I picked up a set of the xt pads, and they are much more flexible in the cold...

Too bad you have to pay for the poor initial choice though.

I've never had this problem. I wear long LD Comfort pants underneath and this may have something to do with it. Also the d3o gets hard when its cold out but your body heat should soften them the longer they're on you.

Yeah, after a 50 mile ride, they still are rigid. Bummer, stuff seems brilliant. And not to get in a D30 debate, but it hardens upon impact, right? So instead of slamming onto the ground, which is hard, we're gonna slam onto the ground with rigid armour?? I'm confused how there isn't a "cush" layer against us with the D30 taking the brunt?? I may go back and swap my aerostich armour in the pants. I have them in my traverse, and after some scissor work, they fit. Still using the D30 in the hip. Thanks for the help.

Hip armor and D30

I thought the hip armor is in a weird place myself and its really thick. I ended up removing mine. If you plan on removing it you may want to go down a size on the waist. I am almost out of range on adjustment now and with the D30 in place it was spot on.

I would like to hear someone in the know explain this as well. I too ride in the cold and the knees do get hard and seem to lose their impact absorption ability.

Klim Badlands Pro

Just picked up the Badland Pro at a nice discount. Very comfortable so far. Can't wait try out the water proofness. I am very excited about the D30 padding. I was using a ten year old Joe Rocket Phoenix under a 15 year old MSR enduro jacket as an overcoat and some tour master over pants. I was worried about not having any chest protection. I would weAr my Acerbis chest protector for hardcore rides but not very practical for adventure touring. I also had a few rides in heavy rain and snow this fall where certain parts got extremely cold from being wet for extended periods so I am excited to have some waterproof gear. Will report back on performance but so far very comfortable.

No kidding, why the f$%k do they think all girls do. Was on my way to buy the Badlands, but I really think I'll wait for womens gear. I'm sick of my coats fitting like a 60's go-go dress.

womens gear

when we were at Klim a few weeks ago Laurie was along as well, she wanted to try on some gear. Klim said that womens gear was coming, but they also said they would get back to us about why the hip armor was so far forward, never a peep on either of our e-mail addresses. At 62 going on 63 the hip armour on the new gear is a deal breaker for me, no protection over the major hip bone at all.
