Klim Latitude Misano Hi Vis Jacket
This jacket, compared to my old jackets, is wind and waterproof. After breaking it in (which took one 2-day ride in the rain), it is very comfortable. Having a lot of pockets is very handy also. Haven't had a chance to check the airflow as it has been pretty cold weather so far. I like the ability to be able to use under layers with this jacket as compared to the Badlands Pro which would not have accommodated a mid layer.
Great service and price from Revzilla, my go-to store.

Snug as a bug in a rug
I am an intermediate rider who has to navigate through the madness of Silicon Valley traffic and...I am, let's say, a bit fluffy around the middle.
Most riding jackets are prohibitively thin around the middle and this is definitely a great riding jacket for commute or cruising.
The armor the jacket ships with is more than adequate and a number of velcro straps allows you to ensure the elbow protection are in their proper place when riding. Lots of pockets inside and out, lots of adjustments and small touches which really demonstrate what a well thought out and quality product this is.
Hi-Viz all the way!
Great jacket which I would definitely recommend to serious riders (the investment is worth it...or at least skipping starbucks for a few weeks to afford the jacket...no cup holder on my bike anyways)

Solid Jacket, just order it, reviews are correct...
Jacket is legit, light weight for the armor...
Arm vents in right location for GS upright stance.
I'm 220 at 6 foot, solid xl on everything and on my last alpine stars jacket was 2x to be able to layer. Might have been able to get away with a Large in this jacket. Sleeves run long (but easier to tuck in or go over top of your gloves).
I got the gray, normally a black jacket guy, like the looks but I see some "extra" washing in my future.
My riding buddies are hooked and ordering KLIM for our upcoming trip west, you should do the same...

Really wanted to like this jacket....
The collar....if only they did something about this collar. Every time I turn my head left or right my helmets chin strap catches on the collar. It drivers me crazy. What every you do, DON'T REMOVE THE TAGS. I made the mistake of removing the tags from the jacket and going for a ride. It only took one ride to realize there was something not right about the collar. I contacted Revilla and Klim, neither were any help. I waited a long time to buy a Klim jacket, what a disappointment!

This jacket is very well made, and of the highest quality materials, it looks good and is very comfortable. When you get it out of the box, immediately you can feel the substance of greatness. At first feel, you might think the pads would add discomfort, as they have noticeable weight, but they conform to your body, and you don't even feel them since the weight is so well distributed. I have been riding in 30 degree weather in Pittsburgh and it is very warm with only a thin Under Armor thermal long sleeve shirt. The rain, wind and snow are nothing to this jacket. It has well placed pockets, both inside and out that are easy to access, even with gloves on. The visibility is excellent, with the reflective touches placed perfectly.
I'm 6' 2" and 200 lbs and thought the size Large would do it, but I had to bump up to the XL, and it's perfect. The Large was just a bit snug on my upper arms and in the chest, but the XL--though only a scosh bigger---is just right. The ability to adjust the velcro sleeve bands, and the sides means that you can really trim it up nice so that it just feels like an extension of your body.
I read other reviews about the collar, and was concerned it would be uncomfortable, but it's not. When you are on a bike, in a riding position, the fit around the neck is exactly where you want it: snug, but there is no irritation on the chin or neck as others would have you believe. It's air and water tight, and so I'm not sure where the others had a problem. I suppose if you put it on and sit down to watch TV it could bunch beneath the chin, but believe me when I tell you it is exactly the right fit for when you are on a bike.
I was really concerned about spending this much money on a jacket, but I am so happy with it, I would recommend it to anyone. Once you put it on and take a ride in whatever weather that comes your way, you will be just as thrilled as I am.

so far super happy
I've only had the chance to ride in the jacket once so far but i am super happy with my choice. living in the PNW i really wanted a fully waterproof jacket that i didn't have to worry about removable liners with. my first ride was about an hour long in washington rain, i only wore a t-shirt underneath, by the end of the ride i was dry and still relatively warm. waterproof and windproof is great. i'm of pretty small stature, but when i tried on other klim jackets the mediums were too small in the arms length. the large leaves plenty of room but still leaves the armor where it needs to be. it will be great for moving around a lot on trail rides and dual sporting and will keep me dry in the inevitable rain. i really like the long back and shorter front because it keeps air from coming up from the bottom like i had happen in my old jacket, the other upside to this fir is that it allows the jacket to sit comfortably when riding my klr and my honda hornet. closeout pricing was what got me to bite, and I'm glad i did. more riding will prove how good it is.

great fit and features
I bought this because of the looks and colors, hi viz, the latest armor and the Gortex waterproofing. I wasn't disappointed.
