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
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.Apr 3, 2014
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 - KathiApr 3, 2014
