My jacket was the first piece of gear that I acquired, and I based my entire kit around it (including the bike!). I purchased it 2nd hand on ebay after not being able to find anything in the shops that wasn't largely road-coloured. Some poor bloke had bought it for his girlf on special at 800 clams, but she had "flown off on her broomstick", So I bought from him for $400 after checking at P.S. that the size was purrrrrfect for me. It still had the tags in and everything 8-[ But it is an older model, and it doesn't have any reflectivity - hence the mod.
