I have had both as well. KLIM all the way. Waterproof Gore TEx Pro on the outside of the jacket. Lots of venting and you don’t have to stop and put the liners in on the BMW jacket that is always a pain in the ass.
I transitioned from BMW and some other friends to Klim several years ago I don’t think I’ll ever go back. BMW generally offers very high-quality but the liner thing is a big deal. The first time you get caught in a cold rain without your liner and you have to stop on the side of the road to put it in, you know you made a mistake. With the Klim you just layer up underneath and you never have to worry about the rain. I have worn my Klim ‘latitude’ in different parts of the world and in temperatures ranging from 30° to 100 Fahrenheit and have been very satisfied with its performance.
Hi. I have the BMW Street Guard suit which is waterproof and great and the BMW Airflow suit that I use in the Sumer with a waterproof jacket and pants. If what you want is to have only one jacket and pants I will recomend the Klim latitude. The jacket that I have used a couple of times is 100% waterproof and confortable.
My 44 short equal to size 27, BMW Streetguard suit fits right to me. I learned to buy only short sizes. In KLIM I use pants size 36x30. In BMW I use 38x30. You are right. Shopping is most of the funI bought a BMW EnduroGuard jacket. I returned it after a few weeks as the fit just wasn’t right. The shoulder padding and elbow padding wasn’t in the right spots for me and didn’t feel comfortable. Also it is European sizing and the zipper is on the opposite side as the Klim. Evidently our fellow riders in Europe are in much better shape as they are too tapered for me and my well earned figure! Good luck and the shopping is most of the fun!
