Waterproof Jacket Suggestions
My First Gear Kilimanjaro has finally given up and is in need of replacement. What I am looking for:

1] Similar style to the Kilimanjaro, or the newer version the Kathmandu [adv style, slightly long and roomy]

2] Waterproof

3] 3 season [liner in spring/fall, remove liner and open vents in summer]

4] $500 or less

So...what do you suggest?

*sidenote...I am considering the Aerostich Darien, even though it's almost $100 over my #4 goal

Watch ADV Rider/eBay for used Darien.

RE: Waterproof Jacket Suggestions
If you can find a closeout last years model Klim Lattitude in your size I think you would be very happy. I've had two Klim Lattitude Gore-Tex jackets (hit a deer and killed the first one) and they have been my favorite jackets. I think your on the right path if your looking for a Gore-Tex jacket with good ventilation that allows you to add your own mid layer. No more side of the road rain suit dance. If your a size large here is a nice one at a great price with Honda colors and African Twin logo. https://www.denniskirk.com/klim/honda-bl...36415L.sku I love Dennis Kirk. Many times they have items at my door in BF North Dakota the next day.
