Klim Latitude Misano Hi Vis Jacket (Size XL Only)
Excellent features for the money
I rode 3300 miles in 5 days .There was rain all around me but I did not get rained on. The temperatures were in the 80's and 90's but the jacket and pants never seemed to be overly hot, the jacket has plenty of ventilation. I would recommend this product.

Best Protection for the Money
Love how it fits and how the protection stays where I it should. Because of this and understandably so, layering is difficult when the temps drop below 45. Great air flow when temps are warm, even when in 90's. Only gripe is that the velcro on the main zipper does not mate up very well, snaps would be much better. Also the velcro on the cuffs is not going to last. I will be installing stainless snaps. Overall I love this jacket.

This is without question the best jacket I have worn on a m/c for comfort, fit and protection. So far have experienced heavy rain, 45 to 90 degree temps and it is perfect. Very nice venting for the 90 degree stuff, obviously hot when stopped or city ridiing but any speed turns on the a/c. The adjustments on the wrists, arms and waist snug it up a bit for colder temps too all while riding in a t-shirt or light base layer. Highly recommend this Klim jacket and RevZilla is the place to buy.....they make it all too easy.

Using a touring jacket for commuting to work
Klim has won me over with the build quality and durability of their products. Backed by a generous lifetime guarantee, these factors justify the price. However, a brand promise as strong as Klim's can get in the way of the most important aspect of choosing riding gear: fitment. You can shop features, and you can shop price, but these aspects are irrelevant if the gear doesn't fit comfortably.
I wanted a loose-enough fitting jacket I could wear over business clothes without needing extra gear to accommodate the hot days or the wet days. Klim's American box cut accommodates a variety of body shapes and sizes with adjustment points: at the neck, butt, waist, biceps, and wrists.
I recommend taking the time and spending the money to try several jackets. If this one fits you, you'll be very pleased with its features and durability.
I wear this jacket with the Klim Torrent Gore-Tex Over Pants and REV'IT! Rodeo Boots to and from work in the heat/wet of Houston, Texas five days a week.
A size small fits my body:
height 175cm 68in
weight 63.50kg 140lbs
shoulders 37.00cm 14.57in
arms 62.00cm 24.41in
biceps 27.50cm 10.83in
chest 91.00cm 35.83in
Waistline 82.00cm 32.28in

Finally for man-sizes.....
Went through so many jackets trying to find a replacement for my 8 year old Rev'it adventure jacket -- and wasn't thrilled with Rev'it prices or their colors to be honest. Must've tried 4 or 5 others before this one hit the nail on the head. Great style, super venting and armor - great adjustability. And just right for a 'bigger' guy like me: 6'2", 265 with a 36 sleeve and 42 waist.
YES - a 2XL that actually fits......and looks great. AWESOME

Awesome Klim Jacket !!!!
Just bought this jacket for our 2 week ride, will be visiting
5 western states. I will have a better assessment of this jacket after we get back. So far I have worn it in 60 to 106 degree temperatures, haven't tested it in the rain yet.
I have always liked Klim, but have had a hard time paying so much for their products. I finally bit the bullet and bought this jacket, I am glad I did. I like the fact that I can wear layers underneath, it has the many vents for airflow and it is a well constructed jacket that will last for a long time.
I normally wear a 2x jacket, but the x- large fit's great. (5'10" 230 lbs.) 38" waist 47" chest.

If you're looking for "crash test dummy" protection, this is it!
I've been wearing this jacket for two continuous months and am entering the third and last month of this summer's trip. Experienced 100F+ temps leaving the SW in early June and with all vents open, the airflow kept me comfortable with just a t shirt beneath. Suiting up before moving can feel like a sauna bi put once moving, all good. Jacket takes some breaking in before it begins to conform to one's body. It also has a tendency to bunch up around neck and shoulders if you don't adjust the long tail under your backside to hold it down.
In the rain...and I do mean RAIN as in 5+ consecutive days in Ontario. I stayed dry and comfortable with various vents open/closed. On cold NW Montana mountain mornings and evenings, layering with thermal underwear and a light fleece did the trick.
Overall, a very good product, worth the investment.

I love this jacket. I have the hi viz and I enjoy it. I wore it to about 30°F and stayed warm with a wool sweater and vest. It holds up well in the rain, I stayed dry. And now summer in Chicago has finally started. It is great. It is warm in stop and go traffic but you remain relatively comfortable. The vents do a great job of channeling air over sweat to keep you cool (when moving of course). Lots of pockets for stuff and yes it's expensive but it's worth it especially when you see the dorks on scooters and flip flops getting soaked and you stay dry and comfortable. Would not hesitate to buy again.
