                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mesh Jacket for Abrasion & Tear Resistance I own the older version 2015/16, that comes with a full sleeve -zip out, water & wind resistant liner. The newer 2018 version has a "Breathable moisture-wicking internal mesh comfort liner". It's a toss up which one's the better. If it rains, you'll be glad you had the rain liner. For day to day dry use, the comfort liner is better as the rain liner does not breath very well. The older version does well in plus 25 Celsius Vancouver weather. I'm not sure the abrasion resistance Karbonite mesh is 750% stronger than polyester mesh. I'ts definitely better than any other mesh jacket i.e. I compared with my buddies Scorpion Mesh or a Joe Rocket textile & mesh jacket. The main difference with the 2017 & newer Induction models is there's more mesh panel surface area. I'm pretty sure the same tear-resistant mil-spec Klim Karbonite™ nylon mesh with "Rhino-Stitch™ construction" is used. It 's heavy duty thread that joins the panels together. The old D30 armour works very well & stays flexible in cooler weather. The new D3O® LP1 looks more breathable mainly because all pads are now vented. The new honey comb pattern also lightens the weight of the pads. A small improvement, but I'm sure it improves air flow. The old jacket did not have articulated arms or stretch mesh in the elbows & shoulders. Overall, a lot of small improvements that make this a much better Jacket. I would definitely buy the new Induction jacket if I didn't already own the previous version. My old one is so durable, I doubt it'll need replacing anytime soon.

                  Rated 4 out of 5 by from Preliminary Review: Feedback on size Freezing cold and piles of snow so I can't provide a full review yet :) But wanted to provide feedback on sizing to help with your purchase. The Induction jacket appears to be sized smaller than other Klim gear. I have a Latitude jacket in Large: it fits with room to spare to allow layering. I also have a Klim Forecast gortex shell in XL which I purposely bought in a larger size so I could wear it over other gear. The Induction jacket in Large was way too small and had to be returned for an XL. FYI: my Forecast shell in XL will fit OVER the XL Induction jacket giving me a water proof layer. Otherwise, the Induction jacket is typically Klim: solid, well constructed, weighty. It is a much more robust "air flow" jacket than those typically provided by other manufacturers. It replaces a light & thin "air flow" jacket from another manufacturer which left me feeling underprotected (but cool in hot weather).

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great jacket for hot weather I purchased this jacket knowing full well what summers are like in Ontario, and I have to say I don't regret my decision at all. I purchased a small sized jacket, as I'm not overly big (5'4", 140Lbs) and it's form fitting. Not too tight, but not baggy. The armor pads are well placed on the back and shoulders, and the pads on the forearms cover from wrist to elbow. The adjustable straps on the arms aren't overly helpful, but as I have short arms it's not likely an issue for your average person. The jacket has plenty of pocket space: two front pockets, an outside breast pocket on the left, an inside breast pocket on the right, and a pocket on the left forearm. Now the most important part: even riding in this years 40 degree weather I've been very comfortable when riding at city speeds. The light mesh of the jacket really feels like you're hardly wearing anything, although the back does get a bit hot with the armor pad. The only down-side would be the lack of a liner. If you purchase this jacket you'll need to either layer up when it gets colder out, or have a second jacket as this one will not offer you much in the way of warmth. Also keep in mind that, because both the inside and the outside are essentially pure mesh, you're not going to get any rain protection from the jacket alone.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Air Flow This jacket is awesome. I feel very safe wearing it. It does a great job of flowing air once you get moving. My only small complaint would be that it is a little heavier and bulkier than I was expecting, but that is what you get for ultimate safety. If it were flimsier, then it would not offer the same protection. The sleeve cuffs are especially heavy and thick, and stiff, but maybe after it gets broken in a bit more it will relax a bit. Overall, very happy with it, would buy it again in a heartbeat.

                  Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket but fits small. This is my fifth Klim jacket and the only large that didn't fit me. The arms and chest were too tight. Therefore when you order go up one size. The return to Fortnine was easy and fast as usual.

                  Does this jacket still come with a water proof/ wind proof liner

                  Asked by: Mark sled
                  There is no windproof/waterproof liner included with the jacket.
