Do the jackets and pants connect in any way? I've use KTM stuff to date and the top and bottom join with short zip at the back.

Klim's website has the best descriptions in order of price and what they are designed for. Expensive stuff but will provide years protection and comfort. I went with the badlands pro set and could not be happier.

I have the Klim Lattitude set. I took out the Klim armor and wear the Jacket pant set as a shell. Under the shell I wear body armor that is much more protective than the Klim armor. On a hot day I take off the jacket and still have the armor.

Very pleased with the Badlands set. Already crashed in the dirt mildly. Built in armor, venting and features are worth the money.

I have two sets of gear:

BMG for the off road and hot weather down here in Brazil:

Klim Badlands for long trips, rain, cold what ever you need. This is an outstanding outfit and I also use the suspender. I got them from CJ and he gave me an excellent deal. If you look for THE best gear and more practical one look no further, the money is well invested.

Buy what you want to wear, but Klim amor does not provide abrasive protection, only impact protection.

Even the upgraded armor is still only Level 1, and you cannot not upgrade to Level 2 with anything you can get from Klim.

And prepare your self to get a separate back protector.... just a good idea.

You can find the Traverse suit here and other markets at good process, certainly far cheaper than the Badlands. I fitted my Traverse suit with stock BMW NG armour, I feel better and more protection than the D30 armour. I szied up cause I ride year around and the XL accommodates my Gerbing or fleece. Light enough for year around, just finished 4500 mile trip into SW with 110 deg temps, wore cooling vest over dryfit T with some vent flow and stayed comfortable ( well for 110 deg sunny day). I just wanted a solid goretex suit that would hold good armour and vent well. Both jacket and pants fit the bill. I have over 60k miles in this suit, washed it 10 times, renew the DWR and ride!
