    It's on hwy 7 about 7 miles south of Jasper Arkansas.

    Revzilla does a good job of video reviews on gear if you see something you might be interested in.

    The question is regarding the pants. Her first comment to me was that the front sits very low, like 2" below her belly button, and not 2" above at her waist line as her old Olympia pants.

    How does this work for you ladies out there? Is the low rise of these a problem? We are working with a size 16 if that matters. My wife has a defined waist, so this is not her norm in how pants sit, especially riding gear, where one would think more coverage is better.

    Comments? Are all Klim women's pants this way?
    I just got my Altitude jacket and pants today at EuroSport in Asheville. I'm 5'4 and the pants fit great, with the front snaps at right about my navel. The jacket fits great as well, with no tightness of the sleeves. Awhile back I had the Artemis jacket and pants when we had the GS, and noticed that the pant's waist was lower than the Altitude. That took a bit of getting used to. I like the Altitude fit much better.

    We went to the Klim HQ and store in Rigby, ID about 18 months ago. Annie tried on over ten pair of pants before she found a pair that fit. Evidently women who ride are not expected to have long legs. They do make good gear.

    In the past Debbie could not buy Klim pants because the tall sizes were only available in size 6, 8, and 10.
    Debbie wears 12 Tall and that size is available now.

    Thanks for comparing the two suits.

    We need a picture of the new suit

    We'll try to remember to take one when we go the Knobbies' Christmas party next weekend. If not then, we'll see you and Debbie in Texas in April.
