For me, Endura Singletrack Shorts and MT500 shirts, RaceFace Aquanot jacket, most of the year Shimano MT-90 boots but in (rare) dry weather Specialised Buzzsaws, RaceFace and Lizard Skin gloves.......

Mostly all from CRC or Wiggle.

Edit- And last but not least, Giro Hex or Xen helmets and also Sidi shoes.

Tend to ride in a Helly Hanson LS base layer with my jersey over the top. My little Montane Featherlight Smock if it is windy/light rain (fair weather cyclist 8) ) On my legs either Specialized bib shorts or my De Marchi Bib tights. On my feet-Adidas overshoes with my Northwave disco slippers and Seal Skin Technical Gloves or Specialized Deflects to keep my hands warm. Oh and then my Buff to be used as head/ear warmer or snot wiper :roll:
