    Re: Safety vs Heat

    So how do you guys deal with the heat factor in the summer? Most of the protective gear I see out there is just extremely hot looking, and when temps get 100+, how do you deal? or do you have other protective gear that is lighter?

    Or do you just not ride during th summer?

    As long as you keep moving, preforated leathers are tolerable.

    I sweat... If I have to choose sweating or skin graphs, I sweat...

    I wear the same gear, I still ride, all I want, I just sweat in the process...

    Underarmor tshirt, perfed leathers, and pour water down your front side and it will cool as it evaporates.

    G force is right, I forgot to mention that. By all means, avoid cotton!

    Wear some form of coolmax, even if its long sleeve you'll be better off. The trick to being comfortable is to have a moisture transport layer! Then even when you sweat, you'll be comfortable!

    After much consideration, a couple of weeks ago I ordered some TourMaster Cordura gear, that you can open up vents on during hot weather. I like that it's water-resistant and good for cold or hot weather, since we have both here. Should be here any day from Kneedraggers.com.

    Take the safety route and sweat, if you ever go down you'll be thankful. I used a Roadcrafter suit, it's vented but still damn hot in the summer, we get 20+ days over hundred each summer here. When I would leave work to go home I would fill the pockets w/ ice (we have a free sode machine here). Like others have said, wetting down your clothes helps. And drink a lot of water.

    Perfed leather or textile gear.
    Short/long sleeve cotton shirt underneath.
    Small (1/2 pint) squirt bottle filled (and on long rides refilled) with water.

    Works for me

    I find a winter wet weather jacket with a zip out lining works really well if you take the lining out. The jacket breathes well enough and you stay fairly cool.

    This looks like it could be a viable alternative for the leather or nothing crowd.

    I use the JoeRocket Mesh jacket. About $120.00 and comes with padding.

    I was always skeptical about the safety factor of the jacket but certainly thought it has got to be better then a T-shirt only. As my friend can lay claim too, you can go down at a speed around 55-60 with minimal damage to the jacket or person.

    I have thought about the Joe Rocket Phoenix jacket for a while. I am skeptical about the safety factor if you wad it. Any one ever crash test a mesh jacket?

    Thanks for the link. I guess I will not be buying a mesh style jacket.

    I have the Fieldsheer Mach 1... MUCH better armor than the Joe Rocket.

    Or if its too hot for gear then I just sit on my bike in the driveway practicing full tucks

    So do you have any pics of these 'practice sessions' when you are wearing no gear?

    EDIT: Preferably from various angles, to confirm the correct positioning.
