I find that if you're not too picky you can buy some great quality for relatively little money. I picked up a Fieldsheer Adventure jacket for $100 at Motorcycle Closeouts along with the Mercury pants for another $100. For the price of less than the cost of just the jacket at retail, I got a set with lots left over for a helmet, gloves & boots.
The gear is so good that you really can't go wrong. Even if I made a huge mistake, which I didn't, the cost to more often will still be less. Don't get me wrong, there's some really cool stuff out there, but the real differences are not that dramatic.
Let he who speaks the truth be given a fine horse -- for he will need it to flee.
