    The company does a lot sports gear. My road bike is a Scott.

    2 German magazines tested it and seem to like it:

    I've looked at it in person, tried one on, and will be buying one as soon as I can sell my other gear. Very nice spec and SAS-Tec armor is the icing on the cake.

    Were you able to compare it with a Klim?
    Also it seems you need to order rear protector extra.

    In my mind, there's no comparison to be made. Klim is a good 50-100% higher in price, so my expectations would be equivalently higher. The Dual Raid is 500 denier Cordura, which does the job just fine by me. I could care less about GoreTex, because I carry a rain suit. I will wash the Dual Raid in Nikwax once I get it, so it will shed water in a light rain. Once the rain becomes steady, the dedicated raingear goes on. Yes, you have to stop, but it's not as big of a hardship as others make it to be.

    The SAS-Tec backpad and hip armor are optional, but that's an extra $100. So you're looking at $750 for the jacket, pants, and armor. Higher priced Rev-it gear doesn't come with a SAS-Tec backpad either.

    This is a great value, and it feel like quality gear. I'll post up some images once I get everything - it will probably be a month or so.

    I own the Scott distinct 1 gt. It has been a great jacket this winter. It Keeps me comfortable and dry @ freeway speeds and sub 40 degree rainy days.

    Tag for update.

    Intrested to know how they claim Breathable, but wind- and waterproof all at the same time; what system they use.

    I saw this jacket in person today. Very nice. Fit me better than the overrated Klim Latitude. And has more features. Nice vents on back, chest, forearms. Sas-tec armor (but you have to buy back pad separate which is lame). Removable sleeves. Very nice waterproof liner. The shell felt like it'd shed water in a light rain (just my opinion based on feel of the shell). It's top of the line. The material of the shell felt very substantial yet supple enough (not stiff like the Klim). Pocket for water bladder. I tried on the brownish/grey color. Looked great in person.

    Saw the pants. Also very nice. Only annoying thing was no zip up the leg cuff. Had the same liner as the jacket.

    Got it in the mail yesterday. It is utterly fantastic! It is the BMW Rallye 3 Pro but 1/2 the price.

    not only does the waterproof liner zips, it has storm flaps as well. It zips on both sides of the jacket.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-07-10_57_zps6ae7ac67.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-07-10_57_zps6ae7ac67.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-07-10_57_zps6ae7ac67.jpg"/></a>

    Only has one inside pocket. big enough.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-07-26_216_zpse42cc627.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-07-26_216_zpse42cc627.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-07-26_216_zpse42cc627.jpg"/></a>

    Buttoned up its great. large storm flap and 2 position collar.
    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-08-02_416_zps38e3a06a.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-08-02_416_zps38e3a06a.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-08-02_416_zps38e3a06a.jpg"/></a>

    Upper left zippered pocket, with zipper garage.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-08-10_407_zpsf26f8b11.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-08-10_407_zpsf26f8b11.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-08-10_407_zpsf26f8b11.jpg"/></a>

    Lower right zippered pocket. There are also lower right and left buttoned pockets with inch storm flaps.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-08-19_589_zps7b5d7292.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-08-19_589_zps7b5d7292.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-08-19_589_zps7b5d7292.jpg"/></a>

    This is with the 2 chest pockets open. much like the Rallye. also has a pathway for a drinking tube, pocket for the bladder in the back.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-08-56_437_zps9c437c92.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-08-56_437_zps9c437c92.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-08-56_437_zps9c437c92.jpg"/></a>

    The arms zip up and down, again like the Rallye. Has great venting.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-09-26_456_zps66471041.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-09-26_456_zps66471041.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-09-26_456_zps66471041.jpg"/></a>

    The arms adjust with snaps, much better than the straps and velcro.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-09-34_697_zps209ee869.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-09-34_697_zps209ee869.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-09-34_697_zps209ee869.jpg"/></a>

    Left forearm has the little see though pocket.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-09-43_421_zpsabaa9ab2.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-09-43_421_zpsabaa9ab2.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-09-43_421_zpsabaa9ab2.jpg"/></a>

    The back has a large upper vent. as well as the pocket for the bladder.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-10-09_876_zps4ad1badd.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-10-09_876_zps4ad1badd.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-10-09_876_zps4ad1badd.jpg"/></a>

    There are also 2 vents that run the length of the back.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-10-16_86_zps5e3f0b04.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-10-16_86_zps5e3f0b04.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-10-16_86_zps5e3f0b04.jpg"/></a>

    and of course a butt pocket.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-10-21_696_zps4cbd4190.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-10-21_696_zps4cbd4190.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-10-21_696_zps4cbd4190.jpg"/></a>

    The arms zip off. taking all armer with it.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-11-43_451_zps5de37691.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-11-43_451_zps5de37691.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-11-43_451_zps5de37691.jpg"/></a>

    The armer is stored in these soft mesh pockets.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-11-49_68_zps57280e94.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-11-49_68_zps57280e94.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-11-49_68_zps57280e94.jpg"/></a>

    Once the liner is unzipped only a few snaps hold it in, very fast to remove.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-12-29_141_zps2d35e12c.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-12-29_141_zps2d35e12c.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-12-29_141_zps2d35e12c.jpg"/></a>

    Pretty standard.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-13-30_155_zps177f1bae.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-13-30_155_zps177f1bae.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-13-30_155_zps177f1bae.jpg"/></a>

    armer is ok. kinda hard but flexible.

    <a href="http://s1262.beta.photobucket.com/user/Case_Frick/media/2013-02-01_19-14-38_318_zpsb2304587.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1262.photobucket.com/albums/ii607/Case_Frick/2013-02-01_19-14-38_318_zpsb2304587.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2013-02-01_19-14-38_318_zpsb2304587.jpg"/></a>

    This jacket is everything i was hopping for. Just great. Looks like a full 3.5 session jacket.

    CJ - Thanks for the input! I should be ordering my stuff next week (getting the blue/grey), and adding the SAS-Tec backpad and hip pads. I'll post pics once I get it.

    Anymore reviews? I love the looks of this jacket but I cant find any reviews on how functional it is. How is its waterproofness?

    Mine comes on Thursday, so hopefully I can try it on and post some pics. I'm going to wash it in Nikwax before the start of the season. I use a dedicated rain jacket and pants, but the Nikwax should help with the occasional shower. I probably won't use the liner, because I have a heated liner I use during cooler weather.

    I purchased the additional SAS-Tec back pad and hip pads, as well. Once I get a chance to try everything on and I'll post some pics and my general impressions. Riding impressions will have to wait another two months or so.
