It is not a shitty fabric it does it job. HyVent is made by TNF and it is a coating that is painted on the outside of the jacket to get the water proofing of goretex that is a membrane in the jacket. So they did this so they dont have to pay for the name of goretex. What you are looking for is a goretex active jacket or neoShell by polartec both very breathable. The down side to this is they come as a soft shell of light technical jacket so not as durable as a pro 3L goretex jacket. The big thing to help with goretex pro is side and pit zips. I ride with my zips always open unless it is crazy cold or on the lift up.
