Summer jackets

Hi all..
Well it's almost summer here in Sacramento, CA.
Our average high temps now are in the mid to high 80's.
By June we'll be approaching the 100's..
Clearly I do not have the jacket for this heat...
Any suggestions for jackets in hot climates?

Thanks!

Clear skies & tail winds!

One that is well ventilated


I have a Roland Sands Design Ronin leather jacket, it has perforated portions under the arms and ventilates well when 1/2 unzipped and traveling over 40km/h. Otherwise it gets quite hot when standing still. It usually hovers around the 90F (30C) during summer here.

I'm in Singapore and it's hot almost all year round.

The Klim Induction works well for me, it will still get hot while waiting at traffic lights but what jacket does not.

Using the Klim Induction jacket. Great ventilation with D30 shoulder,elbow and back protection. For the hot weather in SE Asia its excellent.

esa1178 IMHO you want one of these- a fully armoured mesh jacket with removable quilted liner for when it really gets hot.
Here's some pics of mine. I've had it a couple of years and i remember it came in other colours- blue and a black one i think. i chose the high vis Red.
It wasn't that expensive and It came from a company called Bikers Gear and i think they are based here in the UK.

My new Fieldsheer is excellent in red and black. I use a windbreaker over the jacket in the cool mornings.

Thanks for all your advice.
I have a FieldSheer Jacket that has a removable lining, but still very hot.
I'm relocating to Seattle soon, so it'll come in handy there..
