Look great, high quality & warm. Never a problem going on year 3.
And, I don't look like everyone else in a klim starter suit <img src="https://www.hardcoresledder.com/forums/members/84561-bobbynj66-albums-emots-picture8518t-lol2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="" class="inlineimg" /> THAT, is over priced junk.
I agree. LOVE my Motorfist suits. I have 2. Hubby has the Carbide bibs and a jacket as well. Loves them.

Even though I sell Klim gear now, my Carbide jacket is still my go to jacket for brutal cold weekends. Best jacket ever made for high speed cold temp riding!
Too bad Motorfist discontinued it for 2020. At $500 it didn't sell well. But I'll tell you what, at -30 in Quebec, I'm comfortable in it all day long.

Having said that, I am pretty confident they aren't going to be slamming the doors shut anytime soon like others have speculated.
They are in desperate need of new salesmen and distributors though. Thats the key to their survival moving forward. What they had over the last 18 months was an even worse than worse case scenario manager.

Ready when you are!

There's nothing new on there whatsoever.
They said there would be, but the only thing "new" is the dropping of 50% of their lineup.

Nor is it a new website.

They are just being managed by a new 3rd party company that Textron put into place.
