Thanks for your comment Clark. I just wanted to pass on the breathability and waterproof-ness numbers for this amazing knit stretch fabric other wise known as DryQ Active. I realize this has not been your personal experience but contrary to your belief is does actually breathe. Anyway, as tested by a third party lab the DryQ Active fabric put out a breathability number of 15,000 gm/m2/ over 24 hours and a waterproof rating of 20,000mm. Although that is not the most breathable or waterproof fabric on the market at 115 grams/per m2 it is the lightest 3-layer knit with stretch that is waterproof and breathable that we have ever made... and I would argue on the market period. Cheers!

Dry.Q Active breathes extremely well. I have the non hooded, older effusion power jacket, with the dry.q active panels and my chest/front never gets sweaty, even on 10+ mile runs. If I have my ID/debit card in the chest pocket blocking vapor flow, the cards get drenched, but the rest of my front is bone dry (proof that sweat vapor is going through the fabric).
