I recently purchased from www.goaz.com headliner, both long and short sleeve shirts and pants ... so I could experiment.

I wore the headliner the entire time.

The long sleeve shirt and pants did great. On the day ride out I ran into rain (originally without rain gear) and high humidity ... I was very comfortable.

Then for two day local riding around St Louis with high humidity, I wore the short sleeve shirt and shorts. I was comfortable all day without any additional soaking (except my headliner) though I noticed I felt the heat and humidity on uncovered skin. So the LDComfort did great to reduce the high humidity discomfort too!!

I wore the long sleeve shirt and pants for return two-day trip home with temperature around mid-90s.

I found the evaporation with my mesh jacket ( which is not the optimal because it causes faster evaporation ) would last ~90 minutes.

I found the evaporation with my mesh pants would last ~120 minutes ... longer because of the fairing protection.
