From my experience the gortex stuff is well worth it. I picked up a full suit at the NEC show last year for about £500. The suit is made by HELD, I bought it from infinity motorcycles.

HELD does exceptionaly good kit. Those of us that did the Immenstadt trip a few years back were lucky enough to visit their HQ and the shop to the front of their factory.
Could've spent all the holiday money in the one shop visit Shocked

I'm well happy with the HG stuff. WW&W. Liners need to go back in now though. It was a little on the chilly side this morning. naughty

Not brass monkey weather but very different from last week.
