Default Light weight summer jackets

Hi all,

I'm going to Italy for a few weeks and I expect the weather will be very hot. I don't want to wear the heavy jacket, even with the lining removed. I've seen jackets that look like spider man outfits, they have the shoulder and back padding etc. But are they any good? One shop in Dublin is selling them for 100 euro. Will they be junk? Thanks.

For 100yoyos id say theyd be poor enough, knox do decent ones for not a huge price, worth looking at.

Spada Airflow Jacket Size L (I'm 6'4" and it really does not fit me)

I've one of these you might be interested in. 50 squid would do me ... seems a good enough jacket.

Rst ventilator is the bees knees, think they are on version 5 now.
Pick up a version 3 or 4 cheap off some websites with old stock.

Ots an outer lightweight jacket, removable rain/wind layer and removable insulation layer.

I have the 2nd version and its the most versatile jacket I own...
