    Looks like the gray suit simply eliminates the blue sections and replaces them with black. And there is a new blue rallye suit. No idea if they still use the liner or not.

    Wish they could get rid of those chessboard reflector patterns. I'd rather take a car in the face than drive around with that. :lol3

    I wonder if its the same suit that they gave the guys in the GS Trophy Challenge? They are a different design and color scheme than the 3. Link below is from HackyMoto from AK that was part of the US team and has some new ride suits.

    I like my 3 thats light gray with blue trim instead of dark blue with gray trim. It does make a difference down here in south FLA.

    The light gray suit now has black trim. Instead of the blue.

    still looks like it is a waterproof liner so the jacket and pants still get soaked. The companaero suit still looks the best with the waterproof on the outside.

    The material bonded outside of the GoreTex™ still gets "soaked" on those suits.

    This is true, they do get soaked BUT it doesn't pass to he rider. I rode over the summer wearing the Companero in torrential rain for around 6 hours. The suit was new, and 4 hours in I thought the trousers had become saturated and were letting water in. They were cold, but 100% waterproof.

    I had considered he Rallye 3, but am so glad I went for the Companero. :D

    Dont get me wrong, my Ralley 3 suit is everything I've expected and more. If i had it to do over again, id go with a waterproof exterior.

    For me the RP3 suit fits me much better than the RP2, in particular the jacket. The pants took a bit of getting used to with the enlarged knee armor. That said, I've found that the real Gortex liners in the RP2 worked far better than the newer product...Schuller??

    If I run into a major piece of wet weather on a trip I pull out the one piece rainsuit and that works extremely well.
