    For that price it should be GORE-TEX, not some waterproofing that will out in a couple seasons.

    I’m pretty sure you can get an amazing ski jacket from Mammut or Arc’teryx that will last 20 years for the $450 this style piece costs.

    Not impressed with the review.

    Barry, Gore-Tex is not the only company capable of making waterproof fabrics/membranes. They are one of the most well known but my favorite waterproofing technology is actually from eVent. Mammut is quite capable of making a high-end waterproof/breathable fabric and did an excellent job with their DRYTech Premium fabric featured in the Bristol jacket. To be clear, the Bristol’s waterproofing is not based on a sprayed on DWR coating as is the case in some jackets; it has a proprietary waterproof/breathable fabric branded by Mammut.
