BMW has a suit they introduced last summer called the Comfort. It is breathable and waterproof without a separate removable liner. My SO and I both have them. On separate trips to Banff, Alberta and Jackson Hole, WY we rode through many rainstorms and kept completely dry. On one particular day from Challis, ID to Jackson Hole it POURED all day and we both kept totally dry. We pair these suits with Gerbings heated gear and can stay very comfortable down to about 30 degrees. The pants could breathe a little better, but the suit is reasonably comfortable up to around 100 (at which point, nothing is comfortable). We bought them to avoid having to carry separate rain gear, mesh gear, etc. and we haven't regretted the decision. They also have the new type of armor that conforms to your body once your body heat warms it up. As with all things BMW, the are obscenely expensive, but so far appear to be worth it. Anyway, just another thought.
