Never heard of it, and very affordable! I have a waxed cotton fjallraven jacket, was thinking of geting armour pockets sewn in and using it for summer/spring. Not for touring though.Australian Outback, Overlander jacket not a lot of money and it works.
Frogg Toggs sound good as a back-up if it's raining day after day. I love off-roading, mud, and look forward to rainy days, outer shell benefit is after the day the gear below is clean and dry. Right now narrowed the choice down to the Rev'it Horzon 2 with pants, need to try them and wait for some GPbikes/F9 sale as i'm in no rush in the winter. Other options are Dainiese X-tourer, thing fits like a glove.
Also, how many use neck braces? just heard of them and noticed only some jackets are combatabile
