mesh jackets question

I understand why mesh is a bad idea in extreme heat. But if I'm on a long trip with variable weather in July or August, is there a way to make the mesh work?

I took a long trip with my Olympia mesh jacket and Tourmaster mesh pants. I used a CamelBak and soaked my Nike DriFit shirt at every fuel stop. That seemed to work. Should I be wearing a long-sleeved shirt?

My next trip will include a Fieldsheer evap vest.

When I say variable weather, I mean Jasper, Canada to the Badlands in SD and points hot and cold in between.

Thanks for any advice sent this way!
