Firstgear Women's 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:

  • Women's fit: Tapered to fit a woman's shape
  • 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

On the left side, chest high is a mobile device pocket with  flap closure using hook and loop to secure – On the right side is a cargo pocket that is 12” wide and 8” tall to hold whatever you need for the adventure ahead
  • Extra wide reflective taping on front, arms and back for improved night visibility
  • Jacket- to-pant 10”  full conjunction zipper ; fits easily through liner portal
  • HiViz color Jacket made of polyester for best colorfast results - Nylon Day Glo has a tendency to release this color

Firstgear Women's Kilimanjaro Jacket 4.6 5 128 128
Function and fashion Bought this jacket after about 6 months of research. It was hard to forgo the sexy black leather options, but I knew that I wanted something durable, waterproof, and capable of adapting to as many seasons as I can ride. I also have a limited budget and didn't want to drop $500 or $600 on a jacket (however beautiful) that didn't keep me dry in the rain. This jacket is extremely comfortable and fits perfectly. I am 5'4" and about 125# and the small gives me enough room to fit some wool layers underneath. There are lots of options for adjustments and I'm hoping that the off-white color that I chose will keep me a bit cooler in the summer than the black mesh jacket I've been wearing until now. I'm also hoping it will improve visibility. (I wasn't ready yet to go for the hi-viz look.) I like the fact that this jacket is more function than fashion without making me look like an astronaut or firefighter. I'll report back when I have the chance to wear it in more extreme conditions than I've experienced so far. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. October 13, 2014
Great jacket Love this jacket! It is cut big, probably about a size or so. Lots of pockets easy to lose things with all the storage available. A true 3 to 4 season jacket. The venting is great, Fall in Wisconsin is 35 in the morning and 70 in the afternoon, a pain to plan for but this jacket does it! October 20, 2014
Nice jacket at a decent price Purchased this jacket for the cooler months in Wisconsin... so far, the jacket has done me well. Liner is warm.. riding to work in the mornings with temps in the upper 40s - I remain more than comfortable... jacket has plenty of storage; plenty of adjustment... the jacket is good and heavy, which is what I was going for... I upgraded the back protector with a Klim Viper pad, which added some weight, but I happily assume this has increased the jacket's level of protection... so far, I am very pleased with this jacket... seems well constructed. Hope to be wearing it for a long while! September 29, 2014
Was concerned about sizing I was looking for a jacket to go with my over pants. This jacket matched my pants but fit was a problem with the pants. I watched the video and followed the suggestions. My jacket fits perfectly. Unfortunately I bought the pants a local cycle shop. I learned my lesson!! :) September 22, 2014
Sizing Review Haven't gotten to use this on the road, but I wanted to speak to sizing/fit. I'm 5'6", 140lbs, slim build with broad-ish shoulders. This jacket fit me perfectly in size Small. It has some room, but that's easily adjusted with the arm and waist straps. It hangs just right, and after I made adjustments to the shoulder and elbow pad placement, I feel like I have a perfectly sized jacket. I would say that the Small would be good for anyone up to 5'7"/maybe 5'8" in the arms and torso, and definitely could be worn comfortably by someone with up to a 34"-36" waist (tho' that may be pushing it). Just my two cents. I'll update after I've had some miles on it; very impressed initially, however. September 17, 2014
Great Jacket This is a great jacket with some nice design features. The air flow is quite good tested at 90 deg humid day. Good for 3 season riding and water proof. Rain riding is comfortable. Only downsides are zippers get caught on fabric on inside pocket and Velcro is a little annoying catching sleeve on waste band. Seems to be wearing well so far and seems durable. September 8, 2014
Great for colder weather This jacket has a lot of details that make it worth the money. It has a lot of storage space and the closures ensure that items inside won't get wet in rainy weather. I ran heated gear wires through the arms and back and the jacket held them in place because it has a lot of loop closures. Highly recommend this product. July 14, 2014
Great Jacket I got this jacket because my wife wanted me to have something more Hi Viz for riding in the evening and early morning, to and from work. After much deliberation I got the XL version even though the chart suggested that I might be a L (I'm 5'7" and 180lbs). The XL is almost perfect, the sleeves are a little long but the excellent Velcro closures at the cuff make that a moot point. With the liner and a long sleeve shirt it is as snug as I would feel comfortable wearing. Without the liner and a t-shirt it snugs up nicely and I think if it were smaller, it might be too snug through the shoulders. I wore it on a recent weekend trip where I experienced 90+ temps and 2 days of rain. Ventilation was excellent (a little warm when stopped in traffic) and it kept me dry in some significant showers (really like the rain hood). For the money, I would say it is a great jacket.

Chris Van M: Great reviews. Firstgear makes quality products and this has d30 armor. I want my wife to be as safe as possible when she's riding on the back of my bike. This also keeps her warm, dry, and cool with the vents opened. She's very happy with this jacket (and matching pants) Oct 24, 2013

Sara K: Hi Margot. I busted out a centimeter tape measure and my measurements are 92 chest, 82 waist and 101 hip and the Medium Kilimanjaro fits me great. I might have been able to get away with the Small, but I have oddly large shoulders for a woman my size, and wanted room to wear fleece underneath since things get chilly where we tend to ride. I'm a bit smaller than you, but proportionally, it seems like a L or XL would work good for you. Overall, I was looking for a jacket made for fir a woman's proportions and have been really happy with it. It has a waist belt to cinch. Good luck! We ran into some adventure riders from Australia last summer. Fun bunch, you are!! Sara, Flagstaff AZ Nov 2, 2013

Scott S: Margot,
Love the jacket, but it might be tight around the hips. My measurements (with light weight seats on) are:
Chest 106cm
Waist 98cm
Hips 111cm
It is snug through the hips, loose in the chest/waist area.
I put the jacket on and measured the outside at it's max around the hip area and it was about 129-130cm.
Hope this helps.

Lila C: I'm not familiar enough with the metric system to know for sure by the measurements you provided. My hips are larger than my chest, and it fits me fine. I just followed the sizing guidelines they provided. It's a great jacket. I've ridden for hours in the rain with mine now, and it keeps me bone dry. Nov 1, 2013
