    I really like the snaps at the bottom of the pants...better than the Traverse use of Velcro....the improvements I am noticing as I look closer are really one's that prove KLIM has listened to all the critics out there to better their product and produce 2 new suits that should appeal to so many more riders out there. I truly believe KLIM has hit a home run by introducing the Badlands and Latitude as the go between. I see the Traverse being phased out to be honest but keep the top notch ADV Rally with these two and they have covered almost all DS riders and serious dirt bike riders too!

    I agree with JMO. Nowhere near enough venting on any of Klim's gear AFAIC. Zipped openings aren't enough for really hot weather. Large mesh panels are heaps better, and the Revit (I think) with the roll down covering are pretty good compared to the completely removable panels. Although I think those still aren't large enough. Removable sleeves are brilliant and pretty common on Australian brands, which overall are pretty low quality unfortunately (apparently). :deal

    Hello Miss Lady :-)

    These guys will probably not be available for Pre-Order for a while, but we will have a product page soon.

    Remember they don't hit until the Fall.

    No worries on the Hi-Jacking guys. I love hearing all of your feedback.

    Best,

    Anthony

    Hey Guys,

    We shot our first look video on the Klim Latitude Jacket and Pants last week and wanted to make sure it hit all of your radar who have been following the conversation.

    EDIT: Video Removed for now.

    All questions welcome as usual.

    great video Anthony...a couple of things on this suit.. Maybe KLIM should allow the collar to be secured when open like the Badlands. Will you be able to fit D3o armour in this suit? Like the snaps at the bottom of the pants...like the liner in both the jacket and pants. The Traverse does not have one.

    Hey Guys,

    We were asked to take it down as some things need to be sorted out. Sorry for the confusion. Hope to have it back up soon.

    Happy to answer any questions.

    Best,

    Yes, please reconsider the sleeve logo.

    As it it looks a lot better than my Traverse. I too hate the pattern on the Traverse. But function wins over looks and the Traverse performs well for my use.

    BTW I hate the contrasting pocket colors. And I bet the waist adjustment would be better if it was a belt than went around the back. I am big in the shoulders and not in the waist, most jackets run out of adjustment before they are tight enough to keep the air out.

    I agree as i deciding between this and the Rukka Armas. I like the argonaut as i dont like pockets but the armas is more accepted.

    Updates, pleassssse.

    My next gear has been narrowed down to the following: Klim Latitude, Rev-it Sand and Aerostitch Darien or Roadcrafter not sure which. Another option is a 180 degree turn from the above, Motoport Marathon with a mix of stretch and mesh kevlar - not sure i want to see the price tag on this one.
