Buying a new mesh jacket, recommendations?

I have a Tecnic which is ready to retire and am considering a Joe Rocket Phoenix or a Fieldsheer High Flow 2.

I want armour and a good back pad. A visible colour to go with my YELLOW Nolan N104...

Any suggestions are welcomed.

BTW- I am liking the collar on the Fieldsheer the Joe Rocket has no collar and since I was hit in the neck at 70 mpg by a bee or something... and I have one of their 3 season textile jackets which is very well made.

What do you think?

I recently saw a friend's Icon jacket. Some of their designs are....loud...but it was made very nicely and included D30 armor which is pretty neat if you read up on it. They have a mesh jacket which I will probably pick up once the weather warms up. Link below.

I'll try to get over and take a picture or two but here's the link to the RevZilla video on it.

Look, if possible, at the site of HEIN GERICKE
This German company has a lot of good clothing and Iím happy with my summer, partly mesh, jacket.

I have used this Macna Flare over the last two summers; pretty cool because all the black panels you see are mesh. Also it has a pouch on the back with a small rain jacket included, in case you get surprised by a summer storm! Not sure though if these are sold in the USA...

Well, I bought the FieldSheer because the FieldSheer 3 season jacket is so well made and the mesh is a good jacket at a fair price.

Should be delivered today.

Does the Fieldsheer High Flow 2 come with a back pad or is it sold separately? Also hear they fit smaller than Joe Rockets.

It came with a foam back pad so I bought their special back pad for $49.

It fits very good, a bit small but still OK.

Well made, rode about 100 miles Sunday with it.
