Yes. I think if you watch the video at Revzilla, it's mentioned that the hydration tube runs out of the pocket.

Congrats on the new gear. I'm jealous.

Oh, the HiViz Badlands shipped to the warehouse today so it will start showing up as orderable all over soon. The HiViz Misano and the Overland stuff hasn't arrived yet.

Also the new designs for the Mojave jersey and pants are amazing.

Yup,
It comes out at the right side breast pocket.
The tube snakes through the bottom and then routes up behind the chest armour and then stuff the mouthpiece though the hole going into the pocket.

I'm in the minority of running it inside the coat but it works for me.

XL Latitude is the same as XL Badlands size wise. Collar on Badlands is more comfortable HiViz matches my helmet perfectly.

You must be comparing to the old Latitude jacket. I own the new Latitude misano, I've had it for several months. I just recently purchased the Badlands to upgrade. I returned the Badlands. Having both in hand the Badlands is much heavier, albeit more rugged. The collar on the Latitude misano is much softer then the Badlands. Also in my opinion the Latitude is a boxier roomier cut. I felt the Badlands was more of a tailored cut. They are both excellent gear, with great construction and protection. If your doing serious off road riding the Badlands is the jacket to choose, for on road and occasional off Latitude misano is the way to go.

I was in Mike's shop today and saw the new Hi-Viz Badlands Pro Jackets. They are nice! You could see a rider coming a mile away in it. The black and neon yellow are patterned differently than any other jacket I've seen. Very well done; usual Klim quality. These will be an instant hit with the street crowd.

I did manage to score a pair of the new style Dakars!

Just got my High Viz Badlands Jacket, here are some pics from home.









My camera had a hard time focusing on the bright colors and the dark colors but it is definitely noticable!

Looks sharp!

Let's see some shots with it on if possible?

This is the only one I have. Unfortunately my GF is out of town and I don't have the largest mirrors in the house. So here is an attempt. I'm sure more will follow later.


I was trying to use the flash, but didn't want it to blur out the photo in the mirror so I had to hold it up all awkward style. But I hope you get the idea.

Klim did a nice job of their hiviz jackets. I'm not a big fan of hiviz because most jackets look cheap when they're a solid neon yellow. I had a BMW Airshell and it wasn't too bad, but the hiviz Badlands and Latitude are really nice.

Perfect, that looks great, much easier to get an idea of it in the real world (product shots never quite translate) - looks to be the "right" amount of high-vis to me without going overly dorky. Yeah I said it, high-vis is not "cool" but i've got this jacket ordered so I'm clearly willing to put up with this, glad to see they still look pretty sharp, and hopefully get us noticed by other road users.

Yeah, it's definitely not a solid neon yellow, the back has quite a bit of yellow, but who cares, my gf isn't wearing it

I think it looks great and no one has said anything negative about it yet. Oh, btw... I didn't tell the shop I'd give them a shout out or anything and I definitely don't work for them, but Motoprimo in MN was great at getting me hooked up with this jacket (and pants are to come, but not high viz obviously). Thanks!

Hip armour

Just stoped by the Klim HQ and tried on the new Badlands pants and jacket, pants are a much tighter fit than my Dakars or Mojaves around the waist, and anybody notice the hip armour placement? The armour is in front, not on the side over your hip bone, asked the gal if she knew why and she had no clue. Checked my RP2 and revit pants, and the armour is all on the side. Trying to figure out what they are thinking, it couldn't be moved the way the inner pocket was sewed in. Other than that detail on the pants the jacket is a nice piece, if the collar velcro works to keep the collar open.

I'll be getting my pants sometime next week and I'll try to take pics of the armor placement. I did notice it a little forward when I tried on a pair (but they were too small so I think I chalked it up to that).

I wore 32s in the Traverse and had to go up to the 34s Badlands.....the hip armour is kind of a head scratcher. I wonder if upon impact the pants twist a bit and the armour comes forward?? I hit the asphault in my traverse going about 50mph, and my skinny D30 armour did the job, I had zero brusing on my hip, and I slid on it for about 20 ft. Impressive stuff, but does anybodys knees get irritated from the D30 in the cold months? Mine rubs my knee cap and doesn't bend well......I keep my suit in the basement. A consistant 64F.

Love to see someone address this issue.
