So no takers on my comments on the O'Neill Jones Experience pants/jacekt thread but I thought that everyone might find this article interesting from Snowboard Canada magazine...

Are high waterproof breathability ratings really worth the price?

In my experience its either waterproof or its breathable, you dont get the best of both worlds in one product. when a company says thier product is both totally waterproof and breathable then its marketing hype. My base layers are breathable and my shell is waterproof my :twocents:

This.

Some are better than others, though.
