    I really like the jacket and pants - but really wanted a new suit for my ride to Indy next month.

    Options:
    1. Buy Rukka Armas jacket and pants:D
    2. Buy Revit Everest jacket and pants:D
    3. Use my Revit ignition jacket and pants and hold out for the Klim - not my preference as that means i have to bring rain gear for this trip. :cry
    Thoughts?

    Exactly, if it's a less expensive outfitt than the Badlands how much will the Badlands eventually cost ... $100 less than the Adventure? :eek1

    funny.
    i bought the traverse pants because i like the basic goretex shell idea for rainy days (i have dakars too), but said no way to the traverse jacket. i could not get past the looks of the jacket. hate it. i think they hired thor's jacket designer. :puke1:puke1:puke1

    That's more like it :deal

    Good side by side detail of the differences, especially the 2 ply or 3 ply goretex fabric and Goretex stretch panels

    I was hoping that at that price we might see some Kevlar used.

    I am pretty sure the retro design of the Silver Traverse remains the same. We agree we are not fans of that asymmetrical look but the suit is awesome for the price.

    i know, love my pants...and for that matter everything Klim produces!
    i just they realize they did not get the styling right and the look is turning people off.

    they don't need a R&D design just make those dark grey center panels light grey like other parts of the jacket and they'd have it fixed. the under-arm and arm in dark grey can stay the same and it would be a very sharp jacket.
    the assym chest cuts in the material would disappear if it was solid light grey. just a minor tweak during production, that's all.

    companies products evolve over time per customer requests/feedback...our maps sure as hell have done that.
