The Cortech Latigo RR is an almost perfect summer glove; it has good ventilation, great style, and strong construction. Anthony's video review of this product is 100% accurate. I would only change four things on this glove to make it perfect (in my opinion anyway). First, I would add a dual cuff closure. Second, I would add an inch in length to the wrist strap as it is easily pulled out of its loop when putting the gloves on. Third, a hard TPU slider on the heal of the hand would give better protection. Fourth, I would add a finger bridge between the little and ring fingers for stability.

I chose this jacket because I ride in an area where the temperature can vary greatly during a single ride. The option of removing the leather panel when the temperature rises to create a mesh jacket is very handy. What I like about the Super Ego versus a standard textile mesh jacket is that even with the panel removed, you still have leather in the outer arms and shoulders for abrasion resistance. The overall construction of the jacket is very high quality with no defects that I could find. As a mesh jacket, it allows for air flow very well, with the exception of under the back protection pad. I may later upgrade to the CE armor, which appears to be more open for airflow. (Plus better armor is always a good thing.) The fit of the jacket is good, but I wish the torso were an inch or two longer. (If I lose twenty pounds and get rid of my gut, that could fix the issue as well). Both the jacket and leather panel have built in waist adjusters so you don't have to readjust the waist when removing the panel; however, the elbow adjusters do have to be reset, which is easily done. In my opinion the jacket looks awesome too.
