Klim will be the best, I suppose.

I once hosed a fellow rider off with a garden hose. He was wearing a Klim suite and absolutely no water entered his suite. The Klim suites also have excellent ventilation.

Ja I also like the Carlsbad - it is my pick of the Klim (not climb according to video) suits.

See Motolegends overview here:

If it were not for the eye-watering price and the related issue of not being able to physically try one on...

Completely agree with the above.

I have been using the Klim Overland Suite for the past 6 years and was well worth the money spent - it vents well and and has kept me bone dry on the wettest of days without needing a liner.

Sadly they're not available anymore but having read and watched reviews I'd say the Carlsbad will be a good buy.

Nothing locally that I am aware of - going to have to be brought in which means to some extent you are spending the cost of a kidney on something that you haven't even tried on.

Dunno so much - I am a bit hesitant about it...
