This 2012 Kathmandu Jacket was re-designed with dual sport riders in mind.

- HYPERTEX™ Waterproof & Breathable outer shell, constructed of 420 denier rip-stop nylon and 300 denier high density nylon, durable and lightweight for ease of movement
- 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 included
- Collar closure utilizes a slider snap that allows up to 1-1/2" adjustment for a personal fit
- Integrated into the collar is an under-the-helmet rain hood to keep water from running down your neck
- 1.5 liter hydration bladder included in removable backpack
- Front left and right restraining loops for bladder tube make access easy
- Achieve maximum air flow with two - 8" vertical chest intake vents, two – 9" armpit intake vents and two - 9" vertical rear exhaust vents
- Double storm flap front with snap and hook/loop closure that covers a #8 YKK Vislon two-way main zipper to keep out the elements
- Dry Pockets will keep your stash dry – four front ones with flaps, protected by YKK #5 rubberized zippers on the chest and envelope closures on the bottom pockets
- Large rear dry pouch with 14" mouth to stow insulated liner or personal property, protected by waterproof zipper and flap with spring snaps and hook/loop closure to keep it all intact and safe from the elements
- Reflective taping front and back increases nighttime visibility
- One time adjustable waist belt with hook and loop closure
- Elbow and underarm waterproof and breathable stretch material for increased flexibility also diminishes binding
- Compression straps on the bicep and forearm adjust to fit you
- Adjustable cuff uses hook and loop closure for a custom fit
- Removable, fully insulated, thermal liner with wind blocking, adjustable, neoprene cuffs to block out the cold
- Interior pockets 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
- Jacket- to-pant 10" full conjunction zipper fits easily through liner portal and attaches to overpant

      Comments about Firstgear Kathmandu Motorcycle Jacket 2012:

      Rode from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas with this jacket and pants in December. They both worked very well. Hot / cold/ wet / dry we had it all and the Firstgear Kathmandu Motorcycle Jacket by Firstgear held up well. As usual, I fell over a few time (can't really reach the ground on my BMW GSA...). The suit held up pretty well but could be a little tougher in the elbows / knees for extreme adventure motorcycle riding (i.e. expecting to crash). I've had a lot of jackets and for the money this is a very good value.
