I have posted info about the new KLIM gear before but dealers are now shipping the new Badlands and Latitude ADV suits. We are HUGE fans of KLIM gear not only because this is a company that listens to the riders who buy their stuff, but it is truly ADV gear, waterproof without liners and extremely comfortable while be made with top quality material. They also sell long pants sizing as well.
We are not paid employees of KLIM just LOVE sharing what works for us. We hope the new Latitude will be in our future. We have been wearing the Traverse for a year now and it has been almost perfect. We knew the new gear was on the horizon and now that it is here in the flesh, the Latitude seems to really be what we are looking for. The Latitude simply has hip gators for rider to use and open while sitting to give a little more room. But for the women out there this is a HUGE addtition because it may allow for we grrls to fit into smaller jacket sizing with using the hip gators all the time. Plus, the new gear has more pockets than the Traverse. We need pockets while traveling and this is a nice addition that the Traverse really lacks.
Have a look and if you are lucky to find a dealer who has these in stock, maybe try them on for size. ;-)
Some say KLIM is too expensive. I think if we found this gear in the first place we would have saved money in the long run. We have been through so many brands, types of set up and so far KLIM is the closest to what we need in gear without sacrificing comfort and safety.
