Hi,
I was wondering what your experiences were with rain jackets. Got one you really like? I need one bad. Thanks

REI gore tex works well, and if you are a member they have plenty of sales from time to time
I have a lot of so-called breathable waterproof stuff, most is way too hot. I use mine for skiing but the concept is not too different. the only major issue is whetehr the tail of the jacket covers you.

Good experience- REI gore tex

OK-Helly hansen helly tech
eastern mountain sprts laminate

lousy- nevica entrent- (must be french for sponge)

Don't know if they are still available, but i got a xxl rain jacket from Performance on a closeout deal. Works pretty good for me.
