which jacket for the summer?

alright here's my situation. i have a komodo Ceno jacket and i commute to work often. Since my jacket has a Hump on the back i can't use my backpack. so now im looking for another jacket to use for work.

over at www.sandhillspowersports.com they have a Fieldsheer Kinowa Perforated leather jacket for $194 free ship.

another choice was just to get a field sheer MEsh jacket the Johnny cool mesh jacket. for $112 free ship


what would be more suitable for houston weather? i was leaning towards the Leather jacket. just not sure with the hot weather coming up in a month or two.

i got the cortech intake, when i got knocked down the other day it did its job,
pads worked but the asphalt did a number to the fabric it at 30 mph, i still wear it but i think its a one fall jacket, cheap though and it was cool in july and august when ur not at a stop light, and in the winter (28 deg) the liner was very very good

all in all good for one fall, just dont fall right....

Stop and go, mesh.

I wear mesh in the summer, but mine has the CE armor, not foam pads.
