    Any venting? Im thinking stopped in traffic for more than 30 minutes could be tough.

    It depends on venting, what you wear under it, and lots of other issues I'm sure. If you're comfortable in it in Florida, I'm thinking Tennessee won't be much different.

    I have a BMW Atlantis suit, and it's not what you call a 'cool' suit, but I survived Morocco in it. Nice thing about the Atlantis is that it is not too tight. That allows air to circulate (I always help that by loosening the sleeve at the wrists and put my hand in the airstream to scoop up air).
    Remember the Bedoins wear heavy black fabrics in the Sahara and are not sweating it...it is loose. Don't wear thight clothing in hot conditions.
