sorry but no matter how much one charges for a suit ... cannot change laws of physics.

multilayer goretex suits are HOT! there's no two ways about it. don't know about you, but anything over 80f is uncomfortable to me for a full goretex suit. sure if one keeps moving with wet vest it's tolerable to higher temps. whereas mesh kevlar suits would be comfortable in above conditions with no fuss.

kevlar mesh suits work best in hot weather but suck in cold. despite claims of being all weather with goretex inside liner. when camping in cold weather, NO one likes having a soaking wet outer layer while insides are dry. then if using heated gear with mesh kevlar jacket, add much fuss dealing with extra layers and wires all over.

conclusion is one needs two suits for extreme temperature swings. my solution is motoport mesh kevlar for hot conditions. then one piece Roadcrafter with heated suit for nasty conditions. cleanest solution dealing with heated suit wiring.
