They get hot all year round!

I had a heatstroke once on the track. Drink your gatorade. Water just doesn't do the trick.

How are armored textile items?
I have a textile Joe Rocket jacket, leather reinforcment where the armor is. I like it so far, just wondering how they compare to full leathers.

Full leathers will hold up in most crashes and ready to be used against, most textile/meshies will take a beating and will have to be replaced.

Get perforated leather. It does a pretty good job as long as you're moving

I ahve to agree with HOOLIGAN. I have a Icon all leather jacket and its got hoels on the sleeves and sides. No problem when you are going. Always where a Tee under this will help refresh you.

I agree with R1Hooligan, perforated leathers and UnderArmor and you'll be fine.

Also choose your leather color wisely. I have an all black suit and a yellow suit.Black suit does not come out on the 100+ days.
