Clearance/closeouts, Craigslist, eBay, and friends.
The Dainese is from a craigslist ad ("like new" and looks it from the pics). I'm meeting him this weekend to try it out.
The GP Plus - there is one in my size lightly used on eBay, ditto on Craig's List.
The SP-1 Closeout/Clearance - sizes are limited, and in my size I can only find it in blue (which would be my last choice, but that's still fine), and I've seen those from $162 brand new. You can check out the various big sites (STG, CycleGear, Revzilla, Motorcycle Superstore and others) and you can look it up on amazon.com and look under "New and Used" and see other vendors' clearance items there.
For example, I got my Alpinestars SP-1 gloves, brand new, for $51 on Amazon used and new. And the store I bought from had it in their own website in the clearance section for $5 more than they were selling it through Amazon. They only had 2XL for that price, but that's my size. Some other vendors had them in other sizes from $55 and up.
But, if you can find your size, and you are flexible on colorways, you can get some really fantastic deals on brand new stuff on closeout! Remember it's winter time and the jackets I'm looking at are Perforated leather.
One of my local stores has 1 Alpinestars Indy on closeout for $299 (Revzila had them in a few sizes a month or two ago for $250, which is a great deal on an Indy), and my local store has the GP Plus Air mesh jacket brand new on closeout for $129. I would have bought that one as an extra if it were either my size, or small enough for a female. Unfortunately I think it was a size too small or large for me, I can't remember.
what store has the air mesh, I might just go grab it if its my size
