    Email Motolegends and ask, as superficially, not a lot. Perhaps just the graphics or sourced from a different supplier? Motolegends provide excellent customer service.

    Might be worth watching this video.

    I bought the Nivala and it’s great. Do you want additional vents and a naff logo, or supreme comfort while you can still get the original? Same price, so simple choice.

    Got a mate who bought the Nivala and apart from how much it cost haven’t heard a peep since so assume no news is good news, although in fairness most of our mileage is done on trips, not freezing our balls off commuting....combine that with 2 years of Covid and non of us currently are doing many miles.

    My darling wife is Rukka fan and the fitting is a whole new ball game, I had a good look at the Rukka options but went Klim Badlands....but still had to buy a Rukka liner for when it gets cool.

    Thank you very much everyone for their replies. I am trying to replace my 7 year old Rukka aramaxion. which had served me very well in my tours. it is showing its age with cracked zip and worn out reflecters now.

    I have looked at the Stadler and BMW clothing. but did not find it comfortable and went back to Rukka.

    I have one of those too, in a similar state. Except it's about 11 years old. The only gripe I have with Rukka gear is the zip tabs - they break. I've had to replace the tabs on most of my zips. Other than that, their durability is amazing

    I've been using Rukka for 20 years - the gear to get is the one where the gore-tex membrane is bonded to the shell. It lasts forever and I've never even been damp despite using my bike to commute all year round in shitty UK weather.
