In reply to UKC Gear: Nice pics of sunny La Grave. Any info. on how this fabric's breathability would be in the particularly unAlpine British climate of wetness and moisture?

im a huge mhw fan, loved their conduit, have dealth with them a little and always found them a happy bunch.

but thats gotta be the lamest press release ever. how cheesy are the fabric subtitles?

im sure its great stuff - mhw usually come out good with their innovations (tho there have been exceptions), but the silly techno-speak and crappy video needs work.

if they pay me in shiny gear i will do it:)

(that red packs just a scrambler, been around a while. endorsed by ueli n all)

In reply to UKC Gear: genious marketing, advertising a new waterproof material using photos of people climbing in sunny blue skies.

In reply to Richard Gilbert:

From the backpackinglight forums, it seems that DryQ is simply a re-branded version of eVent, so that Mountain Hardwear can use both Goretex branded Windstopper as well as eVent fabrics without dealing with a branding war. Similiarly in that vein, Polartec NeoShell is a rebranded version of the air-permeable Toray Entrant membrane.
