Second Michael's statement, although for cool damp read cold damp.
I've found as long as I keep my top half dry and warm, the legs largely look after themselves, but even Gore tex sweats up.
Best solution I have found is an Altura Dalby jacket sprayed with proofing material, and ridden with pit zips, back vents all open.
