If I am touring this is the jacket that is going with me. If I am playing around town I choose a full mesh jacket when it gets above 80. Overall, the Badlands does a very good job of venting. The arm vents in combination with the pit vents and exhaust vent in back do flow quite a bit of air.
Great! Thanks for the feedback. So you are OK using this jacket for touring? I take long trips on my RT (a couple days at a time) looking for one suit to do it all, instead of a mesh jacket with 3 different liners.
