I'm using a Vitesse.. [locally] the synthetic cover is good for rain and not worrying about leather covers getting wet,
but its not the most durable stuff when saddle is parked against stucco walls ... or the bike falling over ..
you will have a gaffers tape covered saddle before long, so bring a roll of tape with you for patching purposes ..
You might get away with out scuffing and tearing the cover if the luggage , panniers,
is always the first thing to touch down ..
you can spend a lot of money on them, I'd rather not , so I got mine with steel rails..
as often repeated , it's between your butt and the saddle ..
brand names are interacting with your head.
