Is the Gore-Tex Respiration Positive fabric just eVent technology being licensed to Gore-Tex?? I can't find any technical information about this fabric.

Hey. Your answer is NO!!! :)

It is the only waterproof breathable Gore system that doesn't have a polyurethane lining on it. Because most Gore is used against the skin, the polyurethane lining makes the Gore layer wearable--prevents the lining from sticking to you as you perspire, but also cuts down on the breathability a tad. Since this system is never meant to be used next-to-skin, Gore foregoes that lining, increasing breathability and can only be found in shelter materials.

Hope this helps!
