Badlands on a hot ride??? Not so sure...
II tried on the Badlands today and it's impressive but it still seems like it would be too hot for slow speed DS summer rides. I'd prefer to use a pressure suit with whatever layers and a goretex jacket shell so I can peel back layers and stash them. You can't stash a badlands and even if you could, you'd be left without armor. Plus the Badlands vents are small in the front of the jacket (where most needed IMHO) , big at the pits and back. All the other Klim jackets without ce pads are poorly vented IMO, making them a bad choice for hot summer rides.
Does anyone know of a great wp outer layer (no liner) with great ventilation?
Does anyone know of a pressure suit with d3o pads?
