I live in NC and bought this jacket for the humid 100 degree summer weather. This is a great summer jacket it flows a ton of air and it keeps you cool as long as you are moving. These jackets run really tight in the chest and shoulders, so I would suggest ordering a size up. I am 6'4" about 200 lbs and I have a 40" chest. I ordered an XL. I was pleased with the fit after I broke in the jacket, however I like my riding gear really tight.
I was wearing this jacket when I lowsided my bike last week and, it performed quite well. The jacket held together during the crash (although there was a little more tearing in the elbow than I would have liked to see) and the body armor worked great. I managed to escape with just a few scratches and bruises mainly because of this jacket. I will likely be ordering another Tarmac Air to replace my old jacket. You can't beat this jacket for $200.
