With its exceptional fit and attention to detail the Kilimanjaro is comfortable in any weather, any season, anywhere, anytime. Battle-tested to the ends of the earth - and now in its third decade - it keeps you warm when it's cold, cool when it's hot and dry when it's wet. It's the multi-tool of motorcycle outerwear. Kilimanjaro, gear you can depend on.

Got the high vis version, and it is very bright. Love the fit. Pockets could be a little more accessible, and button closure is a little difficult with gloves on. Overall, great jacket. I don't feel so invisible anymore, although I ride like I AM invisible still.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These pants are very stretchy, and I ordered the medium and think they are still too baggy. I'm 6'1 200 lbs. They sag with the weight of the armor, unless you use the drawstring waist, and that's uncomfortable to me. Once on the bike, they are fine and I feel very protected. I got the shirt too, and like it even better.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bought the shirt and pants, and like the shirt especially. It's easy and comfortable. Only ridden with it once, because its cold and I just wear my heavy riding jacket. But I can see wearing it when it gets warmer, and just throw a light jacket over it, or a sweatshirt even. Very stretchy.
Yes, I recommend this product.
