    These look like what I call muffs....remind me of my DOO ones. I wonder how they would fit behind the hand guards? Likely would be fine.

    I find that I use my cheap Crappy tire soft muffs more now on trips, not that I dont love my BRP clear view muffs, but the soft ones can be rolled up very tight and take little space in my luggage. Its nice to be able to remove them on a trip if it warms up.

    not a bad price at $59 if that is in CDN funds. there site is a bit screwy when going from US to CDN. shows them at the same price one way or another.

    Those new Klim Deflect Muffs are very nice - I got to try a set out last winter and was very impressed with them. I'm not really into the muff/gauntlet thing and in the past have really struggled at our store when selling them or ordering them for people as I didnt feel any previous versions were anything I could recommend using and most of the time we would sell them and customers would pick em up and then return them as they weren't happy with fit/look. The new Klim Deflect Muffs have changed all that and have my full endorsement - they are easy on/off, look good, roll up to store nicely, can see the controls through the plexi windows on them, keep your hands warm with lighter gloves on sub zero days, and even the price is right at $59.99 - they flat out check all the boxes on how a good muff should work.

    How are these around the brake lever? Using the doo ones now and they are real tight to the brake lever. Wondering if these have more room.

    Driving sled had no problems at all brake or throttle. To put on the parking brake u have to unzip guard . These seal off outside cold so good I can use mechanics gloves in -10f ambient temp & steam actually builds up on clear panel by the kill switch. They offset the cost off buying expensive gloves if you have a problem with cold hands.

    True.....I ended up using my cheapo Crappy tire muffs, and like them better...Doo ones are stiff and allow less motion when riding. I do miss the clear view though, of heaters. Id like to see these KLIM in person and see how they fit our bars. Left side on pre 19s, is wide with the cabling ect.
