Dainese Rainsun D-Dry jacket with the outer removed during the day.
It's like riding with a giant air drier blowing at me, but better than ending like a sous vide steak.

Dainese jacket and pants for summer, and Rukka gear for winter.

Quite a few companies are doing single layer jeans these days, often with CE approved slide times equal to or higher than leather. Resurgence now do a single layer with a tested slide time of around 11 seconds

I use a pair of rokkertech pretty much year round, in winter I'll throw on a pair of merino leggings if it's cold and in the wet a pair of army goretex over trousers.

If there's no rain usually aramid lined hoodie with d30 armour or if it's going to be wet goretex textile.

I have an older model Dainese Mash jacket I am using for a few years. A couple of washes a year and it looks and smells OK. Very light with a lot of airflow. Has elbow and shoulder armor and is well made for daily use.

When going on a more spirited/demanding ride, I wear leathers. Sweaty but safe.

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

Dainese doesn't fit me! I'm to **** big! For the summer months I have an old Fieldsheer mesh with hard plastics, mid seasons I wear a Scorpion textile jacket, and I have my JR leather jacket for colder weather or if I am feeling real saucy. I have some old textile pants and a new pair of mesh pants I really like now. All my gear is rather old but still serves its purpose!
