have come to conclusion it's just not possible for one suit to cover all conditions.

any suit that's capable of functioning in say 20f conditions with wet nasties thrown in will not work in say 105f conditions.

Motoport claims theirs is good for all conditions... BS .. who would want a soaked outer layer with dry insides. then factor extra fuss factor for dealing with an extra layer. on top of dealing with all the wires with heated gear.

closest to a one suit solution is Motoport with a goretex oversuit. but then oversuit gets really bulky to fit over Motoport jacket. arrrgghhh....

best solution I've found when riding in wide ranging temps is to carry two suits. Motoport for 75f - 110f ... then one piece Aerostich for temps 80F- 20f.... add heated jacket/gloves below 45f .... add heated pants below 30f...

Motoport mesh kevlar doesn't compress well and takes up lots of space. Aerostich one piece packs down small.
