Kilimanjaro Men's Motorcycle ArmoredMt. Kilimanjaro is an extreme mountain environment in Tanzania. The Firstgear Men's Kilimanjaro Waterproof Jacket is a jacket designed for extreme motorcycling conditions. If you spend much time around touring and adventure motorcyclists, certain jackets tend to come up in conversation. Premium and extremely pricey jackets like those made by Aerostich are always part of the conversation. However, sooner or later some experienced rider will mention the tried and true Kilimanjaro. This is for good reason -- the jacket simply works well.

The Kilimanjaro is constructed of a Hypertex waterproof and breathable outer shell made of high density 600 denier polyester. It also includes a removable inner jacket liner. It does include CE armor in the arms and shoulders, but only a foam back pad. Many riders insert CE approved back armor as well. The jacket's cooling duties go to two 9" chest intake vents, two 8" armpit intake vents, and a 13" rear exhaust vent.

Function definitely trumps style for serious touring riders, but the latest incarnation of the Kilimanjaro line has a nice, clean look. Another aspect vital to adventure and touring riders is storage. The Kilimanjaro has a plethora of waterproof pockets both inside the shell and on the outside. Finally, the jacket has the touring rider's preferred ¾ length design for increased coverage.

There is a reason a jacket becomes popular with serious mileage riders -- that reason is that it does everything well. The Firstgear Kilimanjaro fits the bill.
