The best jacket I have owned
I have always wore motorfist clothing while riding snowmachines until this year I decided to try something new. I could never keep myself dry wearing other coats until I got the vector parka. The vents make it easy to contol the heat inside your jacket, and the goretex keeps your body dry. No matter how the weather is you will stay dry. Awesome jacket!
First off, this is made for snow, but I got it for year round commuting on my motorcycle. No armor(except for small amount of chest roost protection), and I don't believe there is room to add any (expected, as it is not made/intended for motorcycle use, I use standalone under it.) Very warm and a very comfortable jacket, even with just a shirt on underneath on ~40 degree days. Quality is top notch, as expected. The neck is a bit long for me and gets bunched up, but not a huge issue (not uncomfortable by any means, and if you aren't wearing a full face helmet you should be fine.) The only thing I would want added to it would be a clasp to hook into pants.
Another A+ for Klim, products like this are why I keep buying more!
