    The only thing with the Armaxis is its a lot stiffer then the Nivala or the Navigator due to the addition of more Armacor panelling, where as the newer Nivala and Navigator have more stretch built into the fabric. Its not a major issue for some but worth trying it on to see if you can stand it longterm as some find it too restrictive and stiff.

    The inner jacket in the Armaxis is very nice though I have to admit.

    Well I bought the Nivala suit yesterday and got out for just shy of 250 miles today, first impressions are good, I love the fit of the jacket although at first thought the arms could be an inch longer. Once on the bike though it's fine probably due to the inner cuff which works well.
    Underneath I had an RST base layer and t-shirt and felt comfortable all day in temperature up to 22 I believe, and that was without side vents open.
    Just have to see how good in bad weather

    Even I wasn’t cold on Monday when I was out for the day.
    Glad you’re happy with it.

    And I wasn't sweating my tits off like usual in this weather in my non vented, non breathable Streetguard suit

    Following the reviews on here I bought a Nivala jacket. If the long term durability is as good as my Armxion I'll be very happy.

    The ventilation is much, much better than any other all weather jacket I'd tried previously and so comfortable compared to the Armaxion.

    I rode to Germany in my Nivala kit a week or so ago and got pissed on for almost the entire trip. Same on the way back. I was one of a small handful in the group that didn’t get soaked through (only bit that got wet was my hands through my gloves. Very pleased.

    I purchased the Nivala jacket & trousers from motorcycle legends two weeks ago.

    I have only worn the jacket so far, with Rokker jeans.

    My initial thoughts are that it fits like a leather jacket, and is very comfortable.

    The shop matched a reduction plus 10% so had a good discount.

    I can’t see the trouser liner ever been used tjough

    That's good to hear, I love my suit so far but it hasn't really been tested in torrential rain yet, although i do have a week booked around Scotland in a few weeks so I'm quite sure that may change

    Just tried a Nivala on at Sportsbikeshop in MK.
    Fabulous jacket . Never had a Rukka.
    Always default to Rev It but wanted a shorter jacket than my Dominator GTX to wear on my H2 SX and other non adventure bikes

    I’ve got too many jackets but the Dominator is the only Goretex one so I’ve ordered a Nivala.

    It’s still £900 with 10% off and VAT off but hopefully it’ll last !

    How'd you get it for that price? It's £1079 on their website. is the VAT off to do with business or some deal?

    I ordered mine from Sportsbikeshop on Sunday at around midday, arrived Monday morning. Unfortunately, I'm fatter than i thought and needed to return it. So I ordered and paid for a replacement.

    Anyway returned the jacket using their return slip later that day. Replacement arrived on Tuesday and perfect fit and the original refunded on Wednesday.

    Used them loads of times and always a first class service.

    Agreed. Been using them for years and always great service. God knows how much I’ve spent with them . I daren’t add it up.......oops.......just added it up and it’s a rather stupid amount. Bugger.

    Great suit right up to the point it leaked

    Bought it ... did 3000 miles around France in the first week ... rain and 35 degrees

    Must have had faulty pants .. felt like I was sitting in a bowl of water... took them back to J&S and they were surprised but swoped them no issue ... so glad I bought locally.

    Still think it’s an amazing suit ...

    You sure that wasn't sweat? How was the suit in 35 deg? I'm debating whether to wear my Stadler Goretex suit or vented clothing with waterproofs.

    I actually thought I was sitting in a puddle but when I took them off I was bone dry. I had Edz wicking trousers, the thermal trousers and then the Rukka trousers. As I said, all layers were bone dry on the inside!
