As the mesh in my veil now has a few holes in it (I thought it was odd that the bees were on the inside) and the elastic on waist has lost its snap (so I have to eat more donuts to take up the extra space), I have decided to buy a new jacket and retire my current jacket to "spare in the trunk" status.

But which jacket? And what size, I am 5' 10" so maybe L but I also where XL shirts? I thought I would ask my fellow BKs what they have tried and liked, and not liked. As I use an old pair of cargo pants as the pants I will be looking just for a jacket, not a full body suit.

Thanks Tim, that is useful info. I have thought about the various high ventilation jackets but had wondered about durability. I will check out that model, might make a nice Christmas pressie :)

I use the Pro Vent Jacket Mann Lake sells them for around 119.00 I really like it. Seems to hold up well and stays fairly cool.
