Merry Christmas.

I am curious to hear your thoughts on it when you are able to try it out.

Good jacket but when it comes to hot weather the performance is poor.

If you want a real adventure jacket go for something like siima sibirsky super adventure, revit sand, touratech companero, dainese explorer.

Interesting you put the siima sibirsky super adventure in amongst that lot, very much a lower price and spec compared to the others. Have you had a set? It gets OK reviews but comes in for a bit of criticism too re stitching and armour quality. I'm not saying it is poor value for money just not sure it is in the right company?

Thanks JohnnyB, but as you can see I've actually bought the Klim now so I have taken the plunge and not planning to climb back of the pool just yet..

cheers

Hi,

Sorry for not answering on time.
I do have a suit from them. Before ordering it i asked about the stitching and they said that they have fixed it.
They told me that all stitches are double which is true as i can see from my suit.

For the price it is really, really good.
Twice per year i get to transform it. Once in to spring/winter mode and the other into fall/summer mode.
Fitting is good and more fit instead of bullky, which is what i like.

Protection is also very decent with EN1621-1, EN1621-2. Leaflet is included on the tags.

I do have the impression that these guys are regularly changing the suit. Because what i got is quite different from what other people say. Definitely more improved.

Anyhow, you made a decision so that's good. Hope you enjoy it and ride safe!
