Better than TL
Great vest. I have a Troy Lee also. I like the Klim one better. It has enough adjusters in it to make it fit right so nothing is moving around. I have already done a Mexico trip with it. I like the fact that it came with the bladder also. Thanks
Try it you'll like it-it is awesome
I was initially apprehensive about going to this vest from my backpack...but after checking all the options this has and how it distributes the weight...it is a "10"! I was able to put all my radio gear in the front upper left pocket and set all the rest of my gear (and gun woohoo!) in the others with heaps of room to spare. I have done several cross country/single track enduro trips (400 miles plus) and it is way more comfortable than any pack. The only problem you might face is bringing too much gear😬. Very tough so far with branches and a "high speed get off". Stays cool in hot weather better than a pack (I like the buckles in front- instead of a zipper) and adjusts well to what gear you're wearing under. The only thing I wish it had was two zippers on each pocket instead of one, so you open just the top of the pocket (instead of opening the whole pouch) and not have other stuff in the pocket fall out. My friends tried it & want one too😜‼️
Klim Arsenal vest.

Fits great. Carries the weight perfectly. You hardly know you have it on. Light jacket under or over it. Best vest of this kind. Dual Sport, ADV, Road trips. Great vest.
Best vest out there.
I researched couple of vests before I pulled the trigger on this one. I dont know why I took so long to get this thing! I should've been riding with it years ago. Its super comfortable and is way better than carrying a backpack on your back as it distributes weight evenly around your torso versus having a backpack hammer your back all day. I love how it comes with its own bladder and plenty of pockets to cram stuff in. I do long trail rides that are 100 to 500 miles long, so comfort is a priority of mine. Get this, you wont be disappointed.
Very comfortable on long rides
I agree with other reviews! Comfortable and relatively cool in hot weather. Don't need to take off to have access to most items unlike a pack. Also - don't miss the belt of a conventional pack grinding into my hips. Performed beyond my expectations. Great job Klim!
