I was torn between this and the Latitude. This seems to have a little bit better protection but I wish it would have had the collar and drop seat of the Latitude. I think I'll still be happy with it.

Perfect Jacket for both cruiser and sport bike duty.

Great jacket.
Christopher S on Mar 2, 2016
Great winter jacket. Plus has good zip vents for slightly less cold days. I've taken it out on 30 degree Fahrenheit days and stayed plenty warm and dry. (I had layers) ... my fingers however... I got the grey version. Its a little more "high vis"
Mitch R on Jan 26, 2016
Good design and integration of Gore-Tex, for fall and spring riding, may end up using it in Summer as well base on comments from other riders. Protection capability is also a significant factor. Although on the higher scale of cost, I may just end up using two jackets instead of three, or maybe just one most of the time.
Philip C on Sep 23, 2015
Perfect Jacket for sport touring, Gore-Tex, not a long jacket, included back protector and plenty of storage pockets.
Daniel G on Aug 3, 2015
It has never made sense to me to skrimp on riding gear, regardless of how much or how long one rides. I want the best protection possible with the most versitility. I look forward to when fully inflated jackets and pants make their way into the consumer market.
Christopher B on Jun 16, 2015
I purchased the Klim Latitude pants for 2 reasons. 1 - I have Klim snowmobile wear and it is the best riding gear I have ever owned. 2 - the 2015 Klim jackets and pants of different models (Apex jacket, Latitude pants for me) will connect together with a common zipper system. Please note they must be 2015 or new releases, prior years may or may not be compatible.

COLLAR! Can current owners please comment on the comfort of collar?
Ryan N on Jan 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It feels a bit constricting at first when I'm standing around. But once I'm on the bike and riding, I don't notice it. And it does a great job of keeping out wind and water.
I am 6' tall with a 42" chest and 34" sleeve. A 34-36" sleeve is "normal" for these measurements. The sizing chart, however, says a Large with 42-44" chest has a 31-32" sleeve which seems to be at least 2-3" too short for a 6' man with a 42" chest. Does anyone have similar measurements to mine and did the Large coat seem to have sleeves that were too short ....meaning a gap between a non-gauntlet glove and the coat sleeve? the 31-32" sleeve found in the Large size correct or is it longer? Thank you. Chuck in Montana
Chuck F on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am a similar size to you and have a real problem with the Klim sizing. I tried this jacket in the medium and large. Sleeves fit on the large but the body was huge. Medium fit in the biody but sleeves were too short. A shame as it's an awesome jacket.
Not really a question, but wanted everyone to know that while the Apex jacket may have been "designed for torrent pant integration" as reported in the description (it works great wit the Torrent pants), it also zips to the new Badlands pants just fine. Also, the gray Apex matches the gray on the Badlands pants perfectly. ?
Gregory L on Jul 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the info! Do you mean that the grey jacket here matches the grey lateral and seat portion of the badlands pants? The jacket displays almost completely white on my computer screen... I have the gray badlands pants, and was thinking of buying this jacket. Are you happy with the badlands pants and Apex jacket combination?
One reviewer felt strongly that the external zippers were a design that allow air and water leaking. Are other folks finding this to be a problem? Very interested in this jacket but for $800 want something very wind and water proof. thanks for any more opinions on zippers.
William L on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi William,
I have owned this jacket for a while and worn it on my daily 120km commute to work. I have been through torrential rain more times than I like and have had no water in through the zippers. I have had water come in through the neck as the jacket is a size to big for me and I can't get a good seal around my neck. I can say it is totally waterproof, especially if you get the right size.
Cheers, Nick
How does this fair in warmer weather?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought this n the beginning of August here in PA. I will say that with the vents open it is find up to about 85 if you keep moving. It's really humid here in the summer so that plays into it. When it was in the upper 80s and 90s I usually switched over to my Alpinestars Viper AST, especially if I was going to be in a lot of stop and go.

I did however do a ride in the 90s with this on, an Under Armor heat gear shirt, and an Alpinestars chest and back armor piece. I was sweating like crazy but it wasn't unbearable as long as I was moving. For this coming summer I'm buying the Klim induction jacket for the super hot days.

I've been using the Apex all fall and still riding now and it's fantastic in these temps. When it's down in the mid thirties with all the vents closed and fleece underneath I'm just fine. I ride dual sports with no screens.

Hope this helps you out.
How cold is this jacket good for without heated gear?
Nick S on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I was OK at 52 degrees on my 27 mile commute with speeds up to 50mph with just a T-shirt on. If it had been too much longer, I'd have been chilled. Next morning I put on the heated jacket liner and did not even have to turn it on at about the same temps. So, with some light layering you should be good into the 40's unless you are on a long ride.
Question on sizing

Using the Klim size chart, my actual sleeve measurement is 32" and chest is 38".
Height 6', weight 165lbs
That puts me in the Large for sleeve length and Medium for chest.
I would typically just wear a shirt and/or t-shirt underneath.

I like good sleeve coverage so wondering if a large will be problematic/too baggy in the chest, especially with the vents open ?
William W on Sep 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm 32" sleeve, 40" chest, 5'10" height, 168lbs. Sleeve length is exactly at hand/wrist intersection in upright riding position on BMW R1200GS. Just purchased the jacket a few weeks ago and did first ride in it, a 450 mile tour last weekend on North Cascades hwy through Eastern WA and then back over Stevens Pass to Seattle. Weather ranged from sun to hail, averaged about 60 degrees. Unless it dipped under 45 degrees at altitude, under the jacket I was in a basic UnderArmour athletic long sleeved workout shirt and totally comfortable. Never used the vents. Big fan of Klim, use all their gear offroad, but this is my first on-road apparel purchase. I can emphatically say that the jacket is unbelievable. Weather protection is bomber but not at the sacrifice of riding comfort. 3.5 season jacket if you layer underneath, which I had plenty of room to do. A note: when you get the jacket and try it on, it might seem like the elbow armor is awkward. But in riding position (at least mine), it is totally comfortable.
What pants zipper connect to this jacket? I know the KLIM Torrent & Badlands have been mentioned, but are there others or any types by other manufacturers?
Michael T on Sep 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the Klim Latitude pants. Their look, construction and zipper are all perfect matches for the Apex. I've never found it necessary to zip them together...perhaps it would provide a little less movement in a crash, but it's not necessary to stay dry inside.
When is the Apex due to be released?
