Protectors

Hello again Matteo,

hard track / raid jacket question

leather versus tenax

Hi Matteo,
I have a question regarding the choice of leather versus tenax in the crash areas of the jackets (shoulders, elbows): why do the what I consider the higher end jackets like the Ergo 365...

Badlands is off the short list

Why? Cause I bought one after much deliberating and humming and hawwing and some more deliberating not to mention lots of research. To make a long story short: the Badlands doesn't fit me.

Absolutely right.

KTM is a business with the sole intention of selling bikes and the fact is that this recipe sells better than the 950/990 recipe. If I were a share holder, I would applaud this...

I don't agree with the assessment that wearers of Klim gear are snobs. To me a snob is someone who buys stuff to impress other people (others might call that insecure; both terms apply in my mind)....

Eek I don't get it
