What are opinions on Gore and the like? I suspect the consensus will be that it's overpriced. There was a Gore shell on Amazon at a pretty good discount, so I thought I'd give it a try. If it breathes, it's hard to tell, and mine gets damp on the inside; I'm not sure whether it's from condensation or leakage. Still, it's not bad in cool weather, for wet and wind, but I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it.
