Olympia makes some good stuff, IMHO. I've been checking out the Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 jacket for Cindy. She has the matching pants and I thought it would be better to buy the set.

Warning on Olympia - its sized for the US market, so its a full cut. Cindy is petite, so the Olympia pants I ordered for her were too large. She was happy with her Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 pants.

I've had good luck with Revzilla in the past.

Yardracer, LoneStar BMW carries the Olympia gear so you could try stuff on if you make it down to Austin. I'd call just to make sure they have the model jacket that you are looking for in the sizes you think you might need though.

As of a few days ago, fort worth BMW was selling Olympia stuff at 30-50% off. Just a heads up.

Well, check to see if I'm wandering around in store. I'm going to be in setting up a couple of printers and a wireless router. Oh, and potentially breaking the whole BMW parts ordering process.

True. It's plenty warm and fits well. No real complaints. However, I haven't scraped it across the asphalt (yet?) so no abrasion resistance observations.
