As of January 2016 all new Klassen vests come with our new Plated Ratchet, which our tests have shown has a stronger spring than the original style.
The plated ratchet requires a one time mounting plate installed on your vest. If you're an existing Klassen vest owner you can use the new plated ratchets and we will include the mounting plates on your first order at no additional charge. We strongly recommend you replace all your ratchets at the same time to avoid alignment issues with the switch.
* all prices are in US dollars
** If your existing ratchets do not look like the ratchets in the picture, please contact Jennifer at the shop to place your order firstname.lastname@example.org
