I work for the government in Law Enforcement, I commute 66km combined too and from work everyday. I do not have a place to store my uniform at work so I will have to transport it with me. What do you guys do? Do you wear it under your gear or fold it and put it in your tank or rear bag. I still have lots of snow here so I wont be riding for another month or so.

Considering that riding jackets & pants offering the best protection against road rash need to be relatively snug fitting... in other words not so loose and baggy that you could comfortably wear another layer of clothes underneath... I'd recommend figuring out a way of carrying your work duds on the bike and changing at work.

I commute a short distance and wear my work uniform under my gear. In the summer, with the liners out, there is plenty of room. Not so much with the liners in. I have another set of shoes I keep at work so I don't have to carry them, as I wear full gear and armored boots all the time no matter the temp.

I have carried my clothes in a tankbag or backpack, but find it's not a problem to have them under my riding gear for a reasonable distance.

Buying gear with insulated liners is tricky. Without the liner they can be too loose when they fit properly with the liners in.

Mine fit the best without the liners, and are a little snug with them in but still comfortable.

I have a joe rocket phoenix jacket, its mesh and has a rain liner in it. I can comfortably wear my uniform shirt under it but not my uniform jacket. Pants right now i have leather pants that i want to sell and get a decent pair of pants that fit a bit nicer, hoping for something with a removable liner so i dont over heat
