I have a Cioch Direct Glamaigh and can only echo the previous comments:

It is as breathable as an uncoated windshell,but the liner makes it as warm as a windshell with light fleece underneath. So I can't wear it in warmer weather, depending on activity level.

It is completely waterproof (I have not tried pants yet, kneeling might be different)

The one thing you have to feel to believe is the supple hand(using the lighter options), this makes it much more pleasant to wear. If you get a design without too many zippers etc it will feel like a cashmere sweater: unlike down there is weight draping over you, but it moves freely with you.

It is easy to care for just throw it in the washing machine with Nikwax and you're good to go. Also you can just sew any repairs or alterations.

Cioch offers kids gear (have 2 sets) and custom sizes/options which is great for a tall skinny guy like me
