Revzilla has the new Badlands Pro Hi-Viz jacket on their website. It's not in stock yet. Says "Expected to ship this Summer." That could be May. That could be August.

Just checked with Allee at Klim - the only change to the Hi-Viz is the colour.

Stated it will be in store mid March to April.

I think the BMW armor is a proprietary D3O facsimile. It's soft when warm and hardens on impact like the D3O.

The Airshell may be a summer jacket for folks in Maine, but it was too warm for AZ summers. The best summer jacket with complete armor is the BMW Venting Machine or the Venting Jacket which replaced it last year.

Looks like a regular snow parka and not a moto jacket.

I like it.. but not enough to switch from my current Adventure jacket.. probably would if they would move the bladder pocket to the outside.

Ordered one of these yesterday from Revzilla. I think I'm in between a Large and XL. The size guide says Large so let's see how it fits. Everything else I have is XL for the top. I have seen a lot of people between L and XL move to another jacket.

I'm hoping it works out as I really like the features of this jacket. I'll post my findings for those in the same pickle as myself.

Whats your chest size and sleave length. I am about to pull the same trigger and I think I am in between L and XL too. (BTW I am 43 chest and I have long arms just a tad over 32... the way revzilla says to measure arms. I am 6'3" and 190)

Pants are even a worse decision. 34 or 36??? I wear 34 jean/dress pants, but have read that the waist is snug. I also don't want the armor floating around.

Living in Canada, there is no purchase option that has free shipping and returns. Living in Newfoundland, give no option for trying on at a local retailer. They are making this difficult to chose and not be stuck with a bunch of additional costs if I pick wrong.

I'm a 44 chest and 31 inch sleeve. I'm built like a Pro linebacker that retired 10 years ago. So ya... Typical American guy build not euro build.

I wear 34 jeans but have thick legs and can leg press my motorcycles weight easily. I tried on the BMW Ralley 3 pants once and just laughed. I felt like Ross on friends with the leather pants episode.

So we will see how the KLIM fits.

Iwear a 36x34 in jeans and the 36 Long pants fits me perfectly. If anything, they're a tad baggy which is nice for a thin layer underneath if needed. The waist is definitely not snug.

I got one last weekend, Adventure designs was selling them $180 off I am 215 6'3" 45 chest 34-35 arms and went with the XL on their advice to allow for my heated layer. Hope it fits.

Pulled the trigger on the L jacket and 34 Tall pants (6'3" 190lbs). Also hoping they fit .

Which colors did you guys go with. I went gray. Although I think I like the black better, I think the gray has some contrasting light/dark to it, which is more visible. My luck with Hiz Viz in the past has been a faded ugly mess after awhile and I wanted to avoid that (not to mention I have no idea when we will see the Hi Viz get in stock).

I have the gray and I like them. I have 46" chest and 36" waist and an XL jacket and 36 pant in the Badlands fit fine, although the pants are on the loose side. I got a set of the Klim suspenders and like them.
