That way I'm dry, and wearing dry slacks during the day ... simple to slip off the boots / gore-tex trousers and slide on a pair of formal shoes leaving the trousers to dry as required before the spin home :)

Interesting idea!

Rst adventure Kit is very good and versatile for all weathers, Ive had mine the last 4 years and with all the different combinations of liners ot does well in cold or hot conditions.
There is an insulation layer and water proof liner that are both removable.
Plenty of pockets and a really usefull high detacthable collar.
When all sealed up it withstands water ingress ive only ever had water get in at the neck or hands with incorrect gloves over the sleeves (instead of under)

Latley Ive found the sleeves at the elbow crease have leaked but Im hoping fresh nickwax will help that.
In the heat it has lots of panels to open to get cool air through.

Ive had a set for the last four years and it is really good kit although the new series 3 has no detachable high collar but fear not the Paragon 5 has and if your not into the adveture style its at the same level.



All available in bikewurld, they have always beaten online prices in my experience.

Something like the below with matching trousers will do the trick with removable lining for summer
