Klim Carlsbad Adventure Jacket & Pants Unveiled | ADV Apparel

Klim has unveiled the Carlsbad Adventure collection of motorcycle apparel, designed specifically for the big-bike adventure rider. Klim says the Carlsbad was isn’t fashion-focused, but rather designed for function: “This is function at its absolute core—engineered to perform at a high level, and capable of absolute adaptation to personal preference.”

The Carlsbad adventure motorcycle jacket and pants are designed with a Gore-Tex Performance Shell base for complete waterproofing, and a Cordura rip-stop exterior. The suit was designed with a streamlined fit, and features loads of ventilation and cargo, D30 armor, and 3M Scotchlite reflective accents.

“Carlsbad is intended for riders who enjoy an active riding experience and require durable apparel for many years of use. Carlsbad delivers the perfect balance of premium features and minimal mindset to be a dependable partner as you chase the best miles in the world,” Klim says.
