Another part of Klim’s new 626 line of gear, the Drifter Jacket is the baby brother of the Revener Jacket, touting CE level protection, a more affordable price, and simple, sleek looks that blend in nicely with everyday clothes.
At its core, the Drifter is an armored, waxed-canvas jacket that’s designed for city riding and some light adventuring during the spring and fall transition months. If you want to stretch the Drifter’s versatility a little further into cool weather, the waist-length fit of the jacket has plenty of room for a jacket or hoodie while staying slimmer than a typical American cut jacket.
Overall, the Drifter is good for the unassuming, style-conscious rider that wants to stay protected from both abrasion and impact. And the more nuanced features like the magnetic button closures, discrete branding, and nicely-done motion panels make the Drifter a very easy jacket to live with every time you’re on or off the bike.
