Have you heard anything since? I'm thinking of refreshing my gear soon and I'll probably hold off if they're actually going to release the Rally 2 in the next few months.

Yes, I saw on FB a launch / weekend presentation from their Swiss importer, 2-3weeks ago.

Really like the idea of the Air. Be nice if Klim made a neck brace compatible jacket in women's sizes. We do adventure riding too..

On our own bikes. In hot to cold/rainy weather. We fall off in the dirt and wear Leatt braces.

You can get away with men's pants if you're tall, but not jackets. The armor ends up in the wrong places.

meh, not really, klim is just the one that decided to listen to us desert riders and make it. i'm not the only one who's been popping off emails over the years asking manufacturers to make this, and i guess i shouldnt be surprised its KLIM who is doing it, they have single handedly changed quite a bit in riding gear options over the past few years.

good for KLIM.

The same concept is available for few years in the Touratech Companero suit.

Stadler also offers several suits built like this too (not coincidentally Stadler makes the Touratech suit). Halvarssons Safety Suit was also built on this same principle.

oh wow, hadnt seen that before.

i want lighter/simpler stuff geared for dual sport/offroad rather than touring/adv touring. i'm not a KLIM fanboy or anything, but they are doing things pretty good for the more offroad crowd, anyway, more options out there the better we'll all be.

Yeah. Its hardly revolutionary. Its more about how well the outer is integrated to the inner. If the two act as one for donning/doffng it'd great. Otherwise its just another vented suit with an ill fitting flopping rain jacket over the top.

Gentlemen, I knew that Motoport build suits with the Shoeller Kevlar mesh, and figured others did also. I do not think those suits were made to work with an integrated, packable, 3-layer stretch Gore-Tex rainproof shell that can be packed and carried in the suit.

I wasn't aware that Motoport's Marathon liner was designed to be worn over jacket? I thought they were the same as all the other MP liners, meant to be worn under the jacket. The Ultra I had certainly couldn't work that way, but that was a few years back.

Damn! I thought maybe there was an updated system available

It was in no way my intention to "jump in a negative fashion", but I needed to point out an inaccuracy in your stated facts (that this concept is invented by Klim. Maybe it wouldn't have been necessary to mention the name of another product that did it before). The rest of the info mentioned by me was at your express request. It's a bit strange that you requested the info that you want now erased and consider to be negative interference.
As can be seen from some previous posts, I am quite interested in the products themselves and I actually think the Air would be a great product. Original, however, it is not, and it's not right to present it as such.

My apologies Brian. certainly meant no disrespect. I forgot about this thread. The suit is of interest, and it popped up since i'm subscribed to this thread.

Oh, and I have no alliances or agenda other than learning about new gear. Not sure if that was meant for me...

Best
