Summer is here, and so is the hot weather. Sweat can be your best friend or your worst enemy - it keeps your body cool, but it can also be extremely uncomfortable when riding your bike. One of my favorite life tips is to make sure you have the right tools for the job, so it’s important to invest in weather-appropriate motorcycle gear that is made for the heat. Check out my top finds on Amazon for hitting the open road this summer:
There are a ton of different neck gaiters on the market that you can use to keep the dust off your skin while biking, but investing in one that keeps you cool is a game changer. It’s time to ditch your wet bandana, because at $10, this Cooling Neck Gaiter & Face Mask from Amazon is not only budget friendly, but is also breathable, moisture-wicking, windproof, dustproof, and keeps your skin out of the sun. Simply moisten it with water, wring it out, and throw it on. The slim design fits great under a helmet and is super compact for storing when not in use.
Make hot weather riding more enjoyable with this cooling vest by Ergodyne. Simply soak the vest in water for 2-5 minutes and you’ll stay cool for up to four hours. The mesh side panels provide additional breathability and mobility, and the sizing is generous.
This CE approved (level A) hard-working motorcycle shirt is perfect for the summer heat. Not only will it keep you safe with its DuPont Kevlar lining, it also has excellent breathability with its fixed mesh lining that allows air to circulate freely and stops the inner linings from sticking to your skin in hot weather. Other great features include CE Level 2 shoulder and elbow protectors as well as two exterior and two internal pockets.
