Or, you could go directly to Klim for a link to the d3o armour.

I found this info last week by chance as well. Probably the route I'll take - Latitude with the armor upgrade.

Soph9,

Was the D3o armour comfortable in the knee area during long days in the saddle? The standard Klim CE armour in my Traverse pants irritates my knees during long rides.

Thanks,

Yes but at times I needed to readjust the armour buy making sure it was Velcro into place better. You can sort of adjust the position in the knee area. I bet with this new suit it will maybe have a better way to keep the pads in place?

To anyone in Ontario Canada. Dualsport Plus has a sample of each suit in their showroom as we speak. They will only have them for a few more days so if you would like a touchy feely come on in soon before they go back. They can also take pre-orders if you wish.

Cheers

i'm looking into the latitude jacket.

i have the traverse pants with the standard armor package and i find it plenty comfortable. it works for me and so no need to spend more $ on D30. i like the traverse pants and don't see needing any more bells and whistles in the pant category, ie upgrading to latitude pants. the traverse pants are awesome for ADV riding. i have hip and knee armor and the knee armor is 3 place adjustable.

what i did not like was the traverse jacket however, so i only bought the pants and then i'd wait see what klim had in store for the future. currently i have a grey revit mesh jacket w/ armor (and non goretex style zip in rain linner)but want to compliment the direct to fabric goretex traverse pants up top. i looked at the badlands, but the price is overboard and i don't need all that tech. the latitude looks to be a perfect match for my traverse pants. i'd go for the light grey as i hate overheating with black and i find most of the dirt and such ends up on your pants over time more than jacket. the traverse pants i have are the grey combo color and that works for me. i'd say the grey latitude pants are too light a color for pants and they will get very grungy. that sealed the deal for me the darker grey traverse pants are the ideal match.

...i also have the new style grey dakar pants which are awesome when i know it's dry and i'll wear my revit jacket with those pants on days like that. if i know there will be weather or it's tour time my ideal is the latitude/traverse setup.

i also use a grey XD3 helmet so my friends call my capt. grey man, but on hot as hell days i'm more comfortable then their black setup.

what does D30 feel like when it's colder?
i've also heard the D30 is sizably smaller than the standard armor in the traverse pants. i know my standard armor completely fills up the pockets and the sideways (each edge) velcro strips are open. if the D30 is smaller, are the sideways velcro strips connected again to make a smaller armor pocket?

Yep, we covered that on the first page, but they're now letting retailers add it to their websites and start taking pre-orders for delivery in October.

I wonder if that means the one I ordered in July will show up in October.

When I talked to Klim, they told me they're supposed to be shipping "at the end of October". I'm sure they told you the same thing. But... We all know things can happen, stuff get's pushed back... etc. The fact that they and other retailers are adding the new gear to their websites is a good sign that delivery might be close.

Did you give someone money for the suit when you "ordered" it? Or did you give them an indication of interest?
