Well, here in south of Portugal I wear Mesh Jacket and ventilated gloves. The biggest problem is foot wear. I wear mesh boots I've got many years ago and they give zero protection but it's the only way to survive. I also wear denim jeans with kevlar protection interior. It's not great but it at least gives some protection. The jacket is completely transparent if you try to look through it but it has all the protection hardware. The same for the gloves.
So, as for jacket and gloves, it's something like this:
DL1000 2017 white
DL1000 2014 red (sold)
DL650 2012 white (sold)

From Ebay I think they will not reach me in time.

Yeah. Even using Goretex, my feets are soaked in water. Does the mesh really offer no protection? I stumbled over https://www.motocard.com/en/blog/comparisons-and-rankings/boots/best-vented-motorcycle-boots/ and the ones I checket out seems to be CE certified. As I do not like tall boots, I think of the Alpinestars Faster-3:

Are you trying to use the 'contact us' form? If that's not working, copy and paste their e-mail address (info@ravetechmotorcycles.com) into your e-mail program.

I always prefer to use the email addresses rather than contact forms. That way, I have a record of what I've said, to whom, and when.

+1 for the mesh seat cover, they ride cooler and add a bit of comfort too. I also use a gel filled neck cooler like this, it lasts longer than wetting a neck tube.

In addition to the above posts, wearing lighter coloured gear rather than black helps a lot.

Interesting.....thought I'd try the revetech e-mail (info@ravetechmotorcycles.com) and it did bounce back with this message................

Not sure what it means. Has anyone tried to contact them lately?
