Looking at getting a suit for colder/wet weather. I live in SoCal and own a BMW Rallye 3. I am planning a 1 month trip to Alaska in June and think goretex may be the way to go due to rain/cold. Yesterday I went to local BMW to try on a bunch of products. Here is rundown: 1. Badlands-. That thing is a tank. Unbelievably heavy and bulky. I could not imagine wrestiling a bike off-road with that thing on. That said- I am sure it would be the safest in a get off (because you are in a tank.). Better armor than latitude and Carlsbad. I really kind of ruled it out due to comfort but feel free to talk me into it. Also its super pricey over other options. 2. Latitude- nice jacket. A little less bulky/crunchy than Badlands. Alot lighter. It has 800 dd fabric so would probably serve better than Carlsbad in a high speed get off. Fit was whatever. I guess it is geared more towards street riding than Carlsbad. I am mostly on street like most but I do love getting off-road (but I would probably prefer Rallye in heavy off road situation as I don't plan on riding off-road if it's raining a ton. 3. Carlsbad-. This was the most comfy and lightest (not sure if light=good though in a get-off. I mean, jeans and a t-shirt is also light and comfy.) The cut was slimmer which works well for me. It only has 500 dd fabric so my concern would be a highway get off but I have no idea if it would be an issue. Primary use of this jacket is long distance touring with some light off-road mixed in during trips. I would like the following: 1. Something that compliments my Rallye 3 and fills a different need- mostly wet weather and colder rides (35-75 F.) 2. Something that is safe! E.g. I don't mind spending more if it means I will avoid injury. 3. Comfy fit. 4. Good for multiday/week trips (this jacket will never be worn around town as I have Rallye for that which is light and breaths well for socal. I feel I am really stuck between Carlsbad and Latitude but I lean towards Carlsbad. My only concern is high speed get off on road with Carlsbad as this is primarily for multiday/week trips with long highway stretches. Does the 500 dd in Carlsbad vs 800dd in Latitude really matter in a high speed get off or not really? This was helpful comparison of Carlsbad pant vs latitude- honestly I didn't even consider pant differences when looking yesterday. https://advrider.com/f/threads/compare-klim-latitude-to-carlsbad-pants.1214784/ Thanks for any insight!
