I'm no expert here but have owned both. Currently still riding in the Badlands if that tells you something. I think it will all depend on your riding. While I think the Rev'it is high quality gear and fits better than KLIM I will say I still like my KLIM gear better. GoreTex being key here. I hated having to change out liners all the time in my REV'it gear. You can't beat Goretex. I have worn it it 115 degrees all the way down to 35 degrees with no liners or anything and been perfectly comfortable. It's waterproof and breathes... Like I said the Rev'it is excellent gear but no way I would go back after owning the Badlands gear. The Kidney belt is awesome. That's enough waist adjustment for me... Your call..
