Not difficult to ride in. Fits well enough over all my jackets. The vest outer isn't mesh, and it also has the inflatable bladder packed inside which (obviously) isn't mesh either. So it doesn't flow air. Having said that, subjectively it hasn't seemed to me to restrict airflow much either, against whatever jacket you're wearing underneath. So some tradeoff, but nothing that makes things uncomfortable (for me).
