I've been wearing a Rukka AirPower suit for about eight or nine years. It's nearing the end of its life, with zipper issues, armor cracking. It's a great suit, but has the same problem I find with the BMW Rally Pro suit: the waterproof liner is INSIDE, i.e. you have to disrobe to put the liners on, and then, though you stay dry, the outer suit gets wet and heavy, and conductive cooling causes you to begin edging towards hypothermia.
I've tried on the KLIM Badlands Pro, and it fits, and I like the fact that the suit is made of Goretex, so I can just keep riding when the weather turns wet, BUT: I live in central Texas. It's hot AND humid here. I travel. For instance, I just finished a loop up through Idaho/Washington/California/Texas, going from 106 in Texas to low 40s and raining (and sleeting) in ID/WA, to 115 across the Mojave. In other words, I need a four season suit unicorn, because I encounter four seasons in as many weeks. My concern about the KLIM is the hot part of the riding profile. I'd sure like to get feedback from any of you using the Badlands Pro in really hot weather, and if anyone is using a different Rukka suit, that isn't the tight mesh my suit has, I'd like the same feedback.
Touratech makes what appears to be the perfect solution, but when I called the Seattle office, I was dissuaded from considering it by the person I spoke to, who claimed the outer goretex liner "takes up an entire pannier."
No, I won't consider an Aerostich, but thanks for suggesting.
