Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket The Flagship jacket in the Firstgear line, often imitated and never duplicated, it's the jacket that others aspire to be. If you could only have one jacket - this is it. 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. Features Classic fit A more tailored fit Hypertex waterproof and breathable outer shell made of 400 denier nylon and 100 seam sealed construction provides a barrier to keep the elements outside of the jacket. To resist abrasion, shoulders and elbows reinforced with 640 denier nylon Fully adjustable D3O T5 CE Armor in the shoulders and elbows delivers the same protection as standard CE foam armor, but is thinner and more flexible, resulting in a more comfortable, flexible fit - EVA dense foam back pad When warm, supply fresh air direct to the body using two- 6 shoulder vents, Two 9 pit vents and two 9-1/2 back exhaust vents ---shoulder vents can be held open by folding the cover inward to hook and loop closure Main closure held in place by a two way #8 YKK Vislon zipper, shielded from the elements by a double storm flap with rain gutter and secured using spring snaps inside the placket for easy access is a security pocket with a red slider for increased visibility Collar closure utilizes a slider snap that allows up to 1-1/2 adjustment for a personal fit Integrated on the front chest are two cargo storage pockets to secure your stuff, protected from moisture by #5 YKK rubberized zippers More storage in the two lower front cargo pockets seam sealed pocket bags and an envelope opening, closure uses hook and loop plus there are two front side pockets protected by #5 YKK rubberized zippers Compression straps on the bicep and forearm adjusts to fit you Integrated into the collar is an under-the-helmet rain hood to keep water from running down your neck One time adjustable waist belt with hook and loop closure - sleeve cuffs can be adjusted to fit you Stretch material used in the shoulder, arm and elbow joints add flexibility and is waterproof and breathable Removable, insulated thermal liner with wind blocking, adjustable, neoprene cuffs Interior pocketing in all Firstgear jackets are in the same location, whether the liner is in or out. On the left side, chest high is a mobile device pocket with flap closure using hook and loop to secure On the right side is a cargo pocket that is 12 wide and 8 tall to hold whatever you need for the adventure ahead Extra wide reflective taping on front, arms and back for improved night visibility Jacket- to-pant 10 full conjunction zipper fits easily through liner portal HiViz color Jacket made of polyester for best colorfast results - Nylon Day Glo has a tendency to release this color 2 Year Limited Warranty

Hi-Viz great in daytime. Strips could show up better low light and in dark.

 Sidi Sport Rain Boots
Sidi Sport Rain Boots
Sidi, continuously researching new technological solutions to enhance rider safety, is proud to present the new 2008 Sport Rain boot. With Sidis great style, feel, support and quality there are no finer performance off road boots in the world. Non-Bootie Designs Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome add to the boots thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the riders performance and comfort. Lining Each boot is lined throughout with lightweight perforated Teflon treated fabric in order to allow moisture to breath out to the Lorica outer and dry quickly with no mold build up in the long term. Additionally the inner ankle area of all Strada series boots are fully lined with Sidis own formula of perforated closed thousand-air cell memory foam. A totally breathable lining system. Composite Insole Sidi is the only manufacture to use a composite insole that is anatomically shaped to the rider. A cushioned liner is provided that can be removed if the rider desires a more roomy fit. Sidi does not use steel shanks riveted to its insole like most manufactures, details such as this enable Sidi boots to enjoy a multi year service life versus the competitors multi month lifespan as over time, a steel shank can deteriorate, rust and fracture exposing the rider to injury. Lorica Boot's outer is fully constructed with Lorica, a composite micro fiber material created from strands less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. When injected with special resins, these fibers act like natural leather skin, but with the addition of better strength, softer texture, lighter weight and better moisture protection. Lorica is also highly resistant to abrasion - yet it still breathes - with more than three million pores per square centimeter. Easy to maintain, Lorica doesnt stain and cant be scratched and offers, reduced weight, more flexibility and more feel than leather racing boots. Features A mid height boot Membrane equipped to add a water resistant yet breathable barrier between the elements and the riders feet Lorica outer construction Perforated Teflon treated nylon lining Composite inner sole Removable arch support Internal heel protection Internal ankle protection Internal toe protection Zipper and Velcro closure system Non-slip lug sole Lorica toe shift pad Double stitched in all high stress areas Reflective heel panel Thousand air cell padded shin area Quilted calf area for comfort
