• 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!

    MSF ranges never had the bike I always wanted when I started.

    What they did have never would have changed my mind either.
