Just bought the Jaunt2 jacket and HT overpant. Fit and finish are very good. Have not ridden in the rain but rode in 25 degree weather with liners in and long johns and found them to be warm enough.

Love this jacket. Really lets lots of air into the body, have had four other mesh jackets including an Olympia, TourTech, Joe Rocket and another model of First Gear and this this one is the best so far. I also like the fact that this jacket has almost no other colors other than the hi-viz so that it is more visible than any other that I have had as well. I did add more and better armor in the back and the pocket accepted it without modification. I have not had this jacket long enough to know how well it will hold up over the long run. I ordered the 2XLT and the length of the arms and waist are perfect. The arms are just a bit too large in diameter, but that can be just me. I will modify the cuffs so that I can get them into the gauntlets easier. The jacket was a bit more costly than others that I had considered, but much less than the Olympia.

I am on my third Kilimanjaro jacket having worn out the first two over many years. The jacket fits and performs great providing good abrasion protection and eliminating the need for a separate rain jacket. I just wore my Kilimanjaro on a hot, two week summer ride in Europe. I stayed dry when it rained and the venting kept me comfortable enough in the heat. The cold weather liner that come with the jacket is actually good enough to use in the winter. Along with my heated vest I can ride comfortably throughout the winter. Two things I miss from the earlier versions of this jacket: the older model jackets had a easy to use Velcro neck closure rather than a snap like this one. And I miss the wide reflective panel on the back that's now been replaced with a thin strip of reflective material. I'd also like to see additional vents added to the front of the jacket -- perhaps alongside the large chest pockets.

I just finished riding the Colorado BDR with this jacket, my riding buddy did the same. This jacket did a great job! When I returned I washed it and it was back to new condition. Unbeatable for the money and I really don't know what a more expensive jacket would accomplish. Solid rain protection. Highly recommend!

Great fit, I am 6'7" tall and the 2xl has good arm length. Nice light jacket for the warmer weather.

I'm 6'4" and 210 pounds. My sleeve length is 37 inches. I did not expect that the large tall would fit me, but based on other reviews, I decided to go with that size, and I'm glad that I did. These guys made a very comfy jacket that has the protection that you hope yo won't need, but glad to have it on. I'm satisfied with the value this jacket offers.
