth at least checking out.

I don't have either one, but I considered the Shift. It fit comfortable and seemed like the air flow would be good for summer riding.

I've owned two Shift jackets and while the fit and style were good, the stitching on the zippers came undone at the bottom on both of them. The first one broke on the first ride I used it on. It broke in such a way as to make the zipper unuseable.

Shift covered both under warranty, but I switched to Rev'it and haven't had a problem since. I have both an Air & Tarmac. Both have great airflow.

I've wondered how much a mesh jacket will protect me if I went down at highway speeds. I always wear my leather jacket but this heat has me contemplating mesh or one of those hybrids.

My Tarmac jacket has the Plastic armor in the arms & shoulder area, rubber pad in the spine area, belt clip / half zipper in the back to attach to the pants (..to keep from riding up) and is of leather & textile construction.

It looks like it may hold up well, as long as you're not 100 mph when you crash!

I would try to find them locally to try them on and get a view first hand so you know what you are getting instead of just going on pics

I went down at about 70 and every part covered by my mesh jacket was protected from rash...

Vents air great, has back padding, shoulder padding, elbow padding, basically in all the high impact areas. Comfortable too.
