Feels like you're wearing a t-shirt
Great fit, very lightweight, feels as if you aren't wearing a jacket at all, yet gives you confidence in knowing the D3o armor literally has got your back. I have been using Klim for snowmobiling since the very first Valdeez jacket rolled into dealers, this is my first Klim motorcycle jacket and I am as always very impressed with the quality and fit of the product.
Great jacket aside from Bad sizing
First let me just say that I like everything about this jacket! Really, it is an amazing riding jacket and its features are rich. My problem with it is simple.. It doesn't fit! I bought a size L 42-44 and XL 46-48 with a 44.5" chest. The large is too tight around the chest though the arms fit perfectly. The XL is way too large both in length of the sleeve and chest. The chest was so large it would actually bunch up on my under my chin when on the bike. Very disappointed in Klim for having such size differences. There really is no excuse for it. Again, loved the jacket in every way except the sizing. I've read others having this exact same issue.
Warranty service does not exist.

Bought this jacket October 2015 from Gateway BMW in St Louis. In June, during a ride the stitching on the side came undone. Took it back to Gateway the first of July. They shipped it back to Klim for warranty repair. It is now August 5th, over one month. Im leaving for a long moto trip in 4 days. I guess I need to buy another Jacket. Probably not a Klim. This is unacceptable.
The Best Summer Commuter/Dual Sport Jacket available
Size/Fit: I'm 6'1"/220 with 44-46 chest. XL fits well with room in the gut. <br> <br>Construction: Klim builds some complicated $*** I count 12 fabric panels on ONE ARM! That arm does fit me like a glove though. <br> <br>Protection: D30 CE level 1 at shoulder/elbow/back. The fit/look with armor in is very trim. The elbow/forearm pad is very well designed and locates perfectly. <br> <br>On Bike: Excellent ventilation without allowing wind-chill. The mesh is THICK with a hard twist in the knit so much of the air bounces off. Unzip the front the jacket balloons up because the rear mesh can’t exhaust it. Standing you get good flow but seated the jacket flows about ½ the air I expected. <br> <br>Summary: This jacket is hotter and heavier than expected, with more protection than I thought possible with D30 Level1. It works well for summer riding when high-speed protection is a priority. Just understand that you won’t get good airflow unless you are standing up on the pegs.
Buy it now. It's worth it.
Awesome jacket. As cool as you can get while wearing more than a t-shirt. Logged 6 days and ~5000 miles this past summer (2016) in 110+ degree heat. Let massive air flow in. Still incorporates armor which I appreciate bc when you do go down, it tends to hurt a lot less when you're wearing protection. <br> <br>I went medium (5'8", 175lbs, 42R sport coat, 32" waist) and it fits snug which is exactly what I wanted. I wear it always and when it's wet or colder throw my (L) badlands jacket over it (having taken the armor out of the band lands). Works great as an integrated unit. Threw a low profile down jacket under it (and the badlands) today and was comfy while riding in sub-40's all day. Much more versatile than as just a summer venting coat if you think outside the box. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.
