FirstGear Kilimanjaro 4.0 jacket - Is it suitable for COLD WEATHER riding???
I'm considering purchasing a Kilimanjaro 4.0 jacket for riding in Michigan's COLD riding season....and I'm wondering if it is good enough for "winter days." The FirstGear advertisment says that the jacket good for everything from "HOT riding" to "MONSOON season"....but nothing about the FREEZING COLD weather that we get up here in the north. The liner (inner jacket) seems a little lightweight. Any suggestions from personal experience would be greatly appreciated.
Consider Kilimanjaro "Air"
I have the Kilimanjaro Air jacket. Though I live in Florida, I lived in Michigan previously and know summers can get pretty hot. The "Air" is well ventilated for temps up to 90F, but the liner will keep you warm down to 50F with a short sleeved shirt under. When temps drop below that just add electric vest or additional layers. The "Air" is being discontinued, but there are plenty still around at very good prices on closeout.
Basically the same style as the regular Kilimanjaro with more venting.
