Versatile enough to span multiple riding styles and bike preferences, the Latitude proves to be the go-to jacket for sport, adventure and cruiser touring.
Thanks to its more relaxed, comfortable fit, durable and weatherproof GORE-TEX® fabrics, robust integrated armor system and intelligent cargo capacity, the Latitude Jacket is a total rider support system.

It made me feel SAFE.
I have been using the Latitude for 4 months now, and did roughly 4000kms wearing it through extreme hot, extreme cold, rain, snow (!!) and even a 40 minutes hail-storm (wasn't fun).
<br>What can I say? This jacket always had my back. Not a single drop of water or whiff of air ever came through it.
<br>I absolutely LOVE it. It's the first KLIM piece I use, but those guys definitely earned a life-long customer.
Love my Latitude jacket and pants.
I have been looking at Klim for some time and finally decided to spend the money. The Latitude jacket and pants fit perfectly. The first day out I rode 450 miles, temp 55 F to 80F. When moving venting left me comfortable. I have had Gortex before so I am not concerned with wet weather.
<br>The quality of these two pieces is excellent. I am truly glad I finally popped for Klim quality.
Not too happy with it.
After 8500 kms with my new Latitude jacket my experience is.
<br>- It fits good, comfortable to wear.
<br>-Watertight. But water comes in around the neck so you get wet on neck/shoulders/chest when riding in rain for a little longer period.
<br>-The main front zip and flap is not windproof enough, creating a draft even when all vents are closed. When riding in temperatures under 12 degrees Celsius the jacket is cold, even with 2 layers of thin wool and 2 sweatshirts underneath!
<br>-Very good in warm weather riding, with all the vent possibilities.
What a great jacket
by Steve C
What a great jacket, I feel very well protected from both the weather and in the case of an 'off', this is a very well made jacket and I am delighted with my purchase.
<br>Bring on the miles!
Does not need a tall or lone size
by Desmond Stack
For years i have been buying different styles of Klim pants in the tall or long sizes, I have 6 now covering every type of riding in all kinds of weather, i have 2 pairs of latitude pants since the ones I wear off road would look filthy on the street, I have always wanted to pair some with a Klim jacket but they do not not come in talls, I am 6'6" with long arms and always need tall. But a friend told me i would not need it, So I took a chance and he was right, Now I have the same rugged protection in the jacket as I have had in the pants.
Good quality jacket
I purchased this jacket back in August as a replacement for an older 3-season jacket that started to de-laminate (non-GoreTex) after 15 years. After a few months of use, I can say that this jacket is a quality product, well made, with pretty good attention to detail. I'm personally pretty happy with the fit and finish, and it has kept me mostly dry during our wet weather here in the northwest. As the jacket is uninsulated, I do need to wear it with a fleece underneath during cooler weather. The main area of complaint for me on this jacket is that the wrist cuffs should be gusseted with a zipper as all of my other jackets are. Currently, all of the adjustment is with a hook and loop strap which causes the fabric around the wrist to bunch up. Because of this, I get a lot of air, and eventually water, going down into my gloves. I like this jacket and I'm glad I purchased it, but I would really love it if the cuffs were re-designed. It would then become the first one I grab.
Stay Dry even at highway speeds
I've worn a Klim Latitude suit for 3 or 4 years. This past fall I took out the D30, turned the coat and pants inside out, zipped up and locked down all Velcro fasteners and washed in a top loading washing machine with very little soap. When they came out I turned them right side out and sprayed them with ReviveX then tumble dried in a dryer on medium heat. This brought them back so the rain doesn't even wet the outside of the fabric. Even before they were re-treated, they were keeping me dry. The outside fabric would get damp - wet, but no water made it inside. The last time I rode in the rain before the retreat, I was at speeds between 60 and 85 in so much rain we were throwing 30 foot high roster tails off the rear tire. In fact the most I have ever got on me is a single drop of rain somehow made it past my old Arai RX-Q and it hit me in the Adams apple. That rain storm had all traffic down to 40 - 45, it was a downpour.
5 Star Quality.....3 Star Fit
by Ryan W.
I love the quality and features of this jacket, and the am disappointed the sleeve length prevents me from keeping it.
<br>I'm 6'0" 205# size 48 jacket 15.5/37" shirt and 34/34 Jeans. (Big chest, long arms, thin waist)
<br>I tried both the L & XL sizes. The L was comfortable without much layering and would be nice in the summertime, but didn't give me quite enough room to add the layers I'd need for winter. On the other hand, the XL was really large, even with 3 layers and an electric jacket liner, I had to cinch the side belts fully tight. In the summertime, I'd be swimming in the XL. The jacket is easily long enough through the body.
<br>The problem I have with this jacket is the sleeve length. Standing at rest, the sleeves are 2" from my wrists. If I reach for the bars, the sleeves are about 3" from my wrists and all the slack in the back of the jacket is stretched tight. The jacket would be awesome in a Tall size with longer arms.
<br>DEAR KLIM: PLEASE MAKE A TALL SIZE COAT.
Bought the latitude jacket over a year ago as my first klim product very impressed it's been through hell and holding up great been in Florida hurricanes and Wisconsin snow 90 deg to 23 deg "paired with 1.0 base layer and heated vest" never been uncomfortable
Saved my bacon
by Boise Chris
I love this jacket. I bought it for the Idaho BDR along with some KLIM pants. This jacket was amazingly comfortable, and I even slept in it one night. Temperatures varied from cold as shit to hot as hell. I had one nasty spill off road and my gear protected me well. I would recommend to anyone.
Truly a modern motorcycle jacket
Well, I feel like I have arrived at the future of motorcycle clothing. Wore leather for years and liked the style and (relative)protection (80's/90's). Then got a textile jacket with some (cheesy) armor, and really liked that(2000's/2010's). Now I have this latitude jacket and I have arrived at the next step in my motorcycle apparel journey. The fabric felt a little stiff at first, but has broken in nicely. The fit for me is fine (5'8"/195 lb.s/ middle age man gut...). For the range of temps I normally ride my motorcycle in (low 50's to high 80's/low 90's) this jacket is good to go- add a layer for cold ( got a Klim “Inferno” jacket), open the vents when its warm. So what do I want from my motorcycle jacket and how does the Latitude stack up? Style, check. Protection in a crash, check. Comfort, check. Protection from the elements (it is super waterproof!), check. Plus, I just feel like a million bucks knowing how cool I look in it and that it is every bit as functional...Good Stuff!
Latitude jacket need change
by Marcos Overlang
I always wore Spidi's clothes. I recently went to Alaska on a motorcycle and decided to try the Latitude jacket and a gore-tex pants.
<br>I found the jacket very rude to the touch, especially in the region of the neck where the seams are exposed and they rub against the skin, which is very uncomfortable, which forces me to put a flannel in the region of the neck. Please review this question.
