I was hoping to buy the new version but if its delayed until next year I guess I'll go with the current generation.
Thanks for any light you can shed on this!
They were correct. Last week I was notified these are definitely NOT happening for the intended arrival date, which was next month. Same for the ADV Air, Gore Overshell, and one of the womens jackets. Apparently, the production was completed or was near completion, but there was some details that did not meet Klim's specs. A complete cancellation means they were probably pretty serious.
We called all our customers and let them know last week.
Gore's lead time on raw fabric is notoriously long, and their production lead times are also lengthy. These combined probably pushed out replacement to the point where they just punted them to 2014.
Most everything else is still coming either 3/1 or 4/1.
