The company has been awesome to deal with except their inventory on their web site might be a little off.

Anyway the XL Supvervent is a little big but useable. Not a lot of protection but better than none at all and will probably be my daily driver. The other pair of the XL's are damaged- the velcro strap on the wrist has seperated so I am working a trade with them. The Teknic lightning glove is AWESOME! And it was the one I was least wanting. But I will use them when out playing with the boys.

Also I want to add about the Tekinc jacket in my earlier post from Motorcycle Closeouts. I got the jacket today, size 44. I am 6' 160 pounds and fits me perfect. Definitely the short waisted sport style. What a great deal on a Fall/Winter waterproof jacket for $50. The only beef I have is the Winter liner does not go down the arms, only the waist. Looks great and a great price.

Got another package a few minutes ago. I think they (Extreme Supply) are a little disorganized but it might be working in my favor.

DCL CT, I might end up with an extra pair of Supervent size XL. If I do your on my list. Being in CT though you might not get much use since they are definitely for hot weather.

Well they don't have any gauntlet gloves like I need... But I'll snag a pair of their waterproof ones on motorcycle closeouts.
Also, thoughts on this jacket? : http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com/h...leather+jacket
I already have a Joe Rocket textile and mesh. The mesh is great for any heat obviously.... The Textile is good for high 50's before I have to start layering beneath it.
Do you think this jacket would keep me warmer than the textile?

I'm not sure which textile you have. But I looked at the jacket in your link and in the title it says "perforated" and I also didn't see where it had a zip in/out liner for warmth. So I am thinking this one isn't meant to keep you too warm.

I wished I could find an affordable leather one that looked a lot less "motorcycleish".

I figured as much. I've just never used a leather one so I have no idea what it's like. Oh well... I didn't neeed one anyways.
