Well thought through piece of equipment. The high quality of materials makes it a bit rough to wear the first few times but you get used to it rapidly. Really good reflection and sturdy zippers.
True it is not cheap, but I can't see myself wearing through this jacket in the next ten years or so. I also bought the matching pants.
I ride about 30.000 km's per year, both off-road as on-road and this is by far the best suit I ever owned.

Is it worth it? Yes.
The most important question -- the only question -- about this jacket: is it worth the eye-watering price? What do you get over a jacket costing half the price (BMW Rallye) or a third (almost any of them)?
For me, the answer has been a definite yes. This jacket has kept me safe, dry, and warm (or cool) in conditions all over the map. I went on a ~200-mile ride a few days ago in subzero temperatures and the jacket (and pants) performed excellently.
The jacket is packed full of features that truly showcase how much engineering went into it. The pockets, for example: many jackets feature a profusion of pockets, but the Klim Adventure Rally jacket keeps them useful. Unlike my previous jacket (an Aerostich Darien) I never found myself losing items in the pockets.
The hydration bladder (included!) is a 3L and works quite well. At first I was skeptical of the design, having used Camelbak products exclusively. The genius of this design is it allows much easier filling *and* cleaning -- you can turn the pouch inside out and wash it that way. I ended up replacing it with a Geigerrig Hydration Engine (basically the same, but pressurizeable), which fits perfectly.
The jacket is VERY stiff at first -- so much so that it left a bruise near my right elbow. After some break-in time, though, it's become more and more comfortable.
When you first pick it up, you'll be surprised how much it weighs. Put it on and cinch up the chest straps, though, and the weight practically disappears. I can ride all day and not feel the burden, which is simply great.
Criticisms: the Velcro adjustment straps, especially on the arms, don't have enough range to be truly useful. I'll probably end up adding on extra Velcro there. I also wish the armor had more Velcro adjustment range.
Other than that, though, this jacket makes me feel comfortable and protected -- and its head-turning looks don't hurt. The internal armor is a great bonus over the Badlands. Even given the staggering price, I'm sold.

Chris W:I've never tried a Badlands jacket but what I've noticed is that it seems the cut or amount of space for the shoulders/arm pits are a bit lacking, the jacket feels like it rides up into my arm pits even after I exchanged for a larger size. Opening up the suspenders "loosen up" the fit a little but it still is a little tight in the pits.Mar 16, 2014
A shopper asked:Is there enough of a step up in features to justify the AR vs the Badlands. I currently have an Olympia which uses the three layer system and I have decided I don't like having the waterproof layer under the outer shell. Getting dressed on the side of the road for a summer tstorm then having to undress afterwards gets old. The armor also feels second rate and the knee armor is never where it is needed. So I do want to change to the Klim system but which one? Aside form the hydration bladder which I would rarely use, and the pockets ( I would rather carry tools etc in a tankbag)is the armor in the AR that much better than the Badlands? how does the vent situation compare? I feel I lose too much water through sweat and transpiration for Goretex to work much for me (cannot wear Goretex boots as they turn into swimming pools - gross, I know) so for me it is all about the vents.May 12, 2014
Chris W:All that I can say is that I'm super stoked on KLIM gear, it's simple-one system, no layers and it works-really well and takes a beating. I've stayed dry in every kind of rain and wet conditions you can imagine. As far as the armor, i believe it is the next gen. of the D30 armor but I'm not familiar with what the Badland has. I find the water bladder very useful and eliminates the need to stop the bike or dig into gear to find your hydration source. Ventilation is adequate and you may find the vents more effective since it vents directly to your skin rather than between layering systems in other jackets. I retired a RevIt Textile jacket for KLIM for the same reason you stated in your question.May 13, 2014
Darren P:Go for the Badlands, the AR is a bit overkill I think and if the next brace, hyd bladder and tools are out of the picture then the extra $$$ just for jacket is not going to be worth it. Can't say much about the vents at speed but there is lots of them sadly I haven't put any miles on my bike with this gear yet due to snow covered roads and a vacation, hope that helps a bit thoughMay 12, 2014
