I have some L.L. Bean Gortex that I bought several years ago. I have yet to get wet in the gear. I experienced deluge thunderstorms in sand creek wilderness in the black hills of Wyoming as well as horizontal rain. And had to hike out through high grass and brush the next day, I stayed dry and plenty of air circulation so no perspiration. Same gear also kept mer dry when we paddled the Missouri River in the Missouri breaks and the badlands. Had intermittent rain, deluge and thunderstorms almost every day. Again, I stayed dry and comfortable.
"If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it." Lyndon B. Johnson
