Everything about this jackets says "quality". Unlike most other jackets where you have zip in additional layers to keep you dry, nothing gets through the jacket itself. The material also does not absorb water so the jacket does not get heavier while you ride in the rain. I did not have to try out the D3O protection yet [thankfully] but you hardly notice it while the back protector is larger than in any jacket I had before. It's not cheap but I think it is one of the safest, most comfortable jackets you can get. The Seattle Touratech shop gave me excellent service to make sure I had the right size. I'll be back for more.

I'm only giving this jacket 4 stars because I find it hard to really give anything a "perfect" rating... So...I'm a year-round motorcycle commuter in the PNW and I love this jacket. I'm only writing this since it appears that I may have found another piece of riding gear that actually works. I've gotten really sick of buying sub-par gear, and then having it die an early death (see "Street Cred" below) This jacket is expensive, but I'm telling you...it's worth it if you ride. The materials and construction quality are at least on par with my climbing/mountaineering jackets. I also recently got to test this jacket's wind protection in some pretty cold weather, since my Gerbings jacket failed on me. I was in riding in temperatures in the mid to low 20s, and I was OK with a mid-wieght fleece on underneath. I could have used more, but I didn't feel like I wanted to stop and kill anyone so I must have been OK. Plenty of pockets...more than most of us will need. They are accessible and they work. Again, the quality is apparent when you operate the zippers. The comfort is excellent...but remember...this jacket is for riding. It's shaped for sitting upright with your arms out on the bars. It looks cool, but it's not for hanging out at Starbucks...there's armor in there that bulks it up a little. Let me tell you about the armor: It's the most comfortable stuff I've used. Think Silly Putty...it's soft, then when it takes a shock load it stiffens up to protect you. Google it. It makes the jacket very comfortable and you're not giving up protection. The armor carries a mid-grade impact rating even though it's this soft, weird material. I'm going to replace the armor in my leather jacket with this stuff. Those foam pads in most jackets aren't going to do anything except laugh at you while you're lying in the road bleeding to death. I've never felt like I needed a riding jacket like I feel that I need this one. The kidney belt and overall fit are great too...way better than any other textile jacket I've had. STREET CRED... I've had 80 mile round trip commute for the last 9 years or so. I wear gear out. I kill gear. Literally. Motorcycle gear comes to me to die. Textile pants last two winters if I'm lucky. Washing and replacing the DWR will buy some time...maybe. The "diapers" they put in some pants last a while, but constant use fatigues the material in the diaper liner...then it cracks and leaks. Death. If it can leak and wear out, I've done it. Waterproof boots? Ha! I laugh at the word "waterproof"...they all fatigue and leak after 2-3 years through cracks in the material and rotten stitching. Boot carnage. I've gone through four textile jackets, and I'm on my second Leather jacket that I only wear in the summer. Jackets last longer than pants, but I've popped snaps through rotten and fatigued fabric, destroyed/replaced/destroyed again zippers, and have had more seams rip open due to rotten thread than I can count. I love Gerbing's heated clothing...but I've sent my gloves in for repair twice and my jacket in three times. I don't really consider myself to be hard on gear, but I ride EVERY DAY. Actually, it's depressing now to think that I don't have any fun riding considering the mileage I log...I think I'll stop ranting now. I like my Klim Badlands Pro Jacket, by the way. If you're considering a BMW Rallye jacket or the like, or maybe the current darling of the Enduro-Touring crowd...Rev-It...you should really give the Badlands Pro a look...then don't look back.

I bought the Klim Badlands Jacket to replace my BMW Rally 3 because I like d the idea of having a water proof jacket that provided enough ventilation to wear in the summer. However, the more I wear it the more I miss my Rally 3. With all motorcycle gear, there are four things I ask: Is it comfortable? Does it keep you dry? Does it ventilate (keep you cool)? Will it protect you? The good: -The build of this jacket is first rate. The GORE-TEX Pro-Shell is as rugged and durable as they come. -Robust YKK zippers -Waterproof, I stood out in the rain all day and stayed dry -Seams have been sealed with high grade bonding agents and stitches. The chances of a seam leaking are slim to none. -The jacket also sports an internal kidney belt that is removable. -The vertical zips on the breast pockets are also a good feature and provide easy access. -Sleeve gussets are a great feature at keeping dust and bugs out of your sleeves -Plenty of reflective material The Bad: -Lack of sizing options: If you are close to the in-between sizes that you are probably going to be disappointed. According to the sizing with my whopping 38 inch chest, I should be wearing a medium. However, when I tried on the medium I felt I was swimming in material. The collar what so loose, that rain and wind would have been an issue. I chose to go with the small, which fit well when wearing nothing but t-shirt. However, when wearing extra layers I had to remove the internal chest protectors to make the jacket fit in the chest. -only available in Black or Grey (two colors that won't get you noticed) -Velcro storm flap -Sleeve Collars are tight (trying to get a pair of waterproof gloves with gauntlets under the sleeves can be a task. -Armor, although it has 3-Do armor, it lacks surface area coverage. -No waist adjustment -Not so waterproof pockets (At the end of my rainy day experiment my money and wallet were wet. Guess that's why they include a water proof pouch with the jacket.) How KLIM should fix it: -More sizing options. -Larger Protection pads for the elbows. -Button snaps on the storm flap. -Wider or expandable sleeve collars. -Brighter color combinations. -More waist adjustments. -Wider and arm sleeve adjuster with more Velcro. -Hip expanders. -Two vertical racing stripes so I can look like Austin Vince. Conclusion: Is it comfortable? Not for me. For the money I feel duped for lack of size options. Does it keep you dry? Yes, but keep your sensitive items in the internal pockets using the waterproof pouch. Does it ventilate (keep you cool)? Yes there is plenty of ventilation. Will it protect you? Maybe; providing the size you bought fits you properly and you land on the armor. I'll keep looking.

I recently picked the Badlands Pro suit in large and 34 tall. I', 6 205# with a 31" inseam and a 44" chest. I only give dimensions to give something to compare as you size your own suit. This suit replaces an aerostich roadcrafter one piece in 44L. After my first good day in the suit I think really like the suit. The fit is stellar, the build quality is great. As an emergency medical services worker, I am a huge fan of the chest pad. This is the first jacket I have owned with an integrated chest pad and it is totally unnoticable on the bike. It would be hard to do worse than the roadcrafter (previous era zippers) in the rain, but I look forward to seeing how the suit does in the weather. It feels like it is worth the money which is a hard thing to come by in a jacket at this price.

After wearing leather jackets year round and my North Face rain jacket / pants for bad weather all my life, I finally paid the price for something so fancy. Best decision I have ever made. Rode through Colorado sleet for two hours. Stopped to fill up and noticed my entire left side was coated in rime ice...I never felt it. It feels stiff out of the box, but breaks in quickly (2 week trip). Vents open on 80 degree day feels great, waiting on full summer heat to see how it does. Comfy beyond belief when riding. I told my friend I can't believe I waited this long to buy something so nice.

This is certainly the toughest riding jacket I have yet owned. Great materials. Super attention to detail. Absolutely water-proof! Breaths very well. It has marvelous support and protection, and incorporates (attaches) to the riding pants fairly well. Lots of adjustments for a perfect fit for how you feel or wear that day. Highly recommended but pricey.

Expensive but worth every dollar. This jacket is the single best investment I've made in motorcycling. Comfortable in temps from freezing up to 90 deg f by varying the vents and base layers. Waterproofing has been flawless. If you ride every day, rain or shine, this is the jacket I would highly recommend.
