Thanks for the comments - Especially the Epic review, GraniteGuy.

I narrowed it down to three similar rain shells, all similarly priced:
Marmot's Precip
North Face's Venture
Mountain Hardwear's Epic

1) Marmot - Ruled out almost immediately due to bad reviews. Overwhelming number of people say that after two years, it loses its repellancy. It was the cheaper of the three. Also, Precip is the least breathable/waterproof out of HyVent, eVent, and GoreTex.

2)Venture - I have to include a North Face product. Most of my extreme gear is North Face, and I love everything I have. This jacket uses HyVent 2.5L, which is great for water and good for breathability (my insulated jacket is a HyVent Alpha, which is noticeably more breathable than 2.5L). It also stores in its own pocket, which is cool. Breathability isn't the deciding factor as this jacket has pit zips and mesh pockets.

3) Epic - I've never really used or considered Mountain Hardwear, but included this as it was comparably priced for features. GraniteGuy's review also contributed to my opinion on this one. This one was high in the running because MANY people remarked that it kept them dry in a deluge, and that the jacket was very breathable. I've heard wonderful things about Dry.Q - most people compare it to eVent opposed to GoreTex, and the rumors of Dry.Q and eVent's breathability are compelling.

So it came down to Epic vs. Venture. Outdoor Gear Lab also rates these very similarly: http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Rain-Jack ... arid_array[]=49368&gearid_array[]=49700&gearid_array[]=49376&sort_field=2#compare

I initially chose the North Face. While not a dealbreaker, I like a jacket that can stow in its own pocket. Not to mention, I have alot of trust in this brand, and also have experience with HyVent 2.5L... which I like. The North Face was also priced to compete with the MH.

But then came buying time. The $70 North Face jacket was available in putrid or boring colors. I like to be visible, and if given a choice, prefer orange (most of my gear is a matching orange - vanity on the trail... I know). How much for the SAME FRIGGIN JACKET but in their new Orange color? $100. That's right - $30 less if you want "ZOUR" over orange. REI-Outlet carried the MH Epic in the orange I wanted for the $70 price point (out of all sites, they were the ONLY one that still had the orange marked down). I basically considered these two jackets to be functionally equal, so being unwilling to compromise in the color department effectively made one $100 and one $70 (BTW... if I was willing to take ANY color, I found both brand new on ebay for around $60).

At the end of the day, I picked up the Mountain Hardwear from REI-Outlet.com. I think it might be slightly more breathable than the North Face, equally repellant, and I was able to find it in the orange I like.

Thanks again for the input.

 Re: Sherpa gear
The casual clothing and shoes have nothing to do with your workout sessions. For getting maximum benefits and working out without any kinds of issues, it is highly recommended purchasing quality fitness gear. I would highly recommend the shoes from Nike and clothes from brand.
