That's a pretty good price for a set of track leathers, but lack of perforation will really make you melt inside the suit. I use the below suit for cruises and track days. Fieldsheer Radar 2-piece. Picked it up for $200 during a special. It proved comfortable during this particular track day.

I have a Teknic 2-piece non-perforated as well that I used during another track day, and I was dripping buckets inside that suit.

My buddy has the Alpinestars GP Plus jacket which has less perforation than the GP Pro. In Missouri, our average temperatures are close to, if not hotter, than yours and he never complains about being too hot.

I think that the GP Pro would have plenty of airflow for you and if you can get one for under $400, thats a ******************** good deal.

I have this jacket in the non perf version. Its a real nice jacket and I've worn it in the 30-40F temperature range. Leather gets cold and will also make the inside of the jacket slightly cooler. Id still suggest to layer cloths underneath, but not absolutely necessary. It also fits a bit tighter than other jackets in the A* lineup, so if you want to layer, get a size larger. Im 5'9 and 150lbs and a EU size 50 fits very snug, not even sure i could layer if i wanted to. Also if you plan to replace armor, definitely go one size up.

Revzilla has the Alpinestars GP plus full perf on close out for $259.99. They offer free shipping on orders over $39.99, and I've had great dealings with them in the past. I just bought it for our unforgiving hot, humid summers here in South Carolina. When I get a chance to try it it, I'll post a review.

That's a great deal on that jacket... which color did you order?

For anyone who's interested, here's what Revzilla has for non-current Alpinestars Jackets on closeout: Alpinestars on Sale - Discount Alpinestars Clothing - RevZilla
Definitely some nice deals to be had this time of year.

It sure is a great deal, that's why I couldn't pass it up. I'd been looking for a quality perf leather for a while, but I didn't want all black as my VFR is black. I ordered the white/black version to provide a little more visibility and to absorb a little less heat...
