I just bought the Olympia Moab Jacket and Air flow pants. In comparison to my 'stich it feels like a cheap windbreaker. The stich feels like a suit of armor, in moderate rain my 1 piece works well, only after 1 hour I will get a little seepage. 2 hours and its wet crotch in a soaking rain. The newer suites have changed the zipper for the better Ive heard. Also the two piece is supposed to stay dry.

In hot weather its not that bad, since Ive been riding in the olympia mesh gear the stich is only a bit warmer. Granted I leave the sleeves loose over my gauntlets and the vents open. Coming to a stop you'll sweat but once moving a nice swamp cooling effect comes into play. Ive rode with it in 18 to 113 F and will buy another one when this one finally gives up the ghost, or it fades so pink I cant take it anymore and sell it on CL for someone needing street cred.

Humidity it hasnt been tested with as we dont have that out here.
