    Hi,

    Is there a tradeoff for rain jackets - between the degree of rain resistance and the jacket's breath-ability?

    I sweat heavily so this matters is the spring/summer.

    I have been looking at some Macintosh jackets - both bonded cotton and nylon. For the warm weather I expect they are sweatboxes?

    Also the Stutterheim look decent but same issue with overheating.

    any thoughts/guidance appreciated.

    Not even that. Should I just forget RAIN and Sutterheim by just buying a Mac or trench?
