Let me start with WOW!.
Here in the blazing summer of Central Spain finding ANY respite from the Sun and Heat is a challenge.
ime Most Jackets fail either with not ventilating enough or letting the sun burn due to poor protection.
I am very very pleased with my BP80. The Leather portions protect me from the Sun and the Mesh breathes very well indeed. So well it's almost too fresh first thing in the morning. I just slip a thin waistcoat on.
Rida-tec Summer jacket
Ian TREECE - Aspley Nottingham (10 June 2012)
I am 19 stone 54 chest and struggle too get any jacket or coat too fit me proper. I also sweat like a pot bellied bacon pig in a hot slaughter house. But not in this jacket, it is fuc..n brill. Perfect fit, thanks too Malc and no more sweating, even on the hottest days. Thank u Bikers Paradise, & Malc.
Best Summer Jacket Ever

I bought this jacket early 2010, just after Bikers Paradise had launched it. I already had a full leather but wanted the comfort of a perforated one whilst still retaining viscotech and leather protection.
This jacket fits unbelievebly well. This is because Bikers Paradise make what they sell and so could tailor it to me (really quickly too). The extra small fee was worth every penny. The armour is virtually undetectable. The perforations ensure you stay cool all day long and with a snug fit, one can ride however one likes. The only, and this is nit picking, issue with a perforated jacket in summer is flies. As with race leathers, flies will squish into the holes and build up pretty quickly. Once dry, they are difficult to get rid of. However, as any proud owner of leather garments knows, spray with a suitable, and cheap, leather cleaner, leave to soak in (1-2 mins)then simply wipe off all road crud. Failing that, just cover areas with damp kitchen towel for 2 mins as you would with a normal leather jacket. Wipes off just as well and is even cheaper.
Great jacket for weekend rallies and European Summer riding without the sweat. Top Tip: Get the Bikers Paradise waterproof overjacket as well. Use when evening riding is a tad chilly and you won't feel any of it.
