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
  • Interior pocketing in all Firstgear jackets are in the same location, whether the liner is in or out. 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 5 105 105
New Passenger Review I just started riding as a passenger with my boyfriend and wanted to get gear that fit me for greater comfort. This jacket is nicely adorned with lots of pockets, D3 pads in the shoulder and arm, and has a nice zip in/out full sleeve liner. There are vents and pockets everywhere. I am very happy with this jacket and get compliments wearing it. My criticisms are: 1) The neck size is too small when I have a turtle neck under. I manage this by wearing a gator over the collar in cold weather, but it would be nice to have greater "travel" of the neck zip (I may get this altered to have more flexibility). 2) The pockets are small. I guess this is because the jacket is fitted and a small size, but the front hip pockets are a bit difficult to access. The chest pockets are great! March 23, 2014
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

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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
