Gear Review, Klim Marrakesh

So, I had this great Klim jacket and a critter got to it during the winter in my garage. I was upset because it was a great jacket with every feature and it was mesh for hot weather, but it had a gore tex liner jacket. It was perfect.

Enter the Klim Marrakesh. The new breed of warm weather jacket. Essentially, it is a miracle. The Marrakesh is a new type of 3000 Denier Nylon. It is bulletproof... and air flows directly through it... but it is not a mesh!

It is a layered fabric... it also has the new G30 Armor. Basically, you cant see it, cant feel it and if you crash in it it stiffens and protects from fracture not just road rash and soft tissue injuries. It is shock absorbing.

Also for you cruiser riders, it comes in black and has 3M retroreflective. In other words it doesnt look reflective but when light hits it it glows like rudolphs nose.

The jacket is even water resistant in a shower... the bad news is... no rain liner. Luckily my rain liner for my older Klim jacket is still good, so the jacket is water proof in a hurricane.

Pretty sweet. it comes in black for the cruiser types too.
pbryon and scorpion46 like this.

How would you rate the air flow?

I'm not short...I'm size-manageable.

They recommend their induction jacket for really hot weather.

if you hold the jacket up to light, you see through it. its really good. You have to keep air moving, like any jacket. The light weight and airflow are unmatched.

sorry, I have the other Klim summer jacket not the induction. I have a firstgear mesh jacket already, Im hoping the Klim out performs it.
