KILM gear - See Where it's Made

I just got into KLIM gear at the Nationals in Johnson City.

Here's an interesting video (to me) about the Company:

I do not ride dual-sport or dirt myself.  I was impressed that the KLIM Prez likes to ride and ride well.

I was kind of disappointed to find the Klim gloves I recently bought , although seemingly good quality and pretty expensive , were made in China  :-[

Yeah, Klim's products are actually built off-shore but all the design and engineering is done in the USA. The products are all contract work with different factories.
