    Fabric Search/ Breathable waterproof

    I am looking to make a pair of waterproof mittens such as MLD e-vents. I have Sil-nylon, but for the palms I need a breathable water-proof material. Any ideas? Pertex, E-vent or other... The stuff I see out there that is water-proof I am not sure it's breathable. Looking for a source. Thanks

    There is a fabric out there called Epic. From what I hear, it's both waterproof and breathable.

    I think someone on the forums made a tarp/undercover with silnylon and that.

    Here are a couple of links including Gore-tex

    I have purchased from both with great experiences.

    Mad777, I am a dope. I looked at those vendors and couldn't find anything. I didn't know what wpb stood for so I never opened that link. Thanks!!! Just what I was looking for.
