I am really smokin' pissed. On the 10th time I wore my klim traverse jacket the bottom slider of the zipper fell out. Since I was on a trip I couldn't put it out of order and send it right in so I tried to put a zipper stop on it and when that didn't work I tried to glue the bottom slider in place so I could use the jacket until I could get it fixed properly. All I did was put a little glue at the bottom of the slider to hold it in place so I didn't lose it en route and could line up the zipper to make it work. Well that didn't work and the slider came off and the zipper came apart and got stuck so I had to pull the zipper apart to get the jacket off which pulled off a few teeth. I fedexed it to them when I could ($65) for them to evaluate a warranty repair. klim which "guarantees their product against materials and workmanship defects for life" wouldn't repair it under warranty because I had tried a home repair. WELL , IF YOUR ZIPPER DIDN'T BREAK IN THE MIDDLE OF MY TRIP THEN I WOULDN'T HAVE TO FIX IT. Grrrr!! They wanted $80 to fix it plus money to send it back probably another $65 to get it back for a return trip. Screw that. $220 to fix a $300 jacket that shouldn't have had this problem in the first place. I have been buying and using adventure gear for a long time (30+ years) and I have never had a zipper fail. I spend the money and buy quality gear so it doesn't fail when I need it. Other complaints: The pitzips snag on the surrounding material. The fit is adequate for 13 year old prepubescent girls which I guess the Europeans think we should all look like. The arms don't have enough room to put in D3O armor and flex your arm 120 degrees The collar is too big to seal out the elements. (a big error in an all weather jacket) The D3O armor has only adequate protection for street riding and you could not fit a pressure suit or armored mesh shirt underneath unless you are built like the aforementioned 13 year old.
