    Great Gear - c2cpilot   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Versatile, great protection, nice ventilation.
    Cons: Trying to come up with some....

    I was reluctant to buy the Kathmandu jacket and pants due to the initial got over it price. Let me tell you this...it's worth every penny I wore the jacket and pants to a cornerspin school last weekend and took some pretty hard spills in dirt. I just knew I was destroying the suit. Got home and threw it in the washer and it came out like it was still new I could not believe itThe armor protected me very well I did wear a back plate also I came down hard on my left forearm and elbow and with out the protection of this gear I feel no doubt there would have been injury...I got up dusted off and throttled on...Do yourself a favor, stop thinking about the price and just know you stand a better chance of riding more comfortably in this suit....not to mention more safely

    Good Jacket, works well - Adventure man   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Hypertex membrane, zip out liners, water bladder
    Cons: [None]

    I would definitely recommend this jacket to another fellow rider.. I've ridden with the jacket for one whole season in a mixture of Dual Sport, Adventure Riding, Sport Touring and Long Distance Endurance Riding. The features are awesome. From the included water bladder to the zip out liners and the hypertex waterproof membrane - everything works.

    poor pocket design - keith   NM Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: water proof, wind proof
    Cons: poor pocket design

    where as the suit is nice and light while providing protection from the elements the front lower cargo pockets leave a lot to de desired. the pockets have an envelope closure with velco to keep it closed but the material is not stiff enough to retain it's shape after a couple of uses. if you tighten the hip belt any at all that also deforms the pocket further. with he use of rubberized zippers on the vents and two other pockets it would have been nice to follow through with the idea. i would not trust the pockets to retain or keep any valuables dry.

    take a beating - Rob - Upstate Ny   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: light, waterproof, good support
    Cons: run small, buckles a bit stiff at first

    I ordered these in a 12 and sent back due to hard toe box being a little narrow. The size 13 is great. I have about 500 miles on these so far and they ahve been great. I've been through rain, mud, forect washouts and hot weather. They have performed beyond my expectations to date. I almost went with Icons or gaernes but decided to try these. I have not been dissapointed.

    Good boots for the money - Maerto   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: comfortable insole, good adjustments
    Cons: on backorder for a while

    Overall a nice pair of boots. Worth the money so far. time will tell. I was pleasantyl surprised of the comfort of this boot. The size runs a little small at least a one half size. Not for serious off road but much better than a road boot for off road.

    Nice Pants - Matt   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: kept me warm, good pants with suspenders
    Cons: only 1 color

    Overall they are a good pair of pants. I have the jacket too. I use it quite often here in the mountain and they have held up well.

    poor pocket design - keith   NM Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: water proof wind proof and light
    Cons: poor pocket design

    i use the pants with the bib and like the overall fit and design. there is a nice cuff to seal around large boots keeping any wind out. useing the bib makes it a little hard to relieve ones self without striping all the way down but can be worked around. the only pocket leaves a lot to be desired. the material is not stiff enough to retain the envelope folds and i would not trust it to retain or keep any valuables dry. with the use of rubberized zippers on the inner pocket pass throughs it would have been nice to use just one more on the pocket.

    update - Rob - Upstate NY   NY Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: light, waterproof, inexpensive
    Cons: buckles are flimsy

    I want to update my review. The rivets on the buckle gave out. I had to remove the interior rivet holder and rivted the buckle and wrapped with duct tape. Hopefully it holds. These are more for touring than DS riding.
