I'm looking to replace my "normal wear" Klim Overland Jacket. I paid $369 for my Overland and is now replaced with the Carlsbad with sells for $699. That's quite the jump! Before I order, has anyone tried on the Carlsbad jacket? Klim warranty isn't all that great. The sleeve on my Overland tore. Upon further inspection, the material in that particular area is super thin and in a crease, so that material has no chance to survive the life of the jacket. I did contact Klim about this and their response is "normal wear." Which I think will be a common response for anything that goes wrong with their life time warranty items! Previous to this, I had threads come loose on the cuffs and around the neck. Yes, they would repair it, but the shipping to and from would be on my dime. Plus the wait time is undetermined. So in a nut shell, not worth it. Having said that, Tony's Tailor Shop did the repair. He doesn't have Gortex thread and not certified for Gortex repair. BUT he did use a thread that he's uses on fire fighting items. So far held up great, greats guys and very affordable. I think each cuff was $5 I will get him to stitch up the tear in my Overland, but not likely it will be waterproof. It will be good as a spare jacket.
