Question First Gear Granite?

I was just looking at the Motorcyclecloseouts site, and noticed a "first Gear Granite Nylon Motorcycle Jacket. MSRP $190, Their price $69. Seems pretty good. Looking at the First Gear site to get a bit more info, I can't find the "Granite" jacket. Anyone here know more about it?

Yes, I bought one last year to use as a loaner jacket. It is either a cheap or earlier version of the Kilimanjaro. The cut is short, both in the body length and sleeves and the liner is very lightweight and doesn't go down very far. The body armour is pretty thin foam. It probably is waterproof but I have never tested it. It would be a good buy for someone thinking about buying a Kili in the short size and wanting a jacket to wear in moderate weather.
