Klim Badlands Jacket


Product Description

An Adventure Riding Jacket worthy of the most ambitious destinations and unpredictable conditions along the way, The Badlands Jacket from Klim is the combination of the latest design, fit and material technologies available to the premium adventure motorcycle market. Inspired by rides that start, go through and end anywhere (or never end at all) the Badlands Jacket is ultimate ADV performance. Focused on providing a sleek, comfortable fit from durable-yet-comfortable fabrics, the all-new Badlands Jacket delivers an onslaught of full-tech D3O armor, guaranteed to keep you dry GORE-TEX fabrics and a massively intelligent layout of cargo, ventilation, reflective and abrasion-resistant systems.

* All dyed/pigmented fabrics will fade under UV exposure (sunlight) over time. Klim fabrics are highly UV resistant, but Hi-Vis fabrics will fade at a faster rate than normal fabrics under the same UV exposure. This is a normal property of all Hi-Vis pigments/fabrics and is not considered a manufacturer defect.

  1. Incredibly well thought out jacket

    Posted by Mark on Mar 22nd 2017

    I was initially hesitant to pull the trigger and buy this jacket because of cost, but when weighed against my entry-level jacket (features, feel, design, durability, etc.) it was a no-brainer; especially for the longer trips I have planned this summer (3 trips ranging from 1500mi to 4000mi). So far I have used this jacket at highway speeds in conditions ranging from very windy 40F to calm high 60s. It definitely easily functions in this temp range with only a t-shirt on. I will reserve comment for my first deluge- certain to hit this spring- and some of the cooler mountain morning, and any hotter summer days out west. However, based on how it feels so far, it appears to have a great deal of flexibility. It just plain feels like it could withstand anything and, while I hope I never have to find out, I feel secure wearing it- (the armor rides in the right places with straps secured). Better than anything I have owned so far.
