Hi everybody, just found these forums a few weeks ago and I have been lurking around. I was looking for a relatively cheap shell, and picked up a pair of the North Face Freedom Pant Shell for $100 the other day. But then I saw some Sportif USA Goretex Shells at sierra trading post for approx the same amount. How does the Hyvent north face lining compare to the classic Gore Tex. If this is approximately equal, I will probably keep the north face pants, as I know nothing about Sportif USA or their warranty and have no idea what to expect from those pants. Has anyone ever tried these before, b/c they look like a good deal on paper.
