The Enduro S4 jacket is made to wear OVER Klim’s Baja S4 jacket (or any other summer mesh Klim jacket). The sizing of this Enduro S4 is made larger so it can easily be worn over the jacket. For example, the size Medium in this jacket measures out with a max chest of about 45” which is about 5” larger than the size Medium Baja. So if you plan to wear the Enduro S4 OVER a Klim or other riding jacket we advise choosing the same size in this jacket as your Baja S4 (or other Klim jacket.)
For reference, below is the typical sizing chart for Klim jackets. If you are choosing this Enduro S4 jacket for use with another (not Klim) jacket, you can use this chart to know what size in Klim you’d wear, and then order the same size in the Enduro S4
If you plan to wear this jacket over just street clothes (not over another jacket), I’d recommend buying one size smaller than you normally would wear in a Klim jacket.

Our Two Cents
Klim’s Enduro S4 jackets and pants are new for 2020 and they are the ultimate jacket/pant to wear over mesh/summer riding gear. This gear is made to pair with Klim’s Baja S4 summer jackets and pants, but the Enduro S4 gear could be the ultimate rain gear over any riding gear.
The Enduro S4 jackets and pants are sold separately, but I’ll tell you about both pieces since the basics are the same for each. The jacket is offered on this product page, so take the link below to buy the pants.
I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed a “rainsuit” of the same quality as these. The materials here look and feel like some of the finest fabrics used in riding gear, but with less thickness and weight. It will be tough gear, but the primary purpose here is to protect from rain and cold wind rather than crash abrasion resistance (which is offered by your protective riding gear to be worn under). Most rain gear feels like nylon or plastic and really doesn’t compare.
“S4” in the name of the Enduro jacket is for “four way stretch”. Schoeller came up with this 4-way stretch waterproof-breathable material. With the Enduro S4 on you won’t feel any binding or loss in range of motion that can be common when a rider wears gear that doesn’t have these stretch properties. Other waterproof garments don’t stretch like this one.
Pairing the Enduro S4 gear with the Klim Baja S4 gear makes for a year-round riding combination. Add layering for cold weather, use the Enduro S4 to block wind and/or rain, and maintain free movement on the bike. Note the rear map pocket access on the Enduro S4. The horizontal zipper in back lines up with the fanny/map pocket on the Baja jacket to allow access while wearing the Enduro jacket (For those who use this jacket with another style/brand of jacket… this is not a stand alone fanny pocket).
So if you are looking for the ultimate rain gear solution for your summer riding gear, you’re in the right place! It’s tough, but flexible and made with the ultimate quality materials. :: Paul, 03-10-20
Klim says: The Enduro S4 Jacket is the solution for full-time-mesh adventure riders and all-season dual-sport riders who need a perfectly versatile kit for when hot weather becomes inevitable rain. With full-body stretch properties, the Enduro S4 overshell kits perfectly with the Baja S4 adventure suit, fits over off-road armor, or works as your campsite waterproof soft-shell for foul weather.
