Riding in the rain for means being cold and wet to the bone. I desperately want to go out and ride but after a week of intermittent rain I'm ready for a new jacket. I can't stand a thought of been stuck under a bridge, waiting for the rain to stop instead of riding through it. So, I just leave my bike at home and take the car instead. While researching a new waterproof jacket, I've stumbled upon this video comparing Gore-Tex to other competing materials:
In it the REV'IT Gore-Tex comes out slightly on top in terms of waterproofing, giving in at 30psi of water pressure while the Dainese D-Dry protects only up to 25psi. However, on vapor dissipation (breathability) Dainese comes up on top. Outside of these test I only have marketing materials to rely upon, which all claim that their materials are the best.
So I'm looking for feedback from actual riders who have tried these jackets.
Which material would you recommend for a waterproof jacket that is comfortable enough for daily commutes and occasional half-day trips?
