I like to tour, space is a minimal so you need to plan. I am a fan of Gore-Tex, however nothing is perfect. Putting on and removing rain gear, as well as having to store it, is not my idea or efficiency. I have an Aerostich R3 Roadcrafter 1 piece suit and Aerostich Transit leather suit (discontinued). Both use Gore-Tex and both have kept me dry in heavy rain. Both suits will leak eventually, but I have no complaints.
My Transit Suit is about 6 or 7 years old and has seen many miles and many storms and sadly it is not quite the suit it used to be. I have recently looked at 2 suits which are constructed using Corium+ applied to leather. One by Rukka and one by Held.
Both are new and not currently available but they are taking pre orders. They are both pricey, Rukka being the more expensive.

With regards to coats, the expense is all in the texture. Most tops of the line Gore-Tex shells come in around an eye-watering $500—the sort of outerwear intended to face the hardest, wettest, coldest conditions. It's additionally consummately achievable to discover a coat in the $100 territory produced using a less expensive, off-brand material. Be that as it may, exactly how huge is the execution distinction between these two alternatives? I needed to discover.
