Last year I had the traverse outfit, this year I bought the adventure pants and a badlands jacket.
traverse: was a great outfit for going out and riding my husaberg 450. Light, comfortable, roomy, dry in the rain, pretty tough. fairly well ventilated. Worked great over my endure gear. (pressure suit, knee guards etc

Adventure pant: heavy, snug fitting,Dry, warm(although well ventilated) Comfy, although heavy enough to need suspenders. Tough as hell.

Badlands jacket: HEAVY, pretty snug fitting, water bladder is hard to use, Great protection, great fit(if you are skinny and kinda lanky) well vented, dry,

Overall, when I go ride my 950, I wear the adventure/badlands. it feels like it would protect me well in a serious get off.

When I go more aggressive dual sporting on the 450, its the traverse. Its not as protective, but its a lot lighter, and I can move better in it.

hope this helps.

And then the fit....

make sure you order from somebody with a good return policy1
