I am looking for recommendations on new riding gear that will reasonably comfortably offer three season use. Winter is not one of those seasons.
My criteria are: athletic or slim fit, 3/4 length jacket (I'm long in the torso so waist cut jackets look silly on me), Goretex or similar but NOT removable liners, particularly in the pants (never understood liners for pants - one has to undress by side of the road to put the liners in!?), don't care about thermal layers as I prefer using my existing solutions, good venting, good storage (pockets), not predominantly black (especially the jacket), and I'd like to be able to take the pants off without removing my boots. I presently wear mesh for the summer and a Roadcrafter for spring and fall. I don't want another Roadcrafter as I find it too hot. (If they got rid of that damned taffeta lining, that might change.) The closest I've seen to meeting my requirements is the now discontinued Klim Latitude Misano jacket and pants, however, the pants would not come off without removing boots. Also, the new Latitude jacket is now predominantly black which would make it hotter than I would like in warmer weather. I know Aerostich has their new light weight Roadcrafter but I don't want a one piece suit. I ride 100% street with the occasional gravel road thrown in and my intended use of the new gear is extended touring.
I've really searched a lot but keep coming up empty. Any suggestions?
