I'm an Aerostich fan. It has been my main gear for at least 20 years. I have bought a half dozen jackets trying to do better. Always go back to wearing my Stich. Sizing is critical. If the pockets are a problem as mentioned above the jacket is too snug. The stiffness goes away in short order if you wear it a lot. We "live on" the bikes about 5 months a year. From south to north, hot to cold, the Roadcrafter jacket is the only one I take on these trips.
I will wear a mesh jacket for short trips locally but not long days or when traveling because the increased air flow leads to dehydration. I also have a pair of mesh pants I sometimes wear with the Roadcrafter jacket. About 90 degrees is my limit for the Roadcrafter pants.
