I get that it comes down to affordability, but some of the comments here about being ok to ride wet and or cold is just stupid to be. Id buy used goretex or some 20/20 before I bought a new 10k...especially if you want the thing to last a long time anyway. Go to eby...there is tons of good used shit on there. Dont cheap out on comfort and function.

You wouldn't go for one of the lower-end Arcteryx jackets?

MOST people will never need goretex. That's just the way it is. PNW sure. Anywhere else is not cold enough or not wet enough for it to be a factor. I have a pair of the original 32 Joe Sexton pants circa 2009 that STRETCH and are a 20k. Still my go to pant for gnar pow days cause they are still waterproof.

I hate goretex. I have a jacket I got for running in for shit weather and almost never wear it. Its too fucking hot. And it's just a goretex brand tech shell. Literally just the goretex, nothing else. Keeps me dry sure, but when its snowing and 25* out and I start sweating? Fuck that.

I can't figure out whey peoples shit gets wet snowboarding (PNW excepted). What are you doing that you're staying in pressured contact with snow that long that its getting you wet?

I personally will never need anything more than 20k. Then again I get free outerwear every year...

Fixed that for ya. Ha.

I don't know either. Its not fucking breathable enough. Not my fault.

My two biggest problems are that its not breathable enough and it doesn't stretch. If I can get away with a 20k that also stretches I will do that all the time before I go goretex.
