Good airflow for a full textile jacket. Goretex rocks!

I live in the tropics, so i was apprehensive about getting a full textile jacket (as opposed to a mesh one). But the weather here can be hot over (35 deg C) and humid one day, and full on tropical storm the next. Sometimes on long trips, you find lots of 'start-and-stop' storms. That makes it hard to wear a mesh jacket, because you will seldom get a chance to zip on and off the waterproof membrane each time the rain comes or goes.
I just took my Philip jacket and Tomsk pants out for ride yesterday and got just that. Lot's of short but heavy downpours. The goretex in this jacket work brilliantly and kept me dry. Odd thing though, the supposedly waterproof pocket next to the main zip of the jacket somehow let water in, and my passport got pretty soaked. Otherwise i was pretty much dry inside.
In the hot, the vents worked extremely well to my surprise. To me the airflow was so effective that i don't miss my mesh jacket at all. In fact even when caught in traffic, i didn't find this jacket any hotter than my old Teknic mesh.
On the downside, i found the sleeves very tight when in the riding position (i ride a sportster). I'm wearing a size 50, and the jacket fit perfect standing up. But once on the bike the sleeves were so tight, sometimes i felt the circulation restrict. I think the stretch panels on the bruce would address this issue
I also don't like the velcro strap on the collar. I usually ride without cinching it down (coz it's hot), but the strap winds up flapping in the wind. Rather silly looking.
