Should I stay away from certain brands more than others or can I not really go wrong?

Thanks,

I should add that the waterproofness/breathability rating is generally a good guide for how good the clothing is. 5k/5k is the worse, spring weather only. 10k/10k is ok. 15k/15k better. 20k/20k or higher is ideal. Just pick according to your needs and budget.
