    Hello guys.

    Thanks for accepting me to your group.
    I am in search for a new adventure system but i dont know which one i should get.
    Some of my options are:

    - Revit Sand 2
    - Siima Sibirsky Super Adventure
    - Dainese Explorer

    Any other suggestions?
    I don't want to spend a fortune since i think it doesn't worth it.
    I would like a truly four seasoned jacket that i will be able to wear it in cold or hot temperatures.

    Thanks for your help!

    I'd recommend KLIM Overland. Great wind protection, a guarantee not to get wet and life time warranty. Great jacket.

    Great Jacket indeed. But what about the price? It costs a fortune. I personally believe that is overpriced.
    No jacket deserves 800 - 1500 EUR.
    And it's not about protection that we are talking about.

    I have been through many variations of leather, textile etc. It really depends on your riding and cash flow. If you do and have lots of both a Klim or equivalent is fine but being that I am a cheap bastard I can see the point you make. Hard to justify but if you are out in the weather 4 seasons a partially waterproof product can be really a bad choice. Wet gear and a cold day can result in some bad decisions. I picked up a used high end coat off the Fleamarket on ADV at about 30cents on the dollar. He lost weight. Cost me no more than any of the options you listed.

    I bought a suit of Klim latitude a few years back and the only thing I would change is the ability to store a hydration bladder in the rear of the jacket.

    I started using the bladder in snowmobile two years ago and it's amazing how much of a diff a few sips of water every time you stop makes to improving your ride

    I've thought of a new jacket with an integrated bladder. But it eliminates a lot of good jackets. So I think I'm going to try a bladder back-pack instead.

    What about this Siima Sibirsky Super Adventure?
    It has also a reservoir pocket for the bladder.
    I don't know the brand but it looks like a great solution at that price.
    It can be transformed into a net from and a waterproof layer goes on top. It also has removable collar, which makes a lot of difference in summer.

    You won't like my answer as I don't mind the $$ for what I want. I threw down for the Klim Adventure jacket and pants because I wanted a good jacket I could wear my neck brace under. Definitely on the top end of the price spectrum. Before that I wore cheap shit that worked fine but the neck brace was an issue and carrying a separate set of rain gear was irritating.

    hmmm.... thats another thing that i should have in mind. Thanks. I guess if the brand has a detailed size chart you should be able to measure neck brace so you avoid the hassle (if you are ordering online).

    Still, i am sure you can find something that will fit great on you with much less than that. Klim is giving top quality clothes. But... price is not justified in any case. We are talking for a minimum of 800EUR for a jacket.

    I agree, you get what you pay for.

    I have decided to keep the BMW Raylle suit as it is one of the best out there (or was when the Gortex liner worked)

    I just ordered the Klim Badlands jacket, pants at a later date. I looked at the Adventure Raylle but just a little out of my range. The Badlands is a great compromise.

    if price is not an issue then you should go for it.
    I think am going for the Siima Sibirsky Super Adventure.The jacket looks like it has everything. And the price is VERY GOOD.
    It's worth a look.
    I will contact the guys at Siima and see if it's released .

    I have the Klim Overland jacket and honestly $400 is a great price for this jacket. I would buy another in a heartbeat.

    Great jacket, I was a little disappointed to find the pants fit leaner than my Dakar pants but they're still fine. The collar is changeable from normal to fitting over a Leatt brace and still give full weather protection. I wore it on a 2 week trip and it was fine except a little extra airflow down the neck. Not everyone likes lots of pockets but I found the 2 big rear side pockets were great for spare tubes and I like the built in hydration bladder. I definitely don't use them all. When Neduro rode the Dakar he kept his tools in his jacket which worked really well for him. The backpack style shoulder straps built inside help distribute weight down to the hips. I wasn't' running heavy enough to need it. Some people want more vents but living in NL it's fine, I may change my tune if I find myself in west Texas in July. This is the first gear I've had withbuilt in armour, it feels fine too.

    This is my old setup but now I have Klim Dakar pants. I got this Ascerbis jacket from a buddy and at the time it was the only one I could find that would go over a Leatt brace, as you can see that collar zips off. I was happy to find on the first day of the Mongolia rally in 10° weather on a 600+ km stage I was able to stay warm enough. My old Dianese DH armour fits fine under this amd it's what I usually wear when off-roading locally These TLD pants served me well, when I got my new ones I donated these to a friend. It is definitely not waterproof and with silver Dakar pants the Silver Surfer look is pretty funny.

    I have agvsport. I rode in a huge thunderstorm last year with it just before I sold the versys, I was dry as a bone except about 1 inch up my wrists since I never had my high cuff gloves on. Best part it's incredibly inexpensive gear. Ticks off ALL the boxes for me and the missus!
