I'd like to get some new gear too.
Here's what I'm wearing at the moment:http://freepz.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/gearing-up/
The suit is pretty good, but old. I bought a spine protector that I slip under the jacket, but apart from that it doesn't have any armor. What I do like about that suit is that is fits me very well and the pants attach to the jacket with a big zipper that goes all the way around. (Most jackets I've seen these days only have a small zipped up section that joins the jacket to the pants at the back.) I only wear the pants when I plan to do a lot of highway riding, but wear the rest of the gear all the time.
Rain gear would be a good idea, but so far I've been lucky and only hit 10 minutes of rain at a time. My suit isn't waterproof, but keeps me a bit dry enough. A good old Florida downpour will get me soaked.
I would like to get new gear, but it's not easy. Good leather gear is very expensive, so I'm not going to get something unless I'm sure it's right. I really like the wrap around zipper, but I haven't seen that anywhere. I don't want to get a full one piece suit because the pants are overkill for a short trip to the store and would tempt me to skip wearing the suit at all.
Oh well. My current gear will have to do until I find something else.
