I used to use just a kidney belt in my Harley days, and it was great...but the integrated unit in the KLIM stuff is better. I am looking at the badlands jacket to replace my Adventure jacket because I dont need the Leatte collar, dont need all the pockets on the back, and it looks like the Badlands has better venting.
