once again thanks for all the info. i guess there are times when all you need is a jacket or pants and not both, thanks for pointing this out. makes a lot of since why you prefer the two piece over the one piece. and thats what i ride in also Twigg is the Olympia airglide 3 however mine is a little over three years old and i heard the newer ones are a little better than my old style neon yellow. i ride with solid tourmaster pants textile type with a liner which is good to stop most of the rain but gets a little hot on a summers rain. been thinking to switching over to mesh pants but seems like i read that the mesh pants and jackets are worse on you on those hot summer days due to the wind blowing right threw and actually dehydrating worse than if you had on solid riding gear. i do know i rode to the beach a couple of years ago and after about 2 1/2 hours i had to take mine off. it felt like i was about to pass out.
