who makes the rallye pro jacket for bmw?

Dumb question time... just curious for no particular reason

I did the Google thing, pages and pages of sites trying to sell me one...

I limited the search to ADVRIDER... pages and pages of interesting but not relevant to my question info

So... who makes the Rallye Pro jacket for BMW?
(looking for the company.. not the country)

Who else do they manufacture for?

thanks in advance

No idea, but my guess is that there is some sort of confidentiality agreement in place. Secondly, the garment factory that makes them probably has no need to advertise on Google because they aren't in the retail market space. That being said, if you do find out, please let us know.

There was a write up here a few years ago that showed compelling evidence that Tourmaster boots and CycleGear boots were the same boots, but rebranded. Found it: http://dryohe.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/value-gearbilt-adventure-boots/

So I think your suspicions are probably correct- there are several brands originating from the same factory

Stadler used to make clothes for BMW brand.
Not sure if that is still true.

Not the jacket, of course, but Oxtar (TCX) used to and still might manufacture at least some of the BMW boots.

Not a dumb question at all. I was just wondering the same thing. IMHO its one awesome looking suit. I would purchase one if it didnt have the BMW logo on it- only because I currently dont own a bimmer.

thanks all for your input...

I have heard Held do some of the wintergloves and that TCX / Gaerne do / did some of the boots... Stadler for some clothing...

but still no leads on the jackets...

When the insanely overpriced rally pro 2 gear was in the bmw dealer, a peep at the label revealed differing countries of manufacture, i.e. indonesia and vietnam. From that i would assume that many different brands come out of the same factories. I opted for aussie made tiger angel, seven years on and still great.

I read that Stadler makes the Companero suit for Touratech.

i agree vagueout... with the top dollar being asked / designed into jackets from a number of vendors these days.. the product is so niche you would think there would have to be a single manufacturer or maybe 2? out there producing this stuff?

i have only heard good things of the tigerangel product

Very interesting. Thanks, Gorstak. It's great to have people from everywhere on this forum!
Next question, of course: does this company sell any of the stuff it makes for BMW in their stores, or at their factory? I didn't see motorbike clothing in their online collection.
And a related question: the Atlantis 4 was made in Bosnia, one country over. Are these manufacturers in any way related (both being in former Yugoslavia)?

Kadinjaca is not making any other motorcycle gear. And they do not sell it. They are not connected with bosinan manufacturer.

They actually developed it together.
