I'm an EMS lover. www.ems.com It's cheap and effective stuff, I've found, and they have an awesome return policy. But the best time to buy is late winter/early spring ... Second, there is no cheaper place for gore-tex XCR -- if that's your poison -- than www.cabelas.com.
>>Are Marmot jackets worth the money?<<
my marmot java jacket i bought off sierra for only $100 is sweet. it's their membrain material, not gore-tex, but it works just as well i think--windproof, breathable, & waterproof.
