Living in Virginia, summer days can get a little "toasty". However I'm confident that the T-GP-R Air Jacket will keep me protected, and cool at the same time, regardless of how stifling the heat becomes.
The other great thing about this jacket has to be the full sleeve liner. Wearing the jacket with the liner and a moderate under-layer you can easily push this jacket into 50 degree territory.
I purchased the White/Black/Red in Large, and I'm 5'11" 175lbs and it fits great, I have longer arms and could have used about an inch more in the sleeves but an XL would have been too big for me. One thing to remember with mesh jackets though... they're absolute bug magnets, so if that's of concern to you, you may want to opt for a color with black in the center.
My only gripe with the jacket is the forearm and elbow protection's willingness to slide down toward my wrist and leave my elbow exposed. The pocket the armor sits in is a little too big, however a quick modification with a needle and thread fixed this with no problems.
Overall a great jacket, and I would definitely recommend to anyone riding in hot & humid climates.
