Klim Badlands Pro Jacket & Adv Rally Pants?

After spending countless hours confirming my initial thought that no jacket/pant combination is perfect for what I want, I'm 99% settled on a Klim Badlands Pro (Gray/Black) jacket and a Klim Adventure Rally (gray/black) pant.

I'd spring for the Adventure Rally jacket, but I don't feel it's a $600 better jacket than the Badlands for me. That being said, is the black on the Adventure Rally Pant the same shade as the black on the Badlands Pro jacket?

All the pictures I've seen seem to make the black look a shade "off". Can anyone confirm that they do, in fact, match?

The jacket you're referring to is actually grey/dark grey. No black in it, at least not in mine and it's the new version.

Damn - I thought I was really on to something, too. Really dug the fact that Klim is incorporating the tailbone and thigh padding in the Adventure Rally pant, too.

Looking at same combination as you for same reasons. Nice with matching coclors but not a deal breaker, function comes first. But the black Badlands jacket is an option. Or all black adventure pants as black goes with eveything, actually looks the best:
