    Yep, we covered that on the first page, but they're now letting retailers add it to their websites and start taking pre-orders for delivery in October.

    When I talked to Klim, they told me they're supposed to be shipping "at the end of October". I'm sure they told you the same thing. But... We all know things can happen, stuff get's pushed back... etc. The fact that they and other retailers are adding the new gear to their websites is a good sign that delivery might be close.

    Did you give someone money for the suit when you "ordered" it? Or did you give them an indication of interest?

    i think TT is now the largest (or one of them) Klim dealer in the country.
    Klim receives batches of gear and then sends it out to dealers.
    I'm sure when you order from TT, you are in line (first in, first out) to receive what they have been alotted on this shipment. ...if you really want this jacket, i'd get inline asap.

    i'm waiting till i'm back is the US.

    Yeah, Touratech has my credit card for a pre-order. Said they'd call to verify when they get them in. It was the salesman for Klim who said late October. Be nice to see it sooner. Not that I'm anxious or anything.:lol3

    I just phoned in and ordered my Latitude suit directly from Klim.

    They expect to receive them on or around October 25th, allow them a day to process them into inventory, then they'll be shipping out to customers. :D

    I was looking at the sizing on the pants and the waist range seems quite large for each size. I've never had and klim gear, does anyone think this large size range will result in a poor fit?

    Can we look forward to an in-depth review of this gear? I, for one, am very curious as to how it will perform.

    Oh phooey. He's so stingy with advice on equipment. I just hoped that he'd change his mind this one time. :cry

    Love this KLIM stuff,,,my Traverse was perfect yesterday morning when we got hit with a Heavy rainfall warning and guess what....it was heavy but my KLIM powerxross gloves leaked...especially the left one. Never have the leaked before but I have to admit this was a lot of rain in the hour long commute...but still...should not feel the rain penetrate through the glove that fast right?
