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.

Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket 4.6 5 168 168
Wanted a jacket for cooler weather and HiViz... I was having trouble finding a jacket that fit as I am not a small person. The Kilimanjaro is a roomy fit and is very warm with the quilted liner. I will enjoy being able to extend my riding season and the HiViz yellow is very bright, great visibility!! October 5, 2015
Great jacket, still a little warm for summer This jacket isn't meant for the summer heat, I think they try to express this but claim the venting will keep you adequate except for the warmest of days. Well, I know in cool weather this thing rocks. In the heat, it gets a bit unbearable. The fit is awesome, feels very tailored. I am 6"2' 190 lbs, have about a 42 for the chest and a 34 inch waist. The measurements for the large fit me the best, the waist is a little big but if I went down a size for that then I imagine it would be tight on the chest. Has some Velcro cinching that helps around the waist. Glad I didn't get the medium. OH, I wear a 34-35 inch sleeve for dress shirts and the sleeves on this are definitely long enough. Great coat, buy it today. Got the silver looking one and it is quite dapper. September 26, 2015
Great all-around jacket, ordered the bright yellow jacket for visability, would purchase again. New to motorcycling, rode all-around Indianapolis during Moto GP weekend with changing ever changing conditions, very comfortable in hot humid weather and dry in rain. I am tall with long arms so I ordered the tall version, Velcro adjustments allow for a snug fit. If you only want one jacket, this is the one. This is one of many items I have purchased from Revzilla, as always customer service is the best! August 10, 2015
Great jacket for the price. I purchased this jacket for my wife because I own the same jacket. It is proven to be a first rate all weather jacket with great ventilation.I have ridden in rain, hail, and high wind with temperatures varying from 35° to 95° it has performed perfectly and all conditions. I highly recommend this jacket.I cannot comment about the protection and armor because I have not gone down with this jacket,but with the quality of construction my assumption would be that it would perform as advertised. September 7, 2015
Good all round jacket Good down to 40 deg with liner and regular clothes. front lower velcro pocket a bit small - your hand will tend to pull the liner out with it and whatever is in it. Wish I'd got a lighter color than black, gets hot in 80 deg+. Armour is low profile - but haven't used it yet. Does freeway commute great. Overall very happy June 29, 2015
Change your mind about a textile jacket in hot weather Previously wore a First Gear mesh jacket and was able to wear it for one riding season, then just didn't feel as comfortable in it so I rode without one again for a few years. Well I reached the age in life where I don't bounce as well as I used to, so some protection seemed like a good idea. Did a lot of reading and research before deciding on the First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket (in silver and dark grey) for my wife and I. Without the knowledge from long distance riders it would have been too hot for the summer, but the Kilimanjaro IS an ideal four season jacket. I've not ridden with it in temperatures below 40°F but it felt fine in the 40's w/o the liner. Now you might think it odd to wear a full textile jacket in hot weather, in fact a friend who worked in a MC accessory shop, said the jacket is very good at protection but you will hate it in hot weather. Guess what if you wear under clothing like LDComfort, you will be cooler in 90°F weather than you would w/o it. If the temps are above 90° the flow of hot air will actually make you hotter, if you're in the sun, even more so. The light color of the jacket keeps the sun off you and the vents allow any moisture inside the jacket to evaporate more slowly, cooling and retaining the cooling as it does. Really amazing. The other day I rode to the same location about 10 miles away in upper 80° temps. Wearing this jacket, I was comfortable and dry when I returned home, riding w/o the jacket my t-shirt was wet from sweating. Now I've not gotten the opportunity to get caught in the rain to test how waterproof it is, or thankfully not tested the protection, but I'm expecting it to work in both cases. This jacket is a very good investment. It did feel bulky when I first started wearing it but as I got accustomed to it and it broke in, it became very comfortable. The only negative I have, it has so many nice pockets that I tend to put too much stuff in them, making the jacket heavy. Did you get the feeling I luv this jacket? June 29, 2015
Great jacket Ive had this for about a year now, and i got it in the hi viz. Its a great cooler and bad weather jacket. It holds out water during rain and keeps you warm when its cold. I've ridden in weather from about 30 degrees to about 85 degrees in this jacket. The d30 armor makes it extremely comfortable to wear. The only downside is that when its hot outside, this jacket does get pretty warm even with the vents open. Even more so if you aren't moving at a pretty good speed. June 17, 2015
My very first jacket almost 25k miles later I've had this jacket for 2 years and 24,600 miles. I commute 70 miles each way, year round, and down to 30 deg F. I'm on a CBR 250RA and I do stay tucked down the highway to keep up with traffic. This is my first jacket and it's held up fantastically. That being said below 45 deg I wear a sweatshirt underneath and I stay warm down to about 35 deg at 80 mph. I do get cold below that temp but it's manageable down to 30 deg. If I sit up straight into the wind it's much colder ( good thing my bike isn't powerful enough to keep up that speed without me being tucked). With the liner out my temperature range is 60 deg F and up. As for warm weather, as long as your moving and all the vents are open, I've been comfortable a little past 80 deg F. Into the 90s and you'll be wishing for a mesh jacket. When it comes to rain it was pretty water proof when I purchased it, but now the sleeves soak at the elbows in about 30 min of rain or road spray. The only thing the jacket is missing is a CE back protector, but I picked up one of those with my airbag vest Considering the mileage I do this jacket has held up fantastically. I only wish I knew how to clean my HiViz coloring better :) June 12, 2015

Sort by:
RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Chris P: Many of my friends swear by it's durability and water proof capability. Hard to beat the price for what you get. Oct 6, 2015
Scott W: I wanted a jacket that was 3-4 seasons so I needed good venting, waterproofing and removable insulation. This fits the bill and the D30 armor is great. Sep 29, 2015
Ernesto C: I chose this textile jacket because, to me, it seems like the best compromise between the high-end jackets and entry-level jackets. Specifically, I wanted high-viz, high denier nylon, waterproof outer shell (as opposed to removable liner), good venting (the pit zips also appealed to me). I also liked the style of the jacket. Sep 22, 2015
Wesley I: It has the features I was looking for and hopefully it will fit! Other les expensive jackets have not fit properly. I'll know in a few days when the jacket arrives. Sep 17, 2015
James W: Good value comes recommended. Aug 28, 2015
Aziz Orhan I: Because I need a TALL SIZE waterproof winter jacket. FG stuff always works for me, the reviews were positive and I like the looks. Aug 7, 2015
Greg D: Fit and quality May 28, 2015
Rory V: Waterproof jacket for long west trip this summer. May 28, 2015
Travis A: Adventure rider that braved cold and rain needs to have the right jacket for it. May 18, 2015
Felipe S: Need new riding jacket and like this one May 9, 2015
Lauri M: When I bought in January the liner helped with cold weather rides since I have no windscreen on my bike, and now that warm weather has returned the liner is out and the vents are open as needed. This my first jacket other than leather and it is just as tough, seems to weigh the same when the liner is installed as a leather one would too. Apr 25, 2015
Axel W: This will be my third First Gear jacket. The first one became history when I drove a bike through a deer in Nevada. The second I still have and it is about 12 years old but still good, although the Velcro around the neck is getting worn out. I love all the pockets and the well thought out design. I hope this new one is as good as my old ones! Apr 20, 2015
Bill F: I wanted a 3/4 length, waterproof, 4-season jacket for long distance touring. Mar 25, 2015
S M: Friend has the same jacket. Likes it better than the $800 Klim he had. Sold the Klim. Mar 23, 2015
Roman M: Seems like a good value . Mar 19, 2015

Greg T: My first one got destroyed in a crash. My favorite jacket so I bought another one. Mar 9, 2015
Michael S: Thought I would like. Didn't for many reasons. Form, fit, function. Just didn't feel right. Returned. Mar 4, 2015
Sarah R: This seems like a good value and every First Gear product I have owned has been great. First Gear also stands behind their products. Mar 1, 2015
Michael N: I needed a four, for me it will be, season hi-vis jacket. The reviews were great. The features were very appealing. Had to exchange for a size larger. The switch was a seamless transaction. Revzilla should be a business mold for other companies out there. I will continue to find more reasons to shop and buy from them. Feb 27, 2015
barry g: Good quality reasonably priced full featured jacket for wife Feb 18, 2015
Jesse D: Living in western Nebraska you see all 4 seasons sometimes in the same day and as a friend of mine, who is an avid rider, you're gear can make all the difference, so again reading reviews and watching product videos from revzilla, i chose a style and brand that i thought would be the best, and if i had to name one thing other than brand and reviews that made this choice easy, it was the D30 armor Feb 18, 2015
Roger N: Upgrade from FirstGear Jaunt. Chose black to hide road grime. Great fit and features. Jan 23, 2015
DANIEL P: This is my second Kilimanjaro Jacket. Loved the first, still have it over ten years old. Great riding protection against the elements. Jan 16, 2015
Stephen S: Firstgear makes great stuff, and I needed a four season, all-weather jacket. Jan 1, 2015
Michael N: Studied many jackets the Kilimangaro seemed to have the most for the money. Ilike the fact that the sizing is on the large side as I could stand to lose a few pounds. Love the high vis and all the features. The video was great. Dec 30, 2014
Clark M: Needed a good jacket with Hi-Viz Yellow. It worked great when Bambi attacked me... he bounced right off my shoulder... Without the armor.. I would have been screwed! Dec 10, 2014
Stacey H: own 2 it.. got my son one Nov 8, 2014
Joseph G: Hi Viz three season and waterproof Nov 8, 2014
HARVEY C: Well-designed, reasonably priced all-season jacket. Good weather protection. Good crash protection. Hi-viz. Nov 3, 2014
James H: Good reviews and Firstgear value. Oct 27, 2014
Mark T: I was looking for a jacket with a waterproof shell. Went back and forth between this and the Kathmandu but settled on the Kilimanjaro due to slightly shorter length and handwarmer pockets. I really like that D30 armor is included. I wish Firstgear would put D30 in the HT Overpants. Oct 14, 2014
K I: I've purchased many Firstgear products over the years and have never been disappointed. This is my second Kilimanjaro. Oct 12, 2014
Wade M: Customer reviews and overall quality were the reasons for choosing the Kilimanjaro jacket. The venting and pockets were a huge plus along with the outer section being waterproof vice an inside liner. Oct 6, 2014
Brandon H: The reviews on ADVrider led me to this as rain protection is as important as road protection in the Pacific Northwest. Sep 27, 2014
bruce G: I ride in cold, hot, wet and dry environments and was looking for a good all weather jacket. This jacket, based on many reviews, should fit the bill. As well, I am pleased with the price, relative to other suppliers i have searched. Sep 21, 2014
Andrew M: High viz color. Tall size availability. Sep 3, 2014
P E: Fantastic all around jacket in high viz yellow! I'm 6'4" 225lbs and the XLT fits great! Fit is adjustable and sleeves are long enough, even in the riding possition... Aug 30, 2014
Mack A: I have a 12 year old Kilimanjaro but wanted to get a newer better fitting jacket with the shoulder vents. Firstgear stuff lasts, works well and is a great value. All the Firstgear stuff I've bought over the years has held up. Aug 16, 2014

franklin b: features, esp. built in waterproof material, not a separate waterproof liner. All the pockets, quality protection. May 4, 2014
Michael C: Besides reputation, features and customer reviews the horizontal shoulder vents made it the only way to go for anyone who rides a touring bike with a full windshield, like I do. This jacket is surprisingly light, flexible and can be ridden all day in the full sun without breaking a sweat. Apr 28, 2014
Dale H: Comes in a tall size (I am 6' 6") and from the video and reviews on RevZilla Apr 27, 2014

Scott W: need a waterproof jacket w/armor; got great reviews; love the fit Dec 3, 2013

Donald S: Have had Firstgear products in in the passed and liked the quality. Need a multi purpose jacket. Dec 1, 2013
Christopher S: I purchased this jacket because when I got run over/bounced off of a flatbed truck at 40 mph making an illegal uturn, the Firstgear pants I was wearing saved my skin and kept my hip from shattering. Wrote them a thank you letter, they sent me a free pair of pants, no questions, no hesitation. That kind of customer service is how you get loyal customers. A great product helps too! Nov 30, 2013
Paul B: Prior, repeated experience with Firstgear products - never disappointed. Great value at twice the price, so the affordability makes Firstgear a no-brainer. Oct 23, 2013
James G: Had a Kilimanjaro before and was really impressed with it. Was in an accident wearing it and it continued to perform. Sep 19, 2013
Doug M: Enjoyed good quality and performance of other Firstgear products in the past as well as reading many good reviews of this particular product. Sep 15, 2013

Phil H: Because of the simplicity and ventilation. Aug 18, 2013
Chris L: I bought this for commuting to supplement my Joe Rocket leather jacket. Also, it apparently zips to the HT air overpants I purchased. Aug 8, 2013
John H: Own this jacket in a larger size. I lost a lot of weight, and needed a smaller one. Chose the same model/color. It works well for me. Aug 7, 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.

Daniel T: The first caveat is what type of bike you are on and the wind screen you have. I am on a Kawasaki Concours with a full wind screen. Airflow through the jackete does not happen. In the heat this jacket is hot. I do have a full open textile jacket that I generally use for work commute but when long distance riding I take the kilimajaro. My solution is to wear a cooling vest. with the jacket zipper open and that works. Overall I love this jacket in the spring and fall in upstate NY. Sep 6, 2014

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

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

Michael K: I have not had any water through the vents whatsoever. The only problem is that you have to use the warm liner or wear some kind of fleece or sweatshirt. The reason being the warmth from your arms will pull moisture through the sleeves since the material is breathable. But if your arms are covered somehow, you stay dry as a bone. Sep 13, 2015

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 (1) No (0)
Tom P: 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 Tom Good answer? Yes (1) 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 (1) 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: 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

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

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.

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

Harvey C: 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

A shopper asked: can anyone tell me if the hi viz jacket has a hi viz standards mark on it and which one it is? Sep 27, 2014

HARVEY C: I don't see one. I doubt that there is enough retroreflective material on the jacket to meet any government high-visibility standards, which are intended for occupational and industrial use. But when I leave the jacket on my bike and walk away, the jacket is very conspicuous. For nighttime riding, I don't think there's any substitute for lots of high-quality hi-vis retroreflective tape on the helmet. Sep 29, 2014

Michael C: On the back of the jacket there is a hi viz strip across the shoulder blades as well as the FIRSTGEAR patch on the back of the neck. Sep 27, 2014

Michael C: If the velcro strips line up I can't see why not. Go to the D30 website and see the various pads available. Nov 28, 2014

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

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

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

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
