When Klim got together over a two-day, self-created motorcycle challenge, they didn’t know they had started a full-on development project for a new generation of motorcycle riding gear. But that’s just what happened.
Klim’s 626 Series was a race before it was an apparel collection. The challenge: take $600 and buy/build a motorcycle. Take two days. Race your buddies over 600 miles. That’s how 626 was born. It isn’t about style or fashion; 626 is riding without limitations or restrictions held to motorcycling’s categories. As such, it is inherently multisport. It is at home on any ride over any terrain. It is motorcycle gear that is anti-niche and anti-urban. It’s less about what you’re on, and more about what you’re doing.
The 626 Series consists of two jackets, a pair of pants, and a pair of gloves. All represent the ethos of what riding simplicity is meant to be—timeless style, subdue branding, understated technology, versatility, and value.
The Drifter Jacket takes the heritage of waxed cotton canvas material to the Klim level with a high-end waxed Cordura canvas body, providing ultimate comfort and simple style. The Drifter is perfect for quick rides and long weekend explorations, incorporating a timeless work wear style. You likely won’t wear it in a crowd, but if you did, you’d be blending in superbly with its classic button-faced magnetic closures, exposed zippers, plaid print lining, and subtle branding. Tech is under the radar but real—ventilation ports under the arms, D3O armor systems, magnetic closures, action back construction for a full-range of motion, and more. Available in green, black, and blue in small to 3X from $299.99.
The 626 Revener Jacket is guaranteed to keep you dry. A military-inspired four-pocket, all-weather styled jacket, Revener provides the peace of mind Klim’s GORE-TEX Performance Shell construction delivers. It has increased ventilation options and more cargo capacity and magnetic closures throughout. Styling is inspired to work on any ride with muted colors, large cargo pockets, plaid interior prints, and button closure accents. The soft yet burly textured exterior remains tough yet comfortable. Available in blue and brown colors in small to 3X from $529.99.
Inspired by the hardest working apparel in the world, Klim’s cotton canvas double front riding pants are built to be the most comfortable motorcycle pants in the world—on and after the ride. A true multisport master, the Outrider’s armor pocket systems allow you to remove D3O knee and hip armor at your destination without taking the pants off. And the traditional jeans pocket layout and means your pocketknife and wallet are where they should be. The Outrider pant provides maximum comfort while you ride, work, fish, camp, or just relax. Available in light brown, dark brown, and black in sizes 28–42 regular and 30-38 tall (black only) from $169.99.
The 626 Rambler Glove goes from ride to work easily thanks to its ultra-supple deerskin leather construction—a tactile material with premium durability. Real riding tech comes from concealed knuckle and palm protection, a simple hook/loop closure system, and minimalist perforations to keep digits cool in the heat. Use them often and they’ll simply get better with age—a traditional glove for new experiences. Available in XS – 3X in natural deerskin for $69.99.
