DriDucks vs. Rainshield - breathability on 03/13/2005 23:50:37 MST Print View

Anyone know how the Provent material used in DriDucks compares in breathability to Rainshield?

I have both the DriDucks and O2 Rainwear by Rainshield. Both are bilaminates. Both are extremely simple, *BEEP* ( field repairable with duct tape)and very breathable. I have hiked soaked clothing dry under both of these jackets in about an hours time. Tan color of DriDucks is a little more appealing than the bright yellow ( the lightest of the O2rainwear by Rainshield).

Thanks a ton for the reply! I thought for sure no one knew. I went ahead and bougt a pair of DriDucks last week through for the price point, and have been very pleased with them (except for tearing the rear seam open when squatting for the first time! Need the next size larger, it seems).
