Here a quick update on the Traverse jacket. I replaced the D3O elbow armor with large Know flex elbow armor (still like the D3O in the shoulders and back). This is the waffle cut looking stuff. The Knox armor fully fills the Traverse armor pocket and provides nearly twice the coverage of the D3O elbow armor and is significantly lighter. Also had the jacket out in the rain for the first time. While riding in the lower Smoky Mountains this Saturday. Spent about 2 hours riding in a light rain in the morning and again for 1 hour in heavy rain on the BRP. Stayed totally dry. Not a drop came through the jacket. Now I do sit behind a full fairing and a large windshield but the upper portion of the jacket was still completely wet from the rain.
