Great deal Kilimanjaro 5.0 jackets....$109

Hopefully I am not breaking any forum rules...New Enough has a killer deal on Firstgear Kilimanjaro 5.0 jackets....$109 This is only select colors for this price but I still think a great deal. Heck we ride Strom's and are generall more interested in form over function so the color may not make a difference. I actually wish the yellow were on sale too.

Just ordered the gray/purple an hour ago. What a deal! They wouldn't be my first choice of colors but who cares at that price.

Don't wear it while riding the Orange DL650, you're colors going to clash. On the safe side you won't be mistaken for a gang member.:lol1:

I ordered the wine colored one. I've had a Joe Rocket Ballistic 1.0 for years and finally decided to replace it. Was never waterproof, and I've sewn it up maybe a dozen times, but held up in some dirt crashes okay.

I was going to get a Fieldsheer Adventure jacket from Motorcycle Closeouts for $160 shipped, when I got the e-mail from New Enough about this one and went for it at the last minute.

I have an older Kilimanjaro jacket, nice product, perfect for Strom riders.

$109 is great, too bad about the colours, can't stand either.

Both colors in XL indicate "more stock soon". We'll see if I get an e-mail indicating new stock... I'm sure my Fieldsheer mesh jacket will be a little cool tomorrow morning at 50 degrees.

I've got the exact same jacket, but purchased mine a year ago (not for that price though!). They are great jackets and definitely worth it.

Once you factor in the price of a pimp cane and feathered hat to go along w/ the purple one though, the savings are gone.

Good deal, I am still into my Olympia closeout from last year though. I am checking with my wife to see if she can dig Grey/Purple. . .
