Leather is hot, wearing a rain suit over top would make it even hotter, and wearing wet leather feels awful. One of problems with both my Transit waterproof leather suit and my Cortech waterproof leather gloves is that while they keep me dry they soak up a lot of water, which makes them heavy and it takes a long time for them to fully dry. In my opinion there's nothing worse than having to put on damp leathers after a day of rain on a multiday trip. These are the reasons why I picked up the KLIM stuff. While I fully believe that leather protects better than textile, compared to leather you can't beat textile as rain wear or for (lack of) weight and breathability.Its doubtful I’ll be wearing the touring stuff a lot, as I’m usually taking day trips as opposed to multi days trips... and for those i zip my two piece leathers together over a wicking base layer. Now THAT would be awkward to have a rain suit over..lol. If it rains when I’m in leathers i just let it happen and try to ride myself dry after. Although if the textile suit ends up being more comfortable and breathable, i could end up switching over.
