TBT is an acquired taste. Some people think it's suitable for all around riding, some people don't. I love my bataleon whatever.
Use the search, there are a lot of threads on this and even some reviews.
You'll have a great time on your disaster.
I have done some research and read a few threads on here, but with recently getting the jacket, pants, and deck I wanted to get another thread going, I am stoked on the outerwear. The deck is solid as well, it seems a bit stiffer than what a "2" would be on the rating but I will find out as soon as I ride it!
