Kitanica Mark I For Enduro Jacket

I have a Firstgear KathMandu and I love it

But I'm a jacket freak and I just picked up a Kitanica Mark 1

Before anyone screams at the price I was attracted to it because of the 1000 Cordura and the athletic cut


The material thickness makes my KathMandu feel like a wind breaker

I know their expensive but I wanted to see if anyone else is riding with one

Certainly looks beefy. How is your maneuverability? And I'm assuming it's a winter only coat, no venting?

Athletic cut? I looked at fitment and they said measure your chest or belly, whichever is bigger . Is it fitted? I generally have a hard time finding a fit in my shoulders that doesn't leave way too much material in the belly area. European cuts are too narrow in the shoulders, American cuts are to generous in the stomach.

I definitely like the look of this one, thanks for pointing it out.

I like the cut

I have a 46 inch chest and a 34 inch waist and I can use the waist adjustments to bring in the waist even further

Lotsa room in shoulders and arms and with the liner out it will make a good fall and spring jacket

Hey... it's a "tactical" jacket. The more buckles the bigger your wang...

Waterproof?

135.00 for the liner?

My wedding band cost less, and it makes sammiches, does dishes, and came with a vagina.

Sharp looking though, I love tacticool.

So far I'm really impressed with the jacket

Heavy duty is not the word for it

This is the best made jacket I have seen
