Klim Badlands Pro Jacket 4.8 5 73 73
excellent quality I am 6'2" 195 lbs with a 34" waist and 34" inseam. I fit perfectly in a large jacket and 34" tall pants. I live in Park City UT. and have had 4 rides total so far at 40-60 deg. I wore cycling shorts and a T shirt under for all my rides and was comfortable. At 60 deg. I did open a couple of vents. The jacket and pants are very well made. Can't comment on water proof yet but would assume it will be in line. April 21, 2014
Great Jacket! Try one size smaller After owning MANY riding jackets over the years, the Klim Badlands jacket meets all my expectations in a premium riding jacket! It is very comfortable to wear and offers excellent protection. I've worn it in 28 F degree temps with a Gerbing liner, and don't need the Gerbings above about 36 degrees. Now if the air flow above 85 degrees is as good, it will be a home run! I see that most people feel that size is normal for them, but I normally wear a 3XL; had to go to a 4XL in an Olympia jacket; but wear a 2XL in the Klim Badlands jacket....so try it on before buying if possible. April 15, 2014
Great Jacket It took me a few trys to get the fit just right for this jacket (I'm short and round) but I am very happy. Revzilla was great to work wtih and I finally got just what I wanted. I've been able to wear in the rain and in 90 degrees this weekend. It vents very well. I really like the safety features. April 14, 2014
Solution for all weather Very good insulation,can ride in just a T shirt and jacket in 10C. Lots of vents. The jacket is a bit heavy but confortable. I usually wear size XL but this runs a bit larger. April 10, 2014
The proof is in the pudding Since there are a ton of reviews on this jacket, I'll try and touch on some of the things others have not. I was in the market for a not good but great 3 season jacket. I do a lot of commuting (50 miles each way) and ride through various weather conditions. Some mornings when I ride in, it's 45-50 degrees and by the time I head home it's 70+. So I wanted some flexibility as well. Let me first say that I'm a Dianese fan boy. Dianese boots, gloves, jacket, socks, the whole nine yards. I really had my eyes on the Dianese Carve Master Gor-tex and the Dianese Ridder Gor-tex jackets. As far as style goes, DIanese can't be beat. But here comes the Klim Badlands Pro. This jacket won a Zilla award and there are a million gleaming reviews on it, so I had to check it out. The two big things that turned me onto the Klim Badlands Pro....1. No liner, some people might want a liner but for me since I'm not riding in 30 degree weather, I didn't want to mess with taking a liner out and putting it back in during those unpredictable spring and fall days.The Klim jacket fits the bill for 40 and above with no liner, no problem. No liner also means direct ventilation which for me, means I can wear this thing into summer. Second was all the armor. People gripe about the price of this jacket, but unlike the two other DIanese jackets I was looking at, this baby comes with back and chest protection. Like others have said, the price is high and I am sure you are asking yourself "Is the juice worth the squeeze?" Yes it is, you will NOT have buyers remorse. This jacket is an investment and Klim guarantees it for life, so if you have issues, send it in and they will fix it. I don't say this too often about gear, but this particular piece is perfect. March 17, 2014
Nicely built The jacket comes out of the box HEAVY! At first I was like "OMG, I just wasted $800 bucks!" I live in South Carolina so weight means heat. BUT, once I got it on, the weight disappeared. How do they do that? It was no longer noticeable. The ventilation is really really good. This jacket dumps heat and it is adjustable to get the right amount of flow. I love the water proofness without having to have a liner. I hate pulling over and adding a liner when it starts to rain. Rode in 33 degree weather and with just a fleece liner I was perfect. Very comfortable. Storage is good, but the jacket needs a little break in to make it easy to get in and out of pockets. I wish it had a better storage system inside the coat. The jacket is right on size wise. Im 6'3, 225 lbs, and XL was right on. Allot of range of motion without being baggy. Very well designed. THe ONLY negative is the collar. I suggest you wear a scarf or gator, it will chaff horribly. Painful after just 30 minutes. Wish it had better attachments for next protection or add on hi vis vest. I don't want to spend 900 bucks on a hi viz coat. So a integrated optional vest option would be awesome for hi traffic areas. Guys, gals, worth EVERY PENNY! I normally am a buyers remorse guy, not with this coat. March 11, 2014
Great Jacket and bombproof I bought this to replace the Revit Everest GTX. At the same price point, the difference is huge. The Klim is a lot more beefier and you can tell it will last longer, the finish is also top notch. The venting works incredibly well and I like how the color isn't too snug. Very happy with the jacket and runs true to size. March 8, 2014
Buy once cry once! Excellent Jacket! The quality is typical Klim! It's pricy but considering the features and level of protection it offers, it's worth it! I hope to never need the protection but I'm glad to have it when traversing the asphalt jungle called I-410. I was worried about buying this jacket living in South Texas, the summers can get HOT! The eight vents do their job! I tested it in 95 degree temps, with good results. As long as the bike was moving at least 20 mph, the air-flow was adequate. Out of the box the Jacket feels heavy but that weight disappears once you put it on. Moves well with me, allows full range of motion. I'm just as happy with the pants. February 10, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Patrick S: Wanted a bomb proof coat and hopefully a little better venting than the latitude. Apr 22, 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 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
Jon B: Heavy Jacket but is comfortable, waterproof and I can wear this in temperatures from 20 to 120 degrees, I have done it. Gets alot of use. Dec 10, 2013
T Douglas S: Quality of Klim product. Oct 21, 2013
Edward J. A: Impressed with the quality in design and materials. Wish I had taken this route the first time around. Would have saved myself some money in the long run. Sep 16, 2013
John J: I chose the Badlands Pro based on customer reviews on this site and various boards. I wanted a high performance jacket with a waterproof shell that offered adequate ventilation. Sep 3, 2013
Geoffrey E: For use adventure riding and the rain protection material. The features looked great. Klim reputation. Aug 22, 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

nielsm: I'm a 46" chest and went with the XL. The Large was too tight in the chest for me (couldn't even zip it closed). Arm length seems good, but there are plenty of cinches to tighten it down, which may help with length.. Nov 5, 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
Reply to Francis Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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

Charles S: The collar has Velcro tabs that can hold open the collar on warmer days if needed. With all the vents open and the collar pulled back the jacket vents very well. Apr 10, 2014

Marcio R: Yes, the jacket has a good way to keep the collar opened, using a velcro. I already used and it works a lot! Apr 10, 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: 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.

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.

ctwheels: Look at my review, I went with a Large( I was swimming in the XL), unless you're ridiculously huge in the shoulder area or gutissimo, Med should be good. If it doesn't fit...you can always return it, that was my only option since there were no dealers near me. May 14, 2012

Baknthsdle: I tried on this jacket in a large at the Toronto motorcycle show Jan 6, I'm 5' 10" 168 lbs 43" chest and found the jacket to be a bit generous in the chest and LONG in the torso and arms. I think you would be safe ordering it in a medium. Feb 11, 2012

Is there any plan for Klim to launch XS-size or Women size Badlands Pro?

I think XS might work for a woman.
