    At 10% humidity if you want to cool off all you need is a spray bottle of water. If any kind of breeze is blowing or you have a fan you can give yourself goosebumps in about 30 seconds. Soak your t-shirt under mesh gear and you'll be shivering in 3 minutes at 30mph.

    I got this a few years back on sale for $29.95 BILT - Bilt Cooling H2O Vest - Tops - Base Layers - Biker - Cycle Gear and have an underarmor heat gear shirt on it stays wet for a few hours and sock it again.

    I have a 2 vests, a jacket, and a hat. They are full of the same water crystals sold for gardening. Wonderful for low humidity riding. I wear 1 vest or jacket and keep the other 2 in Ziplocs with water. On the highway under mesh they take twice as long to soak up water as it does to dry them out, so 1 on, 2 soaking works for me. Some folks use ice water, but I find putting on something that cold makes my muscles cramp. After all, it's the evaporation that does the cooling, not the low water temperature. I really like the outback style hat with the crystals for setting up camp before the night chill arrives. Most folks who've never been out west don't realize 98*F afternoon temps can drop into the 40s most every night in some places. I've seen 27* in the morning, 101* that afternoon, 95* while setting up camp just before dark, and 26* about 10:00PM when I turned in. If you work up a sweat pitching camp, and the evening cold catches you damp, you're in for a long, miserable night.

    Front comes through, you get gorgeous riding weather, I get tornado warnings. I knew I hated you for a reason.
