[QUOTE=JRWooden;18995837My current summer jacket is a Olympia Bushwacker which as mesh front, mesh on inner arms, and partial mesh on the back. While I understand the concept that a textile/non-mesh jacket allows you to control air flow and prolong the "cooling power" of evaporative cooling[/QUOTE]

I have ridden in high temperature with high humidity before/during/after rain in Texas summer heat.

I find I am more comfortable in the high humidity with both the LDComfort long sleeves and long pants.
I could feel the humidity difference on my exposed skin, when I had the LDComfort short sleeve and short pants . Now I just ride long sleeves/pants in high high humidity.

I have Motoport Kevlar Mesh pants and jackets.
I ride a Honda Silverwing (good front fairing) and Clearview X-Large windshield which helps reduce
the direct airflow. My arms are are mostly exposed and dry quicker then the rest behind the fairing
and windshield.

The LDComfort still works very well, just it will dry out quicker.
You just have to recharge (add more water) more frequently.
