I would like to see some lighter colors, khaki or sand. I'm not a fan of black. The styling looks very functional.

I think Anthony said the Latitude will come in 2 colours...black and a similar colour as the Traverse or the new ADV rally suit...sort of a mixture of silver, gray and KLIM green....in any case we will be getting one of each!

Klim Adventure Jackets

Are there any Jackets planned that support use of LEATT or Comparable Neck Braces? I prefer AGATT, and my neck is the vulnerable link...I have the brace, now I need a jacket that can ride year-round too!

*** Questor advised me that the Klim Adventure Rally Jacket he uses is LEATT compatable... Info to come in his Alaska RR!

I really like the snaps at the bottom of the pants...better than the Traverse use of Velcro....the improvements I am noticing as I look closer are really one's that prove KLIM has listened to all the critics out there to better their product and produce 2 new suits that should appeal to so many more riders out there. I truly believe KLIM has hit a home run by introducing the Badlands and Latitude as the go between. I see the Traverse being phased out to be honest but keep the top notch ADV Rally with these two and they have covered almost all DS riders and serious dirt bike riders too!

I agree with JMO. Nowhere near enough venting on any of Klim's gear AFAIC. Zipped openings aren't enough for really hot weather. Large mesh panels are heaps better, and the Revit (I think) with the roll down covering are pretty good compared to the completely removable panels. Although I think those still aren't large enough. Removable sleeves are brilliant and pretty common on Australian brands, which overall are pretty low quality unfortunately (apparently).

Hello Miss Lady :-)

These guys will probably not be available for Pre-Order for a while, but we will have a product page soon.

Remember they don't hit until the Fall.

No worries on the Hi-Jacking guys. I love hearing all of your feedback.

Best,

Anthony

Klim Latitude Jacket & Pants Video

Hey Guys,

We shot our first look video on the Klim Latitude Jacket and Pants last week and wanted to make sure it hit all of your radar who have been following the conversation.

RevZillaTV HD Video on the Klim Latitude Jacket and Pants

EDIT: Video Removed for now.

All questions welcome as usual.

Anthony

Good stuff

great video Anthony...a couple of things on this suit.. Maybe KLIM should allow the collar to be secured when open like the Badlands. Will you be able to fit D3o armour in this suit? Like the snaps at the bottom of the pants...like the liner in both the jacket and pants. The Traverse does not have one.
