A January Jacket

Classic Velocity

As the owner of an inexpensive 3/4 length jacket, I was impressed with its' durability over 4 years, and was prepared to declare it ready for circumnavigation of the earth. That said, the jacket had two desired areas of improvement. The first was hot weather duty. The jacket had minimal venting and was really more of a 3 season jacket. In this era of mesh jackets, that is hardly a criticism but there it is. The second area is visibility. Black and grey with no luminescent badges or piping. Both of those were liveable, but then the damage ocurred. I caught the jacket on the GS while dismounting and ripped a 4" tear in the jacket. It is repairable, but that got me looking for a year-end deal on the web.

I found a number of good deals and some impressive features for the money. I ended up selecting the First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket in a great deal. The jacket is more visible in sand and grey with luminescent piping. It has a removable liner that is designed to serve as its' own jacket, and I think it looks pretty good. It has a number of vents in front, underarm, and rear to facilitate airflow. Besides, I can take a picture in it at the base of the mountain it is named after, and it will also look great as I pass Marc Coma and Cyril Despres in the next desert stage of the Dakar......
