Klim Powerxross Pullover

Looking for opinions on the klim powerxross pullover. Can it be worn over a pressure suit with a Leatt brace? Also is it a cold weather only jacket? I would be wearing it over pressure and jersey.

They are basically a Gore-Tex shell. - It will fit over a pressure suit if you pick the correct size. Probably one size up, depending on the suit. - They are not specifically designed for a neck brace.

Here is a video from RevZilla.

It is just a light weight shell. You will need to add layers for cold weather.

I would think it would make a nice enduro jacket for cold/nasty weather. Not sure how it would fare in warm weather? It might be just fine for that as well.

It should fit over armor if you size it right.

I wear a KLIM Tomahawk jacket for ADV touring riding. I wear a pressure suit under it.

That is what I'm looking for, a summer wet/cool weather enduro that will fit over a pressure suit. Would it be possible to still wear the leatt on top of it?

Yes you can wear the brace on the outside, might need to adjust the brace a little depending on how loose you wear it. Several US riders wore that jacket at last years Dakar Rally.

Dont' know if they're neck-brace-compatible or not... kinda doubt it.

But ... it's more of a shell, a wind-/water-proof layer, than a "jacket".

As far as armor compatibility, yep. Almost every sledder I know wears a Tekvest underneath. Unless your armor's really bulky it'll fit. Round the size up if you're inbetween and it'll work fine.

They were highly modified for a neck brace, with the high neck cut off.
