I'm not usually a big fan of GORE TEX, but the axiom is the lightest, stretchiest, and most breathable GORE waterproof shell I've ever used. I've even kept it on for long ski touring climbs amid stormy weather, and managed to have it stretch with my movements and get breathability that far exceeded any other GORE shell I've used before. I don't know how it stretches like it does, but this definitely allows it to move with you as you hike or climb.

*I was given this from OR to test.

I've used the original version of this (Helium 1.0) in far flung mountains with nasty weather, often as my only shell. The new Helium is lighter, has a softer fabric, packs small, but is still amazingly durable and waterproof for such a small piece. As long as you aren't doing highly aerobic activities, it is great as a wind/warmth layer as well (think long rock routes).
