    Hi everyone!

    I have just got a brand new 2019 Svart, and would like to match the gear I am going to use. I got the Husky Eliminator helmet and Restless Mind Gloves. I’d like to add the Pilen Jacket, but I am pretty unsure about its use in warm weather. It is described as a jacket for year round usage, but I think that may be right for a mild weather country. I live in the Dominican republic, in the Caribbean, so it’s pretty hot down here.

    Do any of you have experience with the Pilen  jacket? Your comments are appreciated!!!


    Its bulky.  Its not hot like leather or older gear, but there’s limited ventilation, perfect for the Pacific Northwest, but I would think it’d be too hot for the DR but not to the point of being unusable.


    Thanks to all. I bought the Revit GT-R Air 2 mesh jacket, and it’s resulting quite appropriate for this hot/hellish weather.
