How good is this fabric ? In particular how does it behave compared to Gore Tex in term of breathability ? Thanks.

more breathable that goretex, even xcr it seems, not as long lasting it also seems, cheaper....

The Tempest Sl (conduit?) jacket is amazing, and great for 3 season use. Good design, light weight, and versatile.

Great fabric, super breathable - more so than most things I have used, however not as durable as G/T...if you want to go light(er) though it's a very good choice.

Totally disagree...nothing is more breathable than XCR, but conduit seems to be pretty good. It seems to me they are all about the same---they all work but are inferior to Gore-Tex in breathability.
