are you just curious about the pants? or jacket as well?

I've got a Traverse jacket, and I really like it, but it doesn't vent all that well. all it has is under-arm vents, which, in riding position, are pushed closed. You have to hold up your arms a bit (bow them out) to get the vents to open up and air to flow. Thankfully its not a heavy jacket to begin with, so even with armor, its not terribly hot. Its been hot around here recently (90's) and it hasn't been terribly uncomfortable while underway. Sitting on the tarmac at a traffic light .... thats another story.

Can't speak to the pants, I've got Latitudes.
