Looking to purchase gear within next week, need help finding jacket small enough

Well recently I have been searching the web for some better prices on gear, so far I have come up with:

Exo-1000 Helmet ~$300
Axo Primato II Boots ~$140
Alpinestar Gloves (Carbon Knuckles/Mesh Vent) ~$55


Still can't really find anything good for a jacket (Pants, not even going to try for a while. Cyclist and big thighs plus small waist is a horrible combo).

Anyone have some suggestions on jackets? Trying to keep with a all white theme even though I know it is going to be a pain to keep clean. Looking also for Textile for Summer.

This is what I really like but they don't have a small =/
Shift Racing Textile Jacket (White/Black)

p.s
Think I should consider a bigger jacket? My chest size is a 33" and sleeve is 28" (to wrist).

Thanks!

check out www.motorcyclecloseouts.com

they're pretty cheap, and usually only have the really small, or really big sizes left for stupid cheap.

also, check out Motorcycles Unlimited... they guarantee fit. not sure if that holds true for just a jacket, but i would at least call em and find out.

good luck man!

Thanks! I might go to Motorcycles Unlimited and check out some gear there and maybe buy stuff there also. They are right near 1960 right? Also, that site is awesome.

I do agree with that and I used to have a 44 jacket from Alpinestar I loved but looking to not spend $500 on a new jacket until Fall.

Been browsing eBay a little for that Shift Racing Avenger jacket.

I got the shift Backdraft jacket, and I love it. I'm not sure of the differences between the Avenger.

They have the Backdraft in white. It might be worth checking out. I think I got mine on eBay for around $100 shipped. Saved me $50 from everywhere else.

Heres the white one:

I JUST literally ran across that jacket on Link and I thought it might be the same.
How is it comfort wise? I am mostly looking to commute in this jacket to school go to class and then come back while I am not planning on taking it off much except in class.

I have the Scorpion Stinger Jacket in white leather. Its perforated and flows air pretty good. $163 for a leather jacket is a great deal as well. FYI, I have the Primatto II boots (in white) as well. They are awesome boots for the price!

Thanks for letting me know on the boots! I wore Sidi Vertigo Boots last time I rode and those were amazing but not quite worth the price at the moment. I will look into that jacket though.
