I ride everyday rain or shine, only days I don't is when it's snowing or icy. In the summer I have my rain gear. When it gets cold out I wear a REV'IT! Horizon 2 Jacket and when it's raining in the the winter I wear REV'IT! Commuter Pants as well.
I live where the temps are mid 90's with over 90% humidity during the summer with afternoon thunderstorms being the norm, I'm lucky that my shift allows me to get to work before the storms and leave after they are over with so I just deal with the heat, I wear a nice pair of riding jeans brand is usually what I found on sale, Jackets I wear Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 multiple colors during the summer, and Joe Rocket Atomic 5.0 multiple colors in the winter, our winters hardly ever get below 40 F so I don't use the liner. Boots in the summer I wear Alpinestars SMX-1R vented all colors during the summer and Bilt Pit Boots for the winter. Gloves summer Joe Rocket High Siders all colors and REAX Castors The high siders are cooler but the REAX are more comfortable, during the winter I use Joe Rocket Sub Zeroes
Like some riders here, I commute everyday ~13 miles each way and takes ~35 minutes. I have riding shirts for warm weathers and Merlin jacket for cooler temp. For lower temp, I like electric, Gerbing are very good.
Stuff in parenthesis is what I have but you're in England so some of this will be stupidly expensive
Full face helmet (Arai or Shoei)
Apple Warmer (Vetter knock off)
Leather Jacket and Pants (Vanson)
Boots (Sidi or Red Wing)
Gloves (got to get new ones)
Heated Gloves w/ controller (Gerber)
Cold Weather Insulated Rain Suit (FirstGear)
Regular Rain Suit (think it's FirstGear as well)
If I was in England I'd look at used Belstaff gear. I hear the waxed stuff works well and becomes incredibly smelly so it's a win-win situation!
