UPDATED: Klim Latitude Jacket Video Released 8/15/2011
Following up from my post last night, here are prelim shots of the Fall 2011 Klim Latitude Jacket (yes its that far off ;-p). It's a Gore Performance shell geared for the rider who wants an all-season shell for cross-over adventure touring.
At $549 its a more road oriented version than the Klim Traverse, and it comes with CE rated armor.
It should fill the void for customers who just want a tech shell, vs a jacket that has a liner system included. The fit is a more tailored road cut vs the enduro cut of the Traverse, Badlands Pro or Adventure Rally.
Sizing is yet to be announced and the setup is not for everyone but should perform very well for its intended use on-road and in lighter offroad scenarios.
Take a peek of the candid of me wearing the Klim Latitude Pants and Jacket from the Indy Dealer show yesterday. There should be a silver version available as well.
