Excellent Compliment to the Klim Induction Jacket
I purchased the Klim Gore-Tex Over-shell jacket to go with/over a Klim Induction jacket. The over-shell is marketed as a compliment to the Adventure Rally Air jacket, but I took a gamble that it would work fine over the less expensive Induction jacket. In summary, it works great. Some comments:
> The fit is trim but allows plenty of movement without constraint. I think (subjective) that the Rally Air is a bit bulkier that the Induction which makes the "matching" over-shell just slightly more loose fitting. Regardless, the over-shell matches the shape of the Induction jacket with no significant excess material to flap around in the wind.
> As advertised, I bought a size large over-shell for a size large jacket. Fits as it should.
> The lack of pockets seemed to be a drawback, but after riding with it a bit I have not found it to be an issue (at least for me). For me the over-shell is a secondary “as needed” item. If it is needed as a primary jacket you may want to consider something different that has pockets.
> The materials and workmanship are typical Klim, very good quality. I also have a Klim Badlands jacket/pant set and the over-shell, while simpler in design and materials, is of equal quality.
> In terms of packing the jacket, it is a bit bulkier than a lightweight nylon shell or the liner that comes with the Induction jacket, so factor that in if storage space is super tight.
> I was worried the high(er) collar would be an irritant but that has not been the case. It does a good job of keeping the wind off your neck and is soft and flexible.
> My opinion is that an external shell is better at keeping you warmer than an internal one (e.g., the stock liner for the Induction jacket). Blocking the air away from contact with your body, leaving a dead-air space, seems to be more effective at preventing heat loss.
> I have not used the jacket in the rain so I cannot comment on how well it keeps you dry … I live on the California coast (fog, drizzle) and in drought conditions … I am not likely to get to test this out anytime soon.
> It is pricey ... but it is good quality and it works.
Finally, for sizing, I am 6’0”, 170 lbs and an average build. I ride a BMW F800 GS so I ride in an upright position.
Hope this is of some help.

Plan on using your Rally Air in 4 Seasons? You Need This
If you own the Klim Adventure Rally Air, and plan to ride in more than just sunny warm weather you need this.
While I've yet to ride in the rain with it I did use it to help keep me warm when we were riding in the Rockies and the temperature was in the mid-30s. Yeah I had a baseline layer on, but the Over Jacket did a great job of keeping the cold air from getting to me.
Easily fits over the Adventure Rally air without being overly large. Zippers are easy to use.
If there is one criticism, is that there aren't many pockets on this shell.
Will update my review once I "HAVE" to use it in the rain.

Not sure if there's $400 worth of jacket here.....
I bought this jacket to go with my Adventure Rally Air jacket since they're basically made for each other. While I love the the actual Rally Air Jacket, I'm less than impressed with this overshell, especially at $400. This is more like a $200 product due to it's lack of features, pit-zips, or even one pocket.
-Perfect fit when paired with the Rally Air Jacket.
-Comfortable stretch Goretex.
-No venting. None. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Pit-zips would have been nice for the warm/humid rainy days. The front double overlapping zipper gusset makes it difficult to unzip half way and get any air.
-No Pockets. The Rally Air Jacket is full of pockets, but they don't even give you ONE on the overshell. You have to unzip or reach under the coat to grab your keys or stash a cellphone. For $400 I'd expect at least one pocket somewhere.
-The zippers that attach the two collar types (normal & Leatt/neckbrace) are pretty small and fussy. The main zipper is also a little fussy to get started. Would like to see a larger gauge zipper used in both areas for increased durability.
-Relatively thin jacket, we'll see how well it holds up to the occasional branch whack and stab.
-Not that attractive...it's not bad, but it's not that great either. Color is a strange bluish grey in person, unlike any of their other garments I've seen.
