Hey Everyone, I am going to be heading on an 8 month adventure ride from Morocco to Vietnam next year (thread on that to come later) and I am looking at gearing up for that trip now. I've been riding with a mesh sportbike jacket for the past couple of years (the older version of a Dainese Air Frame D1) and I am thinking of upgrading to a proper adventure jacket but I don't know if the cost is worth it. I am going to be doing a lot of long distance hiking along the trip so I already have an insulated down layer, windproof layer, and a bunch of long sleeves. I've been happy with riding my mesh jacket plus various layers for the past years, but I've never HAD to ride through rain/cold/inclement weather and I know there will be some of that if I'm on the bike for 8 months. So, given that I am a KLR rider (AKA cheap bastard) what is the big difference between ADV jackets and sportbike ones? Is it really worth it to drop a couple hundred on a new jacket or would I be fine making sure I had the right layers to add to my old mesh jacket when things get hairy? And if I can get away with layering up, what layers do you folks recommend I make sure I have nice sets of?
