I have a one piece textile suit which I use when I know the trip will be all or mostly in cold weather conditions, but I agree with versys rider that a good 2 piece suit is more versatile when temperatures fluctuate between warm and cold. Being able to zip out a jacket liner, for example, is a nice thing, as is the ability to take your jacket off when you go in a store or restaurant. It's a bit of a wrestling match to get in and out of the one piece for those purposes. I will say though that I feel better protected in the one piece. Everything else versys rider said is good advice too.
