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.

Thanks for the feedback on the two. I have about 12 k miles on my Olympic MotoX and knock on wood never crash tested. I am leaning toward the Badland just due to the waterproof shell and no zipping liners and such. The motox is very nice on those hot summer days the way the zip down panels work but there is also no front armor.
