Well I have been shopping around on motorcyclecloseouts.com and I have come across so many leather jackets/pants from Gericke on closeout. Are they worth buying or are they considered one of the cheaper brands? Any info on this company will help me outt!

Gericke quality?

I have a Gericke Urban Warrior (with Speed hump) and it's great. Never crash tested but the leather feels good once broken in and it's got CE armor. Can't go wrong man if you got a deal.

Gotta "me too" this thread. I've got a Gericke jacket that I had a light spill in. It held up great, with only very minor damage. I'm still wearing it. I later bought two sets of pants and a summer textile Gericke jacket too. Good stuff at a low price.

tested mine! burned through a portion of the design leather - the extra piece sown unto the jacket leather - on the right back shoulder. however after a FEW spills that is the worst of it.

You might also look at the Firstgear S-Pilot jacket on that site if they have any left in your size, it's nice. Whatever you get I'd look for a combo with at least a 3/4 length waist zipper not just the little ones in the back.

Gericke is good. Tested out my urban warrior leather in a lowside, barely a mark on the jacket and not a scratch on me.

Only problem that I have seen is that the zipper pull is lightweight and it broke off after only a couple of months. It's nothing a pair of pliers and some wire didn't fix, just a hassle.

jacket is guaranteed for 10yrs. send it back in the off-season [if they pay for postage]
