Those numbers refer to how waterproof the fabric is; the higher the number, the more waterproof. Keep in mind that the testing is done by each company, so the numbers always 100% accurate, but it's a good indication of how waterproof it is. For pants I like at least 10,000mm, preferable 15k, for jackets, 8-10 is usually good. If you ride somewhere that sees lots of rain, or you find yourself covered in powder often, i would buy 15k clothing, staying dry is nice As for ebay, I live in the states, so I can't help you there.

If you plan on going to the West Coast, like Whistler, then I recommend a higher rating like 15,000mm or a gore-tex. It can get pretty wet on the coast.

He was asking if anyone outside the states has bought things from ebay. Which isn't me.
