Gore-Tex is still the best product of its kind. Folks like North Face, who offer more than a half dozen similar fabrics, will tell you flat out it is the most expensive choice but the best performer. With the "Extreme Wet Weather" guarantee (top grade) you will pay more, but you can expect it to work for at least five years before it goes porous or delaminates--and the XWW guarantee usually means it will be replaced.
