Thank you for your feedback, JohnaH. Klim and Touratech are brands that keep popping up due to their reputation, and I agree with you that you get what you pay for. The Cousin Jeremy suit by Aerostich is the one suit that I can see myself using. Since these suits are north of a grand, I want to make sure it fits my needs before I end up with an expensive pair of overalls for yard work! I would like to use my 9T more regularly to commute, however since I am not a big fan of riding in temps below 48F (perhaps I deserve to be ridiculed here, but what can I say..I just do not like cold weather), I need a good suit that allows me to keep a clean shirt and stay relatively warm while riding. Bulk is indeed an issue with this approach, as @GenericUser1 mentioned, and that is why I am looking for a one piece suit that has a bit of insulation that can get the job done.There is an international quality standard rating, at some point I looked at it as often I would buy one brand and pay more than can be justified to the wife. I have however learned over time that you get what you pay for and checked up on quality when purchasing. I note that the Rally suit from BMW and the Klim suit as wel as the Touratech Rallye suits are all very similarly priced and very expensive, but of a similar quality rating. A friend of mine has the same Rallye suit since 2006 and that suit is still good after 200 000km. Same with Klim and Touratech. I have a one piece suit from BMW and like all textile suits with goretex it is not really waterproof in heavy rain. You do have the convenience of wearing a suit underneath and just taking it off and putting on working/day shoes. It can be very hot in slow traffic in temperatures of more than 25 degrees. On shorter distances it is a bit of a nuisance. It gives good protection although very expensive. I suppose you need to play around with protection suits and decide what works for you. I also have a BMW pair of "jeans" that I wear casually all day. I find my Rally suit better suited for longer distance travelling than other textiles like jeans. I have one leather jacket that I got to like a lot and generally can recommend good leather equipment. When I do dusty roads the Rallye is better. Hot weather allows me to use an airflow or similar suits. Unfortunately we do not have a lot of choice in relation to brand availibilty as local Riders are not keen to spend big bucks on clothing as the local culture in respect of protective clothing is bit controversial , well let us say it is frowned upon by some riders to spend money on clothing and quite often in summer you see riders on Fireblades with just a T-shirt, shorts and slops. Personally I have seen the advantages of a good suit and wear protection all the time. There are a lot of suggestions and personal experiences, play a bit and share with us.
