No, Nothing will work like leather. the mesh would do fine if you were riding a scooter that topped out at 40mph.. but the mesh will decintegrate at high speeds.. A perfed leather jacket is not hot until you are stuck in traffic... and the safty aspect is well worth getting hot.. I always wear my gear...

That is great for under a leather suit,, but will not even come close to holding up against pavement on its own,,
yeah i know. But like the OP requested....suggest a body armor. Not a jacket....not a suit....so i did what they asked.

Hell he could put something over this body armor that'll help holding up against pavement.

BUT i will agree, that the body armor I posted is something to be worn under a jacket to get its FULL use. =)

I hope that you aren't implying that you will be wearing this armor without a jacket. That is just flat out stupid and simply wouldn't hold in place if you were to go down.

Get a textile, not mesh, jacket.

I think he already knows that and wants to know what types of armor are out there not anything related to textile or leathers just plain mesh.

Trust me I go to Vegas all the time. I have friends who live down there and even on a cool day it can be really hot. We are trying to defend where you are coming from and some people just want to flame.

Yeah the cool thing about that one is you can choose what sections to wear since the arms/ shoulders and chest/back are separate. lil pricey though
