Had it on for many a day last summer while riding across Canada on my modern Bonneville. You give it a full soak and wear beneath your vented jacket, I had a Triumph brand full mesh with armour. Works a treat at speed and even when walking a bout in the heat. Stays moist for a good few hours before a resoak needed.
For. Leggings, I typically use Saint brand Model 1 pants with knee and hip armour. These are CE level 2 rated. Have single layer Spectra material, which is slide rated for 6 seconds, which is on par with leather. But spectra is highly breathable and there is no liner to the pants.
Last weekend I rode with a guy across the desert in 100 degree heat from Mancos, CO to Torrey, UT and a couple guys at the gathering had these. They said they really work great, I was wearing my leather jacket and was ok as long as we kept moving. But I think they seem like a great idea in really hot weather. Going to look into getting one, the thing I like is they are easy to pack. Chuck.
