I received the 20S last week but can't give a solid review of the product yet as I have not used it yet. I will update this in the near future.
What I can comment on is the customer service/help desk from Sena. Two words "They Suck"
The first troubles came when I tried to initially charge the unit (it charged up fine) but this led me to registering the product at the Sena website (no real issues there) This in turn led to downloading the firmware update. This is where the problems began. Apparently Sena DOES NOT get along with APPLE products and after sending emails and submitting a trouble ticket NO ANSWER from Sena. Did a few google searches and searched the Sena forum to find I'm not the only MAC user that is having problems. Bad form Sena for not disclosing none compatibility with Apple. I am still trying to resolve this issue.
FYI: The speaker system is ok for voice as it is intended but if you are planning to use it mostly for music as I do think again. I have another set of speakers on order to fill my fidelity need. To be fair I was never under the impression that the speakers were going to be great for listening to music, it's just something that people should be aware of.

I have 5 suits but the Klim Badlands suit is my go to suit. I've used the jacket & pants for 2 full years and although expensive it was money well spent. I bought the suit to ride my BMW R1200 GSA around China. I've also used it on a 10 day off road ride through Laos last December (High Season). I have had a total of 4 crashes while wearing this suit and believe me it has held up well and only suffered a minor tear in the upper right hand chest pocket. During the hotter months the venting is excellent while riding and in the rain although it does get wet I've always stayed dry. The only misconception about Gore Tex is that it stays water proof forever and that ain't so. I treat the suit at every wash with Nikwax and I'm good to go for the next rain. As with anything, nothing lasts forever and when this suit wears out you'd better believe I'll be getting another one.

Sidi Adventure GTX Boots Based on the outstanding success of the Sidi Adventure Rain Boots , it has been decided that the full Gore-Tex version of the boot will be imported from Italy. Previously this boot was only available in Europe. This ultimate adventure boot combines the best of both worlds (offroad and touring) into a boot that is extremely protective as well as comfortable both on and off the bike. With the Gore-Tex membrane these boots are 100 waterproof as well being highly breathable. These boots come with the Gore-Tex Guaranteed to Keep You Dry promise. Soft rubber sole for maximum grip. Replaceable strap system. Top grain leather construction. Composite inner sole. Removable arch support. Exclusive cam-lock buckle system. Cambrelle lining. Slim, cool non-bootie design. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel. Single Flex System upper.

I bought the boots for adventure riding in China & Laos and I haven't had a chance to use yet, so I will update this later. Having said that, I have tried them on and walked around in them, and so far I can't say enough about the construction quality of these boots. They even come with extra pieces to make repairs if you should need to. The boots are obviously not broken in yet, but they don't hurt my feet and actually feel as though they can be worn for long periods of time with no problems. The certainly have a presence about them that let's you know that they are the real deal. I look forward to updating the performance aspect in the near future.
