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

  • 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

Firstgear Women's Kilimanjaro Jacket 4.6 5 122 122
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.

Great Jacket I really like this jacket. I've got the high vis color and it really stands out. I usually wear a 2XLT from FirstGear and this jacket is just a little on the big size. The air flow is ok, but you will get warm on warm days. I was pleasantly surprised that you don't get as hot when it is really hot out. The jacket does seem to keep the hot wind from cooking you.

Great all-year jacket. Comfortable and great ventilation. I really like this jacket and I found it in the larger sizes, which isn't always easy. Jacket fits true to size, unlike a lot of other jackets I've tried. Breathability is excellent and when worn with liner removed with vents open, its great even in the heat of summer. I actually feel more comfortable (& safe) with it on than when not wearing it. Good fitting, quality gear seems to help boost a rider's confidence. Thanks Revzilla and Firstgear! August 11, 2014
Love it! At 6'4" I'm always hesitant to mail order anything with long sleeves, but after reading a few reviews and watching the revzilla video, I thought I'd give it a shot. It IS a very generous large, and the Large Tall fits in the sleeves. Jacket seems very well made, and materials are solid. Very happy with the jacket at this price point. July 28, 2014
nothing fancy Gets the job done. Happy with it. Have not tested in extreme conditions. But I do wear it daily (so far) for what that is worth. July 27, 2014
Love my First Gear Jacket This is my first jacket, and I'm very impressed. Sturdy construction, good protection and decent venting (the only minor complaint, but it isn't really designed to be worn at 90 degrees*). I've worn this in temps from 35-85 and done well. After a long search, I'm pleased with my purchase, and will definitely be getting the Kathmandu pants to match. * even at 85 degrees, this jacket is good to go, it just gets warm at stop lights.

Great Jacket for Large riders I bought this jacket because I recently put on a lot of weight and my old jacket did not fit well. I know most motorcycle jackets fit differently than other clothes, so I was hesitant to buy online. Took a chance with the sizing, as I am already a fan of FirstGear products, and the 4XL fit excellent and accommodated my on board beer storage very well. Upon receiving the jacket, I immediately embarked on a 3500KM round-trip ride to North Carolina in early May. I hit quite a few heavy rain storms in PA and NY and the jacket kept me perfectly warm and dry. My cell and wallet, which I had to remove from my tank bag and place in the pockets of the jacket, also stayed perfectly dry. My only "complaint" about the jacket, and it isn't so much a complaint really, is that the venting isn't the best in 30deg Celsius heat. I know, it was not designed for that, but I had to find one weakness..... :) July 14, 2014

Paul N: A friend's wife has this jacket and likes it. Jun 2, 2014
Rich H: Excellent women's jacket. My wife has one already, this is our second. Very versatile in varying temps with zip in liner. Cordura nylon in slide positions and some armor offer safety. Dayglo Yellow is a favorite with great versatility. Priced competitively. -Nutnfancy Feb 19, 2014
George W: After trying several jacket brands and types the First Gear was the best fit for my wife, she loves riding her own bike, and we needed a better jacket option. She really loves this jacket because of the fit and style. Nov 12, 2013
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
