A year ago I bought a nifty winter parka made from eVent---very nice and fancy, and they recommended it on their website way back when.  Now I find no mention of eVent, and instead they use Pertex, etc.  Anyone know why??  I know, I know, I emailed them already.

though i don't know, some quick research indicates that some of the Pertex fabrics are similar in function to eVent, but less expensive and lighter-weight per yard of fabric.
