My boss has a Joe Rocket ballistic jacket, and loves it! I have a Tourmaster Transition II jacket and love it until Fall, then I use my Olympia cordura 3/4 length coat, and love it!

I have the Joe Rocket Phoenix Ion Jacket and am very pleased with it. Leather is not Florida during the summer IMO. The jacket has a water proof liner and a vest for cooler weather. Also it has high reflectivity at night. Check out the link: http://joerocket.com/catalog/index.c...on_Mesh_Jacket I got the murdered out version.

Joe Rocket is one off the most trust worth brand for the motorcycle riders. There are few things i have to sum up motorcycle riders are confused about.
When it comes to the motorcycle safety i don't think so there is any other better option other then motorcycle leather jacket fully equipped with the armors.
A Good mesh jacket can also provide you protection during ride but not upto the level of leather jacket and same happens in the case of textile jackets.
So don't mixed up the things and try to wear the best avaible options suits to your riding condition.
A track rider can't continue safe ride with textile jackets vice versa a long distance rider is not be comfortable with the Leather jacket as much as it is with textile.

I can wear my leather all day, hours upon hours as long as there is wind through it !
Mine has a mesh liner, sealed/colored leather.
I think it depends on the color you have. Dark colors hold heat/absorb sun light.
Mine is white and blue. Don't get me wrong, 90+ degrees is hot reguardless even if you have a tee shirt.

my joe rocket UFO jacket came with a removable waterproof lining. so I can use it most of the year. Im only riding in town. doesn't go well with my current rider (a 250cc) with all the racing factory tags and such but its pretty comfortable, breathe-able, and has the protection. I also like that I can adjust the arm and lower back to snug.
