Despite the love I have for my REV’IT! Arc Air mesh jacket, I soon learned through the month of July that even a “warm weather” jacket could get suffocatingly hot when a heatwave decides to arrive.

Like many teenagers in 1980s Australia, I was a willing participant in the Japanese rotary-engined street racer phase that swept the country at the time.

On September 10th, I covered a new tech prototype that was being tested for stab-proof vests.
