• First Gear Kiliminjaro Air Mesh Jacket

    So, I'm not a huge leather person, and while I was shopping for my jacket, I was offered the FG KJ Air Jacket. Overall, I love it. It has a mesh overcoat and a windproof and waterproof removable liner The jacket is great down to about 30 degrees, and with the removable liner it's capable in warm weather riding as well.

    It's a 3/4 length jacket, so depending on your bike, it MAY bunch. I am 6'3", so it bunches a little bit, but due to my height I need that extra little bit of length.

    As I mentioned, overall it is a great jacket. There are some downfalls unfortunately. 1) Cheap zippers. I've broken the main zipper already and I am pretty pissed, but it still works ok. 2) It's decent in cold weather riding, but there is kind of a draft in the back where the liner meets the shell.

    I would highly recommend the jacket if you can get it on sale. I paid 250 for it, and while it was well worth it, in retrospect, I wouldn't pay more than 200 for it. Enjoy your ride!

    Low power with the bike not running so you don’t drain the battery if you leave the ignition on for 10 minutes.
