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
  • 2 Year Limited Warranty

Firstgear Women's Kilimanjaro Jacket 4.6 5 150 150
Great coat for the money Got this coat for my wife she wanted something lighter then her leather coat and more versatile this should work fine. the design of the coat vents, pockets, padding, etc. are all usable and adjustable. April 2, 2015
okay, but overpriced for the level of craftsmanship I bought this to replace a similar product from Joe Rocket. I chose to change brands because many reviews said that the Joe Rocket quality had decreased of late. I greatly regretted the decision, however. This brand showed some very common themes. 1.) good quality materials. 2.) poor forms (the shape of the materials before composing the articles) resulting in odd proportions / fits relative to a normal body. 3.) very poor craftsmanship. I live in Tokyo, so I had my family forward this shipment to me. This jacket arrived with 1 torn seem in the shoulder, on the interior. Another seem tore loose within a month of use. I also had seems come loose on the over pants (same brand). Weatherproofing was okay. The jacket became heavy after short rides in substantial rain, but this is normal in my experience with other brands. But it kept me dry, and it was usable down to about 35 degrees for rides of up to about 30 minutes. This jacket has a poorer fit, fewer features, and a MUCH higher price tag when compared to my previous jacket. It does, however, use better zippers, which is appreciated. Overall, I would not recommend this brand. April 19, 2015
Great Jacket with protection I am 6'2, 240lbs and ordered a Large Tall. It fits snug but adjustable and comfortable. I normally wear a XL Tall in jackets. I liked the removable liner for colder days and without for warmer days (yet to have in the NW). I have a cut that fits over the jacket so venting is not the best but I feel protected from the weather, rain and wind. No leaking has been found. I wold recommend this jacket for having the features of a more expensive jacket. I ride a '12 Street Glide. April 13, 2015
Great jacket so far I've only had this hi-vis colored jacket for a couple of weeks or so, but have ridden in one light and one heavy rain. I stayed dry in both, so that is great. The fit is very good. I normally wear an XL and that is what this new jacket is and it fits perfectly. The hi-vis is bright, for sure (a good thing). It does vent pretty well, but down here in Florida the jacket gets warm quickly when you stop moving, especially once the temperature gets above 80 F or so. The Kilimanjaro is very comfortable to wear. I can see wearing it around a campground on a cool evening and if it gets cooler one can always quickly add the liner for more warmth. So far, anyway, this jacket is meeting and maybe even exceeding my expectations. I wanted a comfortable, waterproof, breathable jacket for long distance touring for a reasonable price and I think this jacket is all that and more. If my experience with it down the road requires it I will add another review stating as much. April 13, 2015
Great jacket Both my wife and daughter love their jackets. Top notch. The only small complaint is not enough airflow on really hot days. Other than that, Everything else about it is great. February 9, 2015
Tight around the neck. Love the look and feel of the jacket. I'm 6'8" 240 and love the tall size. The only problem is the neck is adjustable but the largest setting is too tight to snap around my neck. I wish it would be a inch or 2 bigger. March 23, 2015
My new favorite jacket There's not a lot I can say about this that hasn't been said already. After scouring a number of forums and websites for a nice year round riding jacket with a Hi-Viz option and seeing this repeatedly come up as a top choice for a reasonable price I decided to to give it a go myself. As a 6'7" (200cm), 300lbs. (136kg) guy I found the XLT to fit me perfectly. Nice length in the sleeves and torso with multiple straps on the arms for a snug fit. In the few weeks I've owned this jacket I've been on a few rides in ~40²F temps down some shaded back roads. The first time I got a bit warm with the liner in but not too warm, so if you like to be nice and toasty while riding this will definitely fit the bill. After taking the liner out the next day I was cool, but not cold, and very comfortable. Will definitely recommend this to my friends and look forward to many many miles in this jacket. March 16, 2015
Great-fitting jacket Nice jacket for all-around use (with the exception of hot summer days in California). Nice features and doesn't make me feel like the Michelin Man. January 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

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
