Perforated leather pants/jacket

What do you guys recommend and where's a good place to get it? Also, I saw this MotoGP Corkscrew perforated jacket for $139.00. What do you guys think of it? Sounds like a good deal to me.

I like the look of MotoGP stuff. I've heard mixed reviews of their gear. I like the Apex pants.

I have a Joe Rocket perfortated leather/mesh jacket. I can't remember what it's called though, I'll have to look it up. It works great but I don't know how much protection the mesh provides. I was riding around a couple weeks ago when it was about 95 here and it was perfectly comfortable.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

I have an Icon Pursuit leather jacket preforated all the way around and lets in tons of air. Awsome quality, little pricey tho (320-350)

I can't comment on the pants but I have had the Corkscrew jacket for the past 2 weeks and I really like it. I'm 5'10" 185 and I got the large. It fits really wells especially now that it has broken in a bit. The warmest weather I've been in so far with it was 80 degrees. With the liner out the wind would go right through the perfs and feels really good. I have also ridden in 29 degree weather yesterday morning to work and all I had on underneath was a long sleeve shirt. Worked awesome. Wasn't cold at all. Wish my gloves worked the same way.
