KLIM Altitude Pants Review


I initially reviewed this new KLIM suit when I first got it back in April. Now that I have well over 8000 KM’s in it or 5000 miles I have some more impressions. I will try to stick with the facts of my experience with this suit and cut to the chase. These impressions I will send to KLIM. I have all ready been in touch with them regarding the staining issue.

Second up the PANTS detailed Review!

Temperature range I have ridden in has been below freezing and as high as 35 C or 95 F. Been in piss pouring rain for hours, hail, high winds and HOT weather/cold weather patterns. Longest day riding in the suit 12 hours.

KLIM’s ALTITUDE Gore Tex Shell – Part I the Jacket


**Please all women interested in this Jacket please try it on with your liner of choice before you buy it.  The collar could be an issue regarding how tight it will feel around your neck.  TRY THIS suit on in general before BUYING!  It will be in your BEST interest…trust me!**

Let me preference this review by saying I am just your average run of the mill female ADV rider and all my reviews are honest based on WHAT I believe and hope they are  useful somehow.  Had to get that out because I get many emails from folks criticizing I am not an expert…no kidding…i know that and completely aware. 😉 Now, on to my initial review.

Today I will review the Jacket and for tomorrow I will review the pants. PICS  are all clickable for larger versions

**Remember to support your dealers who sell KLIM.  Not everyone does.  My dealer Pacific Motosports does, and for all you online buyers again shop Revzilla through this blog…great online company.  Tons a great companies and more seem to carrying the great line of KLIM products.

New KLIM GEAR for WOMEN – Meet the ALTITUDE


Did KLIM do what many of ADV grrls in general wanted?  Thanks Colleen for pointing me to REVZILLA (look to your right and click on the RevZilla widget to check this suit out)  who has the new KLIM Altitude Gore Tex Suit for women on their website.  Due out March 1st, 2014, KLIM said they would introduce a suit for females, similar to the Misano Latitude and I have to admit this sure looks like it.  Will they add black as an option?  I can’t wait to try this on for size literally.  I bought my Traverse gear in 2010 and I am ready to have a suit that fits better.  Retail price on par with the guys…$569.99 for the jacket and $489.99 for pants.  Not cheap but it’s female KLIM gear!!!! 😉  Thoughts????
