Klim Marrakesh jacket in black Product Information

New for 2023, this is an updated version of the Klim Marrakesh jacket which has become our favourite summer jacket here at Motolegends. For us this might just be the ultimate, lightweight, summer jacket. In concept, it is similar to the Rukka Forsair, but it betters it in a number of areas.

The outer fabric of the Marrakesh is a 1000 denier woven Cordura. The fact that it does not have a waterproof membrane means that it will flow large volumes of air although, in the margin, we would have to suggest that the knitted Cordura of the Forsair will flow more. But made of stronger material, we would expect the Klim jacket to be more abrasion resistant and, with its four-way stretch, probably more comfortable to wear too. Unlike the Forsair, the Marrakesh does have a waterproof coating, but with it's loosely woven shell, in five minutes of proper rain you are still going to get wet!

This new version of the Marrakesh now has D30 Ghost armour in the elbows, shoulders and a level 1 D30 protector fitted as standard in the back. All the rest is really detail. We're talking about pockets, reflective panels, comfort linings, and so on. Obviously, if it rains, you'll need a waterproof, but on a hot day this jacket is going to take some beating. We have always felt that there were perhaps slightly too few sizes on the Marrakesh and on occasion people would fall in between those sizes. This year, Klim has added a waist adjuster cord which should help solve this issue.

Product Reviews


Richard: Why did I take so long

This jacket and idea to layer is just amazing. Until you try this jacket you wont have an idea of how flexible it feels to wear. Ive been riding bikes for 40 years and owned every type of jacket out there but this is by far the best. Take the plunge and try one as even if its not for you Motolegends will include the postage label to return it F.O.C and give you a full refund. BUT YOULL PROBABLY LOVE IT

F D: Michael Jackson would have loved this one

Michael Jackson could have easily done all of his dance moves in this jacket. Its just the right combination of a snug fit and a stretch fit. It hold the armor in place almost as well as a compression jacket but stretches with your movements on the bike. While its cut like an in-road jacket, you could wear this off-road in a count of the stretch. It lets in a lot of air and its not heavy at all my only very minor observation is that because its stretchy, things put in the pockets will tend to bulge and move about. I dont ever put anything in my pockets but I certainly wont start now. Ive added the Maverick down jacket and the Zephyr membrane jacket plus a Scott rain outfit and with that I can ride in 90 of the weather I care to ride in. Its really a very versatile piece of kit

GaryL2486: Best Jacket Ive owned

Following the YouTube video from Motolegends. That presented this jacket and the advice around the layering. I took the plunge and bought the items . its great and although a vented jacket I only wear a thin layer underneath and still very comfortable on a chilly day. It handles a brief light passing shower. If you are considering it Buy, Buy,Buy!!!

Mike: Perfect for layering systems

I purchased this jacket at the beginning of summer. I have used it all through summer and into Autumn. This is one of the best bits of kit I have bought. The comfort level is superb. Whilst being protected with Level 2 D30 I feel much more free in my movement on the bike compared to the old ways of wearing heavier bike gear. Using the layering principle this jacket could be used all year round and I intend to use it through winter on those odd nice days we get. Size wise they come up big so I would suggest doing your homework on size. You may need to go down a size or two compared to most brands that opt the more ContinentalItalian sizings. I normally take anywhere between a size EU50-54 UK 40-44 and purchased the M size which is perfect and allows just right room for layering without going baggy.

Great Jacket: Chris is right

I bought this jacket based on Chriss detailed review in his video and he is bang on, the jacket is fantastically comfortable, looks great and is now my favourite jacket.

KevinG: Brilliant

Best jacket I have bought and so much lighter than the others. Very easy to wear and am now embracing the Motolegends layering solution with the Marakesh and Scotts waterproofs - All work well and are so comfortable to wear. I wish I had done this before!

Steve B: Simply brilliant!

This is the best summer jacket ever!! I appreciate that the team at Motolegends will say it is far more than a summer jacket when you factor in the various layers you can add but on its own this jacket is just perfect for the hot weather. It is ridiculously comfortable yet still gives a great level of confidence, looks great and has plenty of pockets. Be careful as this new model comes up big so I had to go down a size - I am 6ft and 44 chest and swapped a large for a medium which is now perfect. I genuinely enjoy wearing this as you can hardly notice it. I have the Klim Zephyr that I take out with me just in case but I have nothing but respect for the quality of their kit. As always the service from the store was outstanding!

MVW: Brave new world - that has such wonders in it

WOW. I bought a bike, after 20+ years, my old leather still fitted, sort of, though it seem to have shrunk. Then I found out just how much kit had changed! I bought this and the other 3 jackets you need to go with it, Zephyr, Maverick and Scott waterproof. Firstly - go with the size advice - they all stretch and you can wear them in practically any combination - well leave the Scott for the outer layer. This jacket and combo wont work for everyone, it all depends on the type of rider you are and the kind of riding you do. Im fair-weather, weekends, hope to do some long summer rides, Ive done my time on commutes in all weather and stupidly early hours, no need to do anymore. This jacket is great for me. So think about what you want to spend and if this fits the way you ride, buy it. I did upgrade the amour, seem daft not to. The fit of the jacket is good and its very comfortable. My one issue is that old curse of mine, arm length. If they made this in a long sleeve version my happiness would be complete, but they dont, so Ill just have to stick with being chuffed.

Andy H: The Dogs.

Bought this along with the wind stopper. Ive kept the Level 1 back protector in a trade off between comfort and safety, but my, what a jacket. Really well made out of tough Cordura , this does not feel like wearing a motorcycle jacket. No more rushing to get moving on a hot day, stay nice and cool. In the early morning 6.00 am, I use the windstopper underneath, then stow it in a pocket or my tail bag. I wasnt sure about buying this, but if your budget runs to a decent summer jacket, this will not disappoint you. It really is the dogs bllcks.

Sully: More Quality from Slim and Motolegends

Long post alert! I am a big-time researcher of all my biking purchases and this is another reason for dealing with Motolegends as their reviews and video content is second to none when comparing and deciding on new kit. On to the jacket - all of the claims made by ML regarding the Marrakesh are imho totally correct. I was pleasantly surprised by the reassuring heft of the 1000 denier Cordura and having opted for the level 2 Ghost upgrade I have total confidence in this jacket. Further, the comfort level is simply stunning. The Sizing advice was well taken and the stretch is amazing in such an obviously protective garment. The look is excellent and on its debut 50 mile ride it was like I had been wearing it for years. Outstanding. The airflow is nothing short of sorcery. Ill be getting a Zephyr to compliment this soon, and likely a Maverick even though I already have a MkII Rukka down jacket. The Scott waterproof suit is already on the shopping list. I now own several items from Klim and they are the equal of any of my Rukka, Held and Daytona gear. I really do rate them at the top of the biking tree. Thanks to ML and Kim for my new favourite piece of biking gear!
