Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Vis Badlands... Great Jacket I own a lot of motorcycle jackets (over ten) from leather to textile and the Klim Badlands is the most versatile, the most comfortable and the best one of them all. I own a couple of Harley's, a cruiser and a touring. I own a dual sport Suzuki for adventure touring and a Honda dirt bike. I average over 30,000 km a year riding. I have over years riding experience and would not hesitate to recommend the Klim Badlands Jacket to anyone. Yes it is expensive but as in most products you get what you pay for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Protection and waterproof as advertised. I purchased the Badlands Pro jacket and pants for the 2015 Motorcylist Magazine / Edelweiss adventure bike comparison through Austria, Croatia and Slovenia late August. The gear is very well made and you feel protected. I like that the badlands has chest armour - one of the few jacket options that does. Temp wise the outfit does well with the right layers in anything up to 30degrees - then you need mesh unless you're not ever stuck at low speed. I'm tall and fit - so it's very hard to find gear that has long enough arms that the body isn't made for a 38 waste vs my 32 - but I'm able to tighten it up with the kidney belt which is a great feature. Wearing this gear isn't the most flattering as it's a boxy cut - but it's very practical and makes layering for the cold easy. I've only been caught in about 4 hours of rain with it so far - but I've stayed bone dry. Overall it's a top quality outfit - and while expensive, you get what you paid for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from High quality jacket Although this jacket is the very high quality that you'd expect,it really only performs in cool or bad weather.When riding in temps above 23C I find it too warm.The arm vents don't perform as I would like them to.My bike has a full fairing,so that may be a factor.I really like the fit and body protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket I purchased this jacket, along with the corresponding pants, in March 2015. Have ridden a total of 5,500 km so far and am really impressed with the outfit as far as fit, weather protection, quality of materials and durability. The jacket is heavy and feels substantial when worn. The protection materials used, along with every aspect of the construction, are high quality. There are numerous pockets and vents and the whole thing has a feeling of purposeful design. I use it with a Klim Agressor base layer and that combination makes for comfortable riding from 10 - 30c. There are enough vents on the jacket to allow for decent air flow, while moving, at the upper end of the temperature range. Overall, a superb piece of kit. Yes it's expensive, but definitely has the quality to back that up and I can't imagine having to replace it for many years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice jacket so far Love all the storage and te DVO padding. Well thought out jacket with tons of ventilation. The upper arm vents tend to "grab" wind when closed. Also the material behind shoulders is thin and will not stand up to a crash like I was hoping. All the material is really strong except the little strip over your shoulder blade. I'd have thought Klim would have this covered but apparently not. The key is don't crash. But if you do this coat might not be for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great service! This jacket is exactly what you would expect it to be, the best. I ordered a medium first and it fit snug so I returned it for a large. The return was fast and easy and money refund was processed to my card quickly. I am 100% satisfied. Note: I'm 5'9" with a muscular build 18" arms. The size chart calls for a medium but if you are built go right to the large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from He ain't heavy he's my jacket! I new what I was buying and love the jacket and its features. It is way cheaper than the new one and I think much brighter. I bought this jacket for its features and the protection it gives.
