Going back to KLIM Canada today with hopes I can get the sizing I need. I think since I am so used to wearing guy sizing I was a bit surprised by not only the jacket and it’s cut but also the pants. The KLIM Altitude jacket is more tailored than a guys jacket obviously. But seems to me to be too tailored in it’s cut. Made for a Tall lean gal versus a regular height kinda athletic build.
The pants run BIG…so if anyone grrl is looking at this suit, if you wear a 12 in pants I bet you would be a 10 in this suit. The jacket I got was a medium. Even with the side hip gators open the jacket was incredibly tight across the bust line…I am NOT busty and in the shoulders..I am not that broad. So, I hope a Large jacket and size 12 pants will fit my shape. I also hope I can just bring this suit back to the Langley warehouse which is 20 mins away from my house versus having to ship it back and pick up a new suit directly from the warehouse.
I hope KLIM agrees with my plan because I would like this suit today and begin breaking it in. Oh, the side/hand pockets on the pants are nice but way too shallow. There isn’t a cargo pocket on the pants either which I am sure the next generation will have. Just my first initial impression. Hand pockets on the jacket are great and if you need to compare this suit to one in the guys line? It would definitely be the Misano Latitude.
If I can get a suit in the new sizing I will put together a much more thorough review for sure. Just wanted to post I have actually seen the suit in person and at least got to try it on before it goes back. More later.
