Re: Comfort Flow Gear
My SO and I both have the ComfortShell and love it. IMHO, it is the perfect combination of breathability and waterproof for our PNW climate. I've ridden for hours in total downpours with no leakage whatsoever. When the temps get over 90, the pants do start to get pretty warm as there aren't any ventilation zippers. With the excellent ventilation on the jacket, it still stays pretty comfortable, although if I lived in a southern climate I would probably get a mesh riding jacket for extended periods of over 90. I layer a Gerbings liner under it when the temp drops below 50 degrees and have stayed comfortable down to 19 degrees (the coldest I've tried it in). I love the fact I don't have to mess around zipping in a waterproof liner when the skies open up. Like most stuff BMW, it is not inexpensive, but overall I would definitely make the same purchase again. I also have a pair of Gerbings G3 gloves for colder temps.
