Gore-Tex vs. HyVent vs. Omni-Tech
Hey Fellas (and Felines?),
My question for the day: What's the best material you've personally experienced for snowbound activites? I'm looking for a new snowboarding jacket and can't decide b/w all the technologies today. Here's what I'm considering as of now...
1. Gore-Tex (the Legend)
2. HyVent (North Face's attempt to be Chinese and imitate Gore-Tex for less)
3. Omni-Tech (Colombia's version that sounds cool cuz they put it on their "Titanium" series jackets, but they confuse me when they label some jackets with both Omni-Tech and Gore-Tex... wtf?)
They all pitch water-proofness/resistance, breathability, and windstopping power... I'm leaning towards Gore-Tex at the moment, but cuz of the $$$ wanna here what you guys have to say, if anything... Thx.
We're all black when the lights go out ...
