Bang for the Buck

I am a 10K mile per year year-round long distance commuter in the UK, where bad weather and poor visibility are often the norms.
Klim makes a great motorcycle jacket. The materials are top shelf and the quality, fit and finish are excellent. I am 6'1.5" and 205# and the large fits just right (although, if I routinely wore bulky insulating garments, I might go a size bigger). I prefer a trimmer fit as the armor is always where it needs to be for protection.
The jacket is comfortable and it vents reasonably well. There are plenty of pockets to lose your keys in, some of which are waterproof. The D3O armor is soft and the shape and placement of the panels is very good.
The Hi-vis jacket is even smarter looking in person than on the website. I would say the collar is the weak point. It is not particularly comfortable or plush and seems to hit my Adam's apple when it is completely fastened up. But it works to exclude the wind perfectly - whether on my naked bike or my GS.
No jacket costing the better part of $1K can be rated a bargain or good bang for the buck. There are plenty of $300 jackets or used jackets on e-bay that will also protect you. But if you have the cash and ride a lot through every kind of weather, the Klim Badlands Pro hits its mark really well. I would certainly recommend it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I like the look and the fit. The flap covering the laces is a pain when donning and doffing the boots. I havehonestly thought of cutting it off. The comfort is good and the reltively unpadded footbed is similar to any other moto boots, most similar to my Sidi race boots.
Yes, I recommend this product.

My son is a tall, thin 7-1/2 and wears size 128 (Euro size 7-8). This is a fitted jacket so, unfortunately, buying it too large in anticipation of growth will only mean that the armor is no longer properly centered. He and I both love the features and styling. It is just as nice as any adult jacket (although it will be a while before he will be using the cell phone pocket).
I will have a used size 128 in about 12 months ...
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable, Protective
Cons Pricey
Yes, I recommend this product.
