Product Information

Some motorcycle products are easy to describe, but difficult to explain. Klim tell us that the Drifter is "designed for the 72 hour adventure: a recon mission in the Tetons, running down the underwater caves at the Yucatan". Frankly, that's not a lot of help, so let us tell you what we think. The Drifter is a lightweight, summer jacket that that meets the brief of not looking too much like a biking jacket. It's made from a lightly waxed cotton, so it will be waterproof in a shower; less so in a proper downpour. With no membrane, it's going to be pretty breathable, but the waxing will make it less well vented than, say, Klim's own Marrakesh. But it is nonetheless a pretty robust garment, as wax cotton is reasonably abrasion resistant. The Drifter also comes full kitted out with D3O, including a back protector. As ever with Klim, you get loads of pockets. Zips are by YKK. The garment is rated AA under the latest EN 17092 safety standard, which is as good as it gets as far as textile products are concerned.
