    Default It depends

    There are a few good places to look depending on what your looking for.

    A few of my favorites are:

    Revzilla, they have great reviews, pricing is good and selection is fantastic.
    https://www.revzilla.com/sportbike-gear

    Aerostitch, great mid to high end riding gear, prices are expensive, but the gear is also built to last and durable.
    http://www.aerostich.com/

    Klim, they are arguably the highest quality and highest priced gear going. This gear will last a lifetime but you will also pay top dollar for it.
    http://www.klim.com/

    Ebay, I often go here for items that don't necessarily have to be the highest quality or brand new.
    https://www.ebay.com/

    Spyderlovers, don't forget to check here in the 4 sale section, and also post what your looking for. Many people have forgotten about that thing your looking for and your post just may remind them to sell it.

    Go on eBay and search "Can Am Jackets". You will be amazed and what pops up. There will be a lot at MSRP but there will also be a lot at reduced prices. These are NOS (new old stock) with tags. Happy shopping.

    I think you're asking the wrong question. Quality, fit, value, personal taste all factor into it. Also, what gear are you talking about - jackets and pants, gloves, helmets - what?

    Most motorcycle gear especially helmets really need to be tried on, so either go to a store that carries what you're looking for or shop online with stores that have a generous return and replace policy. Revzilla is a good place to start.

    Default There you have it....

    Cycle Gear is another place for gear. They have stores and online shopping. But you do need to know some name brands and qualities cause there are a lot of cheaper items that you will not be happy with. Best find the brand then shop the price....

    Check out Baja Ron, a vendor on our site.

    I am interpreting "Spyder clothing" as any that can be worn while operating the Jackets, pants, etc. Branded BRP stuff is a lot more expensive compared to items bought elsewhere. EG. Firstgear.

    I only have two branded BRP jackets--one leather and one textile. Purchased in 2008 and used on a regular basis. They still look and function as new. I had to have branded at first--but I got over it.

    Stay away from anything sold by BRP. W-A-Y overpriced.
    Look at the links below. Lots of good sites there. Also, being in Owen Sound, one day after doing your research for what you want and looking for the Toronto dealers who sell what you need, slide into Toronto and get your duds at a shop that you have picked out.

    Lots of BRP branded gear is I think, actually made by Firstgear. It's like Harley branded stuff - slapping a logo on it makes it worth more.

    BRP gear can be pricey but watch for sales. Check out revzilla they do great reviews on different products. Once you figure out what brand you want try Googling it to find the best price.

    I wear Aerostitch riding pants, a BRP textile jacket, a Klim helmet and my mesh jacket came from learherup.com.

    Revzilla is my go-to site for gear. I use their video reviews and customer reviews and Q&A. They also have very knowledgable customer service folks to talk to.

    Then I shop around for price. I look at Motorcycle Superstore, Dennis Kirk, Cycle Gear, Amazon, manufacturer, etc. I have found that usually Revzilla is competitive on price. But, surprisingly, I occasionally find Amazon has a lower price. For instance, I saw some Klim riding pants sold by Klim on Amazon that was cheaper than they sell on their own site.

    I've bought all my riding gear from Royal Distributing out of Guelph. They have 5 locations and a very extensive website. Prices are very good.
