Thanks for this review. After wearing my AST all fall, winter and spring, I'm having a hard time going back to my Tourmaster Venture mesh jacket for summer. I want mesh for comfort, but I want stronger impact areas (like my AST has). I looked at the Olympia Airglide, but the 500D cordura on the elbows seems to too light (especally since my ast has 2000D cordura in the same place). I didn't even look at the transition jacket (because I only need a hot weather jacket). This one seems to offer the ast-like protection in the impact areas with mesh comfort. It looks like it will be a little warmer then either my Tourmaster or the airglide. I like the grey/neon too.
airglide or transition.....decisions decisions
