personally when im riding i like my gear to be comfortable but not restricting in movement so i like a nice middle ground between the two. unless your in the park and style matters. be comfortable and dry.

Not sure what kind of weather you got in the PNW, so GoreTex might be good enough for you. But where I do my outdoor activities temperatures are extreme and humidity is sky-high. GoreTex just does not cut it in really challenging conditions...

Keywords "knock off". Any of the copycats that work just as well are not cheaper. The cheaper ones suckass.
No, keywords are just as good if not better. Agree most of the cheap stuff sucks, but the higher-end ones are definitely superior to GoreTex.

I spent last season battling it out with pants that restricted my stance. They weren't even that tight really. I grabbed another pair at short notice and they sucked, lesson learnt. This season i'm getting something that I can damn-well move in properly!

as everyone had already said, this question's been asked probably since 30 years ago. i doubt there's a definitive and universal answer, since it will differ from person to person.

I like how both styles look, but I can only go Baggy myself. I'm a pretty short/heavy guy (5'6 & 175lbs), so going skinny makes no sense at all for me.

It actually took me a while to figure out what works best for me. When I first got into boarding my buddies were telling me that going loose/baggy is the only way to go. I went with large jackets and pants, and to be honest I looked like a giant toddler for a long time cuz I was pretty short.

After that I figured that I'd give tight fitting gear a try, only to find that tight gear make me look pretty damn fat... So now I'm going with gear that's just about the right size, maybe slightly bigger.

If given the choice, I prefer eVent over Gore-Tex for the breathability.

Definitely baggy over skinny. Why anyone would want to suffer wearing tight pants is beyond me.

I like a slimmer fit but not so much as to hamper movement. I stopped wearing baggy shit after high school.
