 Recommendations for hot weather 2 piece flight suit?

Hello! I’m new! I’m curious if anyone has specific recommendations for 2 piece flight suits that do well in hot weather. I live in SoCal.
If I get a mostly cotton scrub, will it be durable enough? I worry about heat issues with polyester. What fabric content works well?

If the scrubs are v neck, do you have issues with the flak vest (out of a stiffer material)  rubbing against your neck??

I have been trooping since 2012 using scrubs. I live in Florida, so yeah...I get the heat thing! I use scrub pants and a labcoat with long sleeves - non stretchy material. I wash it immediately after trooping in cold water with no fabric softener or anything. I hang it to dry and have never had a problem with it. I've lost count, but I'm pretty sure I'm between 60 and 70 troops in it by now.  :D

Do you know what the fabric content is on your scrubs? :)

Sadly, no. I cut the tags out years ago. I know they feel like a poly/cotton blend. No stretch at all, and very light weight. More unisex than the current women's scrubs. I shopped for new ones this past year in hopes of making a second kit, but the women's styles felt super spandex-y and I didn't like them.

Yeah I’m having some issues finding a good blend. The majority of them are heavily polyester...
