I have a ton of gear, it is sickening. I destroyed my favorite pants/jacket combo last year from the deer accident. I purchased the same jacket again; Tourmaster Transition jacket. it works great. Only thing is they don't make pants that don't suck. Matter of fact very few do. I do not want a stupid overpant. So I have been looking into a few alternatives since the last pair of pants I had were discontinued.
I am looking at a whole new gear setup for now, but maybe I'll just get the pants. Here is what I have narrowed it down to;
Firstgear Kathmandu Jacket and pants. $288 and $180 respectively. Kathmandu
Pro's: 1.5 liter hydration pack
under helmet rain hood
Hypertex waterproof shell (no rain zip in rain barrier or built in liner)
Detachable suspenders on the pants
Cons: Not much info on them yet, they are new.
Had the Kilimanjaro jacket before, was supposed to be w/proof but
leaked like a sieve.
Revit Sand Jacket and pants. $$430 and $299 respectively Sand Jacket
Pros: good reputation for quality/build
European sizing (fits us skinny dudes)
Cons: Damn expensive...
Interior zip in rain liner.
Anyone? real world experience? I was at a shop in Santa Monica that had Revit gear and it was really impressive, but still the price
