Klim Badlands Pro Jacket 4.8 5 83 83
The best a man can get! Bought this jacket after researching a lot about it and wore it on my trip from Connecticut to Miami this spring 2014 for a 3000 mile round trip. The weather changed from 55F in CT to 90F in FL. The air flow in the jacket is great and minimizes sweat formation in hot conditions and also keeps you warm with a good base layer in lower temps. Encountered some heavy rain in the Carolina's and it kept me dry. The jacket is heavy when you hold it with one hand but once you put it on, it seems like your wearing a T-shirt. Worth the money!!! July 25, 2014
Awesome jacket When I first tried it on, it was very stiff and felt constricting. After a few days of long use, the jacket really softens up and is much more comfortable. Waterproof and warm, this jacket stood up to 5 days of hard use in AK, where we saw rain as well as sun. Rode in temps in the 50s and was very comfortable with only a t-shirt underneath. Also saw direct sun and temps in the 80s, and with the vents open it was easy to stay cool. The fit is snug, and doesn't leave a lot of room for layering, especially in the arms. July 14, 2014
Great Protection! I have been out several times in the rain in this gear and stayed totally dry. The venting is great as well as overall comfort. Don't bother getting the hydration pack for this jacket, it was very uncomfortable when full. June 26, 2014
This jacket doesn't need my input.... This is hands down, the best, most feature rich, jacket I've ever met. You can absolutely tell that this is a jacket by riders for riders. All of its features just make sense. The pockets are positioned in logical places. The vents work well without compromising fit or protection. There are plenty of glowing review for this jacket. When I started searching for a 4 season adventure jacket, this thing popping up as a ZLA winner made me scoff because of the price. After researching and narrowing down the options, this thing kept popping back into the short list. I held my breath and ordered it and couldn't be happier. I commute every day there isn't enough ice to kill me. Gore-Tex Pro, while expensive, is absolutely the way to go. There is nothing worse than an inner liner type of jacket getting wet, and still being damp the next day. This solves that problem handily. I'm 6'1", 190, wear a 44" jacket, 17" neck with 34-35 inch shirt. The large fits me flawlessly with enough room underneath for an undershirt, dress shirt, sweater, and winter coat. The kidney belt and arm adjustments allow you to wear it with a t-shirt or the above and have it still look fitted. It is also perfectly comfortable in 90+ degrees with 80%+ humidity. This jacket really does do it all. If you're shopping in the 500-600 dollar range.... save yourself the trouble and just buy this thing. SERIOUSLY! June 13, 2014
It works but is it worth the money? I received my Klim Badlands Pro Hi Vis Jacket and Klim Badlands Pro Pants on 7th July 2014 and have already experienced frosts at temperatures down to -3C (26.6F) and have experienced several torrential downpours. Its mid-winter here. I purchased this gear so that I could use it all year around and in all conditions. My commute is over 100Km (63 Miles) round trip and I put on about 30,000Km per year (18,640 Miles) so I needed gear that would hold up and do the job. That’s the promise of Klim… Am I happy with this gear and was it worth the cash? Let’s start with the cost. Jacket & Pants $1,549.98 USD, Shipping $70.67 USD, Total $1,620.65 USD, Then came the exchange rate which bumped the cost up to $1,838.85 NZ, plus GST and duty, grand total of $2,114.68 NZ . You are paying for the excellent quality and the name. Am I happy with it? Let’s just say that I like it but it is a lot of money. The Klim Badlands Pro Hi Vis Jacket (Size LG) looks cool. (A photo with my measurements has been supplied with this review). I can put two layers of clothing on in the form of thermals and a Macpac Pulsar PrimaLoft® ONE Jacket; this makes the fit snug on me. After reading all of the reviews I thought that it would be bigger on me, this is not the case. ( Thanks to “Rafael Nieves” from RevZilla Customer Service for pointing me in the right direction in regards to sizing). The big question is, does it keep me warm and dry? The answer is yes to dry and a big no to warm. The Gore-tex® 3-layer pro shell transmits the cold and you do feel it, even the cold rain, hence the Macpac jacket. Again after reading the reviews I would have thought that it would have been warmer. Some people have made comments on the kidney belt and thumb holes. I find that with two layers on that I do not use the kidney belt but I can see me using it in the summer when I have less clothing on underneath, it does not get in the way and I do not notice it at all. I find the thumb holes good. They help me in getting the jacket to sit right and to stop the rain water from running down into my gloves. In conclusion, would I recommend them? When I look at the price that I paid then it’s hard to say yes. I think that you could buy gear that performs the same without the large cost. The question is will the Klim gear last the distance that would justify the additional cost? Only time will tell. July 15, 2014
great jacket I've had my badlands for going on two years and almost 18k miles of riding, I've crashed in it, I wear it nearly everyday as well. The only thing I find is hard to deal with is how hot this jacket gets in Louisiana heat during summer. What sold me on this jacket is the incorporated hydration pocket which is great for me because I do not like wearing backpacks. This jacket is also extremely waterproof, although I do not suggest leaving your phone in your outside chest pocket when riding through 3 hours of rain, don't ask how I know this. :) May 25, 2014
Very well thought out jacket Well at first after putting it on about ten times, I had concerns that it was grabbing me under the arms to tight. So I decided to run it to see if it went away, and it did. Perfect fit. It is a very well thought out, good venting, great armor, water proof, warm, killer looking jacket! May 19, 2014
Mixed review Just rode a portion of the TAT wearing this jacket and pants combo. The jacket is very heavy and very warm. Same with the pants. The quality and attention to detail is very high, but it's all a bit of overkill. I think I would have been just as protected and certainly more comfortable wearing my lighter Rev'it gear. When I purchased the suit I thought not having to use waterproof liners would be an advantage. Well, on my way through Arkansas we hit a biblical rainstorm and I got soaked. I don't mean from a little rain running off my helmet and down my back. So, what's the point. But baby did I look cool! May 19, 2014

Fernando B: I need new outfit to ride with my friends in the Northwestern Argentina and Atacama dessert next November. Extra protection is always welcome as well high tech materials. I have a Revit Sand jacket, which is great, but protections aren't good enough, also is not water proof at all and with the Klim jacket, I can leave my rain suit at home, since this is fully waterproof.

H.S. R: Because everyone who owns one swears it's the best. Jul 6, 2014

Anthony R: Very good ventilation, very inportant in the desert here in Australia, good quality, seen friends use it seems very tough so far. Apr 22, 2014
Robert P: I owned a BMW mens blue Rallye 2 jacket for several years, it was okay. After a little research, and comparing it to my previously owned Rallye 2 jacket, I discovered the Klim Badlands was the versatile jacket I was looking for. This awesome jacket fit my riding style (mostly commuting), as it has more reflection, water proof on the exterior, stylish and fit like a glove. This was a good purchase, and I have received various compliments on this purchase from other riders! :) Apr 9, 2014
Robert D: Great fit. Lots of venting options if needed. Warm due to Gore-Tex when cold. Well worth the money! Apr 7, 2014
Scott F: Based on reviews and I really wanted rain proofing without liners. It is heavy, but with the kidney belt, I don't notice the weight once I am wearing it. It is quite comfy. Seals well against wind and rain. All the vent zippers are HARD to operate if you are wearing the jacket, especially if it is dusty. I've used it in 105 F down to the upper 30's and like it. I do use a liner though when it gets cold. LOTS of pockets. This is really like, the pants... not as much. Mar 27, 2014
B R: Protection, all season/weather, comfort. Mar 6, 2014
Matthew B: Best touring suit for the money (period). Feb 11, 2014
Mark T: I will tell you after a few weeks Feb 3, 2014
John P: I wanted a dedicated riding jacket with competition/expedition grade features. I got all of this and more in spades. Very well designed, engineered, built, and finished. I was a bit worried because they are made in China, but apparently, Klim found someone in China who can sew with high quality (Hong Kong tailors?). The jacket has plenty of room inside for layers or a heated liner. I got a size large which is my normal size in a street jacket. Jan 26, 2014
Rob R: Gore-Tex, D3O Armor, what's not to like? Dec 24, 2013

A shopper asked: I'm in between a Large and Xlarge.......I have a 45 chest, I'm 6'0", 205lbs. I heard the arm length is pretty long. Which jacket is best for me? I don't need this thing snug and I don't want to swim in it either.

Thanks again Revzilla!!

Jimbo221: I'm 6'2" 240 lbs, 49" chest and I went with the 2X. It's plenty big with good room for layering with a compression base layer and a heavy fleece mid layer or a heated liner. I wear a 37" sleeve and these are good for 38"+. Feb 4, 2013

Robert D: I purchased the Large. I am 6'2" and 215lbs. I wear a 44 Long sport coat. Given your dimensions I would try the Large first. I have enough room for a Patagonia fleece under my Large Badlands. Hope this is of some help. Oct 22, 2012

A shopper asked: Assuming I need to ride in following weather condition : Above 75 F (up to 86)/ Humid

Do you think this jacket will provide supple comfort? How about the comfor weather zone for this jacket?

For instance, Rukka Armas is not suitable for hot weather like above 75F and humid.

So, I am now questioning that whether Rev'it Defender or Klim Badland would be more suitable for my case.

How do you think about ventilation? I know both defender and badland are great jacket but think

each jacket has slightly different comfort weather zone. My guess is defender is better because this doe not

have GTX Outshell but want to get more advice from experts.

Robert D: I am no "expert" however I do own the Badlands jacket and pants. I live in SE Pennsylvania. I have lived in Florida and that is where I spent most of my riding life. Here is my bottom line when it comes to riding jackets. Unless you go with a "Textile" jacket for summer use and a different jacket for winter riding you cannot go wrong with the Badlands. Yes, the material is stout. Yes, it is a serious jacket however, the venting on this jacket is simply spectacular. WIth the vents on this jacket as long as you are moving my experience is you will feel the air temp as you are riding. If it is 90 degrees and 90% humidity that is what you will feel...... My opinion is the only other more comfortable way to ride would be in t-shirt or with a summer specific textile jacket... I believe the comfort would be more related to a more relaxed feel not so much a cooler ride....

The Badlands is bomber. I expect it to last a long time. The GTX material is proven. Gore knows their products and produces excellent materials. I own gore-tex products for other outdoor pursuits and I think it is good. When other manufacturers claim it to be as good as gore-tex that maybe but I grew up with Gore products and have full confidence in their quality. Watch the boot reviews which have the Gore membrane. The review on the Badlands speaks directly to the Gore fabric.

I typically wore a Dainese leather jacket in Florida, year around, even when just running an errand. Once moved to SE Pennsylvania I picked up a GS, I began looking into more suitable gear for all weather riding and I settled on the Badlands. I would not change my decision if I am buying with my money. I have only owned the Badlands so I cannot offer comparisons to other than my Dainese jacket that is part of a two piece set of leathers.

Patrick S asked: Does this jacket have any way of keeping the collar open or does the velcro just flap around and stick to whatever (like the under part of your helmet liner)? Apr 10, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ralph B: I feel your pain, Patrick ;)

I gave up on those velcro tabs, after they did what you described (or rather didn't, as was advertised). I just leave them velcroed down to look really neat and professional, since they are pretty much useless to hold down the collar. The only thing that helps with holding down the collar is wear and use, since the collar does soften with age and will stay down as often as not; only problem, it does tend to slap the helmet when the wind gets hold of it. After a while, you hardly notice the slapping: it's just another beat of the music of the road.

All in all, I wouldn't trade this jacket for any other out there, though, because it is the best I've ever owned and the velcro tabs are just something to endure.

Hope this eases the pain.

Francis H: I've not had a bad experience in the one year plus time I've been using the jacket. That includes more than 3,000 miles of mix conditions from 105 degrees to below freezing. Rain riding in the Pacific Northwest and the high deserts of southern Oregon. I've not had a problem with the collar. Apr 15, 2014

David A: Yes it does. There are tabs that hold the collar open if you want. You can see them by the points of the silver reflective material near the collar. The collar has loop Velcro inside that can be held down by those tabs. No flappy Velcro in the summer! Apr 10, 2014
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kirk B: Yes it does. If you look carefully at the shoulders you will see two tabs. One on each shoulder. These tabs will un Velcro from one end and then Velcro to the collar and keep it open. It's not the best system but it does work. Apr 11, 2014

Justin F asked: Thinking about getting this jacket. Question : do you have to use the thumb hooks on the inner sleeve or can you just out your arms thru it without using the hooks? Also... I am not a tall man ('5'7").... I know this is a 3/4 length coat.. I am concerned it will be too long for me from front of neck to crotch? Jan 16, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael R: Justin, I put my hands through the jacket without using the thumb hooks on the inner sleeve often, depending on what gloves I'm using that day and how cold it is. No problem with that.
I am 6'1", so this may not help your question about the length through the front, but the sizing indicated works well for me and I've never had a problem with the front being too long, in riding positions that vary between a Harley, a BMW GS & 1600GT, and a Ducati Monster.

ward w: You do not have to use thumb hooks just put arm thru and push thunb hooks back inti sleeve. I do use the hooks with one pair of gloves for winter riding and like them to keep cold out. The lenght of the jacket sould not be a problem as the bottom zipper can just be pulled up to split and give you the needed length. Hope this helps You. I think it is a great jacket. Jan 17, 2014

Daniel T: You do not have to use the thumb holes in the sleeves - in fact, I rarely do. The zipper does zip up, opening the bottom of the jacket so it doesn't ride up in front - it is a very stiff jacket, especially with the chest protector option. Your best option would be to find a shop that carries the jacket and try it on while sitting on your bike. Jan 17, 2014
Reply to Daniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kirk B: You can put your hands through without using the thumb hooks. I only use them when it is less than 32° outside, It does help keep your arms warm in that case.

You can zip the zipper up from the bottom a bit for added comfort if it is too long but I did not find it necessary but I am a bit taller (and bigger around) than you.

Todd R: I usually don't use thumb hooks- just slide sleeve up into jacket sleeves
I am 6 ft and don't really think of this jacket as a 3/4 jacket- think you'll be good
It's a great jacket - fall thru spring especially . It can get warm on serious summer heat but does vent
Great protection

Jeffrey S: Thumb sleeve - no, you do not need to use it. I never use them.

Length - tough to say since everyone has different torso. I unzip a few inches from the bottom (2" +\-) while I'm riding (upright position on multistrada) and it's perfect.

Jacket is amazing.

A shopper asked: Hello,

I am interested in following 2 aspects of Badlands Pro jacket:

1. Does it flap in the wind at highway speeds (80 - 95 mph / 120-150 kmh)?
2. Do you feel cold drafts getting under the jacket and cooling lumbar area?

I have tried size L and it fits well, however upper part of the jacket, above integrated kidney belt feels a bit baggy (even on top of base+mid layer + thin Primaloft jacket; M is too short in thorso and sleeves). That is the reason for my first concern.

Currently I ride in excellent Held Carese, which is well tailored (slim bodyhugging fit), very well done jacket. There is no flapping at all due to stiff material and tailoring. However I do feel cold drafts cooling the lumbar area (hem cord cinched, waist cinched, wearing kidney belt).

Looking to upgrade to Badlands Pro because where I live (central Germany) rains 3 times per day. I am looking for 3 layer Gore Tex touring jacket suitable for all seasons, cca 70% highway on usual days, but which can be good also for white roads ride in warmer parts of the world.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Marcio R: Hello! Excuse me for my bad english, but I'll try:
1- No, it doesn't flap in the wind. I have a BMW R1200GS, and had already 125 mph using the jacket. I bought XL size, and it was a little big for me, in the arms, but when I'm riding it is good.
2- I never use it in the cool weather (I live in the mid west from Brazil, and here is not cold... In the winter (july), some days we have 65 degrees... Bur justo for 3 days). So, I didn't felt cold drafts under the jacket until now.
I feel the same (a bit baggy), in the upper part of the jacket, when is very hot and I open the air ventilations.
Try the Spidi jacket Hard Track H2Oout, or Marathon. Some friends told me it's very good!
Good luck!

Charles S: The Badlands Pro Jacket does not flap in the wind at highway speeds.

The jacket is well ventilated in the summer when the vents are open. The Gortex fabric breathes so you can always feel a small amount of air moving around.

In colder weather the inside kidney belt keeps the jacket in place around your mid section keeping most of the air from entering under the jacket. In very cold weather you will need a mid layer windproof lining to keep you warm.

Having lived in Germany for two years this would be a perfect jacket for your weather and climate.

Marc V: I absolutely love my Badlands Pro Jacket and pants. It is quite weather tight. All zippers are seam sealed. All flaps are sturdy with no flapping in high winds. even from side winds.

The only time I have ever had draft issues is when I personally forget to close a vent.

I Live in the Pacific Northwest (USA) and our weather is quite similar to yours in central Germany. I would highly recommend this jacket.

A shopper asked: Would washing the jacket and pants like this adversly affect the Gore-tex? Jun 2, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Occasionally washing textile motorcycle gear is something that most manufacturers actually recommend for their gear. Every jacket will come with a tag on how to care for the garment (and this information can also be found and the manufacturers website). This tag will tell you exactly how to wash/clean the item. GORE-TEX jackets are also washable, but again we would take special care to follow exactly what the tags recommend. In terms of washing the jacket to try and soften it up, this would theoretically be possible however it is not something that manufacturers recommend and thus we would caution against doing so.

A shopper asked: I am looking at the Klim Badlands or a similar Rukka. Which jacket has the stronger CE rated protection? I am 6'3" 225 lbs, my chest is 46 or about 120cm. Which size of the Rukka or Klim would be best? I am in need a strong 4 season jacket.

I like the Rukka because it doesn't appear to be so baggy, but I read so many good reviews on the klim. I have Klim Pants, but I dont neccessarily have to match and never connect through the zipper.

Christian T: This is the best MC jacket I have ever used. I bought one for my son: he's 6'4" and he wears a large. This will last a very long time in all weathers. It's completely wind and water proof and the pockets are designed for the rider: easy to access and plenty of them. Armor is first rate and is on the chest and back. There's no jacket that comes close and I have used Hein Gerecke (sp?), Belstaff, Dainese. Dec 31, 2013

Eric D: I am 6'1" 175lbs. 42in. chest I take a M Jacket. It fits great. It isn't baggy. It just isn't a slim cut like the Rukka. I regret not getting the Rukka even thought it would have been more expensive. I may still get the Rukka and give this jacket to a neighbor. I have yet to connect the zipper to the pants.

Stellario D: Hello:

I believe a large will suite you fine. I am 210lbs and 5.11 with your same size chest and the jacket fits me fine although a bit long in the arms. My only complaint is that the arms seem tight, even with the adjusting straps fully extended. So if you have large arms be careful about it.

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements.  Klim sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.
