So I spent about 7 hours yesterday reading all 57 pages of this thread.....as a result I had a headache, my wife is ignoring me (payback for yesterday), and my vision is somewhat blurry.

I live in Toronto, Canada and after having a few different leather and nylon jackets that never fit properly and were always short of being what I really needed I am really looking forward to ordering the Ultra II or the Riva.

The website sure needs a lot of work so I am grateful to the members that have posted there opinions, blogs, pics, and rants about this stuff.

I have e-mailed Wayne at Cycleport with a few questions that I will also post here if some of you could answer for me.

I plan on ordering the Aero-Tex WBW liner (non-insulated) with the jacket but I am confused about the two Kevlars; Air-Mesh & Stretch Kevlar

1) I will be riding from 40F to 90F......here in Toronto the killer is the humidity and can raise temps about 15F to 105F.......and when I travel North even in July the temps will fall to the low 40's............so Mesh or Stretch(with the WBW liner)???

2) How much stiffer is the Mesh......I know some have described it as a "cheese grater"??? Does this mean that the Stretch Kevlar is soft?

3) I was considering flying out with my wife to San Diego to get measured up at Cycleport but with the cheapest flight being $1300 for the both of us I am considering recording myself and my wife measuring ourselves since I've read a few pages of "measurement issues"..........is this too over-the-top?

Thank you in advance for replies to my Q's
