Not sure exactly what you're looking for, but I would recommend anything made with Primaloft. One of the best insulators I've found yet releases moisture while retaining the maximum amount of warmth. Thicker is better, but doesn't get bulky. Good luck!

This pile and pertex one piece is polar-rated.
http://www.brenig.co.uk/item3.htm
I use a top of this construction, it is very lightweight yet warm and windproof. You can wear it over normal clothes or wicking underwear but it is most effective when used against the skin. It isnt waterproof but will keep you warm and comfortable in most cold rain. See http://www.softshells.co.uk/category/pile-pertex/

Other people who construct with this material are
http://www.buffalosystems.co.uk/
http://www.mardale.com/alpine_pile.html


They are both small companies who can do special orders.
