My previous jacket was a grey BMW Boulder, and I can't say that it was cooler than the black Klim because of the light color, but rather because it's a lighter material. My 0.02. I love the Badlands jacket and pants so far! Not sure if you have paid a visit to Dual Sport Plus yet, but they do carry the Klim gear (dualsportplus.com).

NB: Hope everything is fine back home (TO) with Sandy around the corner.
Thanks!

I ended up getting the badlands in black (which goes nicely with the traverse pants) in early June. Love the jacket, didn't find it terribly hot this past summer. I thoroughly tested it in the Ontario rain this week
