Roger that. Thank you for the feedback!! You may be right on the exhaust vents. I haven’t had a problem with it yet, but I’ve only used the Rak on two trips so far. The first was on a 1290 (big windscreen) and the second was on a 150 (low speeds). The real test would be on a 690 touring trip: high speeds, no windscreen, long distance. That’ll be me this spring if nobody beats me to it. I think the Rak’s main body fabric is probably a little heavier than the Traverse. I haven’t held a Traverse for a long time so I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure. Also the Rak is 3-layer not 2-layer & liner like the Traverse obviously. Adventure Spec is making some 3 layer shells that are designed to accommodate separate armor. They might line up with what you’re looking for: a traverse minus the liner and armor. I haven’t actually seen or held one myself, only seen the pics, but they have more openings than the Rak, so might be appealing to folks who want more vents. Personally I’ve found with separate armor that the temperature window in which I need vents is greatly reduced. Like maybe I put on my jacket in the morning, take it off in the middle of the day, and put it back on at the end of the day. So the vents might let me take it off a half hour later or something like that, but it doesn’t amount to much in the big picture. I sweat a lot, so I’m pretty sensitive to overheating. When it warms up or the riding gets technical, my jacket comes off ASAP. And it usually doesn’t go back on until much later in the day.
