Yes there is appropriate gear for summer riding. If you are just putting around get some Kevlar or Draggin jeans and some leg guards for pants. Or something like this

As far a jackets you could go with mesh, but as stated they are somewhat unreliable as far as melting under friction, and for certain are a one and done. So if you go down once the jacket will most likely be broken beyond wearing it again. For more serious summer riding jacket check this out

I have above jacket and it rocks.

I cover the skin I want to protect...

Leather does breath well, especially leather riding jackets designed wo liners... at a stop it may kill u but moving its fine. You can never compare riding w gear to without or mesh to leather, but if u keep to a standard u wont notice the differences as much.

I have a leather/mesh and a coronal vynol out there somewhere(all my gear gets borrowed) and that is night and day to leather but protection and riding riding pace goes hand and hand.

Remember to drink water and a rejuvenating drink also! Gatorade etc... U can dehydrate quick, especially w a breathable jacket that makes u feel cool but is drying out ur skin.

Wear "Under Armor" shirts under on rides. They are very light weight and pulls the moisture away from your body.
