Interested in the answer to the Gore-Tex shell question...

Scorpion provides temperature ranges [which are likely conservative], and Rukka has a rather hazy temperature bar, that doesn't give actual numbers, just a bar that goes from blue to red and a general indication of where the gear is expected to fall in that range.)

As for the Infinity, thank goodness it doesn't behave like a t-shirt. They're not particularly good against road-rash ;-) And while they can be cool, wind and sun burn aren't my favorites.

I am extremely encouraged with the comments on the wicking aspect of the material. It sounds that with a solid base-layer for a given expected temperature it will give users much flexibility.

The confirmation that the only difference between the Genius and the Tempest is the gauntlet sounds like I may be looking back at the Tempest for cold and wet weather gloves. My Kelvin's tend to get rather soggy in the rain, even with the waterproof liner.

With the addition of the Gore-Tex to the stable of available materials, can we (hopefully) look forward to the possibility of Gore-Tex Pro Shell Leather gear coming from Rev'IT? (And that gear coming to the U.S.?)

Thanks again!
