I just pulled the trigger on buying a Badlands Pro jacket. I ordered it from Mike at Tellico Moto, a fellow advrider inmate here. Mike was great! The price was fantastic!!! Mike didn't have the jacket in stock in my size and color, so he'll be ordering it from Klim and having it sent directly to me. I should have it by next weekend .
I will try to post some feedback on the jacket here, after I've ridden in it for a few hundred miles.
Thanks to everyone who posted on this thread. All the advice, recommendations, suggestions, and experience was invaluable.
