First Gear Kathmandu Jacket

Comment: After fitting the jacket locally I found a great price at Jafrum and made my first order. Great service, fast delivery and bonus bucks generated as well. The jacket runs true to size and I found that the large tall was perfect for my 6'2, 200lb frame. It's comfortable with nice features and plenty warm. I intend to purchase the mating pants next.

First Gear Kathmandu Jacket Review

Comment: Received my order today complete, as ordered, and much faster than expected. Items are exactly as described plus the fit is perfect. There will be no returns from this order! Your order support people were fantastic to deal with providing prompt and courteous responses and I couldn't be more satisfied with my first and certainly not last Jafrum experience. The quality of the Kathmandu Jacket is stellar and will provide me with years of comfortable riding!
