Got Dainese suits and never looked back. Been riding with a Klim Badlands suit for a few months now and love it. Very well designed and constructed plus all top quality materials. A modern product.
You make a really good point here. It seems like the Darien and Roadcrafter products have remained the same throughout the years. I honestly don't think I would have a problem with a Darien set that fit right but I like all of the updated features that the Badlands has to offer. Not to mention newer materials and armor.
