Klim Latitude Misano Jacket
High quallity product, great look and function.
I couldn't pass up the Klim Latitiude when it went on closeout. I have ridden a couple hundred miles of early season wisconsin weather on my BMW GS1200 so far, and this jacket is excellent. The quallity of materials and construction is very good. The impact armor is well positioned and very comfortable. My other riding gear is either BMW or Aerostitch and the Klim gear is in the same class of prodcuts. I would rate it as better then the BMW products but not quite as good as Aerostitch (I have a roadcrafter that is still the top tier in my opinion...Klim sure looks cooler though!) The design of the Klim is very well thought out. Zipper pulls are easy to reach and use with gloves, the venting is excellent and the fit is very good for American riders leaving plenty of room for layering if needed. I'm 6'3" 225 with 37" arms. The 2X fits well. As alwyas, Revzilla is the best. Very quick delivery and top notch service.

Right out of the box comfort!
Let me start by saying I'm the poster boy for Klim. I've been using their stuff since I was a kid riding snowmobiles in the great white north. Their gear is worth every expensive penny you spend on it. When getting back into bikes I started with my trusty Valdez jacket that I had used on snowmobiles and it worked well, with a layer of amour underneath. I decided to upgrade to a dedicated Moto jacket and didn't want to have to carry separate rain gear. I purchased the Badlands Pro first, wow what a jacket and much more than I needed. I didn't like the chest protector that dug into my neck, of which I have none.... So I read a bunch of reviews, watched Anthony's video's, talked to guys that own them, and even stopped in the Revzilla retail store to try stuff on. All that to say I am very happy with the Latitude Misano and am not sure why Klim stopped producing them. For me it is just the right mix of protection, but not the stiff unyielding fabrics of the Badlands Pro. There is not as much structure in the Latitude which makes it more comfortable out of the box. I do miss the kidney belt that the Badlands had, but not enough to go back. The neck roll is much better on this jacket for me and doesn't bite like the Badlands. More due to my limited, albeit no neck than the jacket. Storage is good, and airflow is great as usual with Klim gear. Sizing is spot on, I'm 5'10' 230lbs and wear and XL. That leaves me room for a base layer and mid layer / heated jacket underneath without feeling like the Michelin man. I also appreciate the medical alert pocket with free card to fill it. I don't want to ever have to use it, but it's good to know the information is there for first responders.

Even better than the 840
I had a Latitude 840 before I bought this jacket. Nothing wrong with the 840, other than being a bit stiff. This jacket has the same fit, but is far more comfortable--don't know if it is the misano fabric, but it just feels better. Same great quality from KLIM. I'm 6'3", weigh about 280, and the XXL fits great. I have the matching pants, so I am all the envy of all the poseurs at my local Starbucks.

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.

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.

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.
