Tied for 1st is Waterproofing and breathability. I doubt I will ever go any lower then 20k on either. Ill likely stay with goretex or equal type fabric.
things that are important to me:

- waterproof rating (I end up in the snow a lot, so it's important)
I sometimes wonder, does it make such a big difference? I have a 5k jacket and a 10k jacket, and I've never had either one soak through. Admittedly though, I don't spend a lot of time buried in snow for better or worse.

- A zipper that unzips from either end (more important for males
Hahaha xD I think for the same reason, girls don't buy snowboarding pants with suspenders.
