    Yellow dust

    Bought this jacket a few years ago. Fit has been good in large size. Has always been dry so dedicated rain suit has been unnecessary. Only problem is that the foam lining inside jacket has disintegrated and comes out through the perforations in little yellow specks all over my shirt. Have stopped wearing it although the rest of the jacket is in perfectly good shape.

    Foam Liner Quit

    Very comfortable jacket, good fit. I would have liked sleeve vents as it gets hot in the summer. Very dry - I quit carrying my rainsuit if I wore this one. Only problem - which has caused me to quit wearing - is that the foam lining has disintegrated and comes out through the perforations inside all over my shirt in little orange specks. For the price, I won't buy another one.

    Excellent Touring Jacket

    I recently wore this jacket, along with a pair of Firstgear HT Overpants, on a 3,000 mile trip. The jacket/pants combination kept me completely dry during the rain that I encountered. I'm 6'0" and 200 lbs. I purchased the large and it fits great.

    Kilimanjaro Jacket

    This is a replacement for a 7 year old jacket not made by First Gear. The jacket fits great, the collar doesn't chafe and there's plenty of pockets. Although I don't understand the need for 2 huge breast pockets, more venting there would be better. Somehow on our recent trip my wife was bone dry and I was soaking wet, we both have Kilimanjaro jackets and my bike has more protection from the elements. I would still buy this jacket again, it is well made.

    Last Frontier Rider

    My spouse bought this jacket for me in 2007 when I started riding in Alaska and it has performed beyond my expectations. Since then I have purchased a second Kilimanjaro jacket and have been equally pleased. My first jacket did seem a little tight through the forearms. This jacket vents well when the temps are high, and in the early and late riding season and the temps drop the jacket liner makes the rides a lot more enjoyable. Thanks First Gear for a great product!

    Warm, dry, versatile

    I'm 5'10" 175 lbs. I normally wear Medium or 42 in jackets. With the liner in, the medium fits pretty good. Without the liner, I have to cinch the side straps. Plenty of ventilation when it gets warm. The rear exhaust is a major plus when the front vents are open. The rear vents help take care of the "balloon effect". I've been in 30 degree weather with just the liner and a t shirt. Kept me warm. Also kept me dry after a 45 minute ride in steady rain.

    Not very waterproof

    I bought the jacket because I was in need of some real rain gear. The other day I put it to the test and I can say that it pretty-much failed. After 40 minutes, my t-shirt was soaked in the shoulders and down the front from the main zipper. Perhaps with the waterproof liner it would have been better, but as it was 80 degrees, it was just too warm for that.

    One happy banana

    The bright yellow color of my Kilimanjaro is getting more compliments that I could have imagined. A plain black leather jacket might be badass, but never got me as much attention. If there is a problem with this Jacket, its as much a problem with me. I'm not yet accustomed to having so many freakin' pockets!

    Very poor fit; Not very warm.

    I bought this jacket from a competitor last summer. The listing said they ran big so I ordered a Small. I couldn't get it on. I exchanged it for a Medium. This one fit (barely). With the liner in, you can barely get your arms out once it's on. It fit snugly in the chest. Sadly however, the collar is so big that, even when snapped shut, air channels down into the torso and you FREEZE if the weather is cold. The liner by itself isn't very warm either.

    Two year review

    After two years of almost daily use this jacket has held up well. Still keeps me completely dry in down pours. Fits well and is very warm with liner. I ride down to the mid 20's in winter and have been fine in this gear. I will usually wear till the mid 80's and then switch to mesh, but have worn this jacket in 100+ weather and tolerated it. The zippers are not the best quality and tend to stick. The Velcro is the major problem with this jacket, I started replacing strips after 4 months.

    Actually 2 jackets

    With the liner, fit is perfect. Without liner, jacket is a little large. Only worn in hot weather so far, but found venting to be every effective. Really like how fit can be adjusted in so many ways. GREAT JACKET.

    Help With Return

    Jacket had faulty zipper. Returned for credit, but instead ultimately received it back stating repair was made. In the meantime, I ordered replacement - now I have two! Need authorization for return of this jacket.

    kilimanjaro

    Excellent jacket. I'm 6'2" 180 lbs. And I got the tall large. Seems a little on the trenchcoat side, and I wish the snap closures on the front were magnetic like other jackets (like the a* jackets). Other than that. Very nice jacket and looks awesome
