They did it again!

OK jacket seekers, I did extensive research in 2019; talk to mates about the Carlsbad jacket, tried some on, watched reviews and got personal recommendations from riders I trust. I ride hard, I mean hard, for a heavily modded DR650 but I take this bike on long offroad trisp and day ride technical single track from the arctic circle to the tip of Baja, one day further. I also ride a 250 tree machine and I wanted a jacket I could use for both in weather from Baja to around my home on the wet coast. I hit a character restriction of 1000 so check here for the full review https://m.facebook.com/story.phpstory_fbid=862054300913220&id=158581927927131

They did do it again! Superb revisions.

I tried to review just now and hit a character restriction so check out my personal blog, it's for my memory not monetized so its unbiased.

Its Osame and looking killing

I’m not typically a review guy but this one is well deserved!

This is my first purchase from Klim and let me just say it won’t be my last. I’ve got about 400 miles in so far with my Carlsbad jacket and it has performed flawlessly. As a big guy 6’4” 250ish most sleeves are too short as well as the back of the jacket but not with this one. It fits great and is comfortable to wear all day. I haven’t tested the integrated body armor yet (thank goodness) but I will say you don’t even notice it when you’re riding which was one of my concerns. This jacket has kept me warm in the mornings here in Montana and the well placed vents have been great in the afternoon. I know when you write a review you’re supposed to find some faults but I’m coming up blank on this jacket.

Nicely done Klim

Fantastic jacket, comfortable, good protection, so many pockets, great venting and waterproofing with Gore Tex!
<br>Plus I can highlight safety for Motorcyclists in all materials and protection in my first aid courses.
<br>Real quality and care put into the jacket.

Greg here again from a couple of reviews before

Well..... I found a patch of spring snow today and had the unique opportunity to test out the Carlsbad jacket and matching pants, Krios helmet and Baja gloves in a full on snow/pavement lay down of my new KTM 1290 SAR. The bike, and more importantly myself are doing just fine. The gear took the brunt of the slide and the body armor did exactly what it was designed to do. With the exception of a few tears in the jacket both them and the pants saved my a$$! Now don't get me wrong it hurts to laugh, cry, fart etc. but that's it. Again, I'm not the type of guy who takes the time to leave reviews but this gear is legit! Big shout out to Klim for the gear and KTM for the well placed engine guard.

Super Jacket for all seasons

First time Klim jacket purchase.....replacing my 25 yr old first gear Kilimanjaro....that jacket was great but I want something new...This jacket is almost perfect...I need large because medium is too small....my only issue is that the sleeves are too long....but I can tuck under and use three pieces of velcro to keep in place....excellent ventilation....took ride starting at 59F and ended up with 90F....had to take off long sleeve shirt.....opening up collar is a great feature....was cool as a cucumber.....still have room for heated jacket....am considering their matching pants ($499).....
<br>
<br>Overall I give 4.5 stars....Wish there was a way to shorten sleeve length......but who knows, with winter gloves maybe sleeves are long enough to go over gloves or they can go inside sleeve....
