Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket

Posted on: October 28th, 2013 by Road Rider MCA

Exhaustively engineered down to the seams to reach the pinnacle of comfort, durability, and multi-season functionality, the Kilimanjaro Jacket has been a rider favorite for over 15 years.

The Kilimanjaro has a solution for any elemental condition you encounter, and earns our highest marks for multi-season versatility.  The shell features Hypertex™ breathable waterproofing, and waterproof sealed zipper vents on the shoulders, underarms, and back that provide excellent direct-to-the-body airflow. The Kilimanjaro’s direct venting is quite different from the floating ventilation often found in other waterproof jackets. Many waterproof jackets have zip vents that channel air into the space between the non-waterproof outer jacket material and the built-in waterproof membrane sub-layer. Venting in these jackets does not reach the body directly, but rather warm air and moisture trapped between the membrane and outer layer is pushed or evaporates out through the zip vents. The Kilimanjaro, however, is entirely waterproof and breathable from the outside, with effective direct ventilation only a zip away.

The Kilimanjaro is contouring and comfortable, with a fit that moves with you. It features soft, thin, and flexible D3O armor in the elbows and shoulders and lightweight stretch fabric integrated around shoulder, elbow, and arm flex zones. Cinch straps around the waist and arms keep excess fabric in check. A soft and padded adjustable collar and neoprene wrist cuffs further enhance your comfort. The Kilimanjaro is sized generously, and is available in tall men’s sizes as well as a women’s version. Still, the Kilimanjaro isn’t bulky and provides an excellent fit for all shapes and sizes.
