Hello Everyone!

As you can see in my profile, i am living in a Tropical country where the weather is crazy... during the day, the temperature is around 90 and 96 Fahrenheit and with humidity of 88%.... and then the rain comes with just a couple of clouds... we have like 9 Months with rain and 3 months with sun.... so our winter is not snow, it is only more rain than normal...

I am using right know a textile waterproof jacket that it is cooking me while riding, so now i am looking to buy a mesh jacket and just keep a waterproof liner in my backpack (like those used by pizza guys) just in case i got caught by rain and don't have time to find a roof to stay ...

So i am looking to the below options..... what do you think?? or maybe anything else near that price range?...

I got a scorpion EXO textile jacket first and when the weather is cold it's FANTASIC, in the heat though it's like a sauna. I recently got a synthetic materials jacket with a waterproof liner that's removable and has many vents. this is still kinda hot when it's warm out but when i'm moving the vents keep me MUCH cooler than the textile jacket did and it has more adjustments to hug it close to your body at elbows, bicep, waist. This jacket makes the protective pads stay where they are supposed to. It won't keep out the rain as well as the textile jacket but it is cooler.
My seuggestion is to try them on before you buy, you might regret it otherwise
