Picked it up for $92 with shipping, got it in 2 days, can't beat that. I will give it some testing this weekend and let you guys know how it does.

Btw, I got the wine color, it is not as bright as the picture shows, it is darker which is better.
Yeah, wait till you find your self stopped in traffic on a sunny 90 degree day. Lighter colors for summer gear is the way to go, I would have picked the lightest color they offered....

But, decent jacket for the price, I wear a Silver Firstgear Mesh Tex:

KM is right. My next mesh gear is gonna be as light colored as they make it. I've got black, which is fine when I'm moving, but heats up immediately when stopped.

I tested it out this weekend and wasn't overly hot at all, I just unzipped the jacket while we were stopped or riding slow, I was very impressed with it, and it was in the low 90's while we were riding this weekend. It allowed air flow in just the right places, towards the night time when the temp. dropped I was still very comfortable. Just my 2 cents, I would have picked up a lighter color had I been able to find one for under $100 in a medium size.
