with the way things are hotter than ever it's worth it to have one just in case. they pack very small when not used and cost under $40. all you need is some air moving in from the upper arm vents being open and bam you've got instant A/C inside your jacket.

motogear has em for $33 http://www.motogearoutlet.com/
but you need to call em to order.

The collar doesn't bother me either however, I wish the jacket had snaps to hold the collar open for warm weather riding.

Heated jacket liner

I'm considering the Latitude jacket and pants and was wondering if a heated jacket liner will fit under the latitude jacket?

Absolutely. I use a Gerbing liner. The Latitude is an outer shell; you use whatever liner -- or no liner -- you want. Same with the pants.

Sounds good. I like the idea of adding whatever liner is needed or not needed. Will like getting rid of the inner rain liner system in my present jacket.
Thanks for the info.

i finally popped

well i finally bought a latitude jacket. got it from touratech, they had the color and size i wanted. with free shipping about $550. great service. jacket looks great. well made. it is real hot here, but in early morning runs does great. lots of adjustments, stiff material and collar is a little tall for me. i believe the more i ride the more i will like this jacket. under arm vents seem a great idea. fit is really best when you are on the bike. is it worth the extra bucks, we will see. i do not believe it is a hot weather jacket. we only have a few weeks of hot in montana so i think it will be great for my riding.

I love Montana! I was just up there exploring a few days ago ... wearing my Latitude. I find the suit comfortable with an easy, almost elegant cut to it.

Anyone own RP 3 and the Lattitude? I'm sick of how heavy my RP3 is and especially when it gets wet. I'd like to know if the Latitude is lighter than the RP3.

Thanks

I would guess Klim can provide the weight. Have you checked the website?

Hey Soph9, I was among the last to depart. Feeling glum now that it's all done. I really enjoyed it ... so many genuine kindred spirits. Rain was, um, an adventure. But folks I rode with (know any of 'em ...?) dodged that bullet. And OF COURSE riding over from Jackson Hole in the pouring rain, I left the vents in my Latitude pants fully open ... Top half stayed nice 'n dry.

Yeah we got caught in the down pour heading back too...vents fully open like you and I was all dry believe it or not. Weird but true. Nice riding with you, great back country tour. We both really appreciated your lead and taking the time to show us eastern Idaho ADV style.
