    KLIM Traverse rocks, totally waterproof without having to stuff around with removable liners but with great ventilation.

    Only complaint is the velcro closures on the bottom of the pants don't seem to stay closed, I just wrap some double sided velcro around the outside... fixed :thumb

    And they breathe.

    My legs stay velcroed no worries. The only thing that would make the outfit better for me is an adjustable neck on ther jacket. On mine, its a single press stud. I put a draught stopper in there when necessary, and it all works, but some adjustment would be better..

    Both of us have Tiger Angel Elements pants and jackets, and they are EXCELLENT. I had a problem with mine pants after 12 or 18 months and a heap of k's - 20 or 30. Went in, they were patched up, but I was told they weren't entirely happy with the repair, so made me a new set and sent them out when they were done. Pretty much the exact opposite of what happened when I had an issue with a top of the range Dririder jacket previously - the importer wasn't interested at all in resolving my problem.
    The pants breathe, and really have no warmth in them at all, so I wear thermal pants under in winter, and just shorts in summer. Perhaps a bit warmer than kevlar jeans, but more comfy and way more protection.
    From here on I'll be happy to pay the premium, keep the money in Australia, and have gear that fits and works as it should. I wouldn't go past them, for what it's worth!!
    Cheers

    "BUMP" for squizzy.
    I picked up a pair of Traverse pants with armour fitted last week. Haven't won them on the bike yet. The two day nav ride on 22nd 23rd june organised by TB650 on the Old Bulls Forum should be a good opportunity :)
