Hey, I am looking to buy my first set of motorcycle gear, but can't decide between leather and textile gear. Ideally, I would like for the gear to be able to cope with rain as well as heat (i.e Melbourne weather). Budget says that I can't get both a set of wet weather gear and hot weather gear separately. Here are the items I have considered so far: RST Razor Jacket And RST Ventilator 2 Jacket The pants I plan to purchase will most likely be the matching pants for the jackets. I have these two jackets high on my list due to both having CE armor at elbows, shoulders, as well as on the back. My main concerns are: if i get the leathers will it get too hot? With the mesh on the jacket, I wonder if it will actually provide protection. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. San.
