Mesh jackets are great in the cool department, even my venerable Fieldsheer (at least 10 years old). But you loose a lot of moisture, the wind blows through, and your sweat evaporates and you sweat more and that evaporates, so you have basically become a 'human swamp cooler'. This is just fine but you have to drink a lot of water to compensate, so if it's a long trip make sure to bring some with.
Today I rode to work, 35 miles between 60 and 80 mph, and arrived thirsty as usual for this time of year, and drank at least 24 ounces of water so far.
Stay hydrated my friend!
