Love the jacket, slight compromises are worth it in the heat.
I ordered two different Klim jackets: the Induction and the Apex, and two different Rukka jackets: the Airrider and the Airrock -- to try on all four and ended up choosing the Induction as the best of the bunch. Good news, it was also the cheapest!!!

The good: it fits me perfectly, I am 6'3", 210 lbs with a 46" chest and ape-ishly long arms. Seriously, like a chimp. I have a build like a tall chimp. I just realized that... Anyway, I ordered the XL (in all of them) the and the Induction fit me perfectly right out of the box. It's NOT TOO BAGGY and the flex panels at the shoulder blades offer just the right amount of room for me to reach forward and lean into my Monster S4RS.

The Hi-Viz version looks Bad! in a good way. The mesh in silver looks like freaking knight's armor and the hi-viz is bright as shrt and the silver tape stripes are RACY! It's cut more like a sport-jacket than an ADV outfit, so I don't feel like an old guy riding a BMW when I'm wearing it. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I am kind of an old guy. And I have a BMW, too.

The thing flows air like a ... and it's kind of cool that it comes with a windproof, waterproof, nylon jacket on the inside. Neither the Rukka Airrider, nor the more expensive Klim Apex jacket come with rain protection so it's an added bonus, though it's not Gore-Tex, has no pockets and it's made in Vietnam.

The mesh is CRUNCHY! It is truly gnarly, way bigger and badder than the pajama-textured Cordura AFT in the Rukka gear (massive thumbs down -- I want this to protect me in a high-speed slide on tarmac, not for a sleep-over at Betty Lou's). Klim, you had me at "Karbonite," not that I know what that means. Adding kevlar to this weave probably makes it literally bullet-proof.

The Bad: The whole thing is made in Vietnam. That's kind of a bummer, as I know Polaris owns Klim, and I always think of Polaris as this whole Made-in-America kind of company. I guess that doesn't really matter than much, since I consider myself a pretty global person, and people in Vietnam need jobs too but, somehow I then perceive a lower quality. Am I xenophobic?

The armor is touted as a big deal in the video, but it doesn't feel like a big deal compared to the armor in my Dainese and Alpinestars leathers. Neither did the armor in the other Klim jacket or the Rukka stuff, and maybe this is perception again because it's a lightweight, textile jacket. But the back protector, for instance, doesn't cover all of my back, and there is no chest protection to speak of. Ribs aren't that important to me anyway, I have 12 on each side, right?

I've ordered a stand-alone chest protecter from Forcefield.

Bugs get caught in the silver mesh and I'm sure they'll be a biotch to clean out over time. Also, getting the hi-viz areas at all dirty makes me cringe, and riding motorcycles right means getting everything dirty a lot, but I guess it'll be washable.

Over all, the good outweighs the bad by a long-shot, and it's so cool with the airflow that I'll be choosing this over my leathers all northeastern humid-summer long.

Saved Me
On the maiden ride with this jacket got into a pretty knarly crash. Got thrown off my bike and thru some barbed wire. Not one cut! The mesh is ripped in a few places, but, not me.

I'm a big guy 6 Feet 1, 300 lbs, fit really well, lots of movement and didn't feel constricted.

Thing looks great. Will definetly get a new one, when I'm healed up from my 5 broken ribs.

Definitely worth the premium.
I was looking for something to help with the long Virginia summers. I'm definitely ATGATT, do more miles than I care to admit and ride year-round (Except in ice).

First off, the Klim Induction in the Hi-Viz scheme looks far better than the pictures or video. The yellow is much more vibrant than most other Hi-Viz gear I've seen which is a definite asset without being over-the-top.

The most important aspect of the Klim Induction (Aside from the armor) is the very substantial mesh. My first ride was on a 75 degree morning and at first it felt wrong. Not because of the jacket, but it felt like I was wearing a short sleeved tee.
In short the mesh is fantastic and today, even at 90 degrees I didn't sweat even with a dress-shirt underneath.
The front is basically entirely mesh long with large panels along the arm which also allow airflow all the way from just above the wrist to the arm-pit.
The rear is another large panel of mesh and encloses the D3O back protector.

It has D3O armor. I hope it never gets used but it's so much more compliant than anything else I've seen which makes it unnoticeable while riding, a huge compliment.

Great fit and finish is what I expected from a high-end mesh jacket, and this is as close to perfect as possible. The shoulders are snug without being tight, the elbow protection stays where it should and uses velcro straps for added peace of mind - I can't see these moving in the unfortunate event of an off and is confidence-inspiring.

The wrist straps have taken a little criticism in other reviews, however I have found them to be capable and functional with both gauntlet race gloves and mesh short gloves. No complaints here whatsoever.

For storage we have the usual zippered side pockets which are roomy enough for my wallet (Packed with gas receipts) in one side and a few snacks on the other. Both sides have ingenious zipper "igloos" which I assume are to stop clothing getting snagged, or to keep them warm.. A nice touch.

The Napoleon pocket on the left breast houses a waterproof bag for things you don't want to subject to the rain (Mogwai, etc).. I keep my SpeedPass/EZPass in there because I don't own any Mogwai.

The collar is comfortable and unobtrusive, the zippers are great quality, smooth and feel like they should last forever.
On the left sleeve there's a compartment for a medical information card which is redeemable on the Klim website.
As for reflectivity, we have a wide strip between the shoulders on the back, one on each outer bicep, one on each breastbone and two on each forearm.

The bottom of the jacket is adjustable to accommodate those with (Or without) middle aged spread.

Although this is described as an American cut I still think it fits as some of the European brands which I prefer.
For reference, I'm a 34 waist with a 45 chest and broad shoulders and went with a large which feels like it was tailor-made and doesn't flap in the wind.

I haven't had a chance to use the waterproof liner yet so all I can really say is that it's grey and has a trick zipper which disappears when closed.
The liner is very easy to insert and remove which is a bonus for when those darker skies start rolling in quickly so you're not fumbling for what seems like hours trying to keep yourself dry on the side of the road getting laughed at by cagers.

I'm very picky about gear to the point of being annoying.
The Klim Induction is by far my favorite item of gear.
I wouldn't change anything about it and I wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

Absolutely recommended.

Close to Perfect
Let me preface my review by disclosing that I live in Tampa, FL where temperatures and humidity can be relentless in the summer. My review may be skewed because the normal "Summer" filter on Revzilla's site doesn't take into account your climate. I'll take a dry, high-desert summer over one in the Southeast any day.

I've only had this jacket since February and this review is being written a month before the start of summer. Although the jacket has amazing air flow and a great liner for rain events, I would not recommend it for climates with extremely high humidity such as you find in Florida. As long as you are moving it feels fine, but at a stand still you'll still feel like passing out from the heat especially if you have your helmet on too. And forget wearing anything over your pants! I wear the jacket daily on my commutes but lately the temps have been exceeding 90F and the humidity has been in the high 80s. It's almost intolerable to try wearing...well, anything really, much less a jacket. My Comfort rating reflects the jackets fit which is perfect, not the level of comfort in the heat.

Still, if I were in any reasonable climate I'd wear it without issue. The air flow is amazing and the pockets are very easy to get into even with gloves on. I especially like the silver option to increase its albedo and lessen the heat it absorbs. The liner is easy to remove, I just wish there was a back pocket to store it in. I'd highly recommend this jacket for climates less humid than the Southeast US or alter its riding season to exclude the hottest months of the year.

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.

Top of the Line
I purchased the Klim Induction jacket to replace a HD branded mesh jacket that was very comfortable but which did not have a back protector. When I received my Klim jacket, I very nearly returned it; I'm so very glad I did not!

Let me say first off that the workmanship and materials are first rate. My initial concern with the jacket was that it felt somewhat uncomfortable to wear, especially the collar, which irritated my Adam's apple. However, I decided to keep it anyway and was very pleased to find that the collar actually was not a problem once I was on the bike and in riding posture (I ride a HD cruiser, so fairly upright). Also, the initially stiff mesh of the jacket seems to have relaxed slightly, and the fit is far better and more comfortable after a few rides.

Airflow is excellent, though of course with a back protector, the jacket is slightly warmer than the one I had without. That's an unavoidable trade-off, and I would rather have spine protection.

This jacket is not cheap by any means, but as the saying goes, if you pay for quality, you only cry once.

I recommend the Klim Induction jacket whole-heartedly...and by the way, it works very well with the Induction gauntlets, which will fit under the sleeve cuffs.

One minor nit-pick for Klim: the reflective tape, while fairly good, seems ill placed. Much of it faces forward, which is also the direction of the high-intensity halogen headlamp on my bike, so redundant. There should be much more tape on the back and the backs of the sleeves. When riding, the tape on the forearms faces straight up, so presumably low-flying aircraft will not land on you, but otherwise I don't see the point.

All that aside, I don't think you can get a better mesh jacket. And many thanks to Reveille for the excellent customer service.

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.

Fat guy in a...big jacket.
Bought this, first motorcycle jacket, before I'd ever ridden a motorcycle. Based on the reviews and sizing charts, I was just looking for something to wear this (my first) summer that would actually fit me. I am 6' and weigh 320 lbs, 54" chest, 48" waist, and wear 42" jeans I went with the 3XL to fit my waist, but have found that I probably could have gotten away with a snugly fitting XXL but the 3XL means I can eat a big lunch and still be OK. ;)

I also sprung for the CE level 2 back protector, which just seems like a slightly thicker version of the one that came with the jacket, so I am not sure I would get that again.

It was 90 degrees today and partly cloudy (some humidity), and my 320 lbs felt comfortable riding back in to work at lunchtime...so I'd say I got exactly what I was looking for. It was certainly the most expensive mesh jacket I have ever purchased, but I'd say it was worth every penny and Klim probably has found a customer for life (at least until I lose some weight and can fit into other brands).

Best hot summer jacket
Great product.
Best hot summers.....
For riding in hot Australian summer 35+degrees C
Definitely for the sport bike riders as well
I worry with the elbow and shoulder armour a bit, this is the first jacket with D3O, so not sure how it will hold up in a crash.
Ton of air flow, does not flop around
Lots of pocket space for my use.
I am 5.11, 70 kg slim built size medium fits perfect.

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.

This is the best hot weather jacket you can buy. I run this jacket in 115 degree heat in the Nevada desert with no issues. It's good down to about 70 degrees with out a liner (for me at least) Past that, you can run it with the rain liner, paired with a fleece undergarment to get you down into the 50's. Past that, You need to look at a 4 season jacket. Fitting is fantastic! I'm 205, 6'3', and run the XL. Very happy with it!

I love the look and the high-viz colorway. I wear a large T-Shirt. 180 lbs about 5-9" tall. 34-36 waist. But the large size of this jack was not fitted enough and the sleeves were too long so I ordered a medium. Looks and fits way better. The ventilation on hot days is amazing and when it cools down the waterproof liner works well to shield the wind. Overall I love this jacket. I wish the made the exact same jacket without the mesh for the cooler season.

I am partial to Klim products and I needed something for the real hot days of summer. This seemed to meet that requirement.

Multiple review, all positive, along with Klim's reputation for quality.

It's a great product. Fits well. Well made. Great protection and yet cool on hot days.

longer jacket and slimmer fit with good protection

Looking for good hot weather ventilation in a mesh jacket with the protection of D3O Armor and the uncompromising quality materials found in Klim.

I needed a new Spring/Summer jacket and Klim is one of the best with all the safety features I wanted. I really liked the Revzilla video review of the product. Thanks Revzilla.

Klim reputation, features, reviews were very good

I've been "Upgrading" my gear this year . . . I've found Klim to be among the finest for features, design, and function. The Induction Jacket is no exception.
Harlan F on Jun 2, 2016
I needed a protective, yet well ventilated jacket for summer riding. This product fits the bill due to it's features (including waterproof liner) and Klim's reputation for quality

Looked like that "bomb proof" mesh and all inclusive protection I'm looking for!
Tony S on May 10, 2016
With a layer underneath of either a light sweatshirt or the included liner, I'm finding this jacket is the ideal companion for weather between low mid-50's to the mid-90's. Lower and i go with the Badlands. Higher and I still use the Induction but accept that safety in high temperature just means some extra sweating.

Great jacket. I purchased the high viz and really like this for daily summer riding.
Ducati796 on May 4, 2016
purchased this jacket for its level of finish (seam, zippers etc.) integral armor (CE approved), lack of bulk, unrestricted movement, visibility and flexibility for varying weather conditions
Andrew S on Apr 29, 2016
The trusted Klim name and the video product review by Revzilla were the main reasons.

COOL 2-3 SEASON HOT WEATHER JACKET
SAM R on Apr 22, 2016
Great airflow while still very protective and with some hi-viz areas. Klim quality.
Brett B on Apr 16, 2016
Have a Klim Latitude jacket that is awesome but unfortunately too hot to wear in hotter weather or over 80 degrees.
Vincent R on Apr 10, 2016
This is the best hot weather jacket you can buy. I run this jacket in 115 degree heat in the Nevada desert with no issues. It's good down to about 70 degrees with out a liner (for me at least) Past that, you can run it with the rain liner, paired with a fleece undergarment to get you down into the 50's. Past that, You need to look at a 4 season jacket. Fitting is fantastic! I'm 205, 6'3', and run the XL. Very happy with it!

Great summer jacket. With the liner and extra layers stayed warm at 43 degrees.
Brian V on Oct 19, 2016
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.
A shopper on Feb 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is the shoulder and elbow armor the T5 3D0 like the videos says? The actual description, both here and on Klim's site, do not mention the T5.
franklin k on Apr 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have the jacket and armor - both the best I've ever owned.

Just took all my leather (perf'd) Dainese, Rev'it and Alpinestar and am giving it away. I now own five Klim jackets and seven pairs of pants. The T5 D3O I've been down with twice - first off at about 25mph, and the second, approx. 45mph.. Not a scratch - 2nd off sprained my middle finger on right hand and I use that finger a lot! LOL.

Best of luck.
5 foot 11 and 205 pounds 45 in chest 41 waist. (36w 31 L pants, 44 regular jacket, 17 in neck 34/35 shirt)
Should I get a large or an extra large?

Thanks
A shopper on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
is the armor removable?
todd p on Jul 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The armor is removable. The jacket is outstanding. I also have the Badllands Pro and this jacket complements it well.
what is the temperature range of this jacket approx?
john d on Mar 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have worn this Jacket in Arizona(Mid 90's and i was not standing still) and Palm desert when the wind whipped up to 40mph and a light drizzle(58 Deg. with liner in) and I was the most comfortable that any other jacket I have owned.. The liner just hangs inside this mesh jacket and keeps the cold air off of you and it comes out with just one button at the collar. I like the simplicity of being able to quickly make it for hot or cool weather with mother nature can't make up her mind. At this price you will not be disappointed with the strengh and flexiblilty of a All Star jacket like this one!!
Where is this coat made?
Erik H on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Vietnam.

On a related note, I've been very happy with the jacket so far, but will say that I've experienced some "furring" of the fabric on one of the front panels, due to wear. Seams are holding up well, though, and it flows air like crazy. It's a bit cooler than my Rev'It summer jacket, but isn't as burley in terms of armor/protection. I got the blaze/safety yellow trimmed version, which is sufficiently understated so as not to be fugly, and serves the conspicuity purpose very well. That said, if you can only have one summer jacket, I would go for the Rev'It, based on the additional protection it affords.
Is there a pocket for back armor?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes there is. My jacket came with D30 back armour included. It is the same size shape and type as the back armour that came with my Badlands Pro, it has wavy perforations on the side that faces your back and small air vents allowing great air flow underneath. Pretty sure that the back armour is included standard. The pocket also fits a Forcefield back armour that I have that came with another jacket.
Can an undergarment like a North Face or thin sweater fit comfertably in this jacket for night rides or just days that are around 40-50?
Caleb H on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I guess it depends on what size you get relative to your normal jacket size. I am a tall slender guy (6'1" and 165lbs) and I bought a medium. It fits perfect with very little room for an substantial undergarment. I find on slightly cooler days I can zip in the rain liner and that cuts down the airflow through the mesh pockets.

The best option for warming up this jacket is probably purchasing a heated liner and even that would probably be a snug fit.
Hello. I would like this jacket but I'm fat. No easier way to get that point across. My sleeve is 32". My waste is 52". My chest is 51.5". To make this jacket fit my waste I need a XXL but it will be long in the sleeves and the chest. Any suggestions besides loosing some weight?

Thanks!
A shopper on Dec 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My suggestion is to purchase the jacket and try it on. If you don't like the fit, simply return it or exchange it.
I'm 5 foot 9 in. with a 32 in. waist and my jacket fits good around the shoulders but a little generous around the stomach and the arm is slightly long.
If I ride a street bike only, I would have gotten a Medium. I got the large because I ride a dual sport. I need the flexibility of the jacket for dirt riding as well as street.
Gah. Sorry if this is a repost. I'm on the edge of some of the specs for XL. 6' long torso 240lbs 44" chest 43" waist.
XL too small? XXL too big?
A S on Apr 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6'2" 270 with 53" chest and 43" waist. A XL is snug (but perfect for a T shirt underneath) but fits well.
A XL may be loose on you, but the jacket doesn't flap.
