Klim Latitude Misano Hi Vis Jacket
Excellent moto attire can be hard to find for chicks if you are averse to pink and prefer something protective, not just stylish. After having another well respected protective clothing vendor's jacket and feeling like I was wearing a jacket cut in the shape of a garbage bag, I am totally happy with my Klim. It is well fitted and the features well thought out. Keeps me warm in the cold, cool in the heat, dry in the rain and I don't look like Bozo the clown. I highly recommend this jacket.

Bad A** Jacket
Really nice jacket with great styling and made with great material. I'm 6'10" and 240 so I got the 2XL so its a little roomy, which I like. Great vents for airlflow. I live in Las Vegas and can wear this up to about 95 degrees. Sleeves are as long as any jacket out there. My only knock is the collar isn't the most comfortable, tends to ride back and hit my throat so I have to adjust it everyonce in a while. I would highly recommend all of the Klim products.

Quality all the way.
This Klim Latitude Misano Hi Vis Jacket is exactly what I wanted & it delivered. The size is true to size. I wear an extra large & I ordered an extra large & it fit great. They made it with quality material. The sleeves are made for MC riding, a little long off the MC but perfect as you hold the handle bars. They thought of everything. I have not used it in the winter but in 40 degree with just a sweat shirt under I was comfortable.One could layer more under this jacket. I am a high Viz rider, jacket & helmet, but that's just me. I believe this jacket comes in other colors too. The jacket is not cheap but worth every dollar. Once you buy something you want to be satisfied. I am more that satisfied. The protective armor is in all the right places. My overall comment is this is a great jacket.

Loved it-comfortable gear
I switched from wearing leather to this KLIM gear and wish I'd done it years ago. It didn't take but a day to be broken in to my liking. It is very comfortable and has several vents to provide airflow when it's hot and it totally seals out drafts when it's cold.The black color really does absorb the heat so keep that in mind if you plan on riding where it's 90+ degrees F. The temperature did get to 44 degrees F and I was only chilly with a long sleeve t-shirt on underneath. I "dinged" it on comfort only because I did notice the collar is a bit annoying because it stands up and catches on my helmet chin strap when I turn my head. As far as durability--the leather on the inside lower part of the leg should extend around the leg a bit more as I melted the first layer of it on my pipes. Probably just my bad but for that kind of money that shouldn't even be a possibility. Oddly enough I didn't get rained on a 12-day, 4,100 mile trip so I can't speak to its waterproof features but being that it is Gore-Tex I was almost hoping it would rain! I am so happy with the product I bought a second one in light gray--pants too.

Excellent all-weather touring jacket
Took the jacket on an 8-day fall tour up to Nova Scotia a couple of weeks after receiving it. Started on an 85 degree sunny day, and saw temps down to 40 and spent my last day in steady rain. Was as comfortable as anyone can reasonably expect to be in a non-mesh jacket on a hot day - airflow is decent, though not quite as good as my old BMW Rally 2. With everything open I was pretty happy as long as I was moving. In cooler weather the jacket was outstanding, no complaints, and after a full day of rain I remained warm and dry.
Plenty of pockets, and good freedom of movement. Jacket is a little stiff, but is starting to loosen up a bit as it gets broken in. Definitely happy I picked the light grey color as I am sure black would have been unpleasant in the hot sun. I am 6'2" 195 lbs, the large size is comfortable even with a thick sweater on underneath.

With one jacket I have at least five other jackets hanging in the closet never to wear again.
Below 30 degrees, wet weather in NC...electric liner on low is warm enough to allow me to open up the collar on the jacket. Previous waterproof (non_Gortex) jacket needed high heat to stay warm. 95+ degrees in Summer NC..open the zippers and it's not too warm to wear.
water proof is exceptional - but even with the high collar rain gets down in the jacket in a torrential downpour - maybe my helmet is too high in the back.
Belt and arm cinches work great depending on what I wear underneath - daily commute I wear business casual and I am confident I will arrive at work dry, warm and protected every day.
My next ride to Ohio 450+ miles will be much easier with the new Jacket/Pants from Klim...my only regret was not buying them many years ago.

Great out of the box!
While I have not put may miles on this new jacket I really like the fit, the color and the construction which is first rate.

This is a great jacket
I got this jacket about 3 months ago and so far it feels great. I had to buy a heated vest because it has very good ventilation so it may not be the greatest jacket for the very cold days. Over all I am very satisfy with this Klim Latitude Misano Jacket.
