The ASW jacket - what's the ventilation like for hot climates?
ASW vented jackets and pants are constructed of a mesh material and are therefore really vented.
There are 2 schools of thoughts.
One is to have fully vented gear but in dry sahara heat, some say it might actually dehydrate you. The thought does have merit but I never experimented issues up till 113deg F.
