I bought this because I have always been impressed with Tourmaster/Cortech products and needed a summer mesh jacket. Other Tourmaster mesh jackets come with two interior liners so I have often seen complaints that when wearing just the mesh it is way too big. I'm 6'0" and 175# and the medium Flex 2 I got was still a little too big. I thought a small would be too small so I didn't exchange it but be aware that these seemed designed more for heftier folks. (the medium is a good length for me but there is extra room in the arms and chest area and I can't tighten the waist -I'm a 32 waist- quite as much as I'd like)
The venting works great, when I got the jacket I took just the mesh layer over a t-shirt for a test ride in 65 degree weather and got really cold so I'm sure it will be perfect when the temp hits 90. It takes some time to get the liner and rain-outer layers on and off which means you know they are well-attached but can also be a nuisance when you go up and down mountain passes and need to shed and add layers.
My lowest rating comes on style. I got the light grey/silver color and it doesn't look bad but isn't particularly stylish. The black looks better but I wanted to be more visible to other motorists and compromised in the name of safety. The mesh flaps around a little at speed and I wonder if I look like I'm wearing a motocross jersey. With the rain layer over it the jacket looks very puffed up especially on the highway and even with the air vents closed.
The best feature is the cuffs, which can be tightened very close to your wrists while still being very comfortable so you can close your gloves around the outside of the jacket.
I also appreciated the zippers which are all very high quality and have different sizes and pulls on them so you pull the right one intuitively.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm very happy with these. They're well-fitted, flow air pretty well, and look good. I appreciate the foam strip around the bottom of the legs that helps them stay in place at your shoes. There is also a little extra length in the legs that makes them fit right when your knees are bent on the bike. Adjustments are intuitive. There is some foam at the lower back, a good deal of it at the hips, and plastic at the knees so I feel pretty good about the protection. Although they'll get hot if you aren't moving around, they are pretty comfortable even off the bike so you don't feel like you have to change pants right before or after riding. The jacket attachment zipper fits into my Tourmaster jacket, which was a pleasant surprise. The bad? The pockets aren't very functional and having a phone or wallet in one can be uncomfortable when leaning over a sportbike; I prefer to use my jacket pockets anyway so it isn't a big deal unless you're riding sans-jacket. The belt loops are useless since the velcro waist attachment goes over them and you don't need a belt because of said velcro.
Yes, I recommend this product.
