Klím Induction Jacket

Post by Stew » Thu Sep 13, 2018 6:31 pm



I have today off and was out running a couple errands on the bike, the local motorcycle shop, Cycle Barn, is just right there so why not stop in to kill a few minutes.

$289.10 later I was riding out wearing my new riding jacket. I was only going in to look at some warm weather gloves, my current pair is getting a little worn so I was being Mr. Smart rider and planning ahead :geek:. I was so smart that my smartness only cost me a little less than 300 dollars haha.

At any rate, I am really liking this jacket. It was on the 30% off clearance rack since it's last years model, originally $349.99 marked down to $264.99 plus tax of course. It breathes really well for such a sturdy, well built garment, it has D3O elbow, shoulder and back armor. And it is replacing my windbreaker jacket, hi-viz vest and elbow guards so suiting up is much easier now PLUS I'm better protected to boot.

I didn't realize how well my old windbreaker was doing its job at breaking the wind, I can tell I will be way more comfortable at hotter temps with this new jacket since the airflow through the gray mesh areas is so good. Very glad I talked myself into it.

The new jacket:







What it's replacing:

For a hi-vis jacket I prefer orange rather than yellow. To me, the orange stands out better on my red GL1500, but then again I have some jackets of each. But that will larn you, fancy walking in to a MC shop not expecting to buy something else?

Lol yeah I should’ve know better. I don’t think I’ve ever seen orange hi-viz stuff in stock, heck they don’t have much in the yellow for that matter - everything seems to be all black and grays. That’s what the new model jacket that’s replacing the old model I bought is like, black and gray. I think my next favorite hi-viz color is green, but again you’d have to order something in with that color, I never see it in stock.

the Highest Visibility is the Lime Green/Yellow jackets with the highly reflective stripes on them.

that is what I always buy, much brighter, and more visible down the road at night than the Orange ones.
