Klim Carlsbad Jacket
Engineered for excellent mobility, protection and comfort when riding, this is the light and fast, waterproof riding gear solution for hard-charging adventure riders.
The Klim Carlsbad Jacket has been redesigned, built to an even higher standard from the chassis of its proven, highly mobile predecessor. Engineered for excellent mobility, protection and comfort when riding, the Carlsbad Jacket features dramatically improved core and arm ventilation, greater abrasion resistance, more refined storage options and improved impact protection. This is the light and fast, waterproof solution for hard-charging adventure riders.
The jacket features a Gore-Tex performance shell and is guaranteed to keep you dry. There are 630D Cordura Ripstop abrasion resistant twisted yarn overlays on the shoulders and elbows, while the main body is constructed with FPL400 fabric (also used in the Klim Badlands Pro Jacket). The redesigned Carlsbad Jacket has much more material durability and abrasion resistance than its predecessor. The jacket has 3M™ Scotchlite C790 carbon black reflective material at strategic places for biomotion recognition. The jacket has a double headed front zipper.
The jacket features an integrated armour system, with D3O CE Level 2 LP2 Pro shoulder and elbow armour and a D3O CE Level 2 back pad. The armour system is a level higher than the earlier Carlsbad jacket, so you get more protection. The shoulder and elbow armour pad pockets are adjustable for the right fit. The armour pads are removable. There is also Klimatek™ cooling mesh liners in the armour pockets as well as an engineered spacer mesh in the back-pad pocket. The jacket also has a zippered access point to run a kidney belt through (sold separately).
Improved ventilation is ensured with 2 double-headed forearm zippered vents, 2 chest vents and 2 vertical back exhaust vents. With these, air flows in the jacket and out of the jacket efficiently, ensuring better air flow while riding. It also has a collar tab back feature to allow increased airflow to the upper chest area.
The redesigned Klim Carlsbad Jacket comes with better and increased storage too! It has 8 external pockets and 6 internal pockets. More specifically it has 1 forearm emergency ID stat card / hidden stash pocket, 2 water resistant front cargo pockets, 2 front handwarmer pockets, 1 oversized waterproof chest pocket, 1 water resistant chest pocket, 1 spot tracker / utility pocket on chest, 2 lower internal zippered stash pockets, 1 left chest internal pocket with headphone port, 1 right internal zipper pocket, 1 right internal drop pocket and 1 concealed document pocket behind the back pad. Whoa! Now that is a ton of storage!
Superior comfort and fit are aided with a moisture-wicking polygiene anti-odour liner, soft collar liner, an adjustable cinch collar, 2 quick adjust forearm straps, adjustable velcro cuff closures, an adjustable bottom hem, a jacket to pant zip connector, YKK zippers and glove-friendly zipper pulls.
The redesigned Klim Carlsbad Jacket has been taken to the next level on all fronts – improved impact protection, enhanced ventilation and comfort and increased, and refined storage!
