When I bought this jacket 6 weeks ago, there were very few reviews of it, and even fewer reviews coming from places with hot weather. I decided to give it a shot.
The air flow is amazing. In 60-70 degree weather I have to add layers to stay warm. When temperatures hit 90+ degrees with 90% humidity, the jacket remains comfortable as long as you aren't sitting still. As you begin to sweat, the air simply whisks it away, cooling you off and leaving you with a minimal amount of perspiration.
The style is very nice. I bought the version with red/white/black sleeves. When off the bike and walking around it catches lots of eyes, and so I'm sure it catches just as many while riding.
The material is soft but you can feel the durability. I went along with the sizing instructions and I have enough room for the added back and chest protectors. Dainese is the only brand of jacket I've ever tried on that I can expect to feel broken in when it's brand new; they just fit that well, and this jacket is no exception.
As far as bang for your buck, this jacket is priced high for a reason. It is modular. It's phenomenal for street riding, but you can also take it to the track and feel safe. If you are crazy about riding on the track, especially if you are nuts about aerodynamics and having a hump, then this may not be the jacket for you. However, If you occasionally hit the track for fun, but mainly ride on the street, I cannot think of a better looking/more protective garment.
The only complaint I might have(which is actually a positive 10 months out of the year here) is that it isn't a bit warmer. When temps get back down into the 40's 50's I will have to wear a windbreaker and sweater underneath it.
5 across the board because you can take this jacket anywhere and it will do everything you ask it to do while looking great.
Yes, I recommend this product.
