    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!
    Every time we let a vehicle pass there is a little bit of compromise. But compromise allows the city to function and allows cyclists to function in the city. The trick is not to eliminate compromise but to learn how to work safely within it.

    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.
