First Gear Killi Jacket

Postby Amy4900_Deleteme » Sun Aug 24, 2008 4:51 pm

I bought the First Gear Killi jacket--women's--and I absolutely love it. Fantastic jacket with good design and safety features. I recently purchased the Mesh-Tex women's pants to go with and am impressed with the quality as well. I bought both online.

I am looking for suggestions for a good pair of all around gloves--anyone have any ideas?

First gear has a new mens jacket, think it was called Katahdin, that looks GREAT, but alas, no womens. They do have in womens a line called TPG that looks SWEET! First Gear, as a company, is my absolute favorite. They truly support riders. I believe that aerostich does as well. I am not saying that others don't, just not to my knowledge.

My first textile jacket was a Kili that I wore for a lot of years and loved. Tim's wife wears it now! My most favorite jacket of all time is FG - my leather that my ashes will be kept in after I die :lol:

As for gloves, there is no such thing as all around gloves. That is if you meant all season. I have tons of gloves and just bought two more pairs at Battleys yesterday (review forthcoming after I've had a chance to wear 'em a little). I would suggest you go with women's though unless you've got big mitts!

I think you need a good pair of summer gloves, good pair of winter gloves and then some in between ones. I don't know if your mittens are as small as mine. Actually, they aren't thin, just really little - men's small is way too big. Women's small or sometimes medium does me right - when you can find them. Which can be a challenge. Battley had a decent selection and Drew was very helpful! The folks at Bob's are usually helpful as well. Busy Saturday afternoons wouldn't be the best time if you want to spend a lot of time looking and asking questions.

Then there's heated gloves....

Go to the picnic next weekend and ask some of the ladies here to bring a variety of their gloves for you to look at. Sorry I won't be here to share mine with you.

Good luck!

Held offers some gloves in smaller, female sizes. My wife picked up a pair from Bob's last year. Be forewarned, Held pricing is very "German". Scott

Thanks Scott & Kitty--Kitty I will be at the Finger Lakes Rally this weekend and will definitely ask around there...
Yes Scott--that German "pricing" is steep--not bad if the products match in quality and durability

Something happened with her account when the board had a siezure one day a few weeks back and I had to recreate her entire account. She's on the board as Amy4900 now and all seven her old posts are still in tact, just under the old name, which I had intended to delete. But since she's got this thread here, I'll probably just leave it and let it continue to creep you all out.
