It is difficult to see how it will work, as there are no detail photos of the product. I have seen drawings though. Basically, it is a Schoeller Kevlar mesh jacket with armor, pockets, etc. There is also a 2nd lightweight, waterproof stretch
Gore-Tex jacket that goes over the mesh jacket. It is supposed to integrate with it in some ways, so that it fits over it more precisely.
This will not be as high-functioning as a non-mesh setup in cold / rain, but that construction will not work as well in sweltering heat either. For many places in the western US, rain is a seasonal thing, and the Adventure Air will be excellent.
I will get some more info today.
