ADVENTURE TESTED

When planning for that epic long Adventure, you need an Adventure suit that is waterproof, full of safety features, well ventilated and that will withstand the beating of the harsh off-road riding without any problem. Basically, you need something built like a Tank! When the best is required, you can't find anything better than the KLiM Adventure Rally Suit!

This has been our favorite Adventure Suit for the last 3 years. We have done almost exclusively off-road riding with it, and it has seen all sorts of weather conditions. For non-stop downpours that went on for days, till the hot Greek summers with 38+ degrees of heat.

The 3-layer Gore-Tex used by the Adventure Rally in conjunction with the Superfabric and D3O Xergo protectors at shoulders, elbows, knees, and hips, D3O Viper back, Deflexion Spacer Mesh chest and quadriceps and finally PoronXrd the coccyx, have a rugged feeling and you feel like a knight in his armor. Even when things go south and you end up on your back, most of the impact gets absorbed by the suit and not much is transferred to your body. You're simply just smiling with confidence and get on your way ...

Mythical Routes IMG 1797

In real driving off-road conditions, the Adventure Rally reminds you of its origin as a thoroughbred outfit from Rally races like the Dakar. Even with full 3 liters of water inside the back-bladder and all back and side pockets full of tools, food, and extra layers, the inner harness eliminates the weight, that just disappears. Its unique Rally technology with internal weight distribution straps and kidney belt distributes evenly transported kilos throughout the body. Whatever the conditions, this is a unique and do-it-all tool. It will bring you back safe, no matter what.

The only complaint that we have with the Adventure Rally is that even though it distributes its weight better than anything we have ever tried, the weight itself is a lot. It is built like a tank, but it weighs like one too.
