That is one sharp piece of riding kit. If I hadn't just received my rally pro today,(which I love by the way), I would send you a pre order for this suit. Klim really hit this one out of the ball park. I think they are going to give a lot of other manufacturers a run.

Question

Is either jacket neck brace compatible?

I like the Badland but like the tapered cut of the latitude! Any chance you can pass on to Klim to put internal taper elastic on the Badland?!

Too bad KLIM does not make their release dates coincide with the Spring riding season!

yes that would be nice but...
my guess they are working tripple overtime just to get the product to market.
we would love to have all of our maps come out that way but that is not always possible.

I am pretty interested in Klim's two new suits, I am excited to try them on, but could they cut back on the number of logos that are on them? I understand the want for recognition but fewer logos would be more tasteful and better looking imho.

Great Jacket

I too saw the jacket at the Indy show. This by far is the best jacket Klim has come out with. What I like about it, they removed some of the fluff that the Adventure Jacket has, which most people won't use and just left the key items at a price point that works. $1400 is a little hard to swallow, where $849 is doable for the avid rider. I'm just bummed it won't be ready until Fall. Of course I offered to wear that jacket at the show and test it for them, but they laughed and said, "oh, we haven't heard that one before, of course by all means take it and tell us what you think". Guess what, the jacket is still in their hands.

I'm going to pre-order the jacket and just wear the stink out of my other jackets this summer, knowing I'll have a new jacket to wear this next winter.

we know your name

Someone tell KLIM we know their name and do not need to see the K logo and their named spelled out on each side of their suits. A little more subtle. Seriously, I love KLIM but the more I look at their new suits the more the advertising gets to me. Just put your K in strategic places and your name on the back or wherever...just not all over.

Exactly! The K logo and the KLIM branding is redundant. Less is more when it comes to logos. Might be putting that jacket purchase off till fall now

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE their stuff but............I said the same thing here about their other new jacket!! Post #4 http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=662075

If they compare their items to other high end outdoor equipment, which they do, then this should be obvious........reduce the bling!!

Too much blinggy KLIM written everywhere........ghost it out, outline, or remove it!! I feel like we're going back into the 80's with brand advert's!! and that's not good!!

You're gonna be hard pressed finding a human being that actually wants to be a walking billboard. Thing is, you'll probably buy it anyway, so where is Klims motivation?

Closest suit to these is revits new stuff, but they have such a poor durability rap, their out of the running for lots of folks.

I'll put my vote in too. Hey Klim, ditch the goofy logos everywhere!! There I did it. I doubt theyll listen to that particular bit of feedback.

Agreed!!! Although my REV'IT Cayenne Pro has been solid the 3 years I've had it!

Rev'it's good at keeping a clean look......hope KLIM fallows though since this jackets still not going to be out till late this year anyway!

Something tells me KLIM is watching, reading and most notably *listening*. I say keep the feedback coming folks.

You may have more input than you think at this point.

If that's the case then......

*Make the jackets (especially the Badland Pro) Neck Brace compatible!
*Reduce all the KLIM Bling name everywhere!
*Add draw string pulls around the waist for the Badland Pro!
