Breathes just as good as mesh? Hmm ya got me interested. I currently have a big bulky First Gear Kilimajaro (sp?) but I have been VERY interested in the Alpinestar TZ-1, perhaps I need to take this SMX Airflo into consideration. In 105+ degree days I need all the airflow I can get!!!!!firefighter81 said:Agreeing with what everyone else said so far. If you are worried about protection and keeping your skin attached get a nice perforated leather jacket (Alpinestars SMX Airflo is what I'm wearing in my avatar and it's breaths just as good as a mesh jacket, fully perforated in the front)
