Klim Women's Altitude Jacket 4.7 5 10 10
Durable, comfortable and stylish. I purchased both the jacket and the pants in gray and immediately took them on a 1,000 mile adventure on and off road in 100+ degree heat. Despite the substantial construction, the ventilation system worked well and I was able to stay comfortable all week on the road. Thankfully I have not had to test the protection, but the adjustments work well to place the knee and elbow pads where they need to be. I'm 5'9", 175 lbs and purchased the jacket in Large and the pants in 12. The fit is spot on. I have broad shoulders, so was hesitant to purchase a women's fit jacket, but it fits great. July 6, 2015
Great jacket The fit is small, the jacket feels great but the breast pockets are useless on a woman. Have ridden in 50 & 80 degree weather and the jacket workers as advertised, have not been caught in the rain yet so I don't know how dry it will keep me yet. This is by far the best jacket I have owned, hope I don't get to check out the body armor. May 4, 2015
Fits well, looks great, feels great! I bought the Klim Altitude jacket and pants as my textile option and I love this set. The jacket fits well, looks great, has excellent features throughout. I feel protected but it's not bulky at all. I get good air flow when I open the vents, but am toasty warm if I close them all up. I love that it's Gore-tex so I am waterproof and can layer if I want added warmth. I look forward to years of riding with this combo. May 4, 2015
Multiple season jacket In eighty degree weather, if you're not moving, it's getting hot. For Texas summers in triple digits, it might be too much. Although from 20 to 80 degree weather, it is very versatile. We are all year riders. April 8, 2015
pockets are too small - but otherwise very functional Well worth the cost - good fit - did well in its first trial in wet weather. April 6, 2015
Great Jacket! I bought this jacket to replace my old (2010) Kilimanjaro. The Altitude jacket has a more women's specific fit, so it is less bulky and easier to move around in. I bought the large, thinking it would be a little too big for me. Once I added the heated liner and a fleece underneath, it fit perfectly. I have worn this jacket in cold temperatures and in heavy rain. I have not had the chance to test it in warm weather yet. This jacket is definitely comfortable and absolutely waterproof. April 6, 2015
Awesome! Best jacket ever! Built tough, but stylishly for a woman. Vents wiell, tough zippers, waterproof...the padding kept me safe & the jacket only looked scuffed after I hit a deer, hit the gravel, totaled my bike & walked away with only a broken collarbone September 1, 2014
Excellent jacket with some flaws It's a nice jacket. At this price point, I'd say that's a given. I waited to review this until it got a good rain test. It kept me dry in 70 miles of moderately heavy rain. The contents of the waterproof pockets were not so fortunate. Luckily I had my phone in a ziploc bag just in case. This was particularly disappointing since they had apparently waterproof zippers. The upper outside breast pockets are only useful for flat items because they sit right on your chest at it's most protruding vertical level. One of them has a pouch intended for eyeglasses or sunglasses. Fine idea expect the location makes it unusable as the glasses or anything else bulky presses into you on the inside and makes a ridiculous looking protrusion on the outside. Lowering those pockets would make them usable. The back of the neck has a snugger to tighten the jacket around your neck. Good idea, but bad location at the back of the neck makes it a constant hair puller, even when my hair is tucked into my helmet. The inside pockets are made of the mesh liner material, which is a comfortable liner but lousy pocket material. It's too flimsy. Some of the pockets close with a little velcro tab, not secure for small items, thus requiring more ziploc bags. The zippered inside pocket is so flimsy that it requires two hands to operate, one to hold the end of the zipper the other to pull. It's somewhat tailored to a woman's shape, though I find it baggy around the middle. Yes you can adjust the waist nice and small, but I still have all that excess fabric, just as when wearing men's jackets. It's long enough for my 5'11" height, very exciting since tall women's motorcycle gear is almost non-existent. The front zipper closure works very well and is fast to open and close, much better than my Olympia which required an extensive snapping process. The vents are easy to open and close, though not as effective as the Olympia they are MUCH faster and easier to operate. The neck is well-designed and comfortable with an effective way to keep the front tab open without flapping. So overall a terrific jacket with a few flaws. June 3, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Julie M: I live in Brisbane Australia and we have many seasons riding throughout our country. With this jacket i do not have to carry a rain liner or a quilted liner which both add bulk.

The fit is great, the look it great. I can't wait to ride with it on.
Aug 26, 2015
Dan L: GorTex benefits, comfort, and great fit and looks designed for women. Aug 19, 2015
J K: I will not purchase any high end riding gear from you again because it seems there is no Zilla cash offered for this stuff. We spent over $500 bucks on this one item and then found out it is not eligible for the Zilla rewards. I would think there would be more of a reward for the higher end gear than the lower end stuff.

We are very happy with the jacket just feel like we got "bamboozled" on the zilla rewards thing with this purchase.

Richard B: Reputation and prior experience with Klim. Mar 27, 2015
Nathalie J: great protection, great reviews, designed for woman, adjustable, darker color better the the previous gray, waterproof but still goof ventilation... Mar 17, 2015
David S: Long term review and comments by ADVGrrl blogger Leslie convinced me of the quality and fit for my wife. We have been caught by rain when wearing non-Goretex gear once too often, and wound up soaked to the skin before being able to stop and get out the waterproof liner for current gear. Mar 14, 2015
Darlene B: Klim jacket was reccommended by a guy who rode 3 hours in pouring rain and remained dry and comfortable. Looking for a replacement jacket since my BMW jacket let the cold seep in through the long arm zipper. Mar 6, 2015
John F: Happy with the Latitude Misano, so this was an obvious choice for my lovely wife. Oct 21, 2014
Nate C: Looking for better gear for the wife. She thought it was more feminine and I thought with it being Klim it offered better protection than what she currently wears. Apr 17, 2014
David C: Garment had all necessary features and materials, yet obviously styled for women and comfortable to wear on and off the bike. Apr 1, 2014

Charity H asked: Is this a 4 season jacket? When I filter my search results to 4 season it does not appear in the results. However I thought that it was mentioned to be 4 season in one of the videos. Has anyone else used this year round and is it sufficient? Jul 9, 2015

Georgianna W: The Klim I s a substantial goretex shell versus some other types of jackets that have insulated liners. I have only ridden in heat since I just got it. It's completely waterproof, and it's adjustable enough to layer thickly under it or to add heated base layers. I expect to be able to ride in all temps comfortably year round. I prefer this style to the lined type since you don't have to take it off to put your waterproof liner in if it rains. Jul 9, 2015

Dawn B: I just got this jacket and LOVE it! I rode this weekend and it was 90 degrees and all the vents were open...it was fine! Any hotter, I would be hot! The mornings were chilly and I just put an extra layer under the jacket and felt comfortable. Also, it rained all the way home on our last day and I was perfectly dry. Jul 9, 2015
Reply to Dawn Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Galen E: It is certainly waterproof and windproof enough to be all season. For winter, it requires a liner, or some kind of insulation layer, between the jacket and you. I use a winter base layer and either a fleece or an electric jacket or both. Jul 9, 2015
Reply to Galen Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Toni K: Depends on the climate where you live. For cold weather you will need a thermal layer underneath. I live in the deep south with very HOT, humid days and have a separate mesh jacket for those days. But I think it vents so well that for most conditions you will be very comfortable. Jul 9, 2015

Kambra B: I bought this jacket last year when it first came out. There were many things I liked about it when I tried it on, but I returned it because it just didn't quite fit me right. Just telling you that so you know I haven't been riding in it for a year. Having said that, I am 5' 8" and found that the arms were plenty long for me when sitting on the bike. As I said, I returned it so never rode in it, but I did sit on the bike in riding position with the jacket on.

The sleeves are plenty long, and I have long arms. I found the sleeves in the biceps area (at least in the first version of the jacket) to be somewhat bulky and there were no Velcro or snap adjustments to bring in the material. I also found that the wrist area got bulky when I closed the Velcro to fit me since there was a lot of material gathered up there.

Amber D: Thank you Kambra do you know the number of inches from the shoulder seam to the wrist edge? Mar 8, 2015
Kambra B: No, I don't know the length since I returned the jacket. But I have found the RevZilla people to be very helpful when I've called and asked them about tech specs, so I'd say call them--or Klim directly--and ask that question. My husband has several pieces of Klim gear, and he's had good luck asking questions too. The other thing that I have done (obviously based on my earlier answer) is order and try on at home. So long as you don't go out riding in the jacket, there shouldn't be any problem returning it so long as you keep all the packaging if you decide it isn't right. Good luck finding a jacket that works for you! Mar 12, 2015
Amy E: Klim has a size chart on their website. It seems to be accurate for sleeve length. I have size S Altitude jacket; I measured my arms like the chart shows (center of neck to wrist), and got 26-27 in, which matches the sleeve length for a size small. The sleeve length fits me well, but the sleeves on the next size up medium jacket were too long for me. Hope that helps. Mar 6, 2015

Kathleen J: I'm a rider...not a driver and I am also 6 ft tall. For me with my arms reaching out the cuff is at the top of my wrist...arms at my sides it just below my wrist. Personally wish that the sleeve was about 1 inch longer. Mar 7, 2015

Craig S asked: I own a Klim Badlands Pro Jacket for myself and it is quite heavy.(Male size L)
I'd be buying this jacket for my wife and am concerned about the weight. can you tell me weight difference between the 2 jackets please?
Apr 3, 2014

Sherry K: Hello Craig,
The difference in the weight of the Klim jackets:
Badlands is 7 lbs( men's small); Altitude is 4.8 lbs. (women's small). My preference is for the Badlands ( because of the built-in kidney belt, chest protector, pro shell Goretex, better ventilation, and sturdier fabric). It is heavier but the kidney belt takes the weight issue away for me. Unfortunately the small men's size is just too big for me--mostly in the shoulders.. If Klim had this in a men's extra small I would jump at it. I'm 5'2" ( 29" inseam) and 110 lbs. , female, ride my own bikes and I'm looking for an adventure suit for aggressive street riding and some off-roading. I tried the men's small size 28 badlands pants & they fit pretty well-- venting is super, a little baggy in the seat but I like them. Just wish I could find a badlands jacket to go with. The Altitude jacket is nice but I don't think I can live with the very light gray color and I miss the features of the badlands. It is very pretty, however, and certainly a nice jacket , doesn't feel overly heavy, and is comfortable and flexible ( more so than the Badlands). It's a womens version of the Latitude. In a black or dark gray/ black I probably would get it for me personally.
My husband has the men's Latitude jacket & pants , size large and quite happy with his suit.
Hope this helps--- I'll be glad to answer your questions. It's a hard decision for sure.
I do like Revzilla and trust them as well.

Kathleen J: Craig - I don't know the actual weight ...but yes it is on the heavy side. Fewer pockets, better collar design than men's jacket help keep the bulky feel to a minimum. The side zips make it more comfortable when seated. I switched from a Revit because I wanted a one piece waterproof jacket and liked the new armor system as well. Really didn't notice the weight except when mounting/dismounting. Still waiting for the "wet" test. Hope this helps - Kathi Apr 3, 2014

Christian M: The Altitude is much lighter.

For comparison. My Bandlands Pro (male size S ) weighs in at 7 lbs. My wife's Altitude (size S) weighs in at 4lbs.

Mike H: From KLIM's web site:
The shortest answer is no. KLIM does not manufacture final products in the U.S. However, the manufacturing story deserves more than a short answer. Truly understanding the scale of the topic is important.

KLIM manufactures parts of and whole products all over the world. As a technical apparel company with an intense appetite for the absolute best, KLIM sources raw materials and other ingredients from multiple countries (including here in the U.S.). Many of our materials require highly specialized manufacturing that is only done in a few places in the world. For instance, some of our GORE-TEX® laminates originate in different parts of Europe before being shipped to Asia for final finishing. Also, the thread that holds much of our gear together is sourced out of Texas.

In the pursuit of the absolute highest quality in our gear, KLIM products are only made in the best factories in the world. That is the single most important takeaway in any manufacturing discussion.

It’s important to note that just because a product is produced in China, Korea, Vietnam, Sweden, or anywhere else KLIM products are made, doesn’t mean it is cheaper in cost or lower in quality. While brands can and do travel to Asia to find factories that will build for the lowest cost possible, the gains in margins aren’t generally worth the reduction in quality. There is still a lot of truth in, “You get what you pay for.”

There is no easy way to show our customers the effort we take into selecting a factory. But we are very confident our products are produced in the highest quality factories in the world. KLIM’s decision to rely on overseas manufacturing is not based on pricing. It is based on quality first and sustainability thereafter. With all that said KLIM truly wishes we could produce our products here in the United States; however, in the short term, that’s simply not possible.

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements.  Klim sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.
