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

  • 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

  • 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

Firstgear Women's Kilimanjaro Jacket 4.6 5 165 165
Great Jacket! I am a first time rider and passenger. We travel a lot of back roads so wanted to make sure I was comfortable and protected. This jacket has been nothing short of perfect. It can get a tad hot when your stopped but other than that no complaints at all! July 13, 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
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
FirstGear is Quality Stuff My wife and I both purchased these jackets for cold and wet weather riding. I must say they do the job. This jacket is comfortable, warm, dry and it looks great. Tons of vents, easy adjustability, quality zippers and a very warm liner that comes out with ease. Our next trip is to Alaska to do over 2,000 miles and I have a feeling these jackets are going to stand up to that environment well. June 4, 2015
Nice, but not for warm/hot weather I've had this jacket for over 2 years and have put some miles on it. I've traveled the James Bay Highway in Quebec through some nasty thunderstorms and have ridden the north shore of Lake Superior when it was 32 degrees F out. Both times this jacket saved me. It has stayed dried and kept the rain out (I have reapplied water repellent each winter) and it has kept me warm with the liner it when it was literally freezing. It does a great job of keeping the wind out. Unfortunately, it does a great job of keeping the wind out in the summer time, too. If it's above 80 degrees this jacket is not getting put on. Even with all the vents I find my arms/elbows get hot and sweaty and it doesn't vent well through the back vents. Pros - tons of storage, lots of big pockets that are accessible while mounted. Warm with the liner. Good job of keeping out wind and rain. Has held up well considering the miles I've put on it. Cons - Good job of keeping out wind. Not a summer jacket. About me: I'm very cold natured and prefer cold weather. I live in Indiana and I ride a ST1300 (good wind protection) May 26, 2015

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

Alexander H: Hi, my wife still has and loves the Kilimanjaro. It is not much softer than when new, but the elbow and arms areas have become more supple. May 22, 2015

FRANK P: No, I'm sorry. I think it is stiff because the outer jacket is waterproof. It might not break in too much. May 21, 2015

A shopper asked: My husband has a man's XL and I tried it on. It seemed like an o.k. fit but the shoulders were slightly too broad and the sleeves too long. Is there a women's size that would be comparable, but fix these size issues? Mar 2, 2015

Ray B: I purchased the Kilimanjaro Jacket for both my wife & myself.
I am 5' 10" tall and 175lbs. Men's Medium. Fits great.

My wife is 5' 1" & 110 lbs. Women's Small. Fits great as well.
Both jackets have room for additional fleece if needed.
Sleeves seem to be well adjusted for gender specific sizing.
Yellow is bright and looks great but hard to keep clean.

FRANK P: I found the jacket to run true to size. The size description given on the Revzilla website was correct for me. A men's jacket would naturally have broader shoulders and longer arms. It might also be a little longer in the body than a women's size. I think you would be happy with a women's jacket. Mar 2, 2015
