The Motoport seems to offer better protection for commuting and touring. Having both what is your review of both.
For this weekend (WARPED VIII) I would NOT have wanted the Motoport gear.

Yes, I believe the Motoport has more protection, BUT it's not all about the armor. In addition to the padding, there is abrassion resistance. I think they are equal or at least, on par with each other.

Over the past four days, I rode in pouring rain, snow and warm temperatures. The Badlands suit handled it all with zero complaints or issues for me. It kept me dry and warm, was comfortable and, when things warmed up, it vented well and kept me happy. I don't think there is a more versatile suit.
