    They didn't on my first one, it acted like a sponge. I ended up with both sleeves soaked. The replacement is much better.
    Chaos, mayhem and panic; another job well done

    I don't think cuffs have a lot to do with your inner elbows and crotch getting weely werry wet. That said, the SG I looked at in Cotswold a few months back looked to have a different finish on it to the two I had....Maybe they've improved them.

    This is what I've invested in.

    It's expensive. But for me the cost per wear makes it with it. The inner down jacket is worth £200 by itself (I know as I've not ling bought something almost identical).

    The side venting is brilliant. The chest protector is must have for me as I feel very vulnerable now when a jacket doesn't have one. The biggest plus for me - just returned from Geneva, 3 long days and no fidgeting like in my SG kit and no Air hawk needed at any point....Go figure. Awesome kit.

    Picking up my 4th replacement Streetguard suit tomorrow. The 3rd one leaked in the arms like a sieve. Decent service from BMW though seeing as I bought the original suit 4 yrs ago.

    Picked up the replacement suit today. Apparently they tested my previous one by submerging it in water, where thankfully they found it was leaking at the arms and crotch. Great service from Alan Jefferies to be fair, seeing as the original suit was purchased 4yrs ago.

    At least yearly replacement eliminates the need for cleaning them

    Are you referring to your Y-fronts?

    That is a 24 month cycle as they can be turned inside out after 12 months
