I picked these up from protective-clothing.net Although I have found tyvek rain jackets too hot to hike in, I do like using a tyvek overall as an outergarment when sleeping in the winter. It helps create an inner cocoon within the bag and breathes enough to prevent condensation

How breathable are they? Not very -use as vapor barrier, or very- better than Gore-tex ?
