I have 3 Nike Juniper Gore-Tex jackets, plus one that I sold to my dad. Probably the most tech for the least cash you can get (all of them were $200 or under). I've had jackets from a ton of board outerwear companies. They have all held up well. My fave pants so far are a pair of Northface Fargo cargos, they seem pretty bombproof and super comfy. I also have a pair of Lib Tech bibs for super wet days. They don't appear as tough but they work well enough. Last year I had the 686 Smarty cargos which were great but I slimmed out of them.
