The chest sizes listed in the chart below are from Klim’s chart and I’ve double checked the actual jackets against the chart and it is accurate. But be careful… while the size Large is exactly what you’d expect with a 44 max chest, the smaller sizes are a bit smaller than normal and the bigger sizes are bigger than normal. For example, a men’s size Medium usually is styled with a 42 max chest and Klim’s medium is a 40” max chest. Same goes for larger sizes… an XXL is typically a 48” max chest, but Klim’s is a 52” max chest.
Given the variation from “normal” for smaller and larger sizes, I’d highly recommend you measure yourself and/or measure a jacket that fits you well (take the link below on how to do that). Then choose a jacket that is big enough for your chest. It’s generally OK if the jacket is a bit bigger than your measured chest, especially in a mesh style since the wind blows right through (in solid textile jackets, being oversize is a bit more of a problem due to possible ballooning at speed). Also, an inch or two of room will be welcome if you want to layer under the jacket. Belly sizes are generous, but if you have a belly, you’ll want to make sure the jacket size you choose will accommodate your belly sizes as well.
Overall sleeve and torso lengths are generous and will work for most average height or taller riders. Those of shorter stature may find the sleeve and torso lengths to be longer than ideal.

Our Two Cents
Some people just don’t like the “feel” of traditional protective motorcycle jackets… they find them to be more restrictive and stiff than they’d like. If that is you, then read on… you’ve found your dream jacket! The Klim Marrakesh is a comfortable jacket made of a stretch Cordura. It moves with you but doesn’t squeeze!TOP 3 BENEFITS
- COMFORTABLE IN WIDE RANGE OF WARMER ENVIRONMENTS WITH EXTREME BREATHABILITY
- RIDE COMFORTABLE WITH PERFECT BALANCE OF MATERIALS
- MOST VERSATILE NON-GORE KLIM MOTORCYCLE JACKET
The material flows some air…not like a true mesh jacket but its not windproof like an ordinary textile jacket either. For those who are “fair weather riders”, this one will be perfect. It will be ideal for moderate temps… anything from cool to very warm I’d say. The two pockets on the chest have mesh liners so those can double as zip vents to let in a bit more air when it warms up.
The shell material used in this jacket is fairly thick and stretchy, so it really moves with you and doesn’t constrict at all. We have some other jackets in our store that utilize the stretch Cordura material in this jacket, but those are cut more sporty and fit more snugly. This one is more meant to fit more casually and that’s what makes this one unique. And the overall styling is very neutral, so nearly any type of rider could feel comfortable wearing this one.
The armor in the jacket is all CE level 1 D3O energy absorbing type. It even has the back pad included so there is nothing else you’ll need to buy. In a casual style like this, the D3O works well because it is very pliable and comfortable… it fits well with the casual nature of this jacket.
Have a look at our photo gallery for some closeups of the features and of the night time reflectives on the jacket. I really like this style for the comfort and casual nature of it. I know lots of riders would enjoy this jacket. :: Paul, 02-21-18
