I'm ordering a Badlands Pro jacket and Latitude pants this fall to replace my Rallye Pro 2 suit. So tired of having to screw around w/ liners when it rains and since we're planning a move to the PNW, I suspect it'll be raining a lot. I like the Latitude pants better than the Badlands Pro based upon what I've seen online. If I get a chance to see 'em both before purchasing I might change my mind.

Helps with your posture and your back/abs don't have to work as hard all day.

If you're pounding out 700 to 1,000 mile days, they really help.

The other thing about an integrated kidney belt is that it helps carry some of the weight of the jacket. I often just attach the integrated kidney belt on my Adventure jacket w/o using the shoulder harness and it is very effective. 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.

Which is fine with me, because it doesn't start getting cool enough around here to ride in a suit like that until November, anyway.
Cold? Can't you just roll up the windows and turn on the heater in your Mini?

mmhmm ok,
I was hoping perhaps that someone (like you) had some more information....

"CE-rated integrated armor system" is rather vague and could, apparently range from a cheese and red cabbage sammich to forcefieldT-Pro armor.

it does not appear to be the 3d0 armor that is in the badlands pro
"D3O CE-rated integrated limb and back panel armor system [Viper Pro Level II back armor}"

A quick Google search came up with a picture of the armour available.
