Good motorcycle gear is quite expensive. One option I have found useful is buying good lightly used gear from folks who have grown too big for their britches. Or in my latest case, First gear hypertex pants and Kilamanjaro jacket for 100.00 with some light road rash. It requires patience and more time than you may have, but good used top of the line gear is available in the classifieds at BMWMOA or ADVrider as well as Craigslist and other places. Like you, I can't afford Aerostich, Klim, Rukka new prices.
Just an idea of what has worked for me.
