Your mesh coat is part of your problem. When the air temp is higher than skin temp, a out 93-95F, limited ventilation on an evaporative layer will cool you better than more ventilation.
Swap that shirt for a cooling vest and don't wear the mesh. Bilt has one cooling vest, there are others. Or keep the shirt and get the vest. The vest has polymer material that holds a lot of water which evaporates and cools the wearer. A dampened cotton tee shirt works but holds little water. A wetted sweatshirt holds more water and cools longer, but not as long as the cooling vests.
This is for the dry western heat. Humid eastern heat needs lots of ventilation to try and evaporate the sweat.
