Klim Updates Touring Gear for Ladies and Gents
Ladies and gentlemen, excellent news! Klim has upgraded and redesigned the men’s Latitude and women’s Altitude jackets and pants for 2023 to make them lighter, more adjustable, and more stylish.
The new generations—fifth to Latitude and fourth for Altitude—introduce a number of features to improve the comfort and fit of the jackets and pants. Both gear sets have been developed with a focus on ventilation and weather protection.
The jackets have received an updated, European-style fit. Added GORE-TEX stretch panels on the back and gussets enhance mobility and comfort.
Protection comes from heavy-duty shoulder overlays, which combine with adjustable CE Level 1 armor on the shoulders and elbows. There’s a similar back pad with a similar protection level.
For ventilation, riders have plenty of options. The jackets feature two cross-core chest vents, two back vents, and sizable and adjustable vents on both wrists. In addition, you get a moisture-wicking, antimicrobial mesh liner and perforated goat leather elbows for improved breathability during hot weather riding.
The Latitude and Altitude pants have also received their fair share of updates. They now have new stretchy GORE-TEX panels on the back, knees, thighs, and crotch for easier movement on and off the bike. You can add to that the perforated inner knee leather for an extra bit of breathability.
The knees, seat area, and lower cuffs feature heavy-duty Cordura overlays to keep them in tip-top condition for a longer time. For protection, the pants sport adjustable hip and knee armor.
The Latitude Jacket retails for $799.99 and Pants for $649.99, while the Altitude Jacket goes for $699.99 and Pants for $549.99. Both gear sets are available in black, blue, and gray for that perfect matching couple’s riding outfit.
