I bought the Klim Latitude pants and jacket this year. It's awesome gear, period. I was surprised to see that the gear is made overseas, but I am totally satisfied with the fit and quality. I received the Klim briefcase as a gift, and it's great too!

What $560 for jacket and $500 for pants and briefcase is a "gift"?

Nah, a friend of mine saw me lusting over the briefcase ($99) and gave it to me for my birthday. I realize the price of the Klim gear is up there, but I've easily spent more than that on my other jackets and pants looking for the perfect setup. I'm pretty satisfied now.

As long as they don't purchase Filson http://www.filson.com Their tin cloth coats, pants and chaps are kick ass riding gear!

WHAT??????

I would hate to lay a bike down on the dirt or pavement with Filson hunting gear on. Instant cloth burn embedded in the skin. Go Comets!
