My dealer, Capitol BMW in Raleigh, has a 20% discount on BMW clothing, so I purchased the Tourance 2 jacket to use as a winter jacket. I had such a good experience with the BMW Airshell Jacket for summer use, that I decided to purchase a winter jacket made by BMW.
The Tourance 2 Jacket lists at $449 and with the discount, that made it $359. That seemed to be a reasonable price, at least for BMW gear, so I made the purchase.
I told the owner that I appreciated him offering the 20% discount. I try to support my local dealer, with service, accessories and clothing purchases, so they will continue to stay in business.
I have owned other riding gear from First Gear, Olympia and Joe Rocket, but the BMW gear, although more expensive, seems to be a very high quality product. If the price is comparable, I will buy the BMW brand.
It's still too hot in NC to test the jacket, but I will post a review when I get some cold weather riding experience with it.
