We wear KLIM. WHY? Watch this video and everything they claim so far we have found to be true. One thing the video forgot to say is how great their customer service is, how great the warranty is on their gear and how great their gear lasts. Waterproofness and durability are two things we were looking for when shopping around. We spent a lot of money on less expensive gear trying to find our way.
I wish someone would have pointed us into the KLIM direction from the beginning…we would have found a way to save our money. The Traverse suit, the one we wear right now is not completely off the charts $$ wise but their Latitude, Badlands and Rally suits get up there in price. Worth it? depends if you need your gear to be convenient when it comes to waterproofing and breath-ability. If you like your own layering choice as we do KLIM is for you.
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 Latitudeseems 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.
We wear this stuff and are looking forward to trying out the new gear. If you don’t like buying gear that has tons of layers and needs a water proof liner or rain gear to go over, then KLIM is the way to go. No, we are not paid to say this nor to get we KLIM gear for free….just believers! Choose your own layers and voila….you got yourself gear that can be worn 365 days a year!
One thing is for sure KLIM seems to listen to their buyers because these two new suits really have had a lot of input from people like us and KLIM made changes and look what they have come out with…absolutely the most comfortable gear we have ever worn and we own the TRAVERSE.
And of course the Diamond Suit the Adventure Rally…the most expensice suit KLIM makes.
