Funny thing; I called BMW to see if they had one in stock so I could go try it on and the dealer themselves recommended that I skip the BMW jacket and look at Klim
That dealer was probably out of stock of the Tourance in your size so it made sense to offer a switch.

BMW does some strange things to its dealers. If a dealer had this model already in stock when they discontinued them, the dealers were stuck with them. If the dealers bought them from BMW after they were discontinued, they were able to get them at substantial reductions. This is why they can sell them on Amazon for $275 which is well under original dealer cost.
