    Black gloves did the same. So why was it that the dye would leech out of the leather, but not wash off skin?

    Identical, apart from the Shoei having a bigger shell, it seems ...

    First cordura motorcycling suit was a gore-tex Dainese black and yellow, as the bike was also black and yellow.
    Discovered very soon that:
    1) The pockets were not waterproof. So at Dainese they had made the suit waterproof, but the banknotes in my wallet had become a mash of wet paper. I wisely did not try to "peel" them, and let them dry (several days), money saved but never made the mistake again.
    2) The yellow part of the black and yellow proved nasty to keep clean. Again, lesson learned. I now have an "undertaker" model, very easy to keep decent...

    One review of a Frank Thomas suit noted that, although the suit wasn't waterproof, the pockets were!

    It still happens, apparently.
    Halvarsson has that "Celtic" stuff, leather with gore-tex membrane (was Discovery + Dede). I write to them asking about the pockets and after trying to evade the question they had to admit that no, all the external pockets aren't.
