I've been wearing this jacket for most of the summer now and I'm very happy with it. I've worn other mesh jackets from other companies and while they kept me cool, I always had this nagging thought in the back of my head about how much protection they actually provided. Lets be honest, not much. If you do hit the pavement, you just know that mesh is going to shred to pieces within 10 feet of sliding. But not with this thing! This jacket is built like a TANK! The Carbon Kevlar mesh is thick, yet super breathable and flexible - not as stiff as I thought it would be. The D30 armor is in all the right places and I don't feel like my elbows or shoulders would slip out of place in a crash. It's heavy, but the harness system distributes the weight well, even while carrying a full hydration pouch in the back.
Sizing: I fell in-between a Medium and a Large based on the Klim size Chart. I'm 5'8", 185, 42" chest, athletic build. I ordered both and while the Large fit in the chest, it didn't fit anywhere else....it was just too long in the sleeves and overall length. Forget about getting it altered either....very few places can sew/alter the Carbon Kevlar material, not even Klim USA. The Medium fit perfect in the sleeve length and jacket length, but it was a little tight in the chest and felt like it was digging into my armpits a bit. I decided to keep the Medium and I'm really glad I did....the large would have just been too sloppy. The good news is that the material allows for a little bit of break-in and stretch after wearing, unlike the Goretex counterparts. It no longer feels overly tight in the chest and no issues with digging in around the armpits. It feels perfect now and I can comfortable get a baselayer or heated liner under it for the fall/winter.
Couple this jacket with the Gore-tex shell or another waterproof shell of your choosing and you'll have a 4-season do-it-all jacket:
Heated liner+Jacket+Shell = Fall/Winter.
Base Layer+Jacket= Late Summer/Early Fall. Jacket+Shell=Rain/Chilly Mornings.
Jacket alone= Hot summer days.
My only complaint is that the jacket was late arriving to market due to production delays, which may have attributed to the jacket's high cost. It's an amazing jacket, but at the current market price, I don't foresee it being a big seller unless Klim can lower the MAP pricing.

I live out in CA and wanted a suit that will be cool in summer and that i could layer if it gets cold. This is it! The construction is rock solid, you feel like Ironman in this thing...
Sizing was difficult, I am 205lb, 6' tall 44" chest... the L was too tight, the XL is better but big around the waist, so i have to compromise a little. It feels too much but once you are riding it is very comfortable and cool. No restrictions in movement.
The pant was the same, tried a 34, too small (I am a jean size 34x32) Went with a 36 and that is very comfortable (suspenders work well)
Overall it's a great suit.
4 star because the sizing is not perfect for the average guy. A waist strap would have been nice to have.
