I think Latitute is going to be best Adventure riding where there is plent of high speed.
Good point, just depends on what you're riding.

If it's still warm in your neck of the woods would be interested in your impression of how well the pants vent with the zipper open.

I bet they vent the same as the Traverse which I have. OK for temps up to 80* or so. I hate to cook in the name of protection. I will not wear the Traverse or Latitude in the summer. The Latitude will be an upgrde to the Traverse for cold wet, late fall to early spring Adventure riding where there is high speed pavement.

nicely done!

I just picked up a Latitude yesterday and my local BMW dealer and it's a really nicely done jacket. i hadn't heard of them but was in the shop looking for a jacket that was fully waterproof(on the outer layer, not with a liner) vented, and armored. I was about to give up when they said, "we have one more option that was just delivered an hour ago, still in the crate in the back"

the pockets and details are right on.

i do agree w/ people on too many Klim logos but i'll let is slide or maybe remove any that can be unstitched. they are heading the way of Nike a while back- Nike went way over board. I am a designer and once saw a presentation by their design team about when they realized they had gone too far when they hit a record of 38 logos on 1 pair of sneakers- Klim, luckily you're not quite there yet but close!

Yea, the Reflective white KLIM on the arms was almost a no go for me. As was the weird pattern/colors of the Travese. I have lived witht he Traverse and I'm sure The look for the Latitude will be OK too. Better that some of the multi-color Adventrure jackets IMO.

Revzilla and Motorcycle Superstore started shipping product today. I should have mine by Friday.

Since you asked... here's a few. I am no model and my wife's no photographer but you'll get the point. I did my best Blue Steele while trying to explain to her- "Just take the picture- the inmates want to see the jacket!"
