Mesh gear

Hey guys. Now that I'm in Phoenix, I need to start keeping my eyes peeled for quality mesh pants/jacket. Anyone in the southern states have any recommendations? I'm looking for something that will move air through very easily while providing CE armor protection.

been running fieldsheer pants n jacket for a couple of years and they have held up well, the pants just ripped in the crotch... gives me an excuse to go for leathers with pucks as textile / mesh pants dont do well for knee down stuff haha.

I love my joe rocket Pheonix 5.0 (Common dude....it's even got the same name).

For pants I run the alter ego. some mesh, some textile. Or i run draggin jeans and external knee pads.


I also use the tryonic see + back protector. Offers great protection while not feeling bulky. It breathes well for a back protector. And is very flexible and comfortable. including bending forwards or back. very important for people with high arch backs.

PV, do some research, if I can find the document I'll share it but in anything over 85* to 90* or so mesh is counter productive, it will raise your core temp.

I run a Scorpion Hat Trick jacket which is a mesh outer and two removable liners. I love it. I can't speak for the Gen2 version but imagine it is good as well. I also have the EXO pants that are mesh. Very good as well. Both are waterproof, wind proof and warm in cold weather. By far the best gear I've owned.

I wear my Coretech mesh jacket even in the hottest weather here in SoCal.

The mesh shades my skin and reduces dehydration.

Better then just a t-shirt.

I'll second the Scorpion Hat Trick. I wear it all summer here in NC and it is super comfortable and quality made. The British Motorcycle Gear Zodiac jacket looks interesting to me as well. I have the Discovery jacket for winter and absolutely love it... the quality of the zodiac should be the same.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, keep them coming.

I don't need the mesh gear to pull double duty. I have plenty of cold/rain gear lol. I now need mesh gear that I can wear over my "office" clothes when I commute for my internship.

I really like my Revit Tornado jacket and pants. During the summer I wore it over work clothes and everything held up well. Plenty of airflow and includes sastec armor in the elbows and shoulders. I had to buy a separate back protector though. It also comes with a cold/rain liner which kept me warm and dry as I rode up to the top of Mt Washington through the clouds on a 45 deg day.

You can try to rock one of these jackets. Mens Motorcycle Jackets - Biker Jacket Galore

I have the meth jacket, it actually holds up quite well. Mesh IMO is only good for summer time, it allows for good air flow.

I bought a cycle gear bilt mesh jacket a few years ago, must have been cut to fit an alien. Piece o crap. Sent it back and got a fieldsheer mesh that I really like. Couldn't even begin to tell you what model, it's a few years old and was a dicing inured model. So I guess I'm no help what so ever.

Contact me for AMSOIL products!

If it ain't broke, keep fixing it 'till it is...

I wish CycleGear would not focus so much on the Bilt brand.

Got a pair of Bilt mesh gloves and they HURT so bad, I had to return them. They are clearly cheaply made. I've worn XL gloves in a few brands and never had such a crappy pair.

The only good thing I've seen from Bilt is the price.


OP, I've use Joe Rocket and Icon, both work great. The Icon doesn't have pocket, but still works great.

I'll 2nd the Cortech mesh. It's great in the Florida heat and mine came with two liners, one for rain and a quilted one if it gets cold. Comes with back, shoulder and elbow pads. Very good jacket.

I haven't seen anything "Bilt" that I would actually trust with my skin. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for. Here's my summer gloves - super comfort and beefy too.

REV'IT Dirt 2 Gloves - RevZilla

Mine are 4 years old and going strong.

ReV'it! is good gear. Sas-Tec is good armor. I also prefer the added strength of textile gear with mesh panels as opposed to all-mesh designs.
