First Gear Mesh Tex jackets

I have owned 2 First Gear Mesh Tex jackets. Owned both series I and II and have crash tested both and can verify they work in slow to moderate spills. The new Mesh Tex III is out and costs about $130 or so. The mesh can and will shred on pavement, but better it than you and it is wearable in 90 deg.+ heat, although it is warmer than wearing no jacket. I feel safer wearing something vs nothing so I wear the MeshTex with no liner on hot California days.

I have given up crash testing as there is very little money in it.
