I'm looking for suggestions for a lightweight eVENT rain jacket (XXL) and pants (XL).
My biggest difficulty in my attempts to go ultralight is the fact that I'm a big guy (6'6" and 265) because manufactures simply rarely make ultralight shirts/jackets in XXL. I can usually find XL bottoms, but it's always more costly, hard to find, leg length is often an issue, and I exhaust a ton of effort which results in a general pain in my non-ultralight fanny.
My desire to find an eVENT jacket is because I currently use a Mountain Hardwear GTX 2.5 Paclite jacket (25 oz). It is a very durable and waterproof jacket which I like a lot, but it is too heavy to carry in an UL capacity and it doesn't breathe particularly well.
It was suggested to me to purchase the NF Diad, made of HyVent, but after reading many posts and reviews on eVENT, I feel compelled to purchase an eVENT rain suit. I also didn't like the fact that HyVent seemed like a fabric treatment, one which would wear over time.
With that said, HELP! Is HyVent really that bad? Is eVENT really worth buying? Is there any eVENT jacket which comes in an XXL?
