I live in warm San Diego, and am looking for a jacket I can use year round. Leather/mesh jackets appears to be the most protective iteration of warm weather jackets, at the expense of some air flow. Which jackets in this genre would you recommend? I'm currently looking at last years Cortech GX Air Leather/Mesh, which appears to still be available for about $180 (bikebandit.com/product/6149?WT.mc_id=666111). What else is out there with comparable protection and cooling?
