KLIM is a company based on building products for specific purposes and, frankly, building it better than anyone else. So, when the Idaho locals got together over a two-day, self-created motorcycle challenge, they didn’t know they had started a full-on development project for a new generation of motorcycle riding gear. But that’s just what happened.
KLIM’s 626 Series was a race before it was an apparel collection. Take $600 and buy/build a motorcycle. Take 2 days. Race your buddies over 600 miles. That’s how 626 was born. And it showed KLIM’s team the importance of adaptability, improvisation and, most of all, how to take in the experience of motorcycling.
626 isn’t about style or fashion, 626 is riding without limitations or restrictions held to motorcycling’s categories. As such it is inherently multi-sport. It is at home on any ride over any terrain. It is motorcycle gear that is anti-niche and anti-urban. We’re talking rat bikes that will break down and riding buddies who help you fix them. It’s less about what you’re on, and more about what you’re doing. 626 is about riding. And riding gear that can do anything. It’s time to play outside.
The KLIM 626 Series consists of two jackets, a pair of pants and a pair of gloves. All represent the ethos of what riding simplicity is meant to be—timeless style, subdue branding, understated technology, versatility and real value. This is riding gear you can count on—the multi-tool of apparel ready for work and play.
626 Drifter Jacket

The Drifter is perfect for quick rides and long weekend explorations. Incorporating a timeless work wear style, the Drifter brings credibility to any environment. You likely won’t wear it in a crowd, but if you did, you’d be blending in superbly with its classic button-faced magnetic closures, exposed zippers, plaid print lining and subtle branding. Tech is under the radar but real—ventilation ports under the arms, D3O armor systems, magnetic closures, action back construction for a full-range of motion and more.
