Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket

The Flagship jacket in the Firstgear line, often imitated and never duplicated, it's the jacket that others aspire to be. If you could only have one jacket - this is it. With its exceptional fit and attention to detail the Kilimanjaro is comfortable in any weather, any season, anywhere, anytime. Battle-tested to the ends of the earth - and now in its third decade - it keeps you warm when it's cold, cool when it's hot and dry when it's wet. It's the multi-tool of motorcycle outerwear. Kilimanjaro, gear you can depend on.

Features:

  • Hypertex waterproof and breathable outer shell made of 400 denier nylon and 100% seam sealed construction provides a barrier to keep the elements outside of the jacket.
  • To resist abrasion, shoulders and elbows reinforced with 640 denier nylon
  • Fully adjustable D3O T5 CE Armor in the shoulders and elbows delivers the same protection as standard CE foam armor, but is thinner and more flexible, resulting in a more comfortable, flexible fit - EVA dense foam back pad
  • When warm, supply fresh air direct to the body using two- 6” shoulder vents, Two  9” pit vents and two 9-1/2” back exhaust vents ---shoulder vents can be held open by folding the cover inward to hook and loop closure
  • Main closure held in place by a two way #8 YKK Vislon zipper, shielded from the elements by a double storm flap with rain gutter and secured using  spring snaps – inside the placket for easy access is a security pocket with a red slider for increased visibility
  • Collar closure utilizes a slider snap that allows up to 1-1/2” adjustment for a personal fit
  • Integrated  on the front chest are two cargo storage pockets to secure your stuff, protected from moisture by #5 YKK rubberized zippers
  • More storage in the two lower front cargo pockets – seam sealed pocket bags and an envelope opening, closure uses hook and loop – plus – there are two front side pockets protected by #5 YKK rubberized zippers
  • Compression straps on the bicep and forearm adjusts to fit you
  • Integrated into the collar is an under-the-helmet rain hood to keep water from running down your neck
  • One time adjustable waist belt with hook and loop closure - sleeve cuffs can be adjusted to fit you
  • Stretch material used in the shoulder, arm and elbow joints add flexibility and is waterproof and breathable
  • Removable, insulated thermal liner with wind blocking, adjustable, neoprene cuffs

Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket 4.6 5 105 105
Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket I'm 6'1" 220.lb I ordered the large and it fits nice. I haven't had the jacket out in the rain yet, it does block the wind well and there is a lot of room for adjustments. April 14, 2014
Like it a lot, but ... Great jacket, lots of convenient features, excellent visibility even at night. The only gripe I have is that the front snaps for the main zipper weren't installed correctly (or were defective) and two of them have failed (the button-to-socket rivet joint failed). Firstgear customer service was outstanding, they sent me replacements right away and reimbursed the cost of a local seamstress to install them ... didn't have to return the jacket for service and lose several weeks of riding with it. April 14, 2014
Good all around jacket Pros: Very waterproof, several waterproof pockets with plenty of storage area, Comfortable from 40 degrees to low 80's as long as your moving with vents open. Cons: Fits a little large and baggy which tends to allow the jacket to catch the wind. April 13, 2014
Excellent protection I skidded down a highway after a 70 mph dump on ice, and this jacket did its number one job perfectly. The elbow areas were shredded, and several other areas were damaged, but this jacket kept me completely uninjured. Prior to that, it was great in cold weather with a heated vest, and was comfortable to 80 degrees or so in the hot weather. I did not try it hotter than that, so I can't say for sure how well the venting works, but there is plenty of opportunity for it to be opened up. April 7, 2014
Very good jacket This is my cool weather jacket. I don't recall that I've used it without the liner, as it hasn't been warm since I've owned it. That said, I've used it from the mid 50's down to about 20 and have been comfortable through the whole range. Haven't found any drafty areas, yet it breathes just enough to avoid moisture build up inside. The collar and cuffs are not scratchy, it's roomy but not baggy, doesn't restrict movement and seems to be constructed quite well. For you commuter types, I think it would stand up to daily use for quite a long time. Overall, I would say it's well worth the price. April 7, 2014
Excellent jacket for a great price. I tried the Alpinestars Cape Town Air Drystar Jacket first, but the collar on it was so stiff and tight that I knew it wouldn't make the cut. Sent it back on got this jacket on the recommendation of a friend. Love it so far. Haven't ridden in summer weather yet, so not really certain how it will do in warm weather, but it's very comfortable and high quality features. March 31, 2014
A good 3 season coat, below 40 it gets cold I like it, at 6'6" tall and 300 lbs, I'm a difficult fit. This coat does the job, got the tall size and arm length his perfect. Plenty of zippered vents that work well. Velcro adjustments at wrists. Forearm and waist. Well ventilated when hot out, warm when cool, and kept the rain out . I have no complaints March 25, 2014
collar needs additional snaps had this jacket for a few months now. like everything about the jacket but the collar. if its not hooked the flap smacks the side of the helmet which gets pretty anoying. March 20, 2014

A shopper asked: I live and ride in Maine. I ride in the winter, too. There's little detail on how good the thermal insert is. A little more info here would help, Thank you! if if you would not recommend this jacket for winter riding in Maine (will be using at least 3 season, and 4 season if it vents well, as well), please recommend one that does better in the same price range. I'm looking for a high visibility one, too, so it should come in yellow, if possible. I'm replacing a black leather jacket. Dec 1, 2011

Nwwoodworker1: In the Pacific Northwest I have found my jacket to be comfortable to about 35 degrees upto 45 miles an hour. That is wearing just a T shirt under the jacket. Wearing a insulated shirt under would help with wind chill and differences in peoples body warm. Jacket has lots of adjustment and runs large. I have the Hi-Viz and is very good daytime, ok nighttime. The reflective strips don't show up very well in low light or at an angle. Piping or other would be better. I am planning on adding some reflective strips.
Have already gone to fabric store. This has worked well for other gear. Venting seems well designed. But have not used yet. Hope this helps. Bought my Hi-Viz and other gear at RevZiila.

ggentzke: Just picked this up (and reviewed) and did a good amount of riding this past weekend in NYC and Long Island, including high speed highway time. Temperatures dipped into the high 30s and were mostly in the 40s. I only wore a long sleeve t-shirt under the Kilimanjaro and was fine. Because the fit is pretty big on me, I could easily layer to up the heat - no need as of yet. It blocks the wind excellently. Haven't tested rain protection or opened the vents yet. Dec 12, 2011

duggs22: It will probably be tested to its max in Maine, but if you layer it will probably serve you well. I commute 50 miles one way. I had not gotten cold til 3/4 of the way through my trip but I also didn't have good pants or windproof gloves. So I think this jacket will be fine, but this is my first heavy riding jacket.

Mikelliott: I left the house one Friday at 34 degrees and rode all day into the evening. I wore my Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket all day and it was great, warm enough in the morning and was fine at noon when it got up to 64 degrees. It does run a little large, almost wish I had gotten a size smaller. Jan 16, 2012

DrCohen: Warmth depends so much on the individual rider and on the bike's wind protection. I get cold easily. When it gets into the 40's I wear a Tourmaster electric jacket liner under the Kilimanjaro. When it gets even colder, I plug in the Tourmaster. Oct 22, 2012

HomestakeJake: Very much so. T-shirt and this jacket with the quilted liner took me in to the low 40's with comfort, started sweating by 60 degrees. Apr 15, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi, I live in the Pacific North West. I think from reading the reviews I am comfortable with the jackets ability to keep the rain out but what about when it gets sunny. How does this jacket perform in sunnier days? Say in the 80's.
I was gonna go for the Klim Misano but if this jacket performs well in the heat then it's a no brainer.

Thanks

Jonathan H: I think it works quite well in the heat, when the cuff velcro is loose the sleeves flair quite a bit (more than most jackets) allowing good airflow up the arm and into the body. I find it is more comfortable than my mesh jacket because of this forced-air effect. Feb 25, 2014
Reply to Jonathan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
robert w: I ride a Yamaha FJR1300.Even with all the wind protection of a sport tourer, venting and air flow was adequate for 80 degrees (without liner). Might not be as cool as a mesh jacket, but up to 80 degrees and moving through the air it's adequate. Feb 25, 2014

Ray M: I have found the jacket to be tolerable in higher temperatures on an open
bike with tee shirt base layer. A full fairing/tall shield would of course alter
this.

Bob B: I put the standard size D30 back pad in my jacket and no issues or problems. You do feel it sometimes but soon forget it's even there. Did 12 days on the CDT with a Camelback and really didn't notice it. Feb 7, 2014

A shopper asked: Details say that they cannot make a Hi-Viz jacket in Nylon. Does that mean that the shell for this years jacket in Hi Viz is the same as last years and you get no benefit of the upgraded material used in other colors. Sep 23, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
nonamechosen: So if the Hi-Viz is the same polyester material from the old jacket and not the upgraded Nylon, why isn't the Hi-Viz cheaper than the other colors? Where is the price justification for last years remodel. Jan 29, 2012
Reply to nonamechosen Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: That is correct, the DayGlo color option is the only one without the upgraded material. Sep 23, 2011
Reply to Chris Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: Typically the High-Viz dye/paint/coloring is more expensive than other more standard colors. While the material may be less expensive the dye is most likely more. Unfortunately, at this point, the High-Viz was recalled due to color stay problems, so we won't see this option back for another month or two. Jan 30, 2012

A shopper asked: What are the differences between the Kilimanjaro and the Kathmandu Jackets ? They seem similar, yet subtle differences ? Jan 12, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Grant C: The Kathmandu has a water bladder built in but the Kili doesn't. That is the main difference. I bought the Kili as I already have a hydrapak. The jacket is awesome. Comfortable, cool enough for pretty much all year round with vents open. Yes in West Oz we look for cool features not warming features! (It was 44 C on Saturday!!!) The quilted liner goes to the dogs basket!LOL!!

All round great jacket which pairs well with the Kili pants! Enjoy!!

William O: I own the Kilimanjaro jacket. Can't tell you how it differs from Kathmandu, but can tell you it's a great jacket. I can ride comfortably down to about 25 degrees f. Lots of pockets. Fits me well. And a good looking jacket. Jan 12, 2014

A shopper asked: How does the Fall 2011 Firstgear Kilimanjaro sizing compare to Firstgear Rush Mesh Jacket? Is it a good match? Large = Large or are there differences? Those of us with some Firstgear clothing would like to know how sizing compares across Firstgear lines. Sep 12, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
KnoxF800GS: I have both of these jackets and have the same size in each. I am 6-4 and chose the XLT. The Rush mesh is a little more tailored cut and not quite as bulky as the Kilimanjaro. Both of these jackets fit me well and are very comfortable. I chose the Kilimanjaro first and loved it. When the temperature got up to 85 to 90 degrees, I came back to RevZilla for the Rush mesh. I still feel protected but much cooler at those higher temperatures. Jun 5, 2012
Reply to KnoxF800GS Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: The sizing is the same across the board with the exception of the TPG series fitting a bit more "European cut". The Kilimanjaro is longer than the Rush Mesh, but should fit the same. Sep 29, 2011

A shopper asked: How would the 2012 Firstgear Kathmandu Overpants look and match up with this jacket, or is there an all black pant that would match up and look good with them? I would prefer that the all black pant have the same basic atributes as the 2012 Kathmandu pants. Oct 5, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stevan P: The Kathmandu Pants would be a great option to match up with this jacket. For an all black option we suggest taking a look at the Firstgear TPG Escape Pants. Oct 24, 2011
