There's always the Aerostich Wind Triangle.

I got one of the neoprene/velcro style ones at Dick's sporting goods, I never tied puting it on with my helmet on already but I can tell you it will keep your chin and neck warm.

Similar to this one from REI

They also make longer ones that will cover more of your neck and chest.

Thanks. I just got a fleece Seirus neck deal at Dicks. It doesn't have the neoprene chin/nose part, it's more just a neck gaiter that has velcro at the back. The weather here is quite warm so I can't really try it now.

I saw the longer ones on the Seirus web page. I might end up with one of those.

For me it would have to be my Arai Profile helmet. I have a prominent forehead (read Frankenstein's monster) for which I've had trouble finding a helmet. With most helmets in the past I've had to sand out some of the foam to get pressure off of my upper forehead area. The Profile fits perfectly.

Multiple Choices

I've actually purchased three things that I'm particularly pleased with.

1) Arai Vector in the fluorescent yellow. Yes, I know. Many of you will sneer at the hi-viz look, but there is no greater feeling than seeing those drivers take a double take when I approach them. And the fit is spectacular.

2) Sedici leather gauntlets. This is one of the new house brands from Cycle Gear. Rumors are floating that they are made by the same factory as Astars. Don't know about that, but I can't argue against it based on how these things feel. Best-fitting pair of gloves I have ever owned (and that includes motorcycling, karting, and driving gloves). Not too expensive, either. I think they are on sale now for $49.

3) Gaerne G-Adventure dual sport boots. Not as much stiffness and protection as moto boots. But they are incredibly comfortable, have a great shin guard, and the three-ratchet closure ensures that they stay watertight. They also flex a great deal in the forefoot which makes shifting much easier. Very pleased!

Without a doubt, the BMW Rallye 3 jacket. I just finished a 3450 mile trip in everything but snow and the jacket performed flawlessly. Hot, dry weather to wind driven rain, this jacket kept me comfortable and dry. Some day, I'll be able to afford the pants as well. Maybe I'll sell a kidney!

Do you let it dry out or roll it up wet in the wax paper or what?

Other responses and reccomendations can be for body or bike. So what items did you buy that you have really gotten your money's worth? What stuff has outlasted your expectations?
For me I'd have to say my Aerostich one-piece suit. It made getting ready for a ride easy and fast. It has plenty of pockets and vents. So far so good in light rain. I have not ridden it in a downpour yet. It is warm to hot sitting ie not moving when temp's get above 85 and humid. On the other hand when cold out plenty of room for underclothes. Still worth the money I saved to buy it. Not inexpensive and defiantly not cheaply made. Great customer relations-!!!
I can't say enough how easy it is to put on with ATGATT.
