Re: Klim Overshell Pants - Caution

i witnessed a mates low speed lowside (no names but he is on here) wearing some Klim gear and it literally fell apart. The worrying thing was that the hip armour came out but he was very lucky not to receive tarmac rash as there was a gaping hole about a foot long. I think he only escaped more sever...
