I just got the new for 2020 Klim Carlsbad jacket. I have an older Carlsbad that I've grabbed whenever the weather is cold or the sky's threatening. It's a very good coat. But there are some features to the new one that make it a much better coat, IMO. They fixed all of my complaints. Many reviewers have complained about the collar. Me too. The new collar works perfectly. For me. ::YMMV:: I suggest you check it out if you're interested because it fits very differently. It seals around my neck better when I want it to, and it doesn't stab me in the neck when it's opened up a bit. The vent zippers are much better. They've used waterproof zippers instead of having flaps over the old style zips. Those flaps restricted the air flow thru the openings quite a bit. These new openings aren't huge, they don't spread themselves wide open, but they flow air much better. Like the old coat, you can reach all front and back vent's zips easily, without needing to stop and take the coat off. And the vents on the sleeves work WAAAY better! The 2 way zips open from the elbow down to the cuff, or up from the cuff to your elbow. They open wide!!! One more big difference- both my old Carlsbad and my new one are size MED. The new one is cut much looser. I would say it's almost 1/2 size larger. It's a generous fit, much more comfortable than my old one. I think they cut it bigger because of the change from Level 1 D30 armor to Level 2 throughout. Check one out, it's a very different coat, significant improvements. But before you ride with it, make sure you do the standard Klim break-in proceedure: pull out the armor and throw it in the dryer (on air only) with a couple tennis shoes. For an hour. Or longer.
