Klim Latitude 840 Jacket
Keeps me dry
This is my first "real" jacket. Wish I had bought klim years ago. Just road 1600 mi out west. From 100 * to 50 *. Jacket was great until it got over 85 degrees. Then had to go for something lighter. Hit a lot of rain and was bone dry. If I'm going to use it in cold weather, I Definatley need a liner or a fleece. For being 100% waterproof , I breathes unbelievably well. I bought an xtra large so I can layer up underneath for the cold. The salesman thought I'd be better in the large, but I felt to confined and like the extra room. Buy it. You won't be disappointed !!

Nice jacket fit is good for a small man
Just received this jacket today so I can't say much about its performance but...
When I was reading reviews for this jacket, all I could read was how the fit was for really big guys.
I'm a small man so I'll pitch in my reviews on the fit.
I'll get back after wearing it for a while for technical side of it.
I am 5'-7" and weight 150 pounds.
I was recommended by Revzilla to order a medium cause the sleeves would be short in a small.
I was afraid the jacket would be large and baggy on my frame.
It's not the case ;)
The fit is very good, I have room for layering and the adjustment make this jacket very comfortable.
The jacket is well made and it looks really good.
Again thumbs up for Revzilla and their great service.
Ps: excuse my English, I'm a French guy from Quebec .

This jacket Is everything it's product description specifies. Waterproof, wind proof , comfortable, technical, and good looking.. The one and only minor issue I can see is the front zipper, it needs a waterproof zipper setup, with wind and riding speed it's possible for water to seep through the zipper. Not a huge issue and I'm struggling to find a negative to the jacket , bit overall I'm very happy and confident I'll be wearing it for years.. I have to say also I'm in Australia and the postage was spot on, it took about 10 days so was quite impressed!

Opinion After 1 Year Of Use:
Left central IL on my F6B Glodwing Christmas day, 30 degrees and rode to Sarasota, FL. On the return trip it was 19 degrees when I pulled into the drive. I had Klim Badlands pants, Klim base layer & Klim mid-layer on below. On top I had a Klim base layer, Powerlet heated jacket liner, Powerlet heated glove liners and the Latitude jacket.
Have taken several long trips this summer with temps up to 95 degrees with comfort. Wearing the Klim or similar base layer in warmer temps actually keeps you cooler due to better evaporation.
One hot day I was in and out of multiple storms. Just zipped up the front air intake vents on the arms when entering rain. Left arm pit vents and back vent open and stayed dry. Same with the pants. Exit rain, open air intake vents on jacket & pants and you have good ventilation.
I would never have believed that any one garment is capable of providing such comfort over such a wide range of harsh conditions. If you are a serious rider, Klim is worth every penny.

Good jacket overall
Overall it's a good jacket. Great look and protection. For me it's a great jacket below a temp of 80F, since the air does not seem to flow through that well. Klim could have done something different with the collar to give it more airflow options. Right now its either velcro closed or open and flapping in the wind which can be annoying. As far as quality of manufacture, I don't how it could be better. I have had zero problems with any of the zippers or seams.

Great protection from the elements.
I was after a high quality outer layer and Klim is defiantly high quality. I am 5' 11" about 180lbs and was afraid I would swim in the large size so opted for a medium. The fit is snug in the body but he sleeve length is perfect. I can't fit much in the pockets due to the snug fit in the chest. I have ridden in rain and temps down to 0 and I am very impressed with the the way this jacket seals out the rain and the cold. The amour is comfortable and well placed. The strap in the middle of the jacket should be a little lower to sit over the kidney,s better but otherwise this is a really comfortable jacket.

Good product for the $$$$$.
This jacket isn't overburdened with accessories, the ventilation is intelligently designed and it just works well for most of year out here in Seattle. I've added the KLIM induction jacket to my collection and now I'm pretty well equipped for what ever I might find myself riding in.
