White..harder to keep clean, but your skin temperature will be something like 15 degrees cooler in direct sunlight on a hot dat. I'd go for white IMO.

I recently got that same jacket in Black. Black is easier to keep clean and it looks sic!

I'm in TX as well.

As far as the temp tolerances, I'd say 40's - 80's. When it was in the 80's out, it was only hot at complete stops, but felt great when moving. This morning for example though, in the 40's, I was able to wear thermals and it's liner and be fine for about 40 min.

Fantastic brand, so far I love their stuff!
