We've looked all over trying to figure out why this adventure riding jacket is being offered BY CORTECH for $65-$72 ( depending on the size.) REVZILLA has it for $325. Powersport Superstore has it for $179. And several other like Chapparel etc. offer it as well-- at price points north of $170.
We noticed that the places it's offered outside of Cortech direct sales have very limited sizes available. I can only speculate that the reason for this is that it's being discontinued and Cortech is thus no longer supplying these other merchants.
Whatever the case this translates to a smoking opportunity for you and I.
Currently in Cortech's Amazon listing ' Cortech Men's Sequoia XC Adventure Touring Motorcycle Jacket ' all sizes seem to be in full supply and I am sincerely thinking about picking one up. The Sequoia XC has been around for awhile and the internet is FULL of wonderful reviews and tales of it's performance so I'll spare you that here.
Here it is below with it's specifications so you can determine if it's a good fit for you:
Cortech Men's Sequoia XC Adventure Touring Motorcycle Jacket...
Shell constructed of abrasion-resistant 600 denier Carbolex, ripstop material and 1680 denier ballistic polyester with a removable waterproof and breathable
Sleeve pocket, two zippered hand warmer pockets, and a rear bellows pocket with incorporated fanny pack provide mega storage
Phoslite 360º reflective piping, black reflective sleeve panels, and Cortech’s reflective rear triangle for increased nighttime visibility
Removable CE approved armor at the elbows, shoulders and an articulated triple density back protector
Optional modular backpack/2-liter hydration pack integrates into the jacket design for better support and stability (sold separately-I DON'T THINK THIS PRODUCT IS STILL AVAILABLE)
Price at the time and date of this post: $65 - $72 depending on size ordered.
MATCHING PANTS APPEAR TO ONLY BE AVAILABLE IN LARGE AND EXTRA LARGE
As always thanks for supporting our research on the products we sell through our Amazon Storefront. There is so much contention out there in regard to affiliate link sales. What many people fail to realize ( that causes the contention ) is that there is no real money being made by anyone but the seller. I'm sure Amazon Influencers have found ways to do well in the program. As for us it's just a pittance here and there that has never warranted the time and effort it takes by any stretch of the imagination. It's just plain old not why we do it. If it were we'd of checked it off as a failed financial prospect long ago.
