Thanks for good explanation and I'll study your suggestions. Yes I know my requirements are broad, but I'm usually weeks on the road and I pack light; soft panniers, duffle and tank bag have to hold all my gear including my tent. So my outer ride gear has to cover all the bases. I've had my Acerbis for a decade, so price isn't as big a factor as it might be.
I'll be back after reading up on the product list and consulting with my sons.
