I like Gore-Tex and similar membranes well enough, Marco, but not for XC: unless it is brutally windy or cold I am usually steaming hot by 12-18 minutes into the run. Gore-Tex is just too sticky, heavy, loud and baggy (it has to be- it doesn't stretch) to be really good for XC.
A decent question to ask yourself might be "What downhill ski pant would I not mind running/jogging in?". There's my list.
(I do actually like the Venturi tight, but it's not happening with alpine boots).
