new KLIM line

wondering if anyone had any experience with the new Klim line of riding gear? I am heading to iceland and am looking for one layer riding gear. ie no rain gear on top of riding gear. i already constantly ride in wet nad cold, would like to avoid the pita of stopping to put rain gear on. (pacific north west up to yukon and alaska etc). I'm eyeballing the Badlands Pro suit, other buddies wear the traverse. Its a lot of $ but i plan on getting 10+ years from it. anybody wearing klim?

I have KLIM snowmobile gear, and it's the best stuff I've ever owned.. I haven't worn the MC stuff, but would guess it to be of similar quality.. (Made in Canada)

what! made in canada? can't be. Its cheaper to buy out of the US. maybe i can buy it back without paying duty then! i didnt see on the website where it was manufactured. now i really want american pricing.

Klim headquarters are in Idaho. I believe at least some of their stuff is manufactured there as well.

My bad... My Klim Klimate jacket must have been made for the Canadian market, but that tiny little tag on the top, inside says Made In China..
Everything in the jacket is in English and French, and there's a bunch of mention of Ontario in the jacket tags, but the Made In tag tells the real tale..

Sorry..
