I recently bought a Richa Atacama jacket and trousers.  Super quality and I'm very pleased with it  :467:

I bought the Richa Infinity Pro 2 jacket and Richa Colorado 2 trousers from MotoLegends 6 months ago, and I'm happy with them. I specifically wanted laminated gear and couldn't stretch to the likes of Ruka. I tried on various options in their shop, and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. At first they were recommending Halvarsons, but it became apparent that I'm just the wrong size/shape for Halvarsons so we settled on Richa. They did point out that the removable thermal liner on Richa is nowhere near as good as Halvarsons, so I might want to take it out and use something better, and they're absolutely right.

Yes the Halversons thermal lining is extremely good at what it does as supposedly its temp controlling, however I find it a bit too warm unless the outside temp is at a level where I no longer wish to ride a bike.................

+1 for Richa gear. Currently a cyclone goretex jacket and trousers. I ride every day in all conditions, frequently very wet here in Scotland. 4 years now for this gear and it doesn't leak. The jacket is getting a bit worn now though, lining ripped under the arms and the velcro needs frequent repair and replace. I'd still replace it with exactly the same though.
