ATGATT sucked for me today

It's a smoldering 95 degrees fahrenheit in Austin Texas and I was sweating like a pedophile on a playground. Stop and go traffic was brutal.

I still had the liner in my jacket today and it was perfect! But I also didn't have any traffic to deal with..

Luck favors the prepared.

Ah, spring in Texas. It was 97 today in San Antonio. Yesterday was 99. Beat the 98 degree record for April 27th that was set in 1898! Can't wait for August. But wait - we'll be in Maine and it won't matter to us.

Fortunately for me, as I leave work I am on the highway rolling 70 MPH within a half mile. Once I get off, I have about 2 miles home with only a couple of lights and they usually are green. Most days I am rolling from work to home so the heat does not get to me. Sittin still at the lights are brutal in the 90's+.

Free flowing mesh gear, a cooling vest maybe, and cool max type base layer will go a long ways toward comfort. Stop and go traffic in the heat is never that comfortable. Still using my heated gear here.

Thinking of picking up a cooling vest for the summer to wear under my mesh jacket. Anyone have one of these? I've read reviews from people who swear by them.

If you think that xx degrees F is HOT - wait till you're in the Emergency Dept after sliding down the highway in your shorts....
