This is a pretty basic piece of gear, but it works well for my needs. It's thin enough that it goes up under my chin curtain and seals the gap between my collar and helmet. The elastic on the ends allows it to stay in place over my nose and mouth or just my mouth to minimize fogging of my facesheild. It blocks the wind and adds some warmth, but if you're looking for something really warm you should probably look at one of Kilm's balaclavas.

This jacket is rock solid. Very well made with high quality materials. I was one of the first in the country to get a new 2012 version with the softer Misano Cordura material in the body and collar. This material is much softer than the original material which really does makes the whole jacket more flexible. The softer material also makes the collar much more comfortable.
I've been skiing all of my life so I know a little bit about staying warm and dry. I wear an uninsulated Gore-Tex powder jacket and pants so I can customize the base layers to suit the weather conditions. The Klim Latitidue jacket gives me the same freedom on my bike.
I'm 6' tall and weigh about 190 pounds. The large fits me well in the chest with a T-shrit and gives me enough room for insulated base layers. It's a little loose in the waist, but the velcro belt has plenty of room for adjustment. The armor hits me in all the right places and seems to disappear entirely when the jacket is zipped. My one complaint is about the sleeves, which are about an inch longer than I would like them to be.
There are zippers on both sides that allow you to expand the bottom to help eliminate bunching when you're seated on the bike. The vents in the upper arm and the armpit vents allow plenty of air to flow when it gets a bit warm in the afternoons. I doubt this jacket will be good for summer riding, but it's going to work great for spring/fall/winter. I'm confident that I can add layers and go down as cold as I'd want to ride the bike.
