It came pretty new with the bike when I got it. But I think they were around $70 when I was looking for that pic online yesterday.

Almost three years later I finally purchased a Perrini Full Body Armor CE Approved All Black Motorcycle Jacket for $80.00. This body armor easily goes on but it's hell taking it off, the elbow and shoulder pads feel like thick plastic, but I do feel confident that if I was to take a fall that this jacket will protect the areas covered by the padding. In the picture I have a red arrow pointing to the back support of the jacket. The lower part of that back support could annoy you while riding because it tends to rub a little on the lower back. so far I'm happy with it but in the future I will definitely go try one of these on before buying it from online.

That looks very Mad-Maxian.

I was going to say Dark Knight, but Mad Max works too.

I don't know that you can get this jacket anymore, but I've had it for several years now and I love it. Good length for upright riding, zip-out rain liner and insulation liner, plenty of pockets and breathable when the vents are opened. The pocket across the back is especially useful for items like maps, rain gear, etc. I'm a fan of Rev'it stuff.
