perforated are the leathers with the small holes.

It has great ventilation for the summer and keeps the hot sun of your skin. If you store it in an airconditioned room before hitting rush hour traffic, it keeps its cool for a little while. If you ride fast, the ventilation works great.

any jacket is hot as in the summer time in Houston, so might as well go with the one that provides the best protection which is a leather jacket. you can find some pretty good lather jackets that breathe for a decent price. It's all about protection so go with the best!!

my boss just bought a vanson mesh jacket for $150. it has armour, and it's 100% mesh. I actually rode with it on while transporting his bike. It was nice and snug. I may get one later on.

Give Patrick a call and I am sure he can give you a quote that is unbelievable.

i looked at that jacket as well, they have them over at Lundsford Honda. dunno, i like vanson's products but i couldn't see it holding up well.

thinking about a "venting machine" jacket from BMW, pretty pricey but from all the reviews i've read everybody loves theirs, and they crash well.
