In my own personal opinion, there is nothing aesthetically pleasing about the OEM one either, they just look like a ridiculous plastic after thought, and it's a feckin expensive after thought too. Rolling Eyes
Not for me, one bit but good luck in your search.


I agree. Other than aesthetics what purpose does it perform? It’s not even waterproof. Unless you really need it for higher air intake in dusty conditions, save your money. There are better mods.

I actually contacted this company after the listing ended previously.. They had run out of stock but said they coukd order one especially and offered a better price if bought direct from them (£90 ish if i recall?)
Obviously they now have stock.. Haven't purchased one yet but I think I will, they were prompt to reply to any question so seem like an ok supplier. As for quality I have no idea...

the hunt continues.

I’ve bought one of the copied snorkels, it’s identical barring the badge, same materials and fixings, I paid £105 including delivery from Poland through EBay, it arrived 4 days after ordering.

Any update on the polish snorkel?
Have had the same problem trying to source one, only like the OEM style and not having much luck getting one.

They don't do those ones anymore. I did check with them and they only do a safari copy now.
