A must have!
I just returned from doing the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route on my BMW F800GS. This jacket and pants were perfect, I took my Badlands top and bottom, but due to my warm nature, never wore them. In temperatures down to the 40s and up to the high 70s it was great. Rain, mud, even took a break to cool off laying on some old snow that lasted through the summer. Took the armor out of my Badlands and put it in the Traverse, problem solved, even when rolling town a little rock hill from a spill.
Great jacket for enduro
I don't know how well GoreTex really breathes, but I can tell you that the vents work super well at flowing air and drying me off. The vents on the Traverse work just like the ones on my Mojave pants. They are great when you are sitting on the bike (MX or MTB) and even better once you stand up. Because of their location on the lower back, the rear vents work even if you are wearing a hydration pack. You can zip the vents open with one hand, but it takes two hands to close them. And, the zippers are high quality and do not snag on material as you zip them.
<br>Negatives = needs a removable insulated liner. I wish it came in more colors. My wife wishes they made a women's' version.
