BMW Boulder jacket vs. Olympia Air Glide

I'm looking for recommendations on either of these jackets. The fit & construction of the Boulder jacket seems to be quite good. Also the protective pads have a better rating than typical CE pads, cost - $399. The Air Glide has protective pads, construction seems to be OK and the price is only $219.

just food for thought...i purchesed a Tourmaster GX AIR...$175.00...so far its been great...28deg and stayed warm....havent really tried it in the heat...but without the liners it gets plenty of air......seems well made and the fit is great...just runs large in size....i wear a med ...but i went with the xsmall....great fit....for the $ i think its a great deal..

I'm thinking about the Boulder jacket, too. My dealer also carries the Olympia line, so it'll be easy to compare them by sight and feel, but I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who has worn the Boulder for a season or two.

Thanks for the feedback.
Ben, the dealer nearest carries both lines also. I bit the bullet & bought the Boulder jacket. The fit is first rate & I believe the construction is slightly better. I wore it for the last three days & nights. Mid 40's to mid 80s. Very comfortable. On the bike you don't even feel the armor. PS. My 'significant other' thinks it looks great on me. Enough said.
