FirstGear Kilimanjaro jacket on closeout!

A buddy of mine picked up this jacket when he purchased his FJ-09, it was about $340.00 at the dealer where he bought it, and he loves it.  I tried it out on a ride and liked it too, so I caught it on sale at Revzilla for $270.00, which was $50.00 off regular price (currently $320.00).  I have put some more miles on it and really like this jacket, it is the 2012 model.  The new 2016 model is out (re-designed) and is $400.00 at Revzilla.  
Well, I just got an email notice from BikeBandit.com that they have this jacket (2012) on closeout for $190.00 - IMHO this is a steal!  Here are some links:

I have the old 2012 version of the Woman's Kilimanjaro Jacket and it's a great "ALL" Season jacket.
The new one looks pretty spiffy!!

I just received a Hi-Viz yellow version of this jacket today. $190, shipped! I watched a video review of the jacket on Revzilla or Sportbiketrackgear, and they said sizes run large. I'm 5-10, 180, thin build with a beer gut, and this jacket is the perfect size. It fits well without the liner, and also with my Gerbing heated jacket liner underneath, in place of the zip out liner that comes with the jacket.
One small gripe that will never matter for me: The sleeve cuffs have a neoprene segment that doesn't go all the way around the circumference of the cuff, but enough to make the cuff tight, and to stop wind from blowing up the sleeve. NICE, except that this tight cuff also prevented me from being able to pull my hand back through the liner sleeve to remove the jacket. For me, this is no issue, as I will use the jacket in either linerless form, or with my Gerbing underneath.
Anyone want to buy a brand new Kilamanjaro jacket liner in size medium?
