See this following article from the Ironbutt Magazine: http://www.ironbutt.com/ibmagazine/I..._62-66_Hot.pdf

Depending on your jacket, you'll probably need a vent or two open to get the evaporative effect, regardless of what the LDComfort people say.
Hey, ph0rk, thanks for posting that link. That made for some interesting reading, and now it makes sense to me why I usually felt like I was cooler underway with a crudely vented patrol jacket than with my mesh jacket.
