Best summer jacket for Under $200

Going to sell my Joe rocket mesh to a friend so i need a summer jacket to replace it. Whats the best jacket for summer riding thats under or right at 200 bucks?

Can be leather(although prolly not for >$200), mesh (if its sturdy, not like my $80 JR POS), textile or whatever.

Ive got a perferated leather teknic from patrick and i absolutely love it but its just a bit to hot when im riding home from work in the middle of the afternoon. Max speed is like 45 mph on the way from work but id still like a decent jacket. The mesh feels awesome but im kinda scared of what would happen in a fall with that .

Let me know thanks

I bought one off the web, EXL brand. Is mesh with perforated leather on the shoulders and elbows, and hard CE armor. $60 off Ebay.

After crashing in my EXL leather jacket at 50 and seeing how well it held up, I didn't have any regrets getting a mesh from them. I like the idea of the leather on the main wear points as well.

I also have an Alpinestars Textile and love it. Ventilation is great and CE rated amor! Mine comes with a removable liner which works well for rain or on cool spring mornings are some cooler days in fall.
