Ever hear of Schott Apparel?

I have never heard of Schott Apparel but they have been around since 1913 and make all kinds of jackets. www.schottnyc.com is their site. I was at the Ft.Worth MC show Saturday and tried one on....great fit, nice material and claims to be totally waterproof. Very soft material so I wonder about abrasion resistance but it sure feels good.
On sale for $175 at the show. Even if it isn't all it claims to be, at that price it would be ok for a knock around jacket.
I haven't been able to see how it actually is when riding because of this wierd 85 degree November weather.

BMW of Oklahoma City was selling them.

Has anyone ever looked at these? Does anyone wear one?

I'm really liking this jacket so far. Very comfortable, blocks wind very well and is very warm. It is actually too warm above 80 degrees even without the liner. I've only had it down to 35 degrees so far and was warm without using my heated vest.
Since it hasn't rained in months here I haven't been able to test that yet.
