I got this jacket mainly for riding in the hot weather, I have another jacket with a removable inner liner that works fine for the colder seasons.
The air flow is pretty good, much more than a regular jacket with zippered vents, but when compared to other "air" jackets, the venting suffers because the pockets block some of the wind. If you're looking to maximize your venting, I'd go with a jacket with no obstructions.
That said, the pockets are a nice feature. Although, you need to evaluate how often you'll need 6 outer pockets in addition to the two inner pockets and the one over your butt (this one contains the rain pullover, but put that in the top box because it felt like something was resting on my butt when it was in the pocket). The outer zippered pockets are easy to get in to with gloved hands. The lower outer pockets are velcro and not too bad to get in to. The upper outer pockets have a snap and velcro and are smaller, so they're harder to open and reach in with gloves on, especially while riding.
So if you like storage and are too hot in your current jacket, this is a good compromise. If you just need a well vented jacket to ride to work in the summer, get one with no pockets.
Yes, I recommend this product.
