I am thinking of buying summer gear, last year I just went without a jacket and my head was sweating like crazy in my helmet. This year I want to buy a mesh jacket and a lighter colored helmet for summer riding. I have a 2012 Vaquero SE(which is neon green and black), I am considering buying a high viz jacket and helm that are the greenish yellow neon or I could get a silver jacket and helm. No matter which color I decide on the jacket would be the Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0, but if I go high viz it would be a Fly Tourist Vista helm and for silver it would be a Speed and Strength SS650 helm. The price difference is only $9.00 so that will not sway me one way or the other. With the Fly helm I would have to switch shields for riding on sunny days, but that is just a minor inconvenience. I know that high viz would be better than silver(at least in theory), but which would be cooler(like I said summer wear)? Also, if you would recommend one helm over the other, could you give reasons why?
Thanks for any input you can give me.
