I don't have alot of space for different gear, so have aspired to own a single outfit that works for all conditions. Right now it's:
Schuberth Concept 1 helmet
custom molded earplugs
(optional) Aerostich wind triangle
Motoport Ultra II stretch Kevlar jacket and pants with built-in armor
Oxstar Matrix boots
Gloves (one of several pair depending on conditions)

I never get on the bike without all this stuff on, so when purchasing I look for easy-on and off. For cold weather I have Goretex liners, top and bottom, a zip-in thermal layer; for real cold I have an electrified primaloft jacket and I put optional plexi knee fairings on my bike. Have not tried the Motoport in extreme cold yet, but so far in conditions from 40-90F it's been quite comfortable.
