    You guys could take a design cue from your friends at Airblaster and make the pit zip vent/ side zip all one zipper with multiple zipper pulls. Makes it so the side zip would extend into the arm. But would also make it less simple, more openings for the the agua.

    I will have to check that Airblaster design out; it sounds interesting.
    I think you hit the nail on the head with "more openings for the agua." The Rak isn't supposed to be technical in any aspect apart from its materials.
    Too simple to fail and all...

    I find even when I have pit zips on clothing I almost never use them no matter what I’m doing.

    I use them all the time to vent off heat and moisture when hiking and skiing. They only get closed when it’s extremely cold or blowing rain/snow sideways. But I sweat a lot. There is no breathable waterproof fabric that vents enough to be effective for me. Helpful yes. Effective no.

    If I were that warm, I would just take the jacket off, but that's me. When push comes to shove, all of our jackets (Basilisk, Rak, & Deluge) are designed to be removed and stashed whenever things get physical, or temperatures rise. *With a grey area for the Basilisk and all of it's venting, but that's more a product of abrasion resistance than anything else.

    Fixed, with thanks to Nowhat for the inspiration. It required drilling/melting a couple of new mounting points and the removal of the "spikes" on the Mosko mounting hardware. The installation is semi-permanent as the Chicago screws pretty much have to be installed before the Perun side plate goes on. The plate would have to be removed to remove the Aux pox. The top is secured with the Chicago screws and holds the weight. The bottom is zip-tied to the bracket to stop any flopping.

    I absolutely love this setup; I can't wait to do something similar on my 790. Having that flexibility of semi-permanent holsters seems super convenient.
    Thanks for sharing the photos; hopefully, it helps someone else in the future.

    Just in case anyone missed this cool little stop motion clip we put together for the Rak Pullover and Over-Pant.
    What do you guys think? Worth doing more of these in the future?

    I don’t think these are that useful. I prefer the product overview / demo videos. They have a lot of information as well as explanations on why a feature was designed.

    I love them for an advertisement but definitely prefer the other videos for information, pack size, etc.

    I like it but I agree for directions you need the full meal deal.

    Agree with others, great eye candy, but prefer videos.

    I agree and should have clarified that I meant that these would always be in addition to product overview videos.

    Sorry fellas, I should have clarified that these stop motion videos would always be in addition to our normal product overview videos. Way too many features and complexities to convey for most of our products without a walkthrough. My bad.

    I think they're great for that purpose.

    I think they are awesome! And to be contrarian, if you need more explanation than that to understand how pants and a jacket work, you might have something greater to worry about.

    To simple to fail shouldn't be to hard to figure out.

    Anybody have success running a Hood tank bag on a dirt bike? Trying to put one on my Husaberg FE 570. This is an older/longer bike than the newest gen KTM500
    It kinda fits but Im not sure if it will be in way on the trail or not.
