KLIM Launches Next-Gen Kodiak ADV Suit With Included Down Jacket

 The brand's premium touring suit gets a range of updates and new features.

Published on 02.01.2021

KLIM has announced the next generation of their top of the line touring suit — the Kodiak. Redesigned and packed with features, the updated Kodiak jacket and pants offer several improvements in comfort and versatility for long journeys. 

The new Kodiak features upgrades across the board, including better mobility for range of motion, new fabric patterning for more comfort on the bike, more airflow with better venting, comprehensive weather protection with a removable storm collar, and an included down jacket for cold weather.

The front zipper incorporates a storm flap for wind and water protection.

KLIM states the inclusion of “a fully wearable, packable down jacket and a 4-way stretch storm collar with the new Kodiak Jacket, creates a truly comprehensive multi-season garment.” The down jacket and Kodiak are designed to fit true-to-size, meaning you don’t have to size up or down for the layered garments. The down jacket is also designed to be worn completely on it’s own and can be compared to KLIM’s new Maverick Down Jacket, which is also available separately.

Major comfort upgrades include new fabric layouts that are engineered for extended periods of time in a seated riding position. This is partially accomplished with new use of GORE-TEX stretch fabrics in the underarms and crotch, and some lighter key body fabrics to reduce bulk. 

The Kodiak includes premium components and materials such as GORE-TEX, D3O armor, high-end leather overlays, 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material, 90/10 goose down, and YKK Zippers. According to KLIM “This new version of the Kodiak is engineered down to the finest detail for a perfect riding experience.”
