Ventz Air Flow System for jackets

My brother just passed this one to me. Has anyone seen these?

I would suspect they would not get much air past the elbows if the jacket fits tight enough to hold the elbow armor in place.

No I have never seen one of those! Awesome idea! I like the screen for bugs!

Just got a bee down the jacket the other day. Some how got down my neck. Fluck I hate that. Got me three good times.

That might really help the air flow!

Great idea, but wonder how comfortable it is specially on the right hand side when you give throttle in the city on and off often...wish we could see the construction under.

Also, if the jacket doesnt have a back vent, on the highway you'll puff up like a blowfish.

Puff up like a blowfish! I've been laughing for a good long while after reading that comment. Brings an image something like this to mind . . .

It could not be a bee. Bees can only sting once. A wasp on the other hand is a whole different story. Recently an ugly bug got into my helmet. I was the scariest thing. It looks like a giant thing when crawling along the visor through my line of sight. The thing looked like a space invading alien about to drill into my eyeball an into my head. Fortunately I did not freak out and just slowed down and open the visor. The thing just flew off and away and not into my eye.

I have bugs while riding.

fyi If I want to vent through the sleeves of the jacket. I just open up the velcro wrist straps on the cuff to let air in . Actually, too much gets in and I quickly have to close it. That's only when I'm not wearing mesh.
