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."
I went to the only link you provided in your post.
You also said this in the same post which isnt consistent with saying goretex is "not even close" to be ing a top performer.
Still, it is clear that there are a number of fabrics that at least rival, if not exceed, the performance of Gore-Tex
There are some that rival, but goretex is a top performer, and outperform 99% of everything on the market. I wont dispute that there are some other top performers out there that rival it.
