Looking for something that'll cover the belt if I decide to wear a holster, also considering chest carrying a Glock 17 in a pocket or sewn holster.

It's pretty hot in Florida and I should really be wearing something better than a t-shirt. At night I'll throw on a BDU top (sleeves up) but I'm not sure what gear to get. I'm 6-2 220 and finding gear that is long and loose enough is tough.

I don't think a leather jacket would be practical at all, nor those winter jacket looking textiles. If I wear a leather vest I may as well just wear a plate carrier with steel inserts. While mesh jackets feel like chain mail, Harley has one I can get for a discount.

What does everyone else wear when it's 95F and humid? Even if it isn't long, I may be asking too much here.

I may get a leather jacket but I'd really only be wearing it comfortably for two months out of the year, then another two months mainly as a wind barrier.

The alternative is to wear polyester t-shirts so I don't get off the bike drenched in sweat. Dried salt maybe.

my macna jacket has plenty of ventilation as long as I am moving. I commute in it every day in the 90% humidity and mid 90's heat every day.

The Tourmaster Sonora Air is a mesh jacket that is 3/4 length. Most mesh are waist length.

It could be a 3 season jacket with the included liners....In FL probably a year round jacket actually
