The butt of my eVent ski pants are wearing out and get damp way too easy. They have lasted about ten years, so no complaints. I am looking for some new pants, and I am partial to gore tex. While more expensive than some of the other stuff, at least I know what I am getting. I have a gore tex shell jacket and I have found it to be more water resistant then the eVent pants.
Question is, are all gore tex pants basically the same, or is Arcteryx for example, light years better than Marker's gore tex offerings? Let's just say the price difference between the two is significant. With that said, I will pay extra to keep my ass dry, if there is a difference. Pete
