Klim Neck Brace Survey

Gear Junkie over here in Klim land. We are in the early stages of a new Rally jacket design for 2017 and the topic of Neck Braces came up once again. We are looking for some feedback on this topic. Please take one minute of your time to fill out this very quick survey. When the clock strikes January 5th we will select one of the survey partakers, and he or she will win a new Overland Jacket on me!

i took the survey but wanted to add some more info. I personally have been asking klim to make a leatt jacket for years (one that normal humans can afford). i saw jonah with one at the dakar, so i know they can/have/could do it. i finally gave up and stopped calling and emailing. bought a TLD Chris Blais rally jacket and have made due since.

in other words.....IT'S ABOUT TIME!

just my $.02,

laramie

For what its worth, this survey is for those that have and wear a neck brace only.

No neck brace, don't waste your time.

Yea, I wasted my time too. However, I am interested in a possible purchase.

I am too, and would have liked to offer my two cents.

Leatt

survey taken. I tried a Leatt Road brace from revzilla after a couple head first tumbles off road. One left me feeling like I was lucky to walk away. Once I got used to it I feel naked without it - and often wear except for local errands. I don't have a brace/jacket combo but can see that being a nice addition.

The brace collar is one of the best features of my Rally Jacket. If that goes away, I wouldn't look at buying another. I wish the Badlands also had that feature - other than style, there really is no reason to not have a collar compatible jacket.
