    I have the Mongolia pants and absolutely love them. Hopefully I feel the same about the jacket.
    I also have the core base layers. All adventure specs stuff is incredible

    How does their base layer gear compare to say some under armor type shirts of other generic sports wear for moisture-wicking?

    There is no comparison, the Adventure spec stuff is way better. More comfortable and higher quality than my under armor stuff. It also dose not seem to get as nasty as fast and dose not pull my leg and arm hair. I’m planning to buy a second set.

    I concur. I have the long pants and long sleeve CORE and love them. Makes me want to buy more from them.

    I didn't need to know that.

    Edit: Purchased the pants and already got shipment notification. My wallet wishes I hadn't seen that comment.

    I made my purchase just a couple of weeks ago. So, in the same boat... :bluduh

    EDIT: Pants may not have dropped in price. I wasn't aware of what their normal price was. Mongolia jacket is definitely priced way down.

    I am "hearing" that changes will be cosmetic only. Can't verify that, but getting a low-price jacket may be the way to go...

    Yeah, they already revealed that. But they have additional stuff coming out, so they say.

    Along side our new website we have some fantastic new Adventure Spec gear on its way. Some of this we're not quite ready to talk about yet, but one of the big things you will notice on the 1st July is that our Linesman Jacket, Mongolia Jacket & Pants and Atacama Jacket & Pants are all EN17092 CE Certified as motorcycle apparel for road use.
