    Sweet jacket!

    Man, 17C... I gotta move someplace else. Can't stand the 28C nights anymore.

    Sounds like a pain to try and sleep when it’s that hot. No AC?

    Wildcamping with the m43. This jacket is perfect in every way. Screenshot_20200705_133719_com.android.gallery3d.jpg

    Nah. I'm out a lot and avoid getting used to AC as then it'd be even worse.

    I was about to say the same. South of England, past week (and for the next at least) it rarely hit 20C at midday and it’s around 13C in the morning and 10C or lower at night, windy as hell and cloudy.

    I miss the Italian summers very much, especially when I see photos of family and friends taking a swim or enjoying a cocktail by the pool. But hey I can wear my leathers...

    I go along with that. Even when it is 45 here I generally don't use air con. At night I like a simple fan but that's it. I grew up without air con and never developed a dependency on it.

    There's something about a fan at night... Feels great. I read online that a ceiling fan is perfect at night too, but never even seen one IRL. They're rare in Europe.

    I keep trying to wear pure linen jackets, seersucker, cotton... no way. Short sleeves and cellular cotton with pure linen trousers and I still sweat buckets.

    Until late October this will be unbearable, I hate the humidity here in Barcelona. I have to sleep with all the windows open and hope for a bit of fresh air moving around.

    We only have AC in the living room and it is on only when it really is terrible.

    no AC for me either, at least not ON, just a desk fan I put on the corner hidden under my desk, its on all day 24/7, the humming sound blocks out random noise and helps me to concentrate.
     
  14. Heading much past 78-80 and my AC is on all over my house. That's why I have it, to be comfortable..plus heat ON when it gets cold. You won't find me wearing sweaters or jackets around inside my house. Cool air when it's hot...warm air when it's cold. Isn't that what it's for ? Don't care for a noisy fan blowing air. Quiet and cool is my ideal.

    I think that's pretty normal, HD, that would be the conventional view of heating and cooling.

    I hear the numbers are spiking in California again. Looks like there's still some way to go before you get rid of it. Saw some crazy 4th of july videos as well... People look fed up.
    Great fit though :D :D
