The jacket breathes but is waterproof. Same material as ski gear, and unfortunately in the same price range.
The new model is the Netti D3 I think.

• The Flash Gordon provides extended protection and is good for up to a couple of hours in continuous rain.
• If you're heading into exposed areas for a day or longer or often ride in the rain for more than a couple of hours, then choose the Storm Trooper or She Shell for maximum protection - with its tape sealed seams and hood. And remember, if it all gets too grim then it's okay to hunt down a warm fire and a pint of Guinness.
