This simple design isn’t hard to fit. You can just choose the same size as the jacket you wear. Aaron and I both found the fit to be appropriate in the sizes we normally wear (Medium and XL). Aaron’s pictured in the gray wind shirt and I’m wearing the black.

Our Two Cents
This new Klim Inversion jacket, functionally, is kind of the like the popular Zerpyr Wind Shirt by Klim, but it is a bit more substantial, functional and a bit more “stand alone” looking.
The fabric is the Gore Windstopper material that will work great under a mesh jacket or perf leather jacket. Using a jacket like this under a vented jacket will help you get a wider usable temp range out of the jacket.
The fabric here is a bit thicker and has a stretch quality to it making it very easy to move in… ideal for athletic endeavors. Also, the material feels a bit like neoprene and does not wrinkle. You could wear this jacket for all sorts of sports or casual wear and it would look great.
The jacket has four pockets… two on the chest and two lower hand warmer pockets. And one of the upper pockets has a grommet inside to let you pass your headphones through. There is one final pocket on one of the biceps (mostly for styling I think).
There is a drawstring in the lower hem that lets you snug it down to keep the drafts out. The collar has a nice fleecy liner. Zips are provided in the arm pits to help it vent a bit if you feel warm. Overall, a really nice, high-end looking sport jackets suitable for all kinds of activities, both sport and leisure. :: Paul, 02-02-18
