Shred life asks for a source and you post a source which shows that goretex is in the #1 spot for breathability? and #2 spot for waterproofing at 28k?!
How is that "not even close" to a top performing fabric?
Showing sources to back up your point: yur doing it wrong.
Your are misquoting me. The part of my post that you selected to omit included a link to a study (very well known in the industry incidentally) for the US military that shows Gore-Tex absolutely getting trounced in comparison with other membranes.
The second part of my post (which you chose to repeat) was in response to another poster who had stated that "No laminate comes close to Goretex in terms of waterproofing, breathability, and weight."
