Cheryl and I have been wearing Alpinestars Scout Boots for years now and actually LOVE them…but like anything else new boots come out on the market always tempting us to try another.
UPDATE on our KLIM Latitude Jacket COLLAR ISSUES!
Pictures to follow but here is my update regarding our collar issues on our new KLIM Latitude jackets. I posted this on the ADV Riders Forum.
GREAT Customer Service KLIM! Thanks!
Hey guys and gals…we contacted KLIM about our collar issues and ended up sending them back for modifications. WE had to use KLIM to stay within the warranty and of course to keep the integrity of the jacket/Gore Tex.
We are pleased to announce KLIM shorten our current collars by 2 cm and added some more felt around the flap as well as added a little piece of Velcro to hold the flap when the jacket is open. I will post pics when I can to show how the new shortened collars no longer hit our helmets or impede with our shoulder checks, the collar no longer jabs into my neck and the helmet strap no longer gets caught on the Velcro for the flap.
Now, KLIM will charge $80 for this mod and I would suggest calling down there to get particulars on your own issue if you have any. We are much happier because we are much more comfortable in these jackets now. So, just passing along what we did to rectify what we felt was a very unfortunate collar issue for the price we paid. Seems for now this is what they are going to do for all new production jackets. Take them down 2cm or 1 inch since ours worked.
When I get the chance I will post pictures of the new collars and the height. We got both our jackets done. That’s it for now just wanted to get the word out if you own this jacket, KLIM Latitude and hate the collar call them @ Ph. 208.552.7433 and ask how they can make your collar feel better. Any questions feel to post them in the comments.
Sorry that the video is a bit dark and no zooms. Cheryl is away and I promise our second impressions video will be better done. Hope this video will provide you all with some useful info and isn’t too painful to watch.
UPDATE: We sold both suits. Just turned out they were not fir us, too stiff.
840D Cordura Shell = thick
More to come about this new suit by KLIM soon!
We wear KLIM. WHY? Watch this video and everything they claim so far we have found to be true. One thing the video forgot to say is how great their customer service is, how great the warranty is on their gear and how great their gear lasts. Waterproofness and durability are two things we were looking for when shopping around. We spent a lot of money on less expensive gear trying to find our way.
I wish someone would have pointed us into the KLIM direction from the beginning…we would have found a way to save our money. The Traverse suit, the one we wear right now is not completely off the charts $$ wise but their Latitude, Badlands and Rally suits get up there in price. Worth it? depends if you need your gear to be convenient when it comes to waterproofing and breath-ability. If you like your own layering choice as we do KLIM is for you.
