I've had mine for about 3 months now and love it. I came from having a Rallye 3 for a year and then a Latitude and Latitude Misano. None of them compare to the durability of the Badlands fabric. It's tough as nails but i find it about as heavy as my R3 jacket, but never put them on a scale so I could be wrong. The thumb loops on the sleeve are awesome in the cold and the Velcro tabs to hold open the collar are great in warm weather. I'm not too crazy about the chest pads, but I take them out when riding around town. It definitely breathes better than the Latitude, but I'm pretty sure it'll be out away for summer he in AZ. I bought mine used for $650 from an inmate who claimed to have worn it once and after having used it for the past 3 months, I'm certain I would pay full price for it if I had to. Realistically, it could probably be passed down to your kids because its so damn tough.
