Question Alternatives to Aerostich one piece

Any ideas on an alternative to the one piece? I am looking for something to commute to work in, easy on, easy off, and comfy.
Thanks

I wear a First Gear Killi jacket and HT pants. The pants work well as they have full length zippers. easy on/off.

I also have an Olympia one piece that I wear when it's REALLY cold. It's kind of a pain but it's warm.

Actually, I want a one piece suit, just don't want to shell out 800.00 for something that won't fit first time around. I have the darian jacket and HT pants, but its a hassel to get on and off in the parking lot, as I can not get through the security check with it all on.

I have a Roadcrafter 1 piece, they only cost $700 when I got mine 10 years ago, cost per mile, they are worth it, I also have !ST Gear Kilmanjaro & HT pants and have been on rides with plenty of peeps that have someof the alternatives like the Olympia product.

None of them are as quick & convenient on & off over street cloths

the only drawback to the Roadcrafter is that they are known to leak in the crotch

the Motorport 1 piece in stretch Kevlar at the top of the list.

I own both a Roadcrafter one piece and a Darian jacket and pants. The one piece is convenient only for long all day rides when I do not need to remove often. For me the Darien combination is more convenient for all short trips with varying temps and needs.
