First Gear Kilimanjaro Jacket
« on: February 01, 2019, 05:33:21 pm »
I’ve used my Kilimanjaro riding in high 20 degree weather and almost didn’t need the Gerbing jacket fired up. It saved my the other night when I was shoveling off a couple inches of new snow from the driveway. I didn’t realize that there was a patch of black ice in one area. Faster than I could react I went down on my elbow and then hip. If it wasn’t for the padded elbows I believe I would have some real damage.
Consider ATGATT when working in the snow :). I may even consider wearing my helmet next time and having the Bluetooth for tunes and emergency calls would be a plus. :motonoises:

:-\ :rotflmao: :rotflmao:  Bet that would get the neighbors attention! :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:  Where I live, it would probably get you on the front page of the paper!  Might be safer though. :)
