  • Includes a separate waterproof liner
  • 3M Scotchlite reflective material on upper/lower arms and upper back for nighttime visibility

Klim Induction Jacket 4.8 5 54 54
Good fit, good airflow. Bothersome liner. I've had this new purchase for hot and now cooler Texas weather. I'm surprised about how comfortable it is on warmer days. Really efficient. Fit is as advertised. Even with 38 inch arms the sleeves properly cover my wrists. I was worried about the jacket's length but was pleased my 6'4''--long torso'd upper body--is well covered. I'm also impressed with the size of the back protector, although I don't want to be testing it anytime soon. There are enough pockets for me; I like the neck roll; and reflectors seem great. The only thing I take issue with is the liner. Yes it protects you from the rain; yes it'll help a little with the wind/temperature; but its secured by three snaps located at the collar and two sleeves. The location of the sleeve snaps a few inches up each sleeve can make them hard to find and work. Once that's done putting the jacket with liner on should be a 'snap'--but the bottom of the liner is not secured so I often have to fish around to find where its bunched up and then work the liner zipper around. It's really not difficult, just bothersome/annoying. But overall it's a good three season jacket and good fit. I can't address protection and don't intend to. November 11, 2014
My favourite jacket Purchased from Revzilla before my road trip this summer. My trip was from Vancouver, BC through the BC desert, Montana's Glacier National Pak to Boise Idaho and home. Amazing trip with some extreme heat and some moderately chilly temperatures in the mountains. The jacket flows a ton of air. Even while wearing a back pack as long as I was moving I was nice and cool. When temperatures dip its not great, but that is expected. Its a hot weather coat. As stated in other reviews the waterproof shell is garbage. I have an Icon PDX overcoat and that works much better. If I were Klim I would skip the shell altogether on future models. Its junk and not needed to justify the price of the coat. I think it looks great but to each their own. Definitely a technical riding gear look. October 23, 2014
Excellent features and protection. Good airflow when moving. I'm 5'9', 165-170lbs, 41" chest. Size medium fits just right through the shoulders. I can add a thin fleece layer over a shirt and have comfortable movement. The torso is cut a bit fuller. I wouldn't miss 1"-2" less circumference in the jacket's trunk, but it works. Compared to my current Vanson Ventmax 3 jacket, the Induction is heavier and on the warm side, but feels more protective. It flows air very well while riding. When sitting still, it warms up under the Cordura panels - wherever there is no mesh. I've been commuting in 85-90 degree temps with high humidity so there's not much relief to be had. The back armor is very well-ventilated without a backpack/bag. The jacket's features are excellent - strong and easy zips, convenient and secure pockets, eye-popping reflective bits, and overall excellent construction. I haven't used the rain liner. The armor is impressive. Provides excellent coverage at the shoulders and elbow. In Hawaii's climate, this will be a perfect fall-winter-spring three-season jacket. Now I need a faster bike in summer to capture more airflow. October 21, 2014
You can get similar quality for about half the price. The comments about the extra material bunching up in the sleeves are spot on. That is my biggest issue with this jacket. I have an Alpinstars jacket that was half this price and the sleeves are cut and curved as a motorcycle jacket should be. The fabric seems tough enough and the stitching is good as in all KLIM gear that I've bought so far. The elbow pads do want to come out of the proper location when you slip it on and you'll need to pull them back into place after you get both arms in. I expected a much better fit and attention to detail for the price. October 1, 2014
For touring bring a waterproof over jacket Great but water proof liner doesn't breath like GoreTex and a bit disappointed that the liner doesn't have a light fleece liner like the Rukka. There is no Mesh pant to match the jacket. This is a big mistake for Klim, simply put they left lots of money on the table since lots of folks probably want a suit. Luckily the Airwave pant in black from Revit coordinates well, but with no waterproof liner coming with these. So when you get a rain over jacket for the Iinduction get some rain pants too. September 15, 2014
Absolutely love it Maybe it's because I'm a Klim fan, or because I started wearing it in August after hot summer months of wearing the much heavier Latitude Jacket, but I'm a hugely impressed with the new Induction Jacket. It is lightweight. The airflow is great. It looks stellar. The D30 armor makes it look less bulky than other mesh jackets I've seen around. It's definitely not cheap but it was a great buy. September 9, 2014
Stylish and well-built summer jacket First, the bad: This jacket does have long sleeves (as others have stated) for its size. However once you have your gloves on it becomes a non-issue. It's only slightly annoying when walking around in higher temperatures with no gloves on and the extra fabric acts as insulation causing your wrists to get hot. Now with the good: This jacket rocks in all other respects. It provides awesome airflow when moving; feels like the air conditioning is on. It looks nice in black with good styling. $400 well-spent. September 1, 2014
Perfect jacket for 90 degree plus days Jacket and liner system allow you to start the day off at 60 degrees with an underlayer then shed the underlayer and waterproof liner for hot weather. Jacket and padding stay in place and don't flop around at speed. Would have like to see a better collar closure, and access zippers at the cuffs September 1, 2014

Nesbitt C: Can't beat Klim. Wanted stronger mesh jacket than Joe Rocket. Sep 29, 2014
James A N: Replacement for worn and overly ripe Vanson Ventmax 3. Tried the new Ventmax 4. That jacket should come with a safe word.
Reasons for Klim: Protection and hoping stiffer mesh weave flows more air than the alternatives. Quality of materials and construction. Two compromises: I'm not keen on logos and would prefer a different belt/belt loop fastening system. .

JOHN G: Video and reviews Jul 24, 2014
E D: I've got a Gore-Tex riding jacket, but it's not comfortable when temperatures reach around 90F degrees. This is still my preferred jacket for spring and fall riding. However the Klim Induction jacket works great for the summer. Just be sure to zip up the side pockets or be prepared to lose the contents. Jul 22, 2014
Ron M: need good airflow and a collar that closes in front of the neck Jul 21, 2014

vernon v: klim is top of the line for Sled gear, I've had just about ever winter jacket and loved them all. I'm expecting the quality and craftsmanship to be the same. Jun 16, 2014
David B: Saw it on the new products page of Revzilla when I signed on. The video reviews are great. Easy to buy with confidence. Jun 9, 2014
Adam S: Because even though the Klim Overland jacket wasn't right for me, I was impressed with the quality of that jacket and the size large fit me better than anything else i've tried. Also, I wasn't aware of the Induction jacket when I ordered the Overland and because the added ventilation of a mesh jacket and slightly shorter length are probably more appropriate for me than the Overland. Jun 8, 2014
Gentil N: Venting and durability. Jun 6, 2014
B B: High quality, hot weather, high vis. Includes liner for cool wet weather. Sounds good for N. Cal. Riding. Won't know for sure till I get it. Jun 5, 2014
David E: Has D3O armor and looks good. Jun 2, 2014
Shanon M: I find Klim products to have unquestionable quality and craftsmanship. Apr 25, 2014
Robert P: I currently own the BMW Air Flow jacket 3. In comparison, the Klim Induction jacket offers a waterproof liner feature that the BMW Air Flow does not have. I cant wait to receive the Klim Induction jacket for further comparisons. Feb 28, 2014
A shopper asked: I'm 5'11" 195 lbs. I plan on using this jacket in the sunshine of Las Vegas summers. And I'm a fair weather rider so I will never ride in the rain and therefore never use the inside liner. Do you think I should go with medium or large? I would be using this in the extreme heat of Las Vegas summer primarily. Feb 13, 2014

Michel W: In the dry weather of vegas a mesh jacket will dry you out very quickly. You have no humidity where you live, get a well vented non mesh jacket and a water cooling vest. You need to protect your body from the wind while riding in high heat dry climate weather or you run the risk of dehydration. Mar 2, 2014
Reply to Michel Good answer? Yes (4) No (1)
john d: and with the liner? Mar 16, 2014
Michel W: Any water proof wind proof liner, even goretex, will bake you in hot weather. Need a breathable shell with vents to control cooling. Try looking at an all cordura outfit from bmw, teiz, or stretch kevlar from motoport. Use those with a cooling vest in dry heat. In high humidity the mesh Klim would work well. But again for the cost I probably would go motoport mesh kevlar. Mar 16, 2014
Adam K: I just returned from a long weekend in Las Vegas... I rented a Harley for a couple of days. I brought my Klim with me and it was awesome! I rode in temps ranging from 60 (in the Spring mtns and Mt Charleston) to 105 in the valley... and it worked flawlessly. When it got cooler I tossed the rain liner in... hotter I took the liner out and soaked my tshirt. 105 degrees sucks but it was bearable. Jun 23, 2014
A S: Go Medium man. I'm 6" 180lbs. I'm going medium cos it looks quite roomy in the torso area and the sleeves look long in the video. I prefer my jackets abit closer to my body so it doesnt twist and bunch up if you ever come off the bike. I'm rather slim though So I'm going down a size. I don't ride in the rain either.

TAN L: I also have the Latitude Misano and the Induction jacket. The Latitude jacket is a little roomier than the Induction jacket. The Induction jacket is designed to fit closer to the body because it's a summer jacket, no layering in hot weather.

Sleeves are a bit long but engineered that way so that the sleeve doesn't pull out of the gloves.

I'm 5'9" 165 lbs with 40" chest and I wear size LARGE in both jacket.

Gilbert T: I am 5'11" tall weighing 210lbs, have a muscular athletic build, 45" chest, 34" waist, large arms, and broad shoulders...I got a size large, it is quite snug. I have almost no room left in the bicep area of the jacket and a small amount of room left over in the waist. This is without the internal liner. With the liner on the jacket is considerably tighter, but still able to wear it. I don't really have any room for layering, but its a hot weather jacket and I am not really planning on layering anything underneath. The jacket is fitted and there is no flapping or loose material while riding, which is the way I like it. I believe the extra large would be too big for me. Hopefully this info could help others with sizing concern. Jul 15, 2014

Robert S: I'm 6' even, 205-210 lbs, 44" chest, 36" waist, 34" inseam, 35" sleeves. I bought a size L Induction and it's snug but will work for me (just got it today). No way I will be able to do heavy layers underneath it, and I wish the sleeves were 1/2" longer, but overall I like the fit and the jacket feels great.

From your 41" waist it sounds like you may have a bit of a gut. That and your 45" chest I think rule out a L. I'd try an XL first.

I wear a Med in the Latitude and with the Induction the Medium didn't fit.... Went to the Large and it fit like a glove - with no room to spare....

I'm 5'8" 180LBS

I'd suggest going with the XL

TAN L: I'm 5 foot 9 and 165 pounds with a 40 in. Chest and 34 waist. My Induction jacket is a size large. The jacket fits perfect (close to the body) along the arms and shoulders but a little loose around the waist since I have more of an athletic build.

This summer jacket is designed to fit a little snug yet have plenty of room around the belly if you have a slight gut. There is an adjustment around the bottom of the jacket if you like a tighter fit below the waist. In addition, the jacket has three inside pockets.

Since your frame is slightly larger than mine, I recommend getting an XL.

Hope this help on your decision.

A shopper asked: Do you know if Klim would consider producing a size large with sleeves that are 1.5" to 2" shorter in length? As is, I love this jacket but, like Anthony and most people under 6' tall, the sleeves on the large are too long for me, and the medium is too tight in the chest. Klim would open up a huge market segment with a second size large for us "non-tall" folks. Apr 30, 2014
