Gore Tex

I think anything made of Gore Tex is hard to beat for breathability. Its the best fabric I have ever used for keeping water out and not getting clammy inside. I have found this true in many years of skiing and cycling as well.
I saw some offshore foulies recently made by Puma, very nice, complete overkill for most, and VERY expensive.

Dry or Cheap is easy... breathable is much more costly. Lots of companies say their fabric/jackets are breathable, but I have found them to be far less breathable than anything made of GoreTex.
