i am getting more and more confused on rain gear the more i read. i am heading to alaska in a week, so it is time to get a new rain coat. i watched the e vent video posted by aron, you should see this, it is v impressive. so which, arcteryx, kuiu chugash, sitka stormfront,rei kimtah, helly hanson, or what. this needs to be for heavy rain, and breathable if possible.
