I thought that perhaps a stitch was left off when making it but a call to Klim seems to confirm that "they are all like that". When I pull the armor out things are fine (not enough weight to pull the inside down). I'm thinking about getting a couple of 1 inch or so tabs sewing the inside and outside together (this is how my rally2 is) which I think would alleviate the problem. New problem would then be the potential for leaks in these new stitches.

Love the suit otherwise.
I have the Traverse and the Badlands. Both break in and become much more comfortable over time.
