As discussed... 2011. Check with the Canadian dealer, he may still have some stock available or you might be able to order from the UK dealer. Just because the manufacturer is sold out, there may still be stock with dealers I suspect.

I know this is a slippery slope being in Equipment but we have a few jackets still available....just sayin'.

No pants though and yes, as suspected, it will be late 2010 or 2011 they've told us for a restock.

Gentlemen,

Just got word directly from the Klim Product Team that a new production run will be launched for December 2010 availability. Quantity will again be limited, but the PO has been placed and this is hard info.

Checking on whether this will include tall versions and if any revisions will be incorp'ed.

I don't know officially, but my guess is that that fabric minimums will preclude this.

I think I have a workaround to the collar issue.

Take the tab and secure it with the factory supplied velcro on the other end. Take the long flappy part that now won't stick to the velcro very well on the main center flap and twirl it around itself once or twice. Now, zip down the left pocket just enough to shove this little bit of fabric into it. Zip it up as much as you can, securing the fabric in the pocket.

Now, fold down the collar all the way around. I've been trying to be good about keeping it folded when off the bike to train it to have that crease to hold more naturally. It wants to pop back up.

The collar is now pretty well trained to stay put. Only the right side is not secured, but, after around 150 miles riding like this, I can report that you get lots of airflow around your neck. The collar does not flop around. There is no bulk around your neck and it's very comfortable.


I may add a couple pieces of velcro here and there so that you don't have to shove the fabric into the pocket but even like it is, I find it perfectly acceptable.

Klim if you're listening, I'd still prefer a different, more user friendly collar for warmer weather

As always, YMMV

I don't have many miles on my suit yet, but I agree with the previous comments about the collar. The standard one is a strange design that I don't really understand, and it is not particularly comfortable when zipped up (it doesn't bother me unzipped with the flap velcroed back).

I've yet to try the Leatt collar so will report back then. Thanks Jim for the tip on tucking the collar into the pocket.

Why not just Liquid Stich a few appropriately placed tabs of velcro to keep the collar folded over?

I was out yesterday afternoon for a couple hours wearing my Leatt brace and no collar and it was fine. Breezy around the neck, but no bunching or hindering of any movement.

Jim - good fix with the turn down and tuck!
