I'm a big fan of Klim gear. I don't like the fact that Polaris now owns it. OTOH, you will be hard pressed to find anything that has a better fit and finish. I have Klim moto pants that have many years of use that I still wear today. My Badlands gear is amazing!! All day comfort in the saddle, convenient pockets for maps and SPOT, etc. You really get what you pay for. What makes Klim gear above most of the rest is durability in get offs. And the customer service is the best out there. My local Klim dealer can send the gear out and have it repaired in just a few days at no cost to me.

The Hardanger suit looks to be a really nice upgrade from the Aerostich Roadcrafter. This is about as good of a review as they come. The video is a little long but I really like this guy. He does very honest and real riding condition reviews on tires and gear. I know the area he is riding in and it's challenging for even a lightweight dual sport bike. This would be a great commuter or touring suit that's easy on and off.

I’ve been interested in Klim gear for a couple years, but it’s pretty difficult to buy because it very rare that any dealer will have it in stock in a size that will fit a regular sized person, sure they would be happy to order it but I want to know if it actually fits before spending any money. In my opinion Klim’s marketing is crap . I hear they have an actual factory where they build the stuff somewhere out in Idaho so I might try stopping there sometime next summer. Dennis Kirk and CycleGear are both Klim dealers about 200 miles from where I live and I’ve called both but they don’t have the stuff in stock but they would be perfectly happy to order it for me.

I picked one up a couple months ago. It’s a nice suit. I wear it mostly for commuting. I stay completely dry even during heavy rain.

On sizing...the local BMW dealer was good enough to order me one and I paid after I tried it on to confirm that it fit.

I like Aerostich, and was pretty much against Klim for years because much of it is made in China. I still don't appreciate China goods for the most part, and not all Klim gear is made there, but have to say every piece of Klim gear I own is great. They do make nice things, and suspect the suit, if it fits you would be a good one to say the least.

So, does that mean that a non-regular sized person (like me :oops:) will be able to find their size in stock?

Lol. The dealer that I went to had all but one size in stock (the one I needed). I was pretty impressed by that. That was $6,000+ in product on one rack.

I was impressed enough by the suit (quality wise), that I decided to go ahead and order one. They were running a sale for the holidays too, so I got 15% off...which worked out to be cheaper than I could have gotten it for online. Buy local, if you can.

Not China, If it makes any difference.

My Aerostitch Roadcrafter is excellent. And made in the USA! I upgraded from Klim pants and jacket.
I have the roadcrafter as well, it's okay in the winter and cooler months, but unbearable in the summer, especially in the north east. Klim, even though made in China, addresses that issue with lighter materials and more vents. 2 cents from a gear junkie
