    As a follow up, here is Andrew Skurka's take on rain gear: http://andrewskurka.com/2015/backpac...et-rain-pants/

    I tend to agree with Andrew - in warm, humid environments like the AT, breathable waterproof fabrics will retain moisture inside and you will get wet. It is just a matter of time, with the time depending on a large number of factors including weather, activity rate, and specific fabric.

    I tend to find myself gravitating towards well-ventilated rain gear. Larger pit zips, for example, would sell me on a rain jacket much more than a new fabric.
