Lightweight waterproof hoody

Hello all... I was just wondering if any of you might know of (if it exists) a lightweight waterproof hoody? I live in Tennessee and more times than not its in the high 40's to mid 50's when I hit the slopes. I absolutely sweat to death when wearing just a t-shirt and lightly insulated jacket. I would love to find a loose fitting pullover thats waterproof for the warmer days. Any suggestiosn would be great! Thanks Daryle

Claims to be the most breathable material on the market. 100% waterproof! as in comparable to gore in its waterproof claims. I got the blue anorak. Love it.

A hoodie will never be waterproof. do you mean water resistant? if so are you thinking 5/10/15k?

I know argo likes miu, nomis makes some, I just picked a volcom one cheap off of whiskey. Most outerwear manufacturers have one.

Thanks for the response..I'm not sure exactly proof vs resistant. I had bought a Columbia softshell that is water resistant and after falling a couple times I was soaked to the skin.. so maybe a GOOD water resistant or waterproof would be ideal..

I've got one, I don't wear it boarding but I would if it was hot enough. I've been in pouring rain and not a drop gets though.

Not what he's talking about, he's referring to an actual hooded sweatshirt that has been bonded, or treated with a dwr type coating. You see them a lot in the park and in the spring like this

The stoic hoodie is a hard outer fleece by polartech with a mild dwr.
