If Atgatt and Actar911 opinions are worth two cents each, then mine is probably around a half a cent, but here it is.
I have had a Fieldsheer mesh jacket for 6 years now and it works very well. It is my only bike jacket. When it gets cold, I do what the others spoke of - I put a windproof, water proof, breathable jacket on top of, and maybe a fleece top underneath, the mesh. It's worked great down to about 25F. Fieldsheer tends to run somewhat baggy - a problem because the armor moves around. I had to do some sewing to take it in so it fit snuggly. If you don't have the sewing skills (or know someone who does) I'd suggest you find one to try on before you buy.
I also was given a set of Fieldsheer saddlebags and am happy with them too. I think Fieldsheer gives good quality products.
'hope this helps.
