I've been actively looking for new waterproof riding gear that will cover a range of seasons, conditions, and riding styles. I'm looking for something totally versatile for on/off-road, layering underneath, or venting in the hot, but still staying dry through it all. So far, my top options have been the Klim Traverse jacket & pant, or the Icon Patrol combo. I like the Icon for the bib/suspenders and features of the jacket, but the Traverse is cheaper (although I would plan to buy the D3O armor and be able to remove it when wearing a pressure suit), and has the gore-tex guarantee. I trust Klim's build quality a bit more than Icon, given what I've heard about longevity of both products. Some googling has revealed this, though: http://www.atomic-moto.com/Klim-Overland-Jacket_p_834.html No info about it on Klim's site (or anywhere else, apparently), but it's priced between the Traverse and the Latitude; so will it be oriented more towards split pavement and dirt riding, or just an up-featured dirt version of the Traverse? Why so much more expensive? I've heard it may come with armor, but there's no mention of that on the site. It looks like it has a higher collar to keep more weather out of the helmet. How about touring in the Traverse? I've heard the cut is baggy and will blow me around at highway speeds and not keep the armor in place; but I've also read that some people do it comfortably. The Overland looks like it might vent better with the dual extractor zips on the back vs. the single horizontal on the Traverse. So, should I wait until this officially releases and consider it as an alternative to the Traverse or the Patrol?
