I bought mine last year so does not have all the improvements for 2016. The main features of the jacket are the same. I have quite a few Klim pants because they offer a tall and I am 6'6'. This is my first jacket. Even though it is not a tall the sleeves are long enough, The jacket is comfortable while providing a strong sense of protection with very sturdy fabric and the latest armor, It's only problem is the weather, Especially riding off road it can be very warm on a hot day--a result of the heavy fabrics that offer so much protection, If I were a much younger rider this would not bother me but as an elderly rider I am bit as tough about dealing with comfort issues. If it is over 75 degrees I wear a lighter jacket but if it is cool or warm this is my favorite of many many jackets.

I own both the Crew Pac and the Nac Pac. Which is better? The answer to that depends on your use. I originally thought that the Nac Pac was too small. However, now that I have one, I can say that it will hold a surprising amount. The key to this is the mid-section where the tool pouch is held. That section expands more than one would think. On my last ride, the weather forecast was for rain. I removed the tool pouch and I put my rain gear, a Klim PowerXross jacket ( Goretex 500d Cordura jacket ), a Revolt pullover ( Goretex wind-proof jacket ) and PowerXross Goretex gloves into a 13l dry bag that fit into the same mid-section where the tool pouch goes. I was surprised, but it fit. I also had both zippered sections stuffed full of stuff like a pair of spare gloves, spare batteries for my GoPro and SPOT, spare memory cards for the GoPro, several Kashi bars, spare ear plugs, helmet / shield cleaning materials, and miscellaneous other items. All of this and I had the 3 liter hydration bladder about half full. It was a tight fit, but it all fit. I love how small the Nac Pac is compared to the Crew Pac. In the late Fall when the morning temps a low and it warms up mid-day, I may elect to use the Crew Pac due to it's larger capacity. That way if I need to remove a layer or my heated gear, I have plenty storage capacity. Also, I recently got back from a 3-day trip with the Crew Pac. I wouldn't have been able to use the Nac Pac. Some soft saddle bags are in my future so that I can use the Nac Pac and carry more weight on the bike instead of me. Once the Nac Pac was on my back, I didn't know it was there. Both the Crew Pac and the Nac Pac sit on your lower back so you don't really feel the weight of either, but riding single track you can feel the Crew Pac's width on your arms. this is not the case with the Nac Pac. When you put it on, it disappears.

This is a great product. I have now worn it several times and it is comfortable and looks great. Would definitely recommend.

I bought these as a backup pair for my Astars leather gloves. I ride a KTM adventure and duo not ride it gingerly off road sections. However, I was surprised these didn't last one week's worth of riding without falling apart. The palms were shredded after only a few days riding. I've owned other Klim gear and these gloves DO NOT meet the standards of their other gear.

I have two problems with fit. With my glasses on it opens up gaps just above my nose causing a place for warm moist air to escape while riding. Causing my shield to fog up and glasses to fog up so bad it is impossible to see. Second the extended piece in front of the nose and mouth have a tendancy to close off inside my helmet causing more hot moist air to fog inside the helmet. That being said I am going to try to cut two small slots in front of my ears to allow my glasses to fit outside just until they have to go over my ears. Over all I am very happy with how warm I stay. I've been riding in 25 degree and above temps. with no problem. At 70 MPH thats what 1 degree wind chill.
