So far it's great.
Just got my V3 and rode under similar conditions with similar results. This suit really flows the air.

When it comes to waterproof liner rain protection, I find it counter productive to stop, take off gear, install liners and put back on gear....in a sudden downpour....while on the way to work. I've also tried using various external rain jackets/pants and rain suits but I feel like the little brother in a Christmas Story once I have riding gear+rainsuit+gaiters+glove covers on....and by the time I actually get all that stuff on, I'm still sweating and swearing anyways.
Lastly, as far at lower temperatures go, I usually don't put the liner in any of my textile jackets or pants unless it's sub 50 deg. F outside...I'd much rather wear my own hoodie or insulating layer then wear what is the equivalent to a 1980s nylon jacket (which is what most of my jacket liners seem to be).

I realize that it must be hard to create a suit that has good airflow and also be waterproof but even I was impressed with how a simple summer baselayer works wonders with riding gear that has minimal venting...it's almost like "wearable air conditioning" lol.

Sorry for the winded whining session but it sounds like from your website that you guys have no intentions of creating a liner-less waterproof riding suit...that being said, which one of your textile 1pc suits would you consider to be the most waterproof WITHOUT the liner in?
Thanks and I'm excited to see what you guys come up with in the future!
I used a Teiz Alcatraz leather suit, treated with $15 of Nicwax, on a very rainy cross country trip, and more or less stayed dry in all but the heaviest rain at highway speed. I also don't like to stop on the side of rainy roads to change my gear but the suit worked fine from 20 degrees at the top of pikes peak to 90 in Vegas. Still, I like the new 2 piece and likely will put one on my xmas list.

A guy at a gas station asked me what kind of suit I was wearing. I told him and he was familiar with it from a Honda ST forum. I thought that was pretty cool. We had a refreshing conversation about ATGATT too. SO many people around here are squids on stretched and dropped super sports.

That is pretty neat.Teiz brand awareness is steadily increasing. We even got a pic from a customer where there were two owners in the picture

Just a thought, I have the Lombard V3. Could you market a waterproof liner to slip inside it similar to the V4? Love the suit.

give me a call and i could have one made for you. But it wouldnt zip in as the suit itself does not have the zippers for it.
