hey...i agree. Like I said its goretex or nothing for me. Its simply the best. 20k/20k good enough for some who dont ride often I should say.
The other thing people need to realize is longevity. Fuck specs if after a few uses its not effective anymore. Goretex is garaunteed after 20 wash cycles, and retains it waterproofing and breathability after each wash. Try that with a Spider 20k/20k. I did and lets just say i felt bad donating it to Value Village after.
i must not ride often enough because my cheap ass sessions 10k shit is still water repellant. either that or we have some super dry snow here in the Snowy Range (most likely the latter)
