I have only used it on my 1 hour commute to work and it's kept me dry where the Goretex jacket I've used on the same trip hasn't.
I can say that this jacket for commuting is very good and packs down to a very small size. To date I'm very pleased and the condensation is good compared to Goretex. I'm looking forward to a good 8 hour hike to really test it to see if it does remove the sweat. I ride with a merino single too.
I believe the condensation was leakage during heavy rain fall. It was for me.
Excellent info, Rodney.
I have the Paclite Gore-tex - probably a similar product (just not as good) so I cannot justify purchasing another jacket. A trousers though is a different story.
Damn the EU and their customs duty - it will have to be Amazon.co.uk.
