Got my new adventure/rally jacket today. Ordered an XL thinking id need a little extra room if I wanted to wear a core saver under it. Well the xl is ginormous...I could fit an entire pressure suit under it if I wanted too...I don't want to. So hopefully there is a large left I can swap it with.

I can zoom in on my iPad, kinda looks like a Valdez Parka and he's got Togwotee gloves, or the ones above them, plus I'm guessing the Fuel Pack on... Thanks RumRunner fo the tease!! Oh... Have you tried The Kracken??

It's not bad, a good mixer (great in a Mojito) and not too bad on its own - sweeter than Zacapa! but I won't say it is a sipper.

I don't fall often, but I don't seem to fall well, and what I wear is comfortable enough for me that I have no complaints. Unless it's really hot. Then I complain.
Hi.... I have just recently procured a BMW R1200 GS & am planning to get the rallye 3 jacket. Does anybody have any info if the same can be worn during the HOT & Humid Indian Summer conditions?????

I sold my Rallye 2 suit to get the Klim Gear. As many other Klim proponents have noted, it is not a benefit to have goretex liners *under* the jacket and pants. I like my Klim jacket much more than the BMW jacket, and feel I got my money's worth. However, hot & humid weather are not the ideal conditions for Klim's jacket. Anything less than 75 degrees, and I'm all good.

I found the same thing Seth. My XL was definitely too big for me, and we're probably about the same size, I'd guess. I haven't had the chance to try on a Large yet - post back if you get a chance for comparison.
