This is absolutely true!

But, my old BMW System hemlet has no openings, no buttons, nothing where the noise can get in. When I stand on the pegs to make sure I'm not influenced by turbulence, the Nolan is much more noisy.

I've looked more carefully at the hemlet, and found something that doesn't seem to be right. If you look at the image above, if I lift the strap, I can see right out to the outer shell. Can this be right? No wonder there is noise! Can you, please, check if your is the same?
