I bought the Adventure because I though it would impress the guys at Starbucks more.

Seriously, only BMW riders in BMW-approved gear go to Starbucks. I think it's a law or something.

I mean, are you even allowed to sit on a BMW motorcycle without having at least three articles of BMW-branded clothing, plus the BMW-logo keyring?

I got the Badlands, more suited for the riding I do than the Adventure.
The Badlands vents well and it is amazingly dry in the rain. It is not light weight
putting it on reminds be of my Dry Suit diving days.

Wish mine was dry in the rain. I have worn it twice in the rain and got wet both times . Love it otherwise. Vents great and fits good.

Call Klim and they will walk you thru the way to clean the jacket and dry it to resell the material against rain! Their customer service is excellent

What do you do regarding hydration and the Badlands??

Have you come up with a better way to use a bladder in the jacket?

The Adventure suit was basically built by KLIM for Dakar racers-you can carry pretty much everything you might need in its pockets. There are other design implementations that for the basic guy who rides a bike are probably overkill.

For me, the Badlands Pro is great. I bought mine one size up. I like the loose fit and it flows more air. And, I have more room for layers...

Good luck on your choice.

Steve

I sling my Camelbak over my shoulders and thread the hose underneath a strap. Works perfectly for me! Zero need to have a built in space for a reservoir....

YMMV of course.

Pretty much this. Although I have actually worn it under the jacket in really hot weather as the shoulder straps cut off air flow.

Wet from the shoulder to the elbow on both sides in the front and a spot left of center about halfway down the front. Did get some collar leakage on a third ride, but that was in a thunderstorm. I didn't expect to stay dry in that. I am going to call Klim and see what they say cause I still like the jacket.

Badlands or Adventure? On the Badlands did you cinch the neck drawstring close to your neck? Just wondering...
