Firstgear Riding Jacket with armor. Size: 4XL. Condition: Used, no rips or tears (save a purposeful cut inside the sleeves)

I have used this jacket for years and well over 100,000 miles. It is similar (but not identical) to this jacket https://www.revzilla.com/motorcy…/firstgear-kathmandu-jacket

The sleeves have an air dam designed to stop air from blowing up the sleeve. For me, this made the jacket un-usable in the summer so I cut the air dam out. The jacket is claimed to be waterproof by Firstgear, if you ride for several hours it will soak through. I do not carry rain gear, just zip up and keep going. All zippers and snaps are in working order. All velcro is in working order.

Some dark patches have discolorisation from the sun and being soaked in Oxy-Clean. On the pockets and cuffs, there is some discolourisation (stains?) that do not come out with soaking. Hard to see in photos.

In my opinion, the jacket size runs a bit small. At 6'3", 350 pounds the 4XL fit with plenty of room for a jacket liner and even an additional layer.

Why am I selling? Two reasons. 1) I lost 110 pounds, 2) my sister got me a new Firstgear jacket as a gift last December. The new one is a 2XL and fits me great with room for a liner. The XL fits but would be tight with a liner.

It is not a Stich or a Klim but it can be yours for $120 plus shipping paid via Paypal.
