I work for W. L. Gore and Associates Inc. We are the makers of Gore-Tex fabric. We were the first manufacturers of waterproof breathable fabrics. There are now many imitators on the market, but we have the edge in experience and technology. I am a mechanical engineer and at one time I used to design the equipment to test our materials against our competitors. None came close, they were either not waterproof, or did not breath. I’m not sure what’s out there for kayakers from Gore, but we do make the over-water flight suits and survival suits for the military and commercial fishing industry, so we’ve got the experience. Here is the link I’d recommend.
