Ive got a very lightweight RAB mountaineering waterproof jacket and thats eVENT, Its brilliant.
Trouble is, people tend to go with Gore tex because it was the 1st of its kind on the scene and thats all some people know or want. These days there are waterproof materials out there that rival it, Like eVENT.
Ive been looking at my winter riding attire, what do i get? at the moment a good waterproof jacket is what I'm going with, My endura shorts are water repellent to a degree but as long as my upper body is warm and dry i wont worry about my legs. I know this is a long running joke with me but I have a pair of micro fleece lined Lycra bib tights that are water repellent and when they are wet they are like a wetsuit keeping you warm. I am going to either look at getting some waterproof SPD shoes or go for the waterproof over boots .http://www.endura.co.uk/Product.aspx?dept_id=107&prod_id=26
I brought last year some Endura Windtex Clip-Biblong Padded Tights which have Windtex fabric front & sides (wind/waterproof & breathable) weren't cheap but did cracking job last winter just put my shorts over the top, also have some Endura over shoes not water proof but kept my shoes clean and feet warm no more waiting days 4 your shoes to dry off.

True! But if I have to tell the ideal outfit for winter then I will say its workout leggings, long boots and a hoodie. I feel this has become the universal outfit for girls in winters. Do let us know the review of the clothes you bought along with the picture.
