Iím in Alice and have been pre-running for Finke for the past few months and what works for me is the following:

Fox Titan Sport jacket. Iíve crashed on it and was very happy that nothing failed and nothing broke ( on me or the gear). My Leatt neck brace slides down the back of it nicely then my jersey keeps the front down. Iíve been wearing the BMW Summer 2 pants and while they have offered really good protection, are WAY too hot for this area and Iíve asked Santa for some Kilm Bajaís . Helmet, Ive gone through a few and like the HJC, CS-MX with a good pair of goggles. For hydration Iíve had the Camelback Hawg for as long as I can remember and itís as close to indestructible as you are going to find.

Good luck.

Take a look at the Forcefield extreme harness. Very comfortable.

30 litre backpack is huge for riding though, do you need that kind of space? Biggest one I have is a Kriega R20 though lately we've all been using the USWE hydration H4 packs. Less storage space but no bouncing around

I find a 3l bladder and key tools in a small backbag heavy during a long rally. I would rather carry less.

- Tesla compression base layer - to prevent chafing from the armour suit
- Armour vest full sleeved
- MX jersey with a Gerber hydration backpack 3L and maybe 10ltr of space. The waist belt is priceless if you don't want the back pack bouncing all over during the ride.
OR
- KTM rallye jacket with all builtin armour removed, 1.5ltr hydration bladder, frequent refills.

I am looking for a good Rally type jacket with lots of ventilation that is compatible with a Leatt brace.

Looking for a shell only as I wear body protection separately from jacket.

Kenny Titanium looks pretty good ?

Any suggestions ?

I have the Kenny titanium jacket ,And love it lot of pockets lots of vents well made , also KTM ADV jacket , KTM Race light pro enduro , but the Kenny is the best , I take the removable liners out of the KTM ADV jacket on cold days , I'm a large but got a xxl and it's perfect with pressure suit and liner

Thank you for the info, specially or the size. It's good to know.

Are Kenny Jackets sold in US or do I have to order from Europe ?

+1 on the KTM Rally jacket it's probably the best bang for the buck Leatt compatible jacket I've tried (never tried a Kenny). About the only thing I wish it had would be a two way zipper on the main. On hot days I like to zip up to the middle of my chest, and then bring the 2nd "unzip" zipper up from the bottom to just above my belly button. This allows for lots of air moving across the core while preventing the jacket from twisting and binding up. I keep meaning to have a local luggage repair guy do it for me, but always forget to take it over there.

Do not be tempted by the Leatt jacket; it was pretty flimsy and not very well made. Zipper pulls came off, it wasn't even mildly water resistant, the venting wasn't particularly good, and the velcro closures weren't secured to the jacket very well, after one season the glue holding it to the jacket was coming undone. IMHO the KTM is a much better buy for not too much more money.

Wrex Racing. Custom made to what you want. In your part of the world too.

You can get as many external and internal pockets as you want. Custom design for your look and really well made. You can get extra room in the rear to allow a 3 liter hydration pack underneath. Ventilated or not ventilated . I wear Laett body suit underneath it and neck brace. Great people to deal with.

This is great. Did not know about them and they are about 4 hours from my place. Custom enduro gear and paintball gear, can't ask for anything better. Cheers !
