Textiles for Winter. Suggestions pls

I'm looking for waterproof,breathable and warm textile pants and jacket for winter.

Really want to avoid looking like michelin man so need thin miracle material that does all of the above.

Who's got what and what's the best?

Doing the same Seaeagle - I'm looking at some Frank Thomas textile kit at the moment....but like you, yes if anyone's got any alternate suggestions I'd be keen to know.

...I wear my TCX X-cube boots (water-proof and good ankle support) in our rapidly approaching winter

I have the rev'it cayenne pro jacket in orange and pants in black. It's by far the warmest gear I own when buttoned up and also good with the vents open for hot weather. I've had it out in heavy rain and it does pretty well but will leak through in the pants after a couple hours.

I also like my Olympia phantom suit a lot (in retina-burning yellow). It's not as warm (with the liner in) as the rev'it but it has a waterproof shell and is a lot easier to wear over clothing. It's definitely better in the rain than the cayenne. It is also fantastic for mild or warm days - with the vents open it's literally like riding in a t-shirt.

Go into a BMW dealership and try the 'Comfort Shell' gear.

I bought the pants and jacket to ride to Phillip Island....from the heat of the desert to the snow on Mt Hotham and three days of consistent heavy rain, I was always comfortable and dry. (and bored waiting while my mates changed in and out of their wet weather gear each time they saw a cloud).

Heya Broms, long time I'll check it out as well as the Dainese stuff. All the way to the island in comfort! nice. I like the sound of that.

I trust all is well, pity you cant join us on the upcoming muster, would have been good to have you along.

The muster sounds like a blast, I'll be in Bali surfing at that time. But I'm looking forward to a write up from Rennie or Boris.

You need to bring your van with the Wal in the back and do some WA rides......plenty of work for you here too!

Cool

Rukka Armas jacket and Armadillo trousers. Expensive but very very good.
