This will be my first winter and I'm looking to do about 100 miles a week. I've heard very good things about eVENT fabric, but the jackets I like with that are pretty pricey. I also saw a WINDSTOPPER jacket that I liked too. The only thing is that I dont really know how these different fabrics measure up to the amount of warmth they keep in, or their breathability, or level of water resistance.
I tried looking at some sites like icebike, but I can't get all the info I need. Please help me make some comparisons or even feel free to make some recommendations. If it help to know this, I dont plan on riding in the rain, unless I just happen to get caught in it. There are 2 jackets that I like right now, one is GORE Finish, and the other is SHOWERSPASS Elite 2.
Also feel free to throw in comparisons of any fabrics other than the 2 I mentioned, if you know anything about them.
