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.


Probably stopping every hour or two is a good idea to recharge ME as well

I've heard mixed reviews on the cooling vests, but likely will try one along with the "sleeves" from LDComfort.
The local CycleGear store has them on sale, and has 30-day money back satisfaction guarantee...
