Emergency Beacon "SPOT" Pocket Advice
A word of caution: as a retired USAF Pararescuman and a Paramedic Firefighter, I've seen all kinds of trauma. Your emergency beacon should not be carried on your shoulder. If you injure your opposite arm, shoulder or ribs you can't get to it. This is why we military folks carry tourniquets near the middle of our chest. Also, the shoulder pocket is right below the shoulder pad and very exposed to impact. Please - carry it in one of the outer chest pockets instead.
A work of art.
by Chris Greta
Just got my Badlands today and was blown away. Got the new sage with high biz and it really is a work of art. The colors are really fantastic. I spent some time really going through every feature and I’m truly impressed. Every seam is perfect, every stitch exact. The features and materials are extraordinary. I put it on and went for a ride on a cold day and it felt great. It’s heavy to pick up but when you put it on the weight vanishes. I’m planning a two month ride through all sorts of weather and this will by my second skin and shelter for the whole journey so I wanted something I could live in through every kind of condition from burning deserts to rainy and cold mountain passes. I looked at every kind of jacket I could find, watched and read every review I could find and all roads lead back to the Badlands. I honestly think it’s the best motorcycle jacket in production anywhere.
No liner needed.
by Chris Greta
Rode this weekend and it was 40 degrees when I left and dipped down into the 30's several times along the ride. I had a tshirt and a light sweater under the Badlands jacket and I was pretty good. The front of my arms were chilled eventually and a bit on my chest. What I learned is that the jacket keeps out the cold, but the surface of the jacket will be very cold. The key is to wear something under the jacket that creates some space between you and the wind. I'm thinking I'll buy a packable down vest or jacket to keep in the panniers for cold snaps. My last jacket had a zip in liner and after having both (zip in liner as in most jackets and the Badlands without the liner), I think I have to agree with Klim. The liner, while warm, means you're packing another garment that can ONLY be worn with the outer jacket. I'm planning a two month ride and every garment counts.
You can stop looking for high quality protective rider jackets , they do not come any better than this period !
by Erik Grissom
First off I must thank the Klim team for producing such a well thought out rider protection jacket . Being a newer Dual Sport owner ( 2019 DR650 ) I saw so many options out there and I thought why compromise . I also wear some armor under the jacket for even more safety ie. Fox roost guard Fox Titan Pro Elbow pads And for the Badlands pants I wear the Klim padded stretch base layer full size and Fox Race knee/shin guards . It may seem overkill to some but this extra gear could help me walk away from something that might otherwise be a lot harder to recover from and there's enough room to use this gear with the built in armor so it doesn't feel that restrictive at all . Great build quality comfortable and confidence inspiring knowing that you are wearing the best there is ! Once again thanks for making all the high quality products that you do . Loyal customer for life !
Excellent all around jacket
by Brian Wester
I live in CA and have year round riding. This jacket is easily a 4 season jacket. It is a jacket that you can stay warm in and opening the vents allows a lot of air to pass through. The D3O armor is well ventilated and though you feel it against your body, a lot of air is able to flow through preventing the sticky feeling of traditional armor and allowing the jacket to exhaust body heat very efficiently. Even with the coverage of a windshield on a BMW GSA, the jacket vents exceptionally well. I am 5-10, 165 and a medium fits excellent.
You can't have everything but you can have everything that matters
The Badlands Pro is a replacement for my first Badlands jacket. The first one was destroyed in a crash, I walked away completely uninjured so the jacket does what it says on the packet!
<br>Today I did my first proper ride wearing the jacket. 5 hours of torrential rain and sleet through the middle of Tasmania in 0c temperatures (that's 32F). Its winter down under. I remained warm and completely dry, I mean completely. I cannot recommend this jacket highly enough.
<br>The badlands is ugly, boxy and expensive. You can't have everything but you can have everything that matters. Go on treat yourself!

I own the Badlands Pro and a Hot weather set up. The Badlands is the most versatile, well built Riding Gear I have ever owned. Just make one with a Honda Africa Twin logo next time!
The one jacket to rule them all...
by Jeff G.
I purchased my Badlands jacket in 2012. I know they have evolved and been refined greatly over the years. I cannot say enough about this jacket. It has been with me from the streets of San Francisco to the Mongolian steppe. I have worn it in temperatures ranging from 9 degrees F to 109 degrees F. My Badlands jacket was an investment I made for both me and my family, not only for the top level of protection it offers, but to finally have that one jacket that I can take anywhere and be comfortable. I have not been disappointed.
<br>I also cannot say enough about the customer service I have received from Klim. Years ago, I had a zipper on my Badlands pants go. I reached out to Klim and they took great care of me and my garment. Great turn around time and customer service.
Sizing could be better
by James A
There is no denying the quality and features of this jacket. It's absolutely worth the price tag. However, the sizing could be a lot better. The small fits me perfectly as far as jackets go. However, the bottom of the jacket is too tight to fit over the Badlands pants. The medium fits over the pants, but the arms are too long. The only way I was able to get the combination to work was to remove the hip pads from the pants. It's unfortunate that I have to compromise on products that cost $1,800.
Yes, its expensive, but you get what you pay for.
I purchased the Badlands jacket and Pants in 2012, shortly after I purchased my first motorcycle. I don't ride the bike without it, and still use it now. I don't ride super high miles, but I ride most of the year, rain or shine, but leave it parked in the snow usually. I've spent multiple hours on the bike in the rain in this gear and not gotten wet. The ventilation is decent enough that as long as you're moving, you can wear it in the warm, humid, mid-west summers... I did have 1 issue with the first set of badlands pants that I had. A little seepage came through one of seams. Contacted Klim and they replaced the pants after taking them back to verify the issue. That was in the first or second year that I had it, solid ever since and it doesn't look like its nearly a decade old.

With living in the UK, we have our fair share of rubbish weather which matches the country really......
<br>I ride all year round, commuting to and from work. My wife bought me the Badlands Pro Jacket, Trousers and both summer and winter gloves after spending years buying what I thought was good kit, only to quickly realise that in comparrison to the Badlands Pro it was complete rubbish. Sizing is spot on, plenty of pockets easy wipe clean and comfortable. It really is the swiss army knife of motorbike clothing, you can wear all year round with no problem, but I would suggest that a t-shirt is ok most of the time but a thin jumper aswell for the cooler days to wear under the jacket as it can get a little chilly if you ride for a while in freezing.conditions. I would not buy anything else now.
