I bought the Traverse pants after I had the Klim Traverse jacket. I like them both very much. They fit true to the size suggested on their chart, and they are comfortable. I ride dual sport bikes, in all kinds of weather, and roads. Both the pants and jacket are waterproof, and hold up to rugged riding.
They are worth the money spent.

I bought the Klim Traverse jacket, and also the D30 armor for my back, elbows, and shoulders. The jacket has built in pockets for removable armor. I have ridden all over the west and to Mexico in all kinds of weather and roads. This jacket is great. Rain proof, and rugged. I ride dual sport and have fallen a few times. Can be a little warm when the temps rise, but the protection factor is really good especially when armor is used. If I could suggest one thing is to add a vented area in the sleeves. Other than that I would buy this jacket again.

I wear this back protector in my Klim Traverse jacket. I ride dual sport bikes and when I fell on my back down in Baja, I got up and was not hurt. It does not let air flow through it but the protection I have matters more than being too hot. The fit is good for me as I am 5'10" and it covers my back really well.
I also have the elbow, and shoulder armor for the jacket made of the same material. Makes the jacket a little heavy overall, but again worth the protection factor.

Icon Field Armor Stryker Vest The Field Armor Stryker vest is at the very heart of the Icon creed. A silhouette that broke with the conventional race derivative dogma and struck out on its own street specific course. Low profile back armor with high profile design. Back protection for tactical riding. The original Field Armor vest set a benchmark in the back protector world - the Stryker ups the ante. The back protector is loaded with d3o intelligent foam and full CE approval, the Field Armor Stryker Vest back armor is designed to take hits you hope will never come. Rock it under your jacket or over a hoody - just wear it. If today is the day that you go down, you want Stryker on your back. Features CE APPROVED STRYKER BACK ARMOR D3O BREATHABLE BACK INSERT, WITH CUSTOM MOLDED ICON GEOMETRY ARTICULATING INJECTION MOLDED HARD BACK ARMOR WITH AIR FLOW CHANNELS INJECTION MOLDED CHEST PLATE WITH INTEGRATED AIR INTAKES VENTED BIOFOAM AND AIRMESH CHASSIS HYDRADRYTM MOISTURE WICKING LINER HIGHLY ADJUSTABLE WAIST AND SHOULDER STRAPS LOW-PROFILE DESIGN FITS UNDER MOST JACKETS

I chose the Icon Stryker vest because it is comfortable and fits well. It could be a bit longer in the front, but overall it's a great fit. I am female and bought the pink female vest, size large. I'm 5'10". It was too big and I liked the red color better in the mens version so I bought the mens medium for a comparison fit. I kept the red one. As far as having a vest for women or men it didn't matter because the vest is flexable, and wraps around with velcro on the sides.
