The pocket behind the back protector is for a water bladder.

Thanks yeti

Great. Now it's not a secret any more.

Honestly it's not so secret of a location. I spotted it right away when I opened up the jacket and didn't think it was the secret pocket.

After looking around awhile and not seeing anything else I asked where it was...

Pretty sure nobody here wants to check out my chest. At least I hope not!

It does fit quite a bit better than my old gear, that was a much bulkier bit of kit.

I came close to waiting for it, but I'm not that patient. Plus I'm not sure I really wanted the hi viz...

I'm starting to dislike this online shopping thing. I am still on the fence with respect to the size of the jacket. And the pickets are starting to be a pain in the a$$. I am going to have to get a second jacket so I can properly compare the Medium and the Large.

Any of you fine folks like to layer under the BP when it's nippy out? When I wear a fleece the Large fit is rather good but I can't help but wonder what the medium would feel like. The shorter sleeves of the Med would also be a plus.

Just pulled the trigger. I'm currently 6'2" and 180lbs with a 33" waist. My weight can vary from 170lbs, to around 215lbs and up to 36" waist.

I went with a Lg jacket and 36t on the pants. I ride a naked bike, so zero wind/rain protection when it's chilly, but I'm sure the BP will deliver there, what I'm really worried about is the summer. A July afternoon in southern Georgia is just something that has to be experienced first hand.

Hopefully with the venting and proper base layer in place, I can shuffle my Rev'it Airwave set on to the next lucky hoon..

I have ridden with mine from 30-110 degrees now. Cold temps I wear a heated liner under, hot I wear an evaporating vest with vents closed on the jacket. I've been able to stay comfortable and really like the gear.

Online Sizing

Hey Darkflames.

Thats the downside to online shopping. I measured again and again, and read a lot about KLIM sizing before purchasing. Just purchased jacket and pants. Im 5'9" with a 43" chest and 34" waist. By the KLIM chart I should have gone 32R pants, but read online just stick with your measurements as the pants size.

Got the 34R pants and large jacket, glad I did, wouldn't be able to fit in the pants if I went smaller although the size chart says 32 fits up to 37inch. I smell B.S. theres no way the smaller size would fit 37" im snug in the 34". The jacket is good size, sleeve wise I would prefer the medium but I wouldn't have been able to do it up around chest.

Good luck.

Yeah, I need to accept the fact that I'm very picky (anal retentive really) and only need to try a medium to confirm that the large is the right choice.

Regarding the trousers, I typically wear size 34ish pants and found the 36 BP trousers to fit great. The 35-41 range for that size actually makes sense with the adjustment available. One has to realize the difference between pant size and waist measurement. Thanks to the good people at the Guinness brewery, my waist measurement is approximately 38.... Right in the middle of the range for the size 36 trousers.

Ii just got my Badlands set last week. I need to go through this thread and figure out all the pockets, vents and such. I do like this stuff more than the Latitude. I'm 5' 10" about 200 and the XL jackets and 36R pants fits great. Not cold enough for the pants but I got a few hundred miles on the jacket. So far, I'm a happy camper....
