Firstgear Kenya Jacket 4.2 5 12 12
Good winter jacket I bought this jacket for sub 40 degree weather. Here in Vegas it does get cold, sometimes in the early morning and after the sun goes down it can sit around 26-38 degrees. This has great wind protection, and is very warm, if it gets above 45 degrees and you are not moving you will start to sweat. Once you enter a building that is heated you have to take it off, even unzipping it doesn't help. Didn't ride with it without the liners so I have not review for that. The one complaint I have is that I would get some wind up from the waist which would give a slight chill, I would still wear a base layer for extreme cold or wind. I'm 6'5" 210lbs the Large Tall size fits true. Due to my size I called customer service for recommendations, they recommended this Kenya jacket, I'm glad I called and took their advice. I also got the Firtsgear HT overpants Liked those too. March 7, 2014
Great Looks and Utility Purchased this jacket as I was looking for someting shorter than the traditional dual sport/adventure "coats". The Kenya Jacket is exactly that, a jacket. The front sits just at the belt level, while the rear covers a little more when seated. Just rode a 60 mile trip on a variety of county roads and highways in 50 degree F weather with a slight wind and the jacket was the perfect choice. The external pocket under the button flap at about chest height holds an iPod, which allows easy access. Sizewise: I am 6.5 ft., 200lbs with fairly broad shoulders. Originally I ordered a size L Tall based on the size chart, that was definitely too small. I replaced the jacket with a size XL Tall and it finds great, yet snug when wearing the liner and an additional zip up sweater underneath. I am happy with it though, no flappy material, no wind issues. The straps above the hips and on the sleeves are great to tie the jacket down to your body. Lots of pocket options! PS: I am riding in a very upright position on my 2007 KLR650 November 29, 2013
Will Keep you warm with only a shirt on 30s! Great jacket, very comfortable to wear and will keep you warm and dry, rode in a pretty good storm with it and it kept me dry. I live in ohio and its the jacket i use to commute on my zx6r when the weather gets cold, there is plenty of space/ pockets on the jacket and so far i rode on lower 30s with just a t-shirt underneath, cannot think of a better jacket with this much quality for this price. Very well made. I am 5`11 and 160lbs the Medium fits me well but it gets snug if you try to use a hoodie under it. November 17, 2013
keeps you warm and dry I haven't had a chance to try it in warm weather but in 35-60 degree weather it keeps you warm and dry. With 35 degree weather I use the liner with a t shirt and am fine. Rode through a few downpours and was completely dry after 40 minutes of riding. The only downside to this is the included neck gator. It's not that great the velcro goes across your face and when it's velcroed to the jacket it limits the turning of your head. But toss it and pick up a different one for $15. October 5, 2013
Large Tall Fit Review I'm 6'7" and 210, so quite thin and I have a very tall torso and long arms. Based on the measurements of the various jacket brands on RevZilla, I went with FirstGear as this was one of the only brands that even seemed to come close. I have to mention, the video explaining how to measure is incorrect about measuring the arm length, which became clear when I reviewed my measurement against the size chart. You have to measure from the center of your back, just at your shoulder line, over to your shoulder socket, and then down your arm. The video says just to measure down your arm from the shoulder socket. The overall jacket length (body) is shorter than I'd hoped, it rests just a bit above the waist in the front, but the back has a flap that hangs a couple inches lower so my back isn't exposed when I lean over. I would return the jacket for better fit, if not for that back flap. The chest sizing and arm length are true to the measurements provided in the size chart (provided you measure correctly). As it stands it's a little short, but I don't think I will find a better option at this price point due to my size, so I'm keeping it. Other features about the jacket seem great. Everything looks sturdy, there are a ton of pockets, and the style is actually better in person than I thought it would be. As others mentioned, the armor does shift a bit and is a little uncomfortable out of the box. I'll see how it sits while riding, I don't think it will be a problem. I'm a little worried about the zippers attaching the cold weather liner, they appear to be pretty weak, and I'd worry they might break after some time. All other zippers look very sturdy.

excellent workmanship. fits great. jacket looks good and fits great. i'm 6ft., 220lbs. and ordered size large. i live at 7000ft. and the jacket has been great for the weather around here (colorado rockies). the airflow however is a little lacking and could use sleeve vents as well. September 4, 2013
This jacket really needs zippers on the sleeves! After searching for a good all-rounder jacket, especially one that could adapt to summer in the northeastern U.S., a season that features mornings with temps in the high 60s and then shifts to temps in the high 80s/low90s by afternoon. This jacket appeared to fit the bill. I was convinced I was going to keep the jacket, but as I got geared up to go meet some friends for dinner on a 60 degree May evening, I had a problem. The jacket bunched up oddly and unattractively when I put on gloves with gaunlets. This problem could probably be solved with zippers to help fold over the extra forearm material. I did not take the jacket on my ride and returned it the next day. June 12, 2013
Too generous with the sizing. I tried the Large and X-Large. Couldn't zip up the Large and the X-Large was much too big. The sleeves on the XL were so roomy that I had to cinch the straps all the way down to keep the armor from floating. The worst feature is how the armor is mounted to the *inside* of the liner. You can't put your arm into the sleeve without snagging the armor pieces. It works normally with the thermal liner installed. May 29, 2013

Michael J: not a too flashy riding jacket that is for tall riders Feb 17, 2014
Carl W: Wanted a lighter weight, armored jacket to wear on dual-sport / ADV rides in hot weather. With liner removed, this jacket becomes an ideal piece of protective gear, suitable for warm weather highway and trail riding. Feb 14, 2014
Stephen C asked: Was Stevan wearing tall large or large? He is 6'3" Dec 27, 2013

William W: I'm sure Stevan (if he is the guy in the video) was wearing a large.

I am 6' tall, 200#, short-waisted, and have monkey arms. I was in a hurry for a good jacket so I tried on a large at a local dealer (MUCH more expensive price tag) to see if it would fit, and it did. I ordered one from Revzilla and it fits exactly the same. I couldn't be happier! I've worn it in all kinds of weather and temps, with and without the liner and neck gaiter. You won't be disappointed.

A shopper asked: If the armor isn't the D30 or Forcefield, I'd like to replace it with such. So I'd just like to know if the armor in the First Gear Kenya jacket is removable/replaceable. Apr 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David F: Yes, the back, shoulder, and elbow armor is removable. However, I found that the Forcefield shoulder upgrades didn't fit (don't know about other armor brands). The good news is that Forcefield Sport Lite type B back protector fits just fine. Apr 11, 2013
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The armor found in the Firstgear Kenya Jacket is not D30 or Forceifled. The good news is, the armor found in the Firstgear Kenya Jacket is removable/replaceable. Apr 5, 2013

A shopper asked: Is it safe to assume that this jacket has a zip that will attach to pants? Apr 27, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: That is a safe assumption. There is a 10" zipper at the back of the jacket. Also included is the "other" side to the zipper which can be installed in any pant by your finest local tailor. As for pants that already have a zipper to attach a jacket, only other Firstgear pants will be a direct match. May 1, 2013

A shopper asked: Is there any soft armor in the forearms of this jacket? Mar 20, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: It's not soft armor, but it's not hard either. It's kinda in the middle. It's comfortable, for sure, but it's not a second skin. It's also CE approved - so it's safe! Woo! Mar 21, 2013
