I saw these advertised elsewhere and thought to myself, if I still have to wear a jacket on top, what's the point?"

Actually I thought I would try wearing it over a t-shirt.

Would not provide much, if any, protection against abrasion.

But would protect against impact.

Not perfect.

But better than nothing....

I've got a Pilot mesh jacket which is about as open as possible, but it gets awfully easy to take off over 90 deg. F.

When it starts getting that hot I look to put the mesh on. A little squirt here and there with tepid water on a t shirt with mesh over and I generally have some cooling for 45-60 minutes at a time.

I was lambasted for daring to post this somewhere else, but I use a kevlar/cotton lumberjack shirt with standard pads over a cotton T-shirt. My trousers/pants are kevlar/cotton cargo pants with pads (although like all by bike pants the knee pad is never in the correct place). This set up keeps me much cooler than any of the mesh stuff I have or have tried. If I am getting too hot, I can wet it and the wicking action cools me down (although I usually sweat enough so this isn't necessary). If my head is getting hot, I buy a frozen towel from 7/11 and put it inside the helmet.



The biggest improvement is on my left leg that literally burns if I use synthetic pants, but is fine with my cotton cargo pants.


I'm riding in 40degC+ (105degF+) temps, so this stuff matters to me.

Not into “man boobs” here Russ !

On another note,,,, I was witness to a bad bike/car accident this past Tuesday, I was following a Malibu down a 2 lane road where you could just barely see the top of the drivers head, the driver was driving very erratically varying her speed from 10mph to 30mph (40mph zone) with a slight weave, we got stopped at a light and nearly went through the entire green cycle before she decided to go, it turned yellow as I went through the intersection behind her. Anyway we got to an area where there’s a grocery store and multiple service stations at another intersection.

The woman slowed way down &stopped, started to move and stopped again (wanting to turn left, no signal) very erratic even though there was a big opening to turn, she finally gassed it to turn left and as I moved my car onto the berm on the right To go Around when I heard the bike, a large young man on a crotch rocket going to fast, no helmet, no jacket, no gloves, just the bang as he hit the rh rear door, I could see him tumbling down the road, must’ve been catapulted over the car. If I had stayed behind the Malibu he probably would have landed in my windshield.

The very old lady driving the Malibu initially started to run but there was a lot of people there, lots of traffic due to a lot of construction with Ill-conceived detours where you just can’t get to where you want to go, making tempers short & people very erratic.

The old lady probably shouldn’t have been driving particularly after following her for nearly 5 miles and how poorly she was doing, the kid on the bike was going way to fast for the traffic and conditions and he should’ve had some gear on, particularly a helmet.

When I left he was moving some but not real cognizant, lot’s of good people around him tending to him. Pieces of the bike everywhere, but I don’t know where the actual bike went.

So be careful and wear your gear, please !

I've had the Bohn for over a year and LOVE it !

When I get to use it ! , my son is always borrowing it .

Very comfy in hot weather , use a tee underneath .

Well made . Pads are well positioned and stay in place .

My son's 23rd birthday is TODAY ! And guess what he"s getting ?!
