So I'm gonna be "income tax pimpin" here soon, as most of us lol .. and I'm just curious on everyone's thoughts on what their favorite hot weather gear has been? I'm a warm blooded guy and I do most of my riding in the hot summer months. just curious about kinetic mesh/light hydrogen and whatever else the other companies offer? Not sure if it matters but, I'm a larger American at 6 ft 2. 215 pounds. just curious on best fit and comfort and something somewhat durable. cost doesn't really matter, AND GO !!!

I've been really happy with Troy Lee's vented stuff (I use both their GP and SE). It's comfortable, durable and breathes well. It fits true to size.

I bought a cooling vest that you soak in water and then ride, but haven't been able to try it yet. The below is what I use when I'm done riding and wear around in the pits to stay cool.

Spam warning but FLY's Kinetic Mesh drops in 3 weeks at Daytona. I am biased but this year's stuff is legit.

As a rider in texas i can say that fly kinetic mesh and fox vented 360 gear is my go to

Fxr revo is solid warm weather gear. Jersey is vented mesh like the tld and pants are similar to fox flexair material. I have tld gp air gear and like the fxr stuff more.

Fox Airline that drops in a couple months will be their lightest gear yet and is priced between the 180 and 360 sets.

How ventilated are they? I had a kinetic mesh set in about 2013 and they were good but not as ventilated as I would like to have them.

I don't really like TLD but kinda forced to buy it because of the ventilation.
The GP Air line has ventilation everywhere, not only on the sides or the back. How about the kinetic mesh?

I must admit that material Troy Lee Designs uses is the best I have seen as far as ventilation.

Fox 360 Airline or Fox Flex Air are my go to vented gear sets. I wear them year around.

The Airline is a complete vented jersey and the pants are predominantly vented mesh panels, which can be a pain in the butt riding in the sand lol.

All of the panels on the jersey and pant (except leather knee) are ventilated. It's always a balancing act between durability and targeted performance. In a perfect world, you could build huge air ports and never have an issue but most people want bulletproof products, too. More air is great but it also makes tearing and ripping more likely.

Shift Blue Label. Good gear for hot days.

I have used Alias A2 vented gear this year which is super vented as well.

Man up and sweat

Wear your chest protector too.

2013 CRF450R Factory Connection revalve, All stock.

My shift white label seemed pretty good in 100 degree weather. Soaked in sweat but felt like very good ventilation

If you actually dont care thats its Moose gear, their sahara gear is the best actual vented gear on the market; durable, the fit has gotten much much better in the past few years, decent colors and design. Most motocrossers wont wear it cuz its moose but take it from the offroad world of 2-3 hour races in 95 degrees, its the best vented gear there is, bar none.

If you want light weight gear performance that breaths well, the Fox flexair, the new answer trinity, shift blue label, fly hydrogen lite are all really nice.

True "vented gear" fox makes one colorway, fly has Kinetic mesh, Thor has a few, Troy Lee GP air is their best vented stuff, Moose Sahara,

Fox 360, TLD SE Air, Thor Fuse Air, Shift Black Label, Seven Zero, are all premium gear with some venting added. Typically fine for the local moto bros doing 4 lap motos.

You could probably get JT Racing Vented gear for pretty cheap right now. Runs true to size

I do like the JT vented gear...its flimsy and doesn't last off road very long...but its comfortable and very vented.

Agreed! Vented stuff just lets more sand in, i have friends that take their goggles off because they say it’s to hot, if a guy can’t handle the heat, get a cat.
