I was checking out summer riding suits and I tried on the Venting Machine and the Airflow 3. The AirFlow has more opaque surfaces on the jacket. I was wondering if there is a huge difference between the two jackets when riding in the heat. A nice feature of the Airflow is that it comes in grey and red. Wearing black is one one of the problems when riding in the heat.
I'm also checking out the $299 Rev'it Airforce jacket. These jackets are really nice and cheaper than the BMW stuff. They have more color choices too. The only problem is that the four Rev'it dealers in the Bay Area don't stock the jacket. If I want to try it on I have to order it and keep it.
