    TBH I've heard that from several sources and I know a mate had their kit at the end of his despatching career. I don't know why I didn't buy the HG kit when they were still around. Maybe because I'd just bought the Aerostich and still had the Scott Road jacket that was also waterproof (apart from one pocket). So let's rephrase... nothing from mainstream manufacturers seems to be waterproof.

    Been very happy with my Held jacket and trousers. They're proper Goretex and I've stayed perfectly dry. Removable thermal liner and decent vents for when warmer weather makes a sneak appearance. The outer layer does soak up moisture - but they all do that sir. One gripe is that with wet hands it's easy to turn the towo outer pockets inside out - but they most definitely are waterproof. Got them from Louis.de - and didn't pay full price either.

    Savona jacket and Pesaro trousers

    Mind you, they're probably "last season dahling" now but their more recent stuff might be worth a look. Huge range of sizes in some of their gear.

    I've been using Held Arese Gore-Tex Trousers for a few years. They have been completely waterproof. they have a useful leather (or faux leather?) non-slip patch on the seat which stops me sliding forward on the bike seat. The only downside is the zips on the pockets have broken.

    I've got Klim Goretx llaminate (like laminate but Welsh) strides. They are the only textile strides I've ever had that are actually totally waterproof. Excellent ventilation for summer. But they aren't the most comfortable I've ever had. They don't come with any liner, so I either wear them with thermal longjohns, or over the top of jeans. Or both. I have a Dainese Goretex laminate jacket. It's nearly a year old and has done well. Comfortable, warm removable thermal liner. Waterproof. Decent ventilation.

    If HG kit isn't available in the UK why not buy it from somewhere in continental Europe? Could be a pleasant jaunt too.

    They don't exist anymore anywhere (as far as I can make out).

    You could get some over trousers that will accept armour and are breathable?

    I have the jacket in this range for those erm wet days however only certain sizes left
